Do Essential Oils and Honey Mix?

As I have been knee deep in formulating specifically with essential oils since the end of last year, and am addicted to making infusions of all types, this was a question that popped into existence all by itself one day: testing whether infusing honey with essential oils was at all possible.

Pictured above: the first attempt. A ‘dollop’ of raw honey was ‘introduced’ to bit of essential oil (I’d have to check my notes for exact amounts, but speaking from memory, it was 2/3 honey to 1/3 oil). The little cup you see above was the test vessel. After adding the essential oils, it was covered with a cling-type film and left to stand at room temperature.

Within 48 hours there was visible result. Find the rest of this story on the main blog.
