I actually got outside and started to clear away the winter debris from my herb garden.I saw some green thyme and fever few can't wait to see what else I find.
Herbal Recipe
  Chamomile Baby Massage Oil
2-3 cups freshly wilted chamomile flowers
3-4 cups almond oil(enough to cover flowers)
2,000IU vitamin E oil
Place flowers in1quart canning jar,cover with oil to 1" from top of jar.Gently stir to remove air bubbles.Place plastic wrap on top of jar and then the metal cover.Tightly screw on cover.Shake the jar several times to blend the herbs and oil.Place in a south facing sunny window and allow to infuse for 1 month.Try to shake the jar daily for 30 seconds or so.After one month strain thru a very fine mesh,like muslin or even better a coffee filter.Strain as necessary to remove all plant material.Squeeze flowers to get all that wonderful oil out.Add the vitamin E and stir well.The oil should be golden in color.
To Use;
After a warm bath pat skin almost dry.Apply small amount of oil in a circular motion(always toward the heart) until completely absorbed.Wait about 5 minutes before dressing.
 this recipe from hands On Healing Remedies by Stephanie Touries sounds wonderful.I can't wait to try it.
