Making Herbal Infusions and Extracts
Water-Based Herbal Infusions:
To make an oil-based herbal infusion, it is best to use a double boiler or crock pot with a low heat setting. It is crucial that you do not overheat the oil. Add 2 ounces of Sunflower Seed Oil, Olive Oil, or other desired vegetable oil and 1/2 - 2/3 ounce dried herbs (if using fresh herbs, double the amount used) to your double boiler or crock pot and stir well. Use the lowest heat setting. Allow to heat for two hours, stirring every few minutes. Then, carefully strain the oil by using muslin. Straining the oil at least twice is recommended. If botanical material remains in the infused oil, the oil can go rancid.
"I want to take a quick moment and let your company know that I was extremely pleased with my last purchase. I have ordered from FNWL for two years, and this last purchase even exceeded your previous boxes. The box was so well packed. Everything was in order, I felt like it was safe, and it was concisely packed. I don't know when you changed your packaging style, but I would like to say that it made a HUGE difference. Presentation means so much in business, and your packaging was very professional and worthy of noting. Thank you again for the great products - they remain superb."
