Herbal Infusions

Here are some simple herbal infusions that you can do in your own kitchen. After boiling the infusions for an hour I let them sit in a dark closet or cabinet anywhere from 2-6 weeks. These oil infusions can be used in various hair and body products just be sure you drain the herbs from the oil before using. Please note that you can substitute apple cider vinegar or water (distilled or floral) in place of the oil. Here's a great video on infused herbs.

Here's a recipe for a sage rosemary infusion. Remember you can adjust the amounts to your liking. Also you can grind these herbs into a powder by using a coffee grinder or food processor if so desired.

2 Tbsp Sage
2 Tbsp Rosemary
1 1/2 tsp Burdock Root
1 tsp Nettle
1 tsp Lavender
1 tsp Hibiscus flower powder
1/3 cup Coconut oil
1/3 cup Rice bran oil
1 cup Jojoba oil
1/3 cup Avocado oil
  • Makes 8 oz.
