1. We grow and dry our own herbs to ensure freshness, but, you can always get freeze dried lavender online if your area doesn't allow for year round growing.
2. Pour the warmed oils over the dried Lavender and Calendula and let sit in a warm room overnight or cook on extremely low heat for 2-4 hours. Note: Fresh Calendula will create a beautiful orange balm.
