There are so many ways to use doTERRA’s oils and some of the ways are just plain Fun! One of my readers wrote in to tell me about how she and her daughter decided to flavor up their homemade cupcakes by adding some of the oils to the frosting. You can definitely add a drop to the batter itself, but the frosting is a great idea as well. The Tangerine oil was their favorite because the taste just adds a punch of citrus and in the wintertime it can make you feel more sunny and happy. Kids love experimenting with the oils and cooking, so this can make a great activity to keep them busy and occupied, plus they get to eat what they’ve created afterwards. Some of the other oils that you can use to flavor cakes and frosting are: Lemon, Grapefruit, our Wild Orange, Kumquat, and the Lime oil. ~ I hardly ever talk about our Tangerine essential oil so let’s focus on it for a few… our oil is cold pressed from the rind and some of the ways people like to use it are to help with emotional balance, anxiousness, digestive support, as an immune booster, for concentration and focus, a ton of skin targets, ( contact me for a list of these! ) hair and scalp support, respiratory targets, it can help to boost your metabolism and support weight management, it’s popular for the circulatory system, it can be used in a massage technique over muscles and joints for soothing comfort, and it can be added to your drinking water for cleansing and freshening of the mouth, plus it’s a great internal oil to use every day. Diffusing Tangerine oil in a room will brighten up moods and make your whole house smell fresh and clean for hours at a time. Only 4 to 5 drops in a water diffuser is all you’ll need.
Have a great day! Jana
