Infused oils can be used as-is directly on the skin or as a carrier with essential oils to further enhance your therapeutic blends. Our infused oils are made exclusively for Pompeii Organics. The plant material is soaked for several weeks (in the sun) in organic jojoba or olive oil. The oil is then strained and new plant material is added for a double infusion. The result is an oil that has the beneficial properties of the plant. The aroma of these are generally not strong like essential oils. They smell herbaceous and mellow. Try replacing the oil part of your favorite salve, lip balm, or body butter recipe with an infused oil. These are for external use only.
