A great way to use the oil extraction method to make essential oils
The ideal here is not only to create an oil that you can wear, but an oil with limited volatility that can actually be used in other projects as well. This does require a fair bit of scientific understanding, or at the very least scientific interest, so I totally nerded out when I started this project.
