Herbal infused oils are traditionally made by macerating herbs in vegetable oil for a period of time. The vegetable oil serves as a weak solvent that removes some of the beneficial compounds from the herb that are soluble in the oil. All our Herbal Infused Oils are made with 100% pure & natural dried herbs of the correct species, locally sourced wherever possible.
