Let’s talk about to infuse carrier oils using the quick heat method.
So, I’m not the most patient person. When I make a decision to do something I typically like to do it right away. Spontaneous? Sure! Last minute? I’m in! Infusing my herbs in my carriers was no different. I noticed that my Peppermint and Melissa were ready for their first trim of the season (perennials from last season), I was immediately excited at the prospect of infusing my carrier oils and wanted to start creating right away. However, I didn’t want to wait six weeks for them to dry and infuse so I took some shortcuts. I was able to go from fresh herbs to infused oil in two hours flat! I infused my Melissa into solid coconut oil and my Peppermint into a jojoba/Almond Carrier Oil combination.
Now that your herbs are dry it’s time to infuse them into your carrier oil!
We would love to hear about your infusion creations! What herbs do you like using? What is your favorite use? What are your carrier oils of choice?
