Garlic oil

I was at the LFS and they had a teeny tiny bottle of garlic oil for 15.95.
I make my own herbal oils and I was wondering if there would be anything wrong in making my own. The oil consists of pressed garlic steeped in vegetable oil for a couple of weeks. You strain and add fresh garlic every few days and it becomes quite strong. You can make a nice
sized bottle for about a buck.

Anything wrong with the veggie oil concept?

Hmm, I wonder if it wouldn't be better to use cod liver oil? I use this to enrich my homemade food. It is a source of HUFA for our fish. I know Aaron just uses garlic cloves and a press and squeezes it and collects the oil/juice from the clove and soaks his food in that.
