This past week I was given a diffuser recipe that I was told smelled just like the cocktail called a Mojito. I’m not a rum drinker so all I knew about this drink was that it made people feel like they were in Cuba or the tropics when drinking it. Sounded good to me so I was curious to try the diffuser rendition. ~ In any water diffuser, add 3 drops of doTERRA’s Lime essential oil, 2 drops Wild Orange oil, and 1 drop of Peppermint and Spearmint oils. Turn on the diffuser and get ready for the scent to engulf you! I actually really like this combo and so do my friends who I’ve shared the recipe with. Some of them even decided to try using our essential oils in the actual Mojito cocktail. Since the ingredients for the drink are club soda, sugar, rum, mint leaves, and the juice of a whole lime per drink, some of these can be switched out for essential oils. Try using a drop of Peppermint oil in the glass, plus use only half of the lime juice and add in one drop of our Lime essential oil. ( for the exact Mojito recipe, look for it on a search engine ) You can do this with so many recipes… cocktails, smoothies, meals, soups, baked goods, etc. And using the oils in place of fresh or dried herbs can be so cost effective too. It costs a lot for a small amount of basil or thyme, but if you have some of our oils you can easily substitute them for the herbs. ~ For more info on these ideas, type in RECIPES, or COOKING in the Search window at the top right of this page, Everything I’ve written about this subject will come up. And feel free to send me your own ideas and recipes… I love hearing from you!
Have a great day! Jana
