How to Make Garlic and Herb Infused Olive Oil

by A Pizzi


  • 5 cloves of garlic, peeled
  • 4 sprigs of rosemary
  • 5 basil leaves
  • olive oil (amount varies on your container size)
  • a container for your oil
  • Instructions

    Step 1

    For the oil you'll need, olive oil, garlic, rosemary, basil, and a container to store it in. I found this one at Target, but you can use whatever you have as long as it can be sealed.

    Step 2

    Start by adding 5 peeled cloves of garlic to your container.

    Step 3

    Next, add 4 sprigs of rosemary.

    Step 4

    Looking good!

    Step 5

    Next, add 5 basil leaves.

    Step 6

    I find it helpful to roll the leaves into a tube so that they easily fit into the container.

    Step 7

    Lastly, add in the olive oil. Within a day or two, the olive oil will be infused with the flavors of garlic and herbs. Try it with bread, on pasta, or wherever else you please! Keep refrigerated.
