Carrier oil such as sweet almond oil, jojoba, fractionated coconut or grapeseed oil
To make your own homemade dandelion oil, first you will need some dandelions, though make sure that the dandelions you pick haven’t been sprayed with pesticides.
Gently rinse off the flower heads, making sure to get off any bugs or dirt. Then, lay them on a towel to dry out over night.
In the morning, add some of the dried dandelion heads to a jar. How much you use, will depend on how much oil you want to make. Cover the dried dandelions with your carrier oil - sweet almond, coconut, apricot, jojoba, grapeseed or olive oils. Cover tightly with the lid.
Set the jar in a warm, sunny spot for 2 weeks to steep. Check the oil every few days, gently swirling it every now.
After two weeks, place a piece of cheesecloth into a strainer.
Place the strainer into a funnel, which has been placed in another clean jar.
Pour the dandelions that have been in the oil filled jar into the strainer, into the other jar. Allow as much liquid through as possible, so you may want to let everything sit for 5 minutes or so.
Discard dandelions, and put a lid on the jar that is now filled with oil.Label and date the dandelion oil jar.
Now your dandelion infused oil is ready to use. Store in a cool, dark place, checking regularly to make sure that it smells okay. If it does smell bad, throw it away and make another batch. Oil can go rancid, so make sure to use your infused oil within 12 months of making.
