Recipe Notes
  1. Pick 4 C. dandelion flowers and let them dry in the sun for 2 days. This will give you about 2 C dried (you can read how I do it in the post above).
  2. After the flowers have dried pack them into a quart sized Mason jar with a seal and cover them (fill the jar leaving 1” head space) with a carrier oil of your choice, my go too is avocado oil but you can use olive oil or coconut oil (melted). Add the lid and let sit in a dark cool area for 7-10 days. Make sure and keep an eye on the mixture you don’t want it to mold so be mindful on not leaving it longer than the 10 day.
  3. Strain out the flowers (over a clean jar) with a fine mesh sieve and use cheesecloth to squeeze out the remaining oil.
  4. Next use a double boiler (on low heat) and add the dandelion infused oil, Shea butter, and beeswax pellets to the pot (remember to add 1” of water to the bottom pot of the double boiler).
  5. When everything is melted remove from heat and add essential oils if you wish. Pour into smaller containers, let the mixture firm up and completely cool down, and then add the lid and store for future use.
