DIY lemon infused olive oil

I am trying to infuse olive oil with lemon as gifts. I dried lemon peels for 24 hours before adding to the oil (even putting them in a cooling oven to ensure there was no moisture left), and I've kept the bottle sealed and in a dry, dark room for the last week and a half. Today I noticed that the oil is much darker than it was when I sealed it. It smells ok, but I'm beginning to lose my confidence. Is it still safe to use?

don't know the answer but you might check Michael Chiarello's book on Flavored Oils and Vinegars (he launched award-winning Consorzio line of infused olive oils in 1980s).
