Things you’ll need:
1/2 cup chamomile flowers, completely dried and cleaned from any dirt
¼cup virgin olive oil
1/4 tablespoon rosemary oil extract
1 tablespoon vitamin E
How to make the oil?
Step 1: First, sterilize a small glass bottle. To do this, prepare boiling water and soak the bottle. Leave it for a few minutes and then leave to dry.
Step 2:Pour in enough olive oil until the bottle is¾full.
Step 3: Add the flowers and stir gently so as to soak them completely in the oil. Seal the bottle tightly.
Step 4: Place the bottle in a spot where it will receive direct sunlight for at least 6 hours a day. You should gently take off the lid every day and remove any moisture with a paper towel. Seal the bottle again and shake it well. Repeat this procedure for two weeks.
Step 5: Use fine cheesecloth to strain the oil into another sterilized glass bottle. Discard the flowers.
Step 6: Add the vitamin E and rosemary oil extract and mix well.
Step 7: Make a label and store the oil in a cool and dark place.
