Infused oils, also referred to as essential oils, can be inhaled though products such as candles, room air freshener sprays, and infused bamboo sticks within an oil holder. This type of aromatherapy is known as pharmacological. Infused oils can also affect the body physiologically when used as a lotion or massage oil. Psychologically, infused oils can produce an emotional response such as happiness and feelings of well-being.
While you can shop for infused and essential oils online or in a retail store, you can also make your own infused oils at home. Here is a way to create your own mint infused oil, using your own kitchen and ingredients that you probably already have on hand:
If you wash your mint leaves before you crush them, make certain that there is no water left behind on the leaves before you place the carrier oil onto them. Water can make your infused oil go rancid very quickly.
