Basic Cooking with Essential Oils
Our essential oils complement any food. Here are simple tips to add more flavour and vitality to everyday food preparation ideas, explore these possibilities!
  1. Cinnamon essential oil has a sharper taste than cinnamon powder, offering the perfect touch to chicken, fruit, sweet potatoe, squash, breads, eggnog and fruit juices. As with all essential oils, remember, a little goes a long way.
  2. Basil, oregano and rosemary essential oils go well with italian dishes and liven up fish, vegetable soups and broth, savory breads, scrambled eggs, spreads and grains.
  3. Citrus oils like orange, lemon, tangerine and grapefruit, go well with chicken, seafood, fruits, vegetable salads, smoothies, bread, cake and cookies. Water enhances the bitterness of citrus oils, so use one drop in water-based mixtures to start and adjust slightly from there.
  4. Dill essential oil adds tanginess to potatoe, cucumber, tomatoe salads and coleslaw, along with fish, chicken, pasta and summer and winter vegetables taste amazing with a dash of dill.
  5. Thyme essential oil is fantastic in poultry gravy, clam chowder, gumbo, pasta, polenta, beets, green beans and egg dishes.
  6. For a refreshing change, include peppermint, spearmint and wintergreen oils in cold, ice or hot herbal teas.

Helpful Hints - Easy as 1, 2, 3!

  1. When essential oils are used alone, it's important not to heat essential oils beyond their flash point, so easily avoid this by lowering your stove top temperature, using essential oils with olive oil or other vegetable oils, or add the essential oils when the dish has been removed from the heat may be the best idea.
  2. The flavour of essential oils can dissipate over time, if dish was refrigerated, add oils to dish right before serving.
  3. We encourage the use of organic, natural ingredients, whenever possible.

Essential Oil Ratios
A great place to start! Use essential oils in dishes that you know would be good with dried herbs, spices or fruit juices, simply try a companion essential oil. Essential oils have a stronger flavour than dried herbs and spices. There are approximately 60 drops of essential oil in 1 teaspoon of dried herbs and spices, but essential oils are so potent, you only require a small amount to be sufficient. Start with the least amount of essential oil and slightly increase a little, until the desired flavour is reached.

  1. The juice from 1 lemon,orange, tangerine or grapefruit, can be replaced with 10-15 drops of its companion essential oil.
  2. 1 tablespoon of marjoram, oregano, sage, rosemary, thyme, fennel, dill, black pepper or coriander, can be replaced with 1/2 - 1 drop of its companion oil.
  3. With dishes that call for less than 1 teaspoon of a herb or spice, dip a toothpick in the essential oil and swirl it in the recipe, to blend it in.
    This method works well when using stronger essential oils, like cinnamon bark clove, ginger, nutmeg and oregano.

So delicious. So healthy. So Young Living Essential Oils.
