I need help in making flavored oils. - Lu
When I want to change the flavor of a good oil, I always add about 1/2 cup of dried herbs or spices to about 2 cups of oil. If the herbs are not dry they may cause the oil to cloud and look spoiled.
A good oil to use is canola or olive both are unsaturated and heart healthy.
i lucked out & happened across some marked down LAVENDER baby oil - so I bought a couple bottles-- but then it occured to me - that when that is gone & I want scented oil for bath & body - that baby oil isn't really expensive & I regurally keep a variety of oils on hand - so a few drops of my choice into the baby oil & *POOF* - I feel all special :)
& at the Dollar General here - we now are so lucky to have a nice ethnic section - so VERY nice ointments are CHEAP & things like %100 PURE beezwax for hands & a very pretty Rose Oil & incredible bargains on exotic items --rare things that once could only be found in specialty catalogs !
I love the floral oils /carrot oil/ the list of what they carry these days is amazing !
I noticed several items listing PETROLEUM as main ingredient - like apple pectin - which I slather on neck & hands & lips -- and hair products
