Infused Oils

Infused oils are where a particular plant has been allowed to steep in a particular carrier oil for a certain length of time.  Both fresh and dried plants are often used and infusion may be assisted with heat or not.  Length of steeping time is often determined by the water content of the plants, the higher the water content the less time the plant stays in the liquid, but also the more frequent that the plant matter is changed out for a fresh batch (most often slightly wilted to decrease water content).   Most plants that I create medicine with have been personally wildcrafted and ALL have been wildcrafted with care and due-diligence to the land from which they were taken from.
