1 large handful of fresh thyme sprigs
5 bay leafs
1 - 2 tbsp. dried lavender
2 c. olive oil
Pour olive oil into small Crockpot and stir in herbs. Set to the lowest setting and let cook for 2 - 4 hours, depending on strength of flavor desired. Turn off and let stand another 1 - 2 hours to cool. Strain herbs using cheesecloth or fine mesh strainer. Squeeze herbs to pull out all of the oil. Store at room temperature or in refrigerator in air tight container.
You can use this method to make a variety of different oils.
