Herbal infused oils are traditionally made by macerating herbs in vegetable oil for a period of time. The vegetable oil serves as a weak solvent that removes some of the beneficial compounds from the herb that are oil-soluble.
At Essential Therapeutics, we make our own infused oils, using our unique two-step extraction process that creates an ‘extra strength’ product. Our infused oils contain a higher concentration of active oil-soluble herbal compounds than those made by the traditional method.
Infused oils are traditionally used topically for a wide variety of common complaints. Each infused oil has its own specific benefits that are well known in both traditional and modern herbal medicine.
Our Infused Oils can be used:
At full strength – with or without the addition of suitable essential oils * Added to other vegetable oils at a 10% concentration or more or made into ointments * Added to base creams, gels, shampoos, conditioners and on.
All our Herbal Infused Oils are made with100% pure & natural dried herbs of the correct species, locally sourced wherever possible.
