  1. Heya guys, I have a question. I heard that olive oil should never be heated up too much, or it would turn carcinogenic. Is this true? And will that harm us, should we apply the infused oil topically? What do you think of coconut oil as a substitute?

    Thank you!

  2. Hi there, great question! It sounds like you may want to make a mint extract. I’d recommend checking out the Mountain Rose video on how to make herbal extracts. This may be the answer to your question. I hope that helps out a bit!
    Thanks for the question,

  3. Hi
    I want to make a peppermint essence oil for using in my fudge do you any ideas for that , i have a mint plant in my garden can i use that.

  4. Thanks for your wonderful videos. Is it a better idea to make single-herb infused oils, or would it be all right to make an herbal combination and then make an infused oil out of that (for the purpose of making a salve)?

  5. Hi John, I was wondering if Neem Oil can be made using this process? If so, what carrier oil would you suggest?
    Thanks in advance, Gwen

  6. Yes, you can make rose infused oil this same way, but you would need to use petals from roses that were bred for fragrance. Many roses are bred for appearance and have little scent, so get some roses that were bred for fragrance and use the same process shown here. If you want the scent to be very strong you may need to repeat the process a few times by straining the petals out of the oil and then placing fresh petals in the jar and covering it with the same oil. Hope that helps.

  7. hi can I do this same process with rose petals to make rose oil? how would I give it a strong rosey scent?

  8. Great video! I actually have an herbal infusion going with babassu oil and neem leaves. Do you suggest adding vitamin e for preserving?

  9. Hi there, you know, I don’t have any experience with coffee infused oils. But I’d probably go with grinding the beans first as you mentioned. I’d imagine the constituents would be absorbed more easily with ground beans. However, I’d also recommend doing some Google searches on this first, someone out there probably has some great advice on this subject. Sorry I couldn’t have been more help.
    Warm regards,

  10. Hi there, you are going to want to use dry herbs, or at the very least, wilted herbs, if you are going to be making an herbal oil. The reason is because fresh herbs contain moisture, and this moisture could cause the oil to go rancid. I hope that this helps, and thanks for the question!
