Tulsi Oil Infusion - I used the cold infusion method with olive oil. I harvested this from my garden, but dried it first. I read that dried herbs have less chance of spoilage because there's less water content.

It was put in a dark cabinet for 4 weeks and taken out to stir and smell every couple of days.
