½ Lemon as wedges skin left on
1 whole Lime as wedges skin left on

Cool, strain the oil and refrigerate to use when necessary. This beautiful citrus oil lasts 5-7 days in the fridge. It will go solid in the fridge but spoon it out as required. It’s delicious!
You can leave the citrus in the oil if you wish.
