How To Make Natural Oil
So, here are some natural ways according to HGTV.com how to make natural oils from herbs that help to reduce hair fall.
- Dried, coarsely chopped herbs. Calendula (pictured), comfrey, plantain, St. John’s Wort, and lavender are popular ingredients for soothing oil infusions. Got fresh herbs? Learn how to dry them here. It’s easiest to work with dried herbs since fresh ones contain water which may lead to rotting or mold.
- Oil. Olive and sunflower oils are good choices. Be sure to use fresh oil so that the infusion will last longer.
- A glass jar. Canning jars work nicely, but any jar with a lid will do.
- A strainer and cheesecloth or fine-weave towel.
- Bottle or jar for storage. Amber glass blocks light and may help your infusion last longer.
How to make herb-infused oil:
- Prepare your jar. Make sure the jar is clean and very dry. Again, any water in the jar can lead to spoilage.
- Fill the jar to the top with herbs.
- Pour oil over the herbs slowly. Using a chopstick or knife, move the herbs around to make sure all air pockets are filled with oil. Add enough oil to completely cover all the herbs, filling right up to the brim of the jar.
- Cover the jar, give it a few shakes, and put it in a cool place inside your house. Every now and then, give your jar a shake. It will be ready to use in 3-6 weeks. The jar may ooze or leak a little, so place it on a plate or towel.
- Strain the oil into your storage bottles through a cloth-lined strainer. Give the herbs a final few squeezes to get the last of that herb-soaked goodness.
- Cork and label your bottles. The oil should last at room temperature for up to a year; two years if you add a capsule or two of vitamin E, a natural preservative.
