Basil Infused Oil
#1.  There are a variety of different methods to infusing oil with basil. Probably the easiest and most traditional method simply entails putting the oil in any kind of container, probably most easily in a clear bottle along with the basil herbs.

The container can even be left out in the sun, as this accelerates the infusion process.
