- Dried Calendula Flowers
- Apricot Kernal Seed Oil
Take a pint mason jar and pack it with dried calendula flowers, leaving about 1.5 inches at the neck.
Cover completely with apricot kernel oil and give it a good shake. Let it solar infuse (sit in the summer sun) for 4 days, shaking once a day.
(Another faster option is to put it in a pot, 3/4 filled with water on the stove on LOW heat for about 6 hours. Be careful this way, because if it gets too hot the oil will burn, or the glass may crack. A crock put on low heat also works).
Take a thin bandana, old cloth shirt, or fine cheese cloth and strain all of the oil out into a clean jar and store away for later use.
