IMPORTANT: If you do this, make sure your essential oils are organic ingestable quality. Look for "pure & genuine" or "100% pure". If you're not sure, better to play it safe and not ingest them.
Pictured below is a fresh veggie platter with a choice of:
- Fresh salsa with Lemon & Lime essential oils
- Creamy dipping sauce made from sour cream, plain yogurt, and poblano peppers, with essential oils of Dill, Black Pepper and Lemon.
One woman said she adds a drop of Ginger essential oil to coconut cooking oil and bastes fresh salmon in this to cook - sounds scrumptious!
Here's one of my favorite easy recipes:
Amazing Edible Oil
In a 4 oz glass bottle or a small 4 oz glass jar, combine the following:
- 2-3 heart healthy oils, such as hemp, olive, and avacado (www.mountainroseherbs.com has a really nice variety)
- Dill - 6 drops
- Lemon - 4 drops
- Black Pepper - 3 drops
- Oregano - 1 drop
Variations: I play around and use a variety of base oils - sometimes flax or pumpkin, and I also change the essential oils. Just use 10-14 drops total of essential oils in a 4oz size of base oil. Some other essential oils I like are cumin, marjoram, coriander, lemon & lime combo .
Add 1 drop each Nutmeg and Clove Bud to fresh whipped cream.
Add 1 drop of Black Pepper to stir fried veggies over rice. (add at the end after it's off the heat, and toss to stir it in)
Add 1 drop each lemon, dill and tarragon to an oil & vinegar salad dressing
For some really delicious ideas I love the book "Weigh Less Eat Like Royalty" by Menkit Prince (formerly titled The Essential Oil Cookbook).
