Solar Infused Oils

These are infused oils that are the "meat" of my medicinal salves. The herbs are placed in jars, covered with extra virgin olive oil, and then set in the sun for about 2 weeks. The heat from the sun extracts the beneficial components of the herbs and they are then fixed in the oil. The pictured oils from left to right are comfrey, St. John's wort, jewelweed, and marshmallow.
