About Our Infused Oils

How we make our infused oils

Infusing oils with herbs through a slow infusion process can be a wonderful way to extract the flavors and benefits of the herbs into the oil.

For all of our infusions, we gather fresh herbs, flowers, roots and leaves at the time in their growth cycle when medicinal qualities are at their peak. Our herbs are either grown on our farm or ethically wildcrafted (grown in the wild, away from pollution and pesticide use). They are harvested by hand and air-dried(cured) to retain peak potency. Curing herbs slowly preserves their scent and medicinal properties. Heat can sometimes degrade the beneficial compounds in herbs, so air drying is preferred. Growing and gathering the herbs ourselves guarantees our first-hand knowledge of quality, freshness, and purity.

Occasionally, we will use ingredients that cannot be grown locally. These are purchased from trusted suppliers, and clearly labeled when used in our products

Once herbs have finished drying, they are infused in either avocado oil, grapeseed oil, castor oil or tallow. All of our oils(except when using tallow) are infused with herbals for 3 to 6 weeks, away from the sun. This allows for a slow and patient infusion of each plant’s herbal properties. It's important to keep the temperature consistent at around 100 degrees Fahrenheit during the infusion process.

After 3-6 weeks, we use a tincture press to squeeze out all the precious oil from the infused herbs. This handy tool helps you maximize your infusion by applying pressure to press out the excess oil from your freshly infused herbs. The infused oil is now ready to use in salves, balms or other recipes.
