Rosemary and Garlic Oil

Beautiful fall is here…colors turns into a rich orange and rust and change the landscape of the mind and soul. My herbs are still abundant and I am getting ready for winter by drying and preserving.

FallRosemary along with its fragrant smell has medicinal properties. This is one of the oils I make that is super simple and easy and can be used for dipping bread or salads or anything else that needs and good topping of oil.


I have made others with sesame or jojoba oil that can be used for aromatherapy and the process is the same. You do want to add extra rosemary leave in that case.

  2. That view out of your windows almost distracted me from reading your post. But I read it and love the idea of seasoning olive oil with herbs and garlic. I’ve got some crusty bread waiting to dip!
