DIY Lavender Extracts

This Tutorial Teaches You How to Turn Dried Lavender into Oil

— July 14, 2014 — Lifestyle
Blog Food52 teaches you how to make homemade lavender extract in the comfort of your own kitchen with this super simple how-to. Now you can have freshly made lavender flavor to add to your baked goodies whenever you'd like.

This all natural lavender oil is a great substitute to a store bought version. Not only is this oil all-natural, it has a much more flavorful scent and taste that is great for baking. To make this aromatic extract, begin by placing a handful dried lavender inside a bottle of two cups of vodka. Seal the bottle and store it in a cool place for one to two months. The vodka will extract the flavor from the lavender as the alcohol content dilutes over time leaving you with a deliciously floral extract for baking.
