Ingredients to Make Infused Oil:
Instructions to Mke Infused Oil:
Use either the solar method or simmer method to make an herbal oil infusion, depending on how much time you have.
- Combine room temperature shea butter and 4 Tbsp. of the infused oil together in a mixing bowl.
- Note that the calendula flowers will have soaked up some of the oil during the infusion process. If there is extra oil, use it for a soothing skin oil or massage oil.
- Using an electric mixer or immersion blender, whip ingredients on high speed for approx. 5 minutes to combine and create a creamy, fluffy consistency. Place mixture in a clean 8 ounce or larger jar and screw on lid.
- For gifts, a few dried calendula blossoms sprinkled on top of cream makes a nice touch.
