PINE OIL

Based on nomas one, which is 330g pine to 800 rapeseed oil, but found theirs bitter as hell. this version a lot softer and nice scent of the forest.

Ingredients

  • 250G DOUGLAS FIR PINE NEEDLES (you will need about 600g branches for this)
  • 1200MLS SUNFLOWER OIL

Method

SET THE THERMO TO 90C, AND THE TIMER TO 12 MINUTES
ADD THE NEEDLES AND OIL AND SET TO SPEED 7, STAY WITH IT. ONCE THE NEEDLES HAVE BROKEN UP, SET TO SPEED 10 FOR 5 MINUTES. DROP BACK TO SPEED 7 FOR THE REST OF THE TIMER.
ONCE DONE, PLACE A LARGE VAC-PAC BAG IN AN ICE BATH, POUR THE OIL INTO THE BAG, AND AGITATE UNTIL COLD.
SEAL THE BAG AND REFRIGERATE OVERNIGHT, NEXT DAY PASS THROUGH A MUSLIN OR J-CLOTH, GENTLY SQUEEZE THE LAST OUT AFTER ABOUT AN HOUR.
SAVE EVERY DROP, STUPIDLY EXPENSIVE, (UNLESS YOU PICK YOUR OWN) AND YOU ONLY NEED A TOUCH FOR EACH PORTION, 3-4 DROPS. MAX 3ml
