  • 2 cups olive oil
  • 1 handful herbs (fresh or dried)


  • If your herbs are already dried, skip this step. If your herbs are fresh, put them on a baking rack in the oven at the lowest possible temperature for around an hour or until wilted and dried. Remember, water and oil do not mix so we want the herbs as dry as we can get them.
  • Put the dried herbs and the two cups of olive oil in a saucepan. Cover and heat on the stove on the lowest possible temperature for an hour. You do NOT want to end up frying your herbs!
  • Allow your infused oil to cool and then pour it into a clean jar. You can pour it through a sieve to remove the herbs, or leave them in for the aesthetic (and so the herbs can continue to infuse).
