Glass jars with lid
Olive oil, sunflower oil, fracionated coconut oil, sweet almond oil, ...
vitamin E oil (tocopherol)
Fill the jar with 2/3 of herbs or plant material
Cover the herbs with oil, try to leave a few cm of oil on top of the herbs
Leave it in a warm place out of direct sunlight for 3 to 6 weeks
Give it a shake every now and then (ideally, daily, but it's easy to forget...)
Afterwards, strain the oil using a cheescloth to another clean, sterilized jar (be ready to squeese the cheesecloth to get the most oil possible, and get your hands completely greasy)
Label your jar with the name of infused oil (for example, olive oil with calendula) and date
Place your jar on a dry, dimmed place at room temperature. The oil will last as much as its "best-by" date
