 Lavender Infused Olive Oil
 
 
 
 

Ingredients

  • Enough lavender to fill a jar (fresh or dried)
  • Olive Oil
  •  

Instructions

  1. Pick lavender and save 18 cm(7 inches) of the stems.
  2. Make bouquets and tie a rubber band around the stems and tie a ribbon on top so that you can hang them.
  3. Hang them in a warm and sunny place(preferably a window) for 2 weeks, until they're completely dry.
  4. Strip the flowers of the stems and put them in a jar. Fill the jar almost to the top.
  5. Then cover the flowers with olive oil and fill it up to the top. Put the lid on and shake.
  6. Place the jar in a window sill that will see a good amount of sun. Let it sit there for 3-6 weeks.
  7. Pour the oil through a cheese cloth and transfer to a glass jar or bottle.

Notes

It's important that the lavender buds are completely dry. If not the oil is likely to become rancid. It seems to be hundreds of different ways to make lavender infused olive oil and this is just one of them. Maybe it's not the "best" method out there but it's the least complicated method I've found and I'm happy with the result.
