Ahhhhhhh…… Goldenrod oil infusion.
You know, the only other time I made a Goldenrod oil infusion, the plants were in their later harvest stage (flowers beginning to fade), and I was concerned that I didn’t get very much medicine infused into my oil. I infused the flowers, leaves and stems in extra virgin olive oil for alllllllmost 6 weeks. *you know, when working with fresh plant material, you have to watch out for that decomposition smell (anyone who has made infused oil with fresh comfrey knows that smell I’m talking about LOL)*
The thing I love about making infused oils with dried plant material is that there is no water in the plant; therefore there is much less risk of spoilage as the oil infuses.
Sooo. Today I made a little bit of Goldenrod infused oil (extra virgin olive) with the last of my 2010 harvested Goldenrod stash. *sigh* *wave bye* I have to admit it’s a little sad when I get to the bottom of my jar. LOL There’s nothing like harvesting and drying your own plants. Purchasing it online just ain’t the same.
But I’ll do it now that I have to.
