Homemade Essential Oil

I decided to give homemade essential oils a try. The process seems pretty simple. Take a clear jar and add a non fragrant oil to a good handful of what you want to turn into oil (I am doing lavender and peppermint). Set it in a windowsill for at least 48 hours, shaking at least every 12 hours. Strain, and store in a dark place or dark container. If the oil is not strong enough for you, add more to the oil and repeat the process until desired scent Is obtained. That's it!

We will see how this turns out! If it works well, then this will make for some nice gifts during the holidays!

Have you tried making essential oils? Any tips?
