A note on the above recipe: there are actually two methods of making this oil. One would be to steep the dry ingredients in olive, almond or jojoba oil for several weeks until the oil is scented, strain and bottle. The other is to use the pure essential oils of the botanicals and add a few drops of each to the carrier oil until the scent seems right (generally 8 to 10 drops total per 1/8 oz. oil).
