I first filled a jar with lavender flowers. Then I poured olive oil over the flowers until they were covered. After tightly sealing the jar (I placed a piece of plastic wrap over the top then screwed on the lid) I placed the jar on a sunny windowsill.
If I wished, I could have put fresh lavender blooms into the oil and repeated the process to infuse more fragrance into the oil but this oil has a lot of fragrance already.
What do I plan to do with my lavender oil?
I'm eager to try using it as a massage oil. (Anniversary coming soon!) I'm also guessing it will work well in my homemade lotion.
Simple, green, frugal - my kind of project!
Note: This lavender infused oil is not to be confused with lavender essential oil which is made by a distilling process.
