I have many favorite things about spring—one of them being the fresh, sunny faces of dandelion blossoms popping up everywhere. Dandelions are one of my favorite herbs. Not only are they readily available, but they have so many uses such as dandelion fritters, roasted dandelion root coffee, dandelion kombucha, dandelion syrup, floral crowns… even freshly infused dandelion blossom oil.
Today, I’m going to show you how I take fresh dandelion blossoms and infuse them into oil to make fresh dandelion blossom oil. I’ll use this oil over the course of the next year to make salves, lip balms, salad dressings, and more!
Now, before we get to the “how-to” part, let’s quickly talk about infusing herbs into oil, specifically when using fresh herbs.
