Make an infused Lavender oil first:
-> Remove leaves and flowers from stems and place in a mason jar, slightly packed. Add in olive oil to cover. Use a bamboo stick or the handle of a wooden spoon to stir the oil to completely coat the herb. Add more olive oil to the top of the mason jar, place on lid and screw cap and lit sit 6 weeks. Strain out the oil using a sieve lined with an unbleached coffee filter. Store into sterilized amber bottles.
To make the Lavender Perfume Oil:
-> Add the Lavender infused oil into glass roll-on tubes (a small funnel really helps with this task!). To heighten the scent, add in Lavender essential oil (EO):
To use: simply rub on pulse points, like wrists, elbow creases, neck, etc.
My neighbor loves Lavender in any form: bath bombs, creams for the face and body, Epsom salt for the bath, room spray, etc. So when I found a bouquet of Lavender on my doorstep from a Lavender-scented elf in early November, I got quick to returning the favor. I infused the Lavender in olive oil the same day. 6 weeks later, in mid-December, the oil was ready. I had but to add a few drops of Lavender EO, and her Lavender holiday gift was ready to go!
If you want to turn the Lavender perfume oil into a hard product, then follow the directions to make a salve Here and pour into metal tins. Make sure you add the Lavender EO once you've done the freezer test to ensure the consistency is to your liking!
