Grind all the leaves with your hands or a mortar. You must crush them until you see that they begin to release a light oil. This is why they must be fresh and not dry.
When you have them well crushed, introduce them with the oil they have released in a container with airtight seal and cover them with olive oil. Then cover and let it marinate for two weeks in a cool place free of moisture.
After the time, you will have to change the laurel leaves for new ones to intensify the aroma. Simply pick up fresh leaves, wash them, mash them and add them to the jar with the oil, cover it and leave it for two more weeks.
Once these two weeks are over, you can strain the oil . To do this you will need a cotton or gauze cloth. Simply place the cloth or gauze over the container where you are going to reserve it for use and pour the oil over it. Then, squeeze the cloth as much as you can to retain as little oil as possible.
