oil that comes from the lavender plant is highly scented and
is a common ingredient used in making perfumes and toilet waters.
When you are
growing the plant for its oils, gather the flowers from it as
soon as the flowers are faded, thats when you will get the most
oils from it.
To make the
essential oil itself: Soak the flower heads in a large glass
bowl in olive oil, enough to cover the heads. Let it sit for
24 hours then strain through cheese cloth.
Voila, you have
your own homemade lavender essential oil. This works best on
a small scale of course. Hope your readers can use this tip.
