Simply wash and peel the skin off the carrots and then grate the carrots with a hand grater or food processor.
Put the grated carrots in a crockpot and pour any kind of oil you fancy to cover.
On your crock pot’s lowest setting, ensure a warm temperature is maintained, infusing the oil for 1-3 days. Warm temperature setting should be used on your crockpot. Make sure you do not allow the temperature of the oil to rise above 100-105 degrees Fahrenheit. The oil will be orange in color.
As soon as the infusion process is wrapped up, put the carrots and oil mixture through a fine-mesh strainer or cheesecloth and strain.
Label and store the oil in a glass jar in the refrigerator until you are set to use it.
