Great gifts to give to teachers, hostess, family members. Take tall glass bottles and add oils and put in herbs and let set so oil takes in the herb flavor. Tie raffia and cloth bow on top with manila gift tag with type of oil, like Rosemary olive oil.
The trick with flavored oils is to make sure there isn't a trace of moisture anywhere, in the bottle or the ingredients. Adding fresh herbs or garlic is iffy. Dried herbs are much safer. Even with precautions, it's still prone to mold. It can cause real health problems for people with mold sensitivity long before the mold becomes visible.
Because of the dangers, especially in my humid climate, I've switched to making flavored vinegars. They're versatile, taste great, and are too acidic to promote mold growth.
