For infused oil
Start a double broiler on medium heat and once it starts boiling reduce to the lowest setting.
Add herbs and then pour oil over them to saturate. If your coconut oil is solid, go ahead and melt it first, then add the herbs.
Simmer for 1 hour. Make sure the double broiler doesn't run out of water.
Remove from heat and let cool.
Strain out herbs with a fine mesh strainer.
Wipe out your double broiler and return to boil and then reduce heat.
Add beeswax and simmer until melted, stir occasionally to break up any chunks. Remove from heat and let cool slightly.
Add the infused oil and stir. If it hardens too much, return to low heat to melt again.
Pour into a jar and let sit until solid.
Store away from direct sunlight and use within a year.
