Essential Oils: How To Use - Flavoring Your Food
Pure essential oils have a wide range of therapeutic uses and benefits. The method applied can affect your results. In this article I will talk about using essential oils for flavoring your food to the absolute delight of your taste buds!

NATURAL SWEETENER ~ Add a drop or two of citrus, spice, or floral essential oil to a cup of honey, mix well and let stand, OR put a couple of drops of essential oil on a piece of paper towel and lay it on top of some sugar that's been placed inside of a jar. Cover the jar with a lid and let stand for a week.

Both of these methods will add the natural flavor of your essential oil to the honey or sugar lending a distinguishing note when you use them in your tea, baking and cooking.

DRY BAKING INGREDIENTS ~ Per cup of dry ingredients, such as flour, dispense a drop or two of a citrus, spice or floral essential oil onto a piece of paper towel for your sweet baked goods like cakes and cookies. Use a drop or two of herbal essential oil on a piece of paper towel for flavoring your savory baked goods like breads, tortillas and crackers.

Seal the piece of paper towel with drops of essential oils in a jar or other container with your dry ingredients and let stand for a week.

SALAD DRESSING, SOUPS, STEWS AND SAUCES ~ You can use the herbal essential oils to flavor olive oil for salad dressings, or add a drop or two to your soups, stews, gravies, or sauces. Be creative!

PLEASE NOTE: To maximize their benefits and flavors add essential oils at the end of the cooking process.

Citrus ~ Lemon, Sweet Orange
Spice ~ Cinnamon, Clove
Floral ~ Lavender
Herbal ~ Rosemary, Fennel, Carrot Seed, Thyme, Marjoram, Basil

Properly administered essential oils are a natural, safe and effective way to enhance your health and well-being and can produce satisfying results where other methods have failed. Please consult with your physician regarding your health concerns.
