How to Make Lavender Essential Oil (infusion)

How to Make Lavender Essential Oil (infusion) All herbs are great stuff for us! Like, share and repint! :)
How to make lavender essential oil. ( Technically this tutorial makes a lavender tincture or extract which is a little less potent than a pure essential oil. Use this lavender extract to add fragrance and an antiseptic oomph to homemade cleaners. It works just as well as a pure essential oil but I have to use a little more of the lavender tincture since it is not as strong. No biggie since the tincture costs less to make than buying a teeny bottle of lavender oil.)
homemade lavender essential oil I have 6 or 7 lavender bushes, this could be an idea worth looking at again.
