i’ve been trying my hand at making some tinctures and infused oils.
dried calendula in sweet almond oil. i love the little curved calendula seeds!
dried comfrey in extra virgin olive oil
three tinctures in the works, from left to right: cramp bark, valerian root, and st. john’s wort.
i’ve been using instructions from the mountain rose herbs youtube page, and am pretty excited about making our own healing salves, lip balm and lotions. i purchased all of these dried herbs at our local co-op, but am also growing and drying herbs from our garden, including calendula and lemon balm.
and for some reason, having all these labeled jars filled with mixtures and concoctions around the house makes me really happy!
