...and does anyone make their own? I have a simple "recipe" for making essential oils using an almond oil base, and am wondering if this is really a FO and not an EO? ....Each day for four days place 1 cup of flowers (1/4 cup of herbs or chopped fruit peel) in the plastic bag, close the bag and lightly tap the materials within the bag to bruise them slightly. Do not beat the material into a pulp, this is a gentle process. Place the sweet almond oil and the flowers, herbs or citrus peel into one wide mouthed glass jar, replace the top and gently shake to mix. Make sure your materials have been saturated in the oil. Leave the bottle in a warm place, perhaps in your kitchen. Each day using the cheesecloth as a strainer, transfer the oil from one bottle to the other collecting your material in the cheesecloth. Squeeze the cheesecloth to transfer as much of the oil as possible into the second bottle. Throw away the old material and repeat the bruising procedure with a fresh batch of your flowers, herbs or citrus peel. Add the new material to the oil and gently shake. When the four days have elapsed, strain the oil through the cheesecloth one final time and using the funnel transfer the oil into the colored glass bottles. Place the stopper on the bottles. Congratulations - You have now made your own essential oil. So what I am trying to figure out is, is this making a true EO, or is it an FO, or is it something else entirely? Thanks! Rusty edited to add that I have a large rose garden and am wondering if I treated the rose petals with this process, would I have an EO/FO that I could use for soapmaking? I would love to have bars that smell like my roses!
