Creating an herb infused oil sounds a lot more complicated than it really is. There are a few different ways to make an infused oil, but the first thing you need is fresh herbs.

Choosing and Drying Herbs

I collect spearmint, plantain leaves, lemon balm, dead nettle, calendula, St. Johns wort, rosemary, and sage from my yard and garden regularly through the summer. There is an abundance of it this time of year so I try to preserve as much as I can to last through the cooler months! Pick your own or source from a high quality herb supplier- just make sure the plants aren't grown with pesticides and chemical based fertilizers or you'll be absorbing those same chemicals into your skin- yuck! Always do your research!

The smell of fresh lemon balm instantly takes my mind to warm summer days. 

Not only does it smell beautiful, it has a long list of uses as well. One of my favorite ways to keep that summer vibe all year long is to make an oil infusion. There are several different methods, but I prefer to let the sun naturally infuse the oil. Slow and steady always gives me great results. As far as which oil to use, there's no wrong answer. I like using almond or avocado oil, but coconut or olive oil work just as well!
