Make An Infused Oil
excerpt from: Abundantly Well: Seven Medicines
by Susun Weed

Oil and animal fat coax a variety of healing compounds out of fresh plants.
Dried plants, with a few exceptions, will never make a great oil.

* Calendula oil calms inflammation and irritation.

* Chickweed (pictured) oil softens and dissolves cysts and scars.

* Comfrey oil is tricky from fresh; heals tears and breaks.

* Plantain oil stops itching, hastens deep wound recovery.

* St. Joan's wort oil eases burns, muscle soreness, nerve pain.

Fill a dry jar almost full with finely-chopped fresh herb, then fill with any edible oil/fat.

Cap tightly. Label (on lid). Put in a smallbowl to catch ooze.

Steep, out of direct sunlight, for six weeks.

Sieve plant material from oil, squeeze well.
