    ESSENTIAL OILS

    Many plants contain volatile compounds - essential oils - that can be extracted from flowers, leaves, roots, bark, seeds and peels. Each of these essential oils is highly concentrated and has specific healing properties. They can be soothing, antispasmodic, antiseptic, calming, warming, or stimulating, for example. The quality of the essential oil depends on a number of factors: plant species, region, soil conditions and climate in which the plant was grown; time of day the plant material was harvested; the extraction method used; and storage. It is believed that plants grown organically or collected in the wild yield the highest-quality essential oils. Extracting the essential oils is done through various methods, but the best ones are steam distillation and cold-pressing. Avoid synthetic oils and those extracted with chemical solvents. In all cases, vary large quantities of plant materials are needed to extract even the smallest quantities of oil; extraction methods are labor-intensive and expensive. Consequently, it's practical to purchase essential oils from reputable sources.




    high quality herbs


    QUALITY OILS

    Be sure your essential oils are of the highest quality and purity. Read labels. Make sure an oil comes from from the specific plant the product name indicates. It is wise to know Latin plant names. For example, lavandula is the plant name for lavender. Avoid blended and reconstituted oils and oils with synthetic or chemical additives. Anything labeled "fragrance oil" is not pure.




    steam inhalation


    ESSENTIAL OIL APPLICATIONS

    Nature's essential oils have extraordinary versatility.

    STEAM INHALATION
    Try inhaling fragrant steam to treat colds, sinus problems or coughs. Add 5 drops of Essential Oil to a bowl of steaming water. Drape a towel over your head and hold your face over the bowl. Breathe deeply.

    DRY INHALATION
    Put 1 to 3 drops of Essential oil on a handkerchief and hold it under your nose. Breathe deeply.

    HEALING COMPRESSES
    A hot, damp compress can soothe abdominal cramps, and a cold one can relieve fevers, headaches or sunburn. Add 5 drops of Essential Oil to 1/2 cup of cold or hot water. Dip a cloth in the water, wring it out and apply it where necessary.

    HUMIDIFIERS
    To fight the symptoms of colds, bronchitis and asthma, add a few drops of Lavender Essential Oil to a humidifier or vaporizer.

    HERBAL SAUNA
    Use essential oils in the sauna to aid the lungs and help strengthen the immune system. Add 5 drops of an Essential Oil, such as Tea Tree Oil, to 1 cup of water and pour it over the heated sauna stones.

    Extra Tip: Store essential oils in opaque glass bottles in a cool, dark place. Refrigerate citrus oils. Label oils clearly. Properly stored, essential oils will keep over a year.

They are fatty, plant-based oils - usually vegetable, nut or seed oils, such as Sweet Almond Oil, Apricot Kernel Oil, Olive Oil, and Wheat Germ Oil. Each has its own therapeutic value and add to the essential oil's value. Use up to 15 drops of essential oil per ounce of carrier oil. Prepare small quantities as needed.

    OTHER BASES

    There are several plant extracts for diluting essential oils and may be used in the same way as carrier oils. Witch Hazel is astringent; Aloe Vera is a moisturizing healer for burns, cuts, and irritated skin; and Rose Water imparts its scent and is antiseptic.

  • CONTROVERSIAL BELIEFS

    In Europe, the ingestion of essential oils is generally accepted, primarily because it is done under a health care provider's care. But U.S. herbalists are more conservative. Because their active ingredients are highly concentrated, essential oils can be dangerous if used improperly or in excess.






    MAKING HOMEMADE HERBAL OIL INSTRUCTIONS

    Making your own herbal oils from scratch is easy to do. Once made, these oils are suitable for a range of uses. They can be burned to add fragrance to the air, added to baths for a silky and heavenly soak, made into perfumes, used as a culinary herbal oil for cooking or salads, used medicinally internally as a dietary supplement (depending on herb and base oil used) and used as a massage oil for sore muscles, joints and ailment treatment.
    find a glass jar with tight lid

    Find a large, clear, clean glass jar or bottle with a tight lid.
    fill jar with herb

