Anointing Oil

Needed:

  • Fresh mint
  • Unscented vegetable oil
  • Large jar
  • Cheese cloth

Gather fresh mint and loosely fill a large jar with it. Pour in an unscented vegetable oil to fill the jar. Cover tightly and let stand for 24 hours, turning the jar to stand upside down every 8 hours. Strain the oil carefully through cheesecloth, squeezing well. Refill the jar with fresh mint and pour the same oil back in. Let stand another 24 hours, turning every 8 hours. Repeat this process over at least a three-day period. The oil resulting from the final squeezing is a good anointing oil with the fragrance of the mint.
