Basil oil



30 grams

basil leaves

150 grams

neutral oil (I use sunflower oil)

Mix the basil leaves with the neutral oil. I use sunflower oil. Then blend it till the oil is 65 degrees Celsius. It will heat up from the friction. Now feel the side of the blender to check the temperature or use a thermometer. Then pour it on a sieve that’s lined with a kitchen paper to clarify it. I was out of kitchen paper, but you can use a coffee filter as well. It just takes a bit more time. Let this drain in your fridge. Now you can keep it in your fridge for 7 days or in your freezer for many months.
