Easy how to make aromatherapy DIY
A great way to make your herbal bounty last, is to create essential oils out of it. Believe it or not, this can actually be done in your trusty Crock Pot. Take your fragrant sprigs, add some citrus peel and give the gift of aromatherapy.
Instructions
  1. Pick your herbs and peel the outer layer of your citrus fruit, being mindful of only getting the colorful part and leaving the white pith on the fruit.
  2. Tightly pack your jars with the herbs and citrus of your choosing. You can make combinations or keep it simple.
  3. Pour the oil into the jar of herbs until it covers them and then seal the jar tightly.
  4. Place the jars in a single layer in your Crock Pot, cover them with water, cover the pot and place the temperature on low. Allow the jars to sit for 8 hours.
  5. Pull the jars out and let them cool completely. Then strain them into a container with a pouring spout.
  6. Pour the oils into pretty glass bottles, cork them and dip the tops in melted letter sealing wax. (Just place it in the bowl of a double boiler, and it will melt beautifully)
