Lavender Oil DIY
Lisa G. Sweet Pantry Gal
Started making my own a few years ago. I grow and end of summer I put together for my own personal use and give a few away as gifts.
I keep bottle right in my bathroom, use after showering, add to bath especially for grandaughter who has extremely dry skin, also helps to tire girls out. I also add to water bottle for air freshner. So many uses!
Fill clean jars with lavender flowers.
Warm oil in microwave for 1 minute. Just to warm.
Pour olive oil over lavender, close lid and store on warm window sil for one week shaking every so often.
Add fresh flowers back to jar and pour strained olive oil over flowers, close lid and store in dark place for at least another week. After scent desired strain again and store in bottles.
Will keep in dark place 6-12 months.
