Rosemary Oil for Topical Use
Rosemary Oil Recipe
- 8 oz mason jar + lid
- 1/3 cup dried rosemary
- 1 cup organic extra virgin olive oil, or oil of choice
- vitamin E if desired
Place dried rosemary leaves in mason jar. Fill jar halfway with oil. At this point, I like to use a metal spoon or knife to chop up the leaves in the oil; this may kickstart infusion of rosemary's essential oils. Fill the jar to the top with oil. Seal. Label with contents and date.
Place jar in a paper bag, and set on a sunny windowsill. Shake daily (or as often as you remember) for 2-4 weeks. Use cheesecloth or a coffee filter to strain out the herbs, retaining the oil. Squeeze out as much oil from the rosemary leaves as possible; discard leaves. Your oil is complete.
Add several drops of vitamin E if desired, to extend shelf life and support the skin. (Follow instructions on vitamin E label).
Rosemary-infused oil has been used topically on sore muscles and joints, to support skin health, and more.
