Cooking with Essential Oils

Yup, you can cook with your essential oils.  Young Living has an entire line of oils called Vitality that are branded for ingestion.    One of the easiest ways to ingest oils is to put a drop of Lemon or Peppermint in your drinking water.  This is a great way to increase your water intake because it tastes so good. Plus, the Lemon is helpful for good body function!!

We all can't have fresh herbs in our kitchen but having essential oils is the next best thing!!  When you use your oils in cooking dishes that are baked or cooked on the stovetop, add them in at the very end of the cooking process.  This way the full flavor of the oil will be retained instead of cooked off.  You also need to remembe....less is more! These little drops of oil are really potent and you really truly don't need a lot to season your dishes. Start with only one drop and increase from there.

The Young Living blog has a great list of ideas of ways you can use your oils in your food prep.
