Summer Nights Body Oil | Vanilla + Lavender

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup coconut oil, or sunflower, rice bran oil - for neutral scent
  • 2 tbsp dried lavender
  • 2 vanilla pods

Instructions

  • Add the dried lavender and vanilla into a clean mason jar. 
  • You might want to cut the vanilla in quarters, so that it lays flat in the jar. 
  • Pour in the oil, 1 inch above the ingredients. 
  • Seal the lid and set the jar in a warm sunny spot for 3 weeks.
    Yes, it takes time. Every day shake the jar and check that both the lavender and vanilla are fully covered with oil. 
  • After 3 weeks - strain the oil using a coffee filter or a cotton cloth. You don't want teeny bits of vanilla seeds sticking to your skin! A coffee filter is the best option. 
  • Bottle the oil. If you want to intensify the scent - you can add a few drops of lavender essential oil.
  • Shelf life: 3-4 months
