If you are reading this post, perhaps you would like to know how to quickly infuse your herbs at home, and we have at least one of the following interests in common:
- Learning about herbs, flowers and species
- Preparing natural remedies
- Creating natural beauty products
- Cooking healthy and delicious recipes
- Preparing your favorite beverages and infused oils
In order to accomplish any of the above, we have to start by obtaining the beneficial extract from our plant material.
The extraction process normally requires a lot of time, especially when macerating, oil infusing or when any of the “let it set” techniques are used.
What is infusion?
The process of herbal infusion has been utilized for centuries among some of the world’s earliest civilizations for cooking and medicinal practice.
Today, it is often found behind-the-scenes as the secret sauce of restaurant chefs and your favorite skincare brands.
By extracting the components of the whole plant, the full spectrum of superior nutritional, therapeutic, and medicinal benefits of infusions can be released.
In today’s post we are very excited to share with you how easy and fast you can infuse your favorite herbs at home with help of available technology.
It is pricy to prepare infusions at home?
Now… To be honest and realistic, yes, you need to spend some money on a proper infusion machine. Some money will help you to save plenty of your precious time and effort, which in return, you can wisely spend on other important things and enjoy time with your loved ones.
There is no need to wait four months, at a minimum, for your infused oil to be ready. Now, you can enjoy daily fresh made products on your table.
In addition, you can prepare freshly organic ingredients for your natural medicines, beauty products, and much more.
So, how does it work?
In the video below, you can see how easy it is to create rosemary infused oil with LEVO:
Ingredients for Rosemary infused oil:
- 2-3 tbsp fresh rosemary
- 1 cup extra virgin olive oil
- Fill LEVO pod loosely with fresh rosemary
- Press CYCLE and select DRY
- Add olive oil to the fill line
- Press CYCLE and select INFUSE
- Dispense the finished infusion in a jar!
Why infuse herbs at home?
Rather than always being tired of spending too much on “all-natural” products, only to find out they are full of additives and chemicals (As LEVO claims on their website), there are 5 main reasons why healthy people are obsessed with infusing herbs at home.
With solvents and preservatives popping up in so many “natural” products these days, the struggle is definitely real. Especially when all you are trying to do is make healthier choices!
Low-quality ingredients, incorrect labels, and false claims only add to the frustration, making it more challenging than it already is to eat healthily.
Here is how the creators behind the LEVO II are changing the health and wellness game with at-home automated herbal infusion:
1. You decide what goes in and on your body
You no longer have to worry if the infused oil you are cooking with contains any harmful ingredients like additives, solvents, or emulsifiers.
The LEVO II doesn’t require anything but herbs and oil to produce an effective product, whether that is a delicious lavender honey butter, a calming eucalyptus-infused lotion, or something in between. Plus, there is no risk of chemical leaching in the process since the plastic used in the LEVO II is FDA-approved food-grade plastic.
2. You can easily incorporate it into your daily routine
Its three different settings (dry, infuse, and activate) allow you to make the exact type of herbaceous product you need, from topicals to edibles (and even bath bombs and scented candles!).
Easily incorporate your herb creation into your day by adding it to your AM smoothie or your skincare routine, and head out the door feeling uplifted and healthy.
3. It is never been easier to infuse at home
No, seriously. Between the LEVO II’s easy-open top, precise temperature sensor, and digital display screen, at-home herbal infusions have literally never been easier. Synced with a simple-to-use app on your smartphone, you can set, save, and store your favorite settings and monitor your infusions. And when you are done, all you have to do is throw the components in the dishwasher. No mess, no cleanup, no waste.
4. You can reduce your waste and save money
Using a gentle infusion method with a silicone stirrer, the LEVO II minimizes the aeration of your herbs, preserving the flavor and prolonging the shelf life of your infusions so you don’t feel the pressure to use them up so quickly. Plus, with a prolonged shelf life, there is no waste to worry about from throwing out unused products gone bad. Not to mention the amount of money you save by making your own botanicals at home instead of paying a premium at the store for a product with not-so-recognizable ingredients.
5. You can shake things up with healthy new recipes
Just as friendly to homemade experiments as it is to tried-and-true recipes, the LEVO II leaves room for you to learn and try new things.
If you are looking for some guidance, recipes ranging from infused roasted brussels sprouts to warming muscle rub salve are all available in the free library of resources on LEVO’s website.
