I picked a lovely bunch of clean, dry Plantago leaves (better known 'round these parts as plantain). Stupid people poison them.
I chopped the leaves.
I packed them loosely in a glass jar. I covered them with olive oil.
I placed them in my dehydrator, set at about 100 degrees F and set the timer for 3-4 hours.
I'll continue this process every day for the next several - until it FEELS ready to strain. But more on that when the time is ripe.
So that's how I started this oil today, for there really are as many ways to make an infused oil as there are herbalists to make them, or as there are moods of any one herbalist. Like I like to say:
Follow your inner knowing.
Listen to the seed of wisdom within.
Now - go make some oil!
