Herbal Oil for Cooking or for a Salad Dressing

Flavoured oils can be quite expensive if you want to buy them. But luckily they are super easy to make yourself at home.

When using herbs in any oil, make sure they are properly dried. You cannot use fresh herbs in oil, because it will go rancid.

Although you can use pretty much any cooking oil, I always use and recommend Extra Virgin Olive Oil because it is not only readily available and not over priced but it has many beneficial health effects.

You can use any herbs that you like in your food, such as basil, bay, chives, cilantro, dill, mint, marjoram, oregano, rosemary, tarragon, and thyme etc. You can also add dried garlic granules.

Take a wide mouth jar and place dried herbs in. Cover with oil and place lid. Place jar in a cool dark place for at least a week. Alternatively, place jar, without lid, in a saucepan with water and turn hotplate to low and let the jar sit in the warm water for about an hour or so. Don’t let the water get too hot, it just needs to be warm so you can turn the hotplate off and let the jar sit. When the oil is ready, strain through some material or a coffee filter, bottle, put lid on and label.

Making healing oils that you can use in salves, balms creams etc for skin application you can make it the same as above using herbs of your choice. Dried comfrey, calendula and lavender are some examples of herbs for this use.
