A few of my favourite herbs for oil infusions : Calendula (Marigold) - useful for a hair oil for red hair, also makes a soothing oil for irritated skin - ideal for a nipple ointment for breastfeeding mothers (wipe nipple clean before breastfeeding though). Combines well with Chamomile - another skin caring herb, also good as a hair oil for blonde hair. Comfrey - a soothing oil for stiff and aching joints - particularly good for helping to heal small fractures, damaged ligaments and tendons. Do not use on open wounds. Lavender - the familiar, soothing fragrance of Lavender is ideal for a relaxing, calming oil. Ideal for a bedtime bath or massage oil. Nettle - another herbal hair friend, good as a general hair oil, also makes for a soothing oil for irritated skin. Parsley - Ideal addition to a herbal hair oil for remedying thin or falling hair. Rose - a delicately fragranced oil, soothing for the emotions and good for dry or mature skin. Rosemary - excellent choice for a hair oil (for dark hair) - will condition hair and nourish the scalp; Rosemary also makes a wonderfully soothing massage oil for muscular aches and pains and bruises. Also helps deter mosquitos. Sage - another excellent choice for a hair oil - again dark hair, especially grey. Also useful for remedying dandruff
