You can add several spices together. Fill the jars with olive oil and close them tightly. After a few weeks the oil will change color and shape and become an oil with additional health benefits that are extracted from the plant while you will enjoy a series of decorative jars for the kitchen.Leave the plants in the oil jars and mix oil at a time as an addition to foods such as salad or cheese. When the oil runs out in the jars, take out the spices or herbs and use them as well.
