One of the best ways to make your favorite dish or teat “Magical” is to use some infused oil. So when a recipe calls for some oil you would substitute some out with the “Magic” stuff to give it the botanical edge you are looking for. This magical stuff can be used in so many ways it would impossible to list them all here in the short time I have. Now its so easy to make infused oil pretty much anyone can do it.
So now anyone with some high grade botanicals and quality oil can make infused oil with little effort. Let’s review this great recipe and instructional video by the good people over at MagicalButter.com.

A breakdown of the items with information / examples are below.
Listed below is also a list of non consumable items needed.
Ingredients / Consumables
¼-½ ounce/7-14 g botanicals* per cup/240 ml
Important: Your botanicals should be decarbed.
* For best results do not pre-grind your Botanicals.
2-5 cups / 475-1180 ml Cooking Oil
Preferably coconut ; or use olive, grapeseed, sunflower, almond, walnut, sesame, avocado, macadamia, or peanut oil
NOT recommended are ordinary soybean, canola, and corn oil
1 tablespoon/15 ml lecithin** per cup/240 ml
**Lecithin is optional but highly recommended. Lecithin is an emulsifier used in cooking and in the pharmaceutical industry for binding ingredients in lipids (butter, oils, and fats). It helps to increase the bioavailability of plant compounds in your high-lipid infusions, intensifying the potency of the resulting extracts. Lecithin can be made from soy, sunflower, rice, or egg yolk. It is available at your local health-food or vitamin store in the form of powder, granules, or liquid. Any type is sufficient except in capsules, because they contain too many binders and fillers. Soy lecithin powder is processed to eliminate compounds that may have estrogen-like effects. Lecithin granules are made from soy powder mixed with soy oil, so they may contain estrogen-like compounds. Because liquid lecithin is three times as potent as powder or granules (it’s also three times as messy), use only 1 teaspoon per cup of butter or oil for your extractions.
