Cooking With Essential Oils

Have you used your doTERRA essential oils for cooking yet?

Please share on my facebook page how you use them for cooking!

You definitely can as long as there is a supplemental facts label on it.

Why? Because they are pure and clear of all synthetics, 3rd party labs use doTERRA to compare other essential oils from other companies because of their proven purity.

How to use essential oils for cooking:

  • 1 toothpick dip = this means dip the toothpick into the essential oil and idp it once into the recipe, this is usually for for hotter oils
  • 1 toothpick swirl= Dip a toothpick into the essential oil and swirl it around in the recipe. This will be a little strong than the toothpick dip
  • 1/2 drop= Put 1 drop of essential oil on a spoon, use the tip of a sharp knife to obtain the desired amout of oil and add it to the recipe
  • Pretty much if it is not a citrus oil or vanilla use a toothpick, I put a full drop of black pepper into my guacamole and it ruined it.
  • Baking vs. cooking vs a non cooked food item. Baking you will need more of the essential oil, cooking you might use a swirl or 1 drop, a dip most likely a toothpick dip.
  • 1/2 t dried herbs= 1 1/2 t fresh herbs= 2-3 toothpick swirls
  • 1t dried herbs= 1 T fresh herbs= 1 drop
  • 1t citrus extract= 1/8 t citrus juice= 16 drops
  • 1T zest= 1/16 t citrus juice= 8-14 drops
