A perfect relaxing massage oil for the evening.

  • 1/2 cup each lavender flower buds, rose petals and chamomile flowers
  • 2 cups almond oil
  • 2 teaspoons liquid lanolin (optional)
  1. Place herbs in a jar and cover completely with oil. Stir, close the jar and keep warm for a couple of days.
  2. Strain out the herbs. If you wish to add lanolin to make the oil a little creamier, strain the herbs while the oil is still warm and stir in the lanolin until well blended.
  3. Pour the oil into a pretty bottle and store in a cool place.
