DIY Lavender Infused Oil

It’s easier to infuse your favorite carrier oil with lavender than you might imagine. 1)First decide what kind of oil you want to use. This is your own personal preference – Fractionated Coconut Oil, Avocado, Grape seed, Almond, Jojoba or Extra Virgin Olive Oil are all good options. You can even mix oils if you want. I use Jojoba oil as it has a longer shelf life. 2)Next find a glass jar – a mason jar will do – Fill the jar about 3/4 full with dried lavender buds. 3)Pour the oil over the lavender, filling the container so flowers are submerged but can still move freely. 4)Place the jar on a sunny windowsill for 1-3 weeks – shaking daily. When you are ready strain the oil using cheesecloth into a new glass container and ta da you have infused oil.
