These oils can include coconut, olive mct, and even peanut oil.
- Herbs of choice
Notes: When making large batches, you’ll want to use dried herbs to prolong the product's shelf life; fresh herbs contain water and risk spoiling the oil fairly quickly.
If you want to maximize potency, sunflower lecithin powder is suggested because it helps bind the ingredients together.
If you prefer fresh ingredients such as basil, garlic, or lemon peel, use them in smaller batches within one week.
