Evergreen Oil
There are so many uses for an antiseptic, antibacterial, anti-tumor oil.

Collect needles and twigs of any aromatic evergreen: cedar, juniper, hemlock (tree), spruce, pine. You will also need a bone dry jar, some olive oil, and a label or two.

Fill the jar very full of evergreen needles and twigs. You may leave them whole or cut them. Make sure their uppermost tips are well below the top of the jar.

Fill the jar to the top with pure olive oil (or other oil of your choice). It is best if there is a “head” of oil floating over the evergreen. Cap well.

Label, including date, on front and top. Place jar in a bowl to catch overflow. Ready to use in six weeks.
