With so many uses of doTERRA essential oils, it’s hard to keep track of all the versatility. One incredible use you may not have considered is incorporating them into your cooking. Because of the high concentration of essential oils a little goes a long way, and the health benefits are plentiful.
There are specific oils we would encourage you to incorporate into your daily life.
Oils like Basil, Thyme, Lemon, Ginger etc, these are great examples of delicious and beneficial oils you can add to foods as flavourings and even add to beverages.
Please note we encourage you to check each and every bottle for their particular directions if use, as there are some essential oils which are not intended for oral consumption. For example WINTERGREEN.
Because doTERRA oils are tested and retested for their consumption safety, you know you’re getting the best quality.
Many companies add fillers and substitutions to enhance the scent and quantity of the oil, making them unsafe to ingest.
Since the oils themselves are highly concentrated, you really only need a few drops to gain the taste and full benefit of them, so your oils will keep.
Another important thing to keep in mind is diluting your oils in some form of lipid—like olive, coconut, or another oil alike. Diluting makes it safe to consume the essential oil, but also helps with dispersing it throughout the dish for better flavour.
You also want to cook with volatile essential oils differently with hot dishes, as heat can destroy these fragile oils. Once you’ve finished cooking your dish, stir in your diluted essential oil. For your baked dishes, you’ll simply lose a bit of the properties, but not much is to be expected.
