Making oil infused with arnica

Herbal Solar Infused Oils

To solar infuse an oil, one must place dried herbs in a jar, fill with an oil, seal and place in the sun.  Over the course of 8 weeks, heating and cooling will slowly extract the supporting herbal properties out of the herb and into the oil.  Once the process is complete, the herbs are strained out of the oil, leaving a beautifully therapeutic oil that can be incorporated into a formula.

The list of herbal infused oils we produce as single ingredient oils include:




lemon balm

cramp bark


We also infused multiple herbs to produce herbal blends like our Good Night and Good Day Oils.

These oil blends are proprietary formulas that are unique to our label.
