DIY Lavender Infused Oil

Itโ€™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.
