Place lavender flowers in a jar, top with oil, leave 2 weeks in a dark place, shaking daily. Strain the oil onto fresh flowers and repeat till perfume strength desired is achieved.  Strain into bottle. Use directly on the skin or pour a little into your bath.

You also can turn your lavender oil into a salve by adding beeswax/soy wax. In a double boiler (or slow cooker) warm the oil. Add wax and melt. The more wax you add, the firmer the set will be. Pour into warm glass jars.
