To prepare the herbal infusion, take a handful or two of dried herbs like lavender, rosemary, rose petals, mint or any other required herbs, and transfer them in a glass jar. Pour oil over the herbs to let them sink in completely. You can use olive oil, almond oil or any other oil you desire to use. Further, cover the jar with a muslin cloth or tissue paper and tie a thread tightly around its neck to seal it completely. Place the jar near a sunny place and let it sit there for 2-3 weeks. In between, do shake the jar once or twice a day. After the infusion period, strain the oil using cheesecloth to keep the herbs out of the infusion, and your herb-infused oil is ready.
