It's important to prevent moid from developing while infusing oil with herbs. Air bubbles are possible troublemakers because they can trap water vapors from the herbs and the vapors may promote mold. Get rid of any air bubbles in the herb and oil mixture by occasionally stirring it with a chopstick.

  1. For each 8 ounces of almond oil, add 4 droppersful of goldenseal tincture and I capful of each of the essential oils,- shake well.
  2. Label and date the bottle. This formula will keep for up to a year if stored in a cool, dark location
  3. To apply, shake the bottle well before each use. Apply liberally to damaged skin using a piece of gauze to dab the oil in place. Try not to rub the sore skin.

Moisture under the lid and around the insides of the jar can also encourage mold. Occasionally wipe these areas while the oil-and-herb mixture is setting.
