Basil oil is just a beginning. You can really make a big splash with any leafy herb in oil, using this recipe. They also make fantastic gifts. I love this oil as a drizzle on a plate for a garnish. It is intensely green and beautiful. Bear in mind that may not be the case with all herbs!

Herb Suggestions: thyme, tarragon, summer savory, oregano, coriander, marjoram, chervil, chives, dill, mint, parsley, bay leaf, sage.

If you don't already have a herb garden in full swing, it is time to check out the Urbipod, you will never regret having fresh herbs at your fingertips year round.
