Black Currant Oil - dIY rECIPE


  • Fresh black currants
  • Carrier oil (such as olive oil or jojoba oil)
  • Cheesecloth or a fine mesh strainer
  • A glass jar with a tight-fitting lid


  1. Harvest and Clean the Black Currants:

    • Collect fresh black currants. Ensure they are clean and free from any debris.
  2. Crush the Currants:

    • Use a fork or a potato masher to crush the black currants. This helps release the oil from the seeds.
  3. Combine with Carrier Oil:

    • Place the crushed currants in a glass jar and cover them with the carrier oil of your choice. Ensure that the currants are fully submerged in the oil.
  4. Infusion Period:

    • Seal the jar tightly and place it in a cool, dark place. Let the mixture infuse for about 2 to 4 weeks. Shake the jar gently every few days to enhance the infusion process.
  5. Strain the Oil:

    • After the infusion period, strain the oil using cheesecloth or a fine mesh strainer to separate the oil from the currant solids.
  6. Store the Oil:

    • Transfer the strained oil into a clean, dark glass bottle with a tight-fitting lid. Store it in a cool, dark place.


  • Apply the black currant oil topically on your hair or skin. It can be used directly or added to your existing hair or skincare products.


  • Conduct a patch test before applying the oil to ensure you don't have any adverse reactions.
  • The infused oil can be refrigerated to prolong its shelf life.

This homemade black currant oil is rich in antioxidants and can be a valuable addition to your natural skincare and haircare routine.
