We use a cold process infusion, we never heat treat our oils. We infuse organic plant material into a first pressed, organic extra virgin olive oil. Because of the type of oil we infuse into, there is the typical (strong) scent that is associated with cold pressed olive oil - so please take that into consideration when ordering this product.
