7 Essential Oil Infused Recipes

Essential Oils have many uses beyond aromatic use especially when you are working with therapeutic and food grade oils like dōterra’s. We have all used fresh and dried herbs to improve the flavour of foods and increase healthful benefits. As essential oils are much more potent then their herb/plant counterparts, they definitely pack a punch. Internal use is the most potent method of essential oil use especially when improving the health of the brain, organs and body overall.
