I had read many articles and blogs about making your own herb/fruit infused fragrance oils so I thought I would try.
I started with the zest (grated peel without the white pith) of 2 Clementine Oranges.
I took approx. 1/3 c. light Olive Oil
I saturated the zest and sealed the jar. A couple times I day I shake the jar. 10 days went by. Shake, turn, spin. Shake, turn, spin.
Today, I opened the jar with high expectations of smelling a burst of orange essence or at least a light fruity scent. Right?
What I smell is the fruit zest fermenting- yuck!
It looks pretty. It smells yucky.
Any oil makers out there with an opinion or helpful hint?
