A few weeks ago, we collected calendula, echinacea, dandelion, plantain, lemongrass, lemon balm and bee balm from our yard, put them in a jar, covered them with olive oil and let it sit in a window for a couple of weeks. Then we strained out the herbs and composted them. We took the infused oil and mixed it with an approximately equal amount of grated beeswax, and heated it on low over the stove. Once it was all melted, we added in some essential oils, and put it in containers to harden. That's it. Easy Peasy.
