Infused oils are highly beneficial for healing skin disorders, but also for keeping healthy skin healthy and supple. They are used for massage, for hair health, for moisturization, for protection, and for pleasure. But when approached incorrectly, you can make a smelly, unpleasant mess, an ineffective finished product, or an overheated, damaged, disappointing oil that will do more damage than good.
There are methods both ancient and modern for ensuring proper extraction of medicinal components into oils, and once you get the hang of it, the possibilities are almost endless. We’ll make some oils in class and sample others, and you’ll take home a healing salve and a body oil that we will make in class.
