Essential Oils, Recipes

Why cook with doTERRA essential Oils?

I love herbs and spices!  Notice I didn’t say I LOVE cooking with herbs and spices?  I will be the first to admit that I am not a lover of cooking.  I can never get my head around the time it takes to make something delicious versus the seconds that it takes everyone to eat it and then there’s the clean up!  I’m aware that it is something that has to be done so I just suck it up and lucky for me , I have a gorgeous husband who is a bit of a foodie and enjoys the odd dinner making during the week 🙂   I also love using my pure essential oils.  At first I didn’t get it! I wondered why I would use the oils when I had a perfectly good shaker bottle of oregano on hand?  Then I realized that dried herbs typically lose up to 90% of their healing nutrients and oxygen molecules when dried.  My little bottles of oregano, thyme, black pepper, cilantro etc… are just sitting there readily available for when a recipes calls for them.  They intensify the flavours of the dish all while enhancing my families health!

An easy way to start using oils in your cooking is to just substitute what is called for with the companion oil.  So if dried oregano is used, substitute with oregano oil.  If lemon juice is required, substitute with lemon oil – EASY!

Of course quality matters when using internally.  All of doTERRA’S essential oils are of the highest quality and those essential oils that come from edible plants such as thyme, oregano, basil, cilantro, marjoram, wild orange etc …. are safe to use internally.
