I made this infused oil out of the same spices I use for my Italian Sausages. The paprika gave it a nice red hue. It turned out great for a dipping oil and made the most awesome marinara sauce.

It wasn't so good on popcorn, though. You just don't associate popcorn with sausage, I guess.

Italian Infused Oil:

I also made an oil infused with curry spices that was very, very good. For the third, I used a mix of garden herbs, but it didn't turn out very flavorful, so I'll be playing with that some more.

Thanks for the input guys. Michael, your advice was spot on.

Oil infused with fresh herbs should only be kept for a week or 10 days, so that would have been dangerous.

Less is not more. More is more and more is fabulous.
