A light, floral-infused body oil that nourishes and moisturizes the skin.
Place the herbs into a medium-sized glass bowl, and pour the sweet almond oil over the top.
Perch the bowl on top of a saucepan filled halfway with water to make a double boiler.
Over medium heat, allow the oil to infuse with the herbs for 1 hour. Refill the water in the saucepan as needed, and keep an eye on the oil mixture to make sure it doesn’t get too hot. You want it to heat gently, not simmer or burn your herbs.
Once the oil has infused, carefully remove the glass bowl from the heat and allow it to cool to a comfortable temperature. It doesn’t need to be cold, but you also don’t want to burn yourself.
Using a cheesecloth or muslin bag, strain the herbs from your oil. You may need to repeat this step 2-3 times to get all of the herbs out.
Pour your infused body oil into a leak proof glass bottle, and add the vitamin E oil. This will last at least one year when stored away from light and heat, preferably in a dark bottle.
Apply a small amount of oil to the hands or directly to the body, then massage the oil into the skin. I've enjoyed keeping this body oil in a dark amber spray bottle, and spraying it directly on my body before massaging.
