Is it possible to make an oil or extract out of anything? And how
Say I wanted to make my own herbal etc. extracts..... say I wanted to make an extract or oil that smelled like say canteloupe...... is it feasible to cook some vodka and canteloupe and let sit for a few weeks will I have a tincture or extract that smells like canteloupe? When done with herbs wil these herbs retain their healing properties? If it is this easy the list seems endless but I'm not sure...... extracts seem easier because alcohol is antibacterial and I think oils require elaborate systems.
