One of the most popular topics that people want to talk about is how to use essential oils in place of certain ingredients in recipes. Once people start to understand that doTERRA only offers the purest oils and that many are safe to use in cooking, they start to get excited about the possibilities. For example, if you’re out of fresh basil, use a drop of our Basil oil to liven up the dish. If you don’t happen to have a fresh lime for your cerveza, use our Lime oil for a boost of flavor. Cooks all over the world have found many ways to incorporate our oils into their kitchen routines and for the past several years I’ve posted recipes and ideas for everyone to enjoy and learn from.
