To make your own FLORAL OIL, you will need extra virgin OLIVE OIL and this herbs :

Ocimum basilicum - Basil

Origanum vulgare – Oregano

Rosmarinus officinalis - Rosemary

Lavandula angustifolia - Lavender

Calendula officinalis - Marigold

Achillea millefolium - Yarrow - aromatic plant with thousands of leafs.

Optional, you can add some of your other favorite plants – like Salvia officinalis or common sage, Matricaria chamomilla, commonly known as chamomile, Lemon balm - Melissa officinalis, Peppermint or Mentha piperita, Thyme or Thymus serpyllum. The best plants ARE YOUR OWN PLANTS from your garden. Also you can buy them on the green market , or even the best and most powerful healing plants grows in the mountains. Wild rosemary, wild oregano, wild thyme, yarrow, Hypericum perforatum, known as St John's-wort ( it will make your oil reddish) etc.

Step 1:

First, pick some of your favorite edible flower and aromatic plants.

My favorite are these in pictures.

Step 2:

I am using Greek olive oil , extra virgin, cold pressed oil.

Step 3:

This is my home tools for placing plants and flowers in to the bottle.

Step 4:

After you put all plant material in to the bottle, carefully pour the oil in to the bottle.

Step 5:

Do this slowly to avoid this.

Wait for the bubbles to disappear and fill up with the oil to the top.

If you leave some leafs over the oil, they will oxidize and turn dark.

Step 6:

And VOILA !

You have your floral oil , ready to use in a few days.

Leave this bottle for a few days in a fridge. I am using the oil after three days - it smells fabulous already. You can filter your oil after two weeks , if you still have it :) :) :)

Step 7:

Floral oil has a healing properties for your skin, used topically, directly or with added bee wax making powerful homemade remedy for problematic skin and hydration and for every day usage for every type of skin, old and young.

To make this remedy - you pour some of the bee wax in a small pot and heat it just to melt, then add floral oil and mix. Be careful not to boil it , or the essential oils will evaporate. Chose your amounts just to make one or two doses for the small containers like this blue one on the picture.

Step 8:

This is mine / your final product.

Enjoy the NATURE AT ITS BEST !

I really enjoyed reading your post! It’s beautiful and inspiring many ideas in my head already! I make bath stuff, creams, teas etc which all have a purpose for the body to harmonize and whatnot, I have not made my own essential oils often and this is definitely inspiration to do so! You seem to have a sound knowledge base did you study this? I was wanting to take my self education further but am finding lack of classes in what I’m really looking for...
Thank you again for sharing!
