How to make white lily oil at home
As previously stated, this oil can be bought, but you can also prepare it at home. Following Maria Treben’s recipe, this is how it is usually made:
- Your first step is introducing the flowers into a glass recipient, in our case a big jar with a wide mouth. Make sure you do not press onto them. Fill the ¾ of the jar with water.
- Your next step is to pour olive oil or sunflower oil on top, until you have got a layer that measures 2 fingers.
- Screw the cap tight and place the jar into a place that’s sun oriented. Let it sit for about 2 weeks.
- After 14 days, the oil is extracted and poured into small dark recipients. It will only be used externally, for the skin.
How to use:
The newly-obtained white oil lily will be applied on your skin (face, legs, neck, hands etc.) in a thin layer. Then, you can slowly massage the oily area.
This oil must be kept in closed recipients and placed in dark spaces. To make the white lily oil last longer, you can add a capsule of Vitamin E during the maceration process.