    Pack fresh. clean, whole herbs loosely into the jar. Freshly dried herbs and roots can be used, if needed. Make sure they are quality dried herbs and roots from a quality supplier with plant fragrance and color for their oils and healing qualities. Faded dried herbs with no aroma usually mean they are old.
    add vegetable oil

    Cover the herbs with oil. Use a high quality oil, such as extra virgin Olive Oil, but any good quality vegetable oil will work. Keep in mind your purpose when making your herbal oil. For an internal oil, use a culinary-base vegetable oil. For an external medicinal oil, use a base or carrier oil, such as Sweet Almond oil or another skin softening oil. Olive Oil is a good oil for general purposes. For fragrance herbal oils, use a vegetable oil without scent. Take a butter knife or stick and push herbs under oil, removing air bubbles before capping. Label jar.
    place in sunny window

    Put the lid on as tightly as you can. Set the jar on a sunny windowsill. This is best done in the summertime, but can be done in winter if you have a window that gets maximum amount of light, even in winter.
    shake jar daily

    Leave the jar on the windowsill for 30 to 45 days (6 weeks is usually recommended), shaking it gently once a day. Open jar and check oil for smell and for spoilage, especially the first week and then occasionally afterward. Plant parts not submerged in oil can become mildewed. The herbal plant exposed to oxygen will make the oil become rancid.
    prepare another jar for straining

    Find another large, clear, clean glass jar or bottle with a tight lid. Also a large funnel and some cheesecloth.
    put cheesecloth into funnel

    Arrange and pack the cheesecloth fairly tightly in the funnel.
    set funnel in empty jar

    Set the funnel in the empty jar, and wrap some cheese cloth around where the mouth of the jar meets the funnel to prevent spillage.
    pour oil through funnel to strain

    Slowly pour the oil into the clean jar through the funnel. The cheesecloth will strain the herbs, letting the oil filter into the clean jar. Tightly cap jar and store oil in a cool, dark place. Smell it occasionally. If it smells rancid, do not use it.

    YouTube: Making Herbal Oil With Fresh Herbs

    Oils infused with herbs are a lovely way to utilize the healing properties of plants which contain volatile oils and fats. Unlike essential oils they are easy to make at home and usually very gentle on the skin. You can use them to make massage oils, to heal skin problems, or to make subtly scented balms and creams. Plants containing volatile oils are generally those commonly used in aromatherapy. Aromatic plants such as Lavender, Rosemary, Thyme and Sage make wonderful infused oils, as do Peppermint, Lemon Balm (Melissa), Chamomile, Rose, Yarrow, Juniper and Pine.

    You can experiment with any plants that you know have a high volatile oil content. Also plants that have a high level of other fat soluble components; including fat soluble vitamins, antioxidants, resins and saponins, can be extracted by macerating in oil. Calendula is a good example. When you pick Calendula> flowers you can feel how resinous and sticky they are, a good sign they will work well in oil. Other suitable plants include , St Johnís Wort, Viola, Plantain and Mullein.

    You can use a variety of different oils as the base, or menstrum, for the infusion. Olive is classic for the leafy herbs, Sunflower is works well for Calendula, Sweet Almond or Apricot make a great base for creams and Jojoba is light and well absorbed.

    HERBAL OIL MAKING TIPS

  • In the summer pick or purchase Peppermint or Spearmint to make a refreshing oil
  • Experiment with mixes. Fill the jar with a mix of Chamomile, Vanilla and Lavender to ensure pleasant sleep. Mix Vanilla and Cinnamon to fill your kitchen with cooking scents.
  • In the fall try using Rosemary which also has astringent and healing properties as well.
  • Some herbs can be used dried, like Cinnamon, but for the most part, dried herbs can quickly lose their essential oils.
  • This does not make essential oil. This makes diluted herbal oil. There is no need to further dilute this oil.
  • Lavender is soothing, Cinnamon invigorating, Peppermint fresh. White Willow Bark has a spicy smell, sage is used by Native Americans for cleansing, Chamomile is used to soothe and help sleep. Do some research about your favorite scents, and see what you can find.
  • White Willow Bark (or any kind of bark or nuts or roots) may need to be soaked in water first, left in the oil longer, and/or used as freshly as possible.

