Chamomile, Vanilla & Lemon Infused Oil
Author: 
 
An oil that is great for all skin problems.
Ingredients
  • 2 tablespoons dried chamomile flowers
  • Half a vanilla bean
  • The peel of a small organic lemon
  • ½ cup of Linseed oil
  • 2 tbsp Almond oil
Instructions
  1. Prepare a clean jar and add the flowers. Take the peel from the lemon, making sure there is no white part attached to it, and split the vanilla bean in half. Add both to the jar, and pour in the oil. Proceed as described in the cold infusion, or use the warm infusion if you are in a rush, but make sure the oil never goes beyond 60 C˚.
  2. Once ready, this oil is great for treating skin redness, for dry lips in place of lip balm, for improving fragile nails, and for nourishing dry skin. You can also add this oil to nourishing hair and skin treatments.
  3. It also tastes and smells absolutely delicious, so you could consider making it with organic sunflower oil and use it for baking sweets in recipes that call for oil, or in a lemon coffee cake.
