Use this as pain relieving massage oil or continue to Dandelion salve recipe. This recipe yields roughly 1 cup of dandelion oil. Adjust as needed.
What you need.
Pint size mason jar
Sweet almond oil
Dandelions (Flower heads)
Collect dandelion blooms. Note that the blooms shrink when dried so be sure to pick more than you think you need.
Lay dandelions out on drying clothes or screens to dry overnight to decrease moisture content.
After dandelions have dried, place them into a pint sized mason jar and cover them with oil, the kind of oil you use is completely up to you. I filled mine with half sweet almond oil and half olive oil. This does not need to be precisely measured out. Use your best guess.
Cap the jar and let set in dark room tempurature place for 4-6 weeks, giving it a shake every week or so. I let mine set for 6 weeks.
After waiting patiently, strain flowers out using a cheesecloth or small holed strainer.
When finished straining, you can use this as massage oil or move on to the Dandelion Salve recipe.
