Homemade Floral Infused Oil

Creating a floral oil infusion using the low heat method is an alternative technique that helps speed up the infusion process while extracting more of the aromatic properties from the dried flowers. Here is a step-by-step tutorial on how to make floral oil infusion using dried Lavender, Calendula, Rose Petals, and Cinnamon Sticks together with Sweet Almond Oil using the low heat method.

Fill the bottom part of the double boiler or saucepan with water, and bring it to a gentle simmer over low heat. Next, fill a jar with Sweet Almond oil and dried flowers in a jar and place it in the double boiler. The low heat will gently warm the oil and dried flowers mixture, helping to speed up the infusion process. Keep the heat low to avoid overheating the oil.

Allow the oil and floral mixture to infuse over low heat for 2-3 hours. The heat will help extract the essential oils from the flowers into the Sweet Almond Oil more quickly than the traditional room temperature method.

After the infusion period is over, remove the jar from the double boiler. You can strain the oil using a cheesecloth or fine mesh strainer into a clean bowl or container. Alternatively, you can cap it and store your floral-infused oil in a cool, dark place away from direct sunlight.

By following these steps, you can create your own floral oil infusion using Sweet Almond Oil with a low heat method. When properly stored, it should last for several months. You can use the oil for massage, aromatherapy, skincare, haircare, or add a few drops to your bath for a relaxing experience. Enjoy the calming and aromatic benefits of flowers in your homemade oil infusion!