  • THE SUN HERBAL OIL INFUSION METHOD

  • You can generally use dried or fresh plant material when available, though some herbs, such as Calendula work better as dried and others, such as Comfrey, are better from fresh.
  • If using fresh herbs, pick them on a dry day after the sun has dried the morning dew.
  • Make sure you pick clean plant material from an area you can be sure has not been sprayed with chemical fertilizers. This is particularly important as you are not going to wash the plant material, you want it to be as dry as possible to prevent spoilage, though you can bush off any dirt with a soft bristled brush.
  • If using leaves such as Comfrey or Plantain, it is good to let them wilt overnight to reduce some of the water content but flowers are best used fresh.
  • Chop fresh leafy herbs finely and lightly fill a completely dry jar with the material. Its important to cut the herb first as it exposes more of the plant to the oil, making for a better infusion. Flowers can be put in whole and dried herbs will most likely come already cut.
  • If using fresh herbs you can pour the oil of your choice straight on but if using dried, it is nice to gently warm the oil first in a double boiler pan (water in bottom pan, oil in top) or bain marie to get things going. Fill the jar almost to the brim with oil as an air gap will promote oxidation and spoilage.
  • Stir the contents with a wooden chopstick or glass stirring rod until all the bubbles have dispersed and cap with a lid or a piece of kitchen roll held in place with a rubber band. This works well for fresh plant material as it allows moisture to escape.
  • You can leave it to infuse on a bright sunny windowsill or in a nice warm spot such as beside the boiler or in an airing cupboard. Calendula is good in the sun but it is best to leave it somewhere that is consistently warm and windowsills can get cold at night which encourages condensation.
  • Stir every day for the first two weeks then leave to infuse for another two to four weeks, that is four to six weeks in total. Calendula and some other oils are nice to double infuse- leave for 3 weeks, strain, then fill the jar with fresh flowers and pour the partially infused oil back on top and repeat the process.
  • Do not forget to label your jars so you remember when to strain them. Strain through a sieve covered in cheesecloth or a jelly bag. If you used fresh material it is wise to let it stand for a week and check if any water has settled in the bottom of the jar. If so pour off the oil and discard the water.
  • Bottle the resulting oil and label and date.





  • THE HEAT HERBAL OIL INFUSION METHOD

    This is a quicker method if you need to prepare your oil for immediate use.

  • Use about 50 to 75 grams (2 to 3 ounces) of dried herb, or 75 to 100 grams (3 to 4 ounces) fresh herb per 300 ml (1 1/4 to 1 1/3 cups) base oil. This is an approximate amount as some herbs are bigger and fluffier than others. Basicially you want the oil to just cover the dried herb.
  • Place the oil and herbs in a double boiler or bain marie with a tightly fitting lid over a pan of gently boiling water.
  • Allow to infuse at a continuous heat for 2 hours making sure the water does not boil away. Stir every half hour or so and check the progress of your oil.
  • Strain and bottle or repeat the process if you desire a stronger, double infused oil.
  • Always remember to label and date your products.


  • You can also heat infuse your oils as above in an oven on the lowest possible temperature.




    SIMPLE RECIPES FOR INFUSED OILS


    COMFREY SALVE RECIPE

    Ingredients:
  • Melt the Cocoa Butter and Beeswax in a double boiler or bain marie over a pan of boiling water.
  • Add the Comfrey oil and stir slowly until completely dissolved. Do not allow the oil to start to bubble, turn the heat down immediately if this happens.
  • If you would like to add an Essential Oil then do so now, mix well and pour into jars. Leave to set in the fridge for a few hours before using liberally.


  • Comfrey has a long history of traditional use for healing damaged tissues such as strains, sprains, broken bones and slow healing wounds. Its common name was 'knitbone' and it possesses profound healing capabilities which enable it to aid in the 'knitting' together of tissues. It may also be helpful for inflammation and rashes. Comfrey oil is not recommended for internal use or use on broken skin but you can use this salve freely for bruising or any injury of the muscles or bones. Even if you have to wear a cast you can rub the slave into the skin at the top and bottom to help the bones heal strong and healthy.
