I was introduced to essential oils many years ago. I love the many amazing benefits that essential oils provide, and that they all come right from nature. Essential oils are extracts from plants and are distilled from the bark, leaves, stems, roots and flowers of different vegetation from all over the world. Essential oils have been used by ancient civilizations across the globe for aromatherapy, personal care, healthcare practices, religious ceremonies, beauty treatments and in food preparation. I recently started incorporating dōTERRA brand essential oils into our family and love this addition to our healthy lifestyle.
Every month, I join my good friend and dōTERRA Diamond Wellness Advocate, Natalie and our team, for a dōTERRA product of the month party. We test out new ways to cook with essential oils and infuse our dishes with the oil of the month. Below is my collection of recipes I have created for this series and some of the many benefits of the oils.
Product of the Month: Rosemary
Most of you know, how much I love making hummus! There are so many different variations! When I found out the product of the month, I was excited to try rosemary in a white bean hummus! What a delicious addition! We also tried rosemary tea using fresh rosemary and added a few drops of rosemary oil.
Benefits of Rosemary:
Rosemary is commonly used in cooking and has a woodsy aroma. Rosemary also has many internal benefits, such as, supports a healthy digestion; supports respiratory function and helps reduce nervous tension and fatigue.
Product of the Month: Clementine
One of my favorite childhood drinks was an Orange Julius, which was a blended drink made with orange juice, milk, sugar and vanilla. When I heard this month's Product of the Month, Clementine, I immediately created my new healthy version of an "orange Julius".
Benefits of clementine essential oil:
The aroma of orange or clementine alone is enough to lift your mood and energize you! When taken internally, clementine supports healthy digestion and metabolism, is cleansing and purifying, and supports a healthy immune system and an inspiring environment.
Product of the Month: Grapefruit
Grapefruit is one fruit that I don't eat often enough. I was reminded how much I like it when experimenting with a new grapefruit vinaigrette and using fresh grapefruit in this spinach salad.
Benefits of grapefruit essential oil:
Grapefruit essential oil has a fruity, floral aroma that is energizing and mood uplifting. It is cleansing and purifying, and is frequently used for skin care to improve the appearance of blemishes. Grapefruit essential oil also supports a healthy metabolism.
Having fun in the kitchen with DoTERRA! This is my special cooking corner at Natalie's house! Reminding myself to use more grapefruit!
Product of the Month: Clove
Nothing says the holidays like the delicious taste and smell of clove. I usually use ground cloves in my holiday energy bites recipe, but tried it with a drop of clove essential oil, and it was delicious! It really brought out the clove flavor. These holiday energy bites have other holidays flavors, but feel free to make these any time of year!
Benefits of clove essential oil:
Clove essential oil has a soothing, warm aroma. When used internally, it has powerful antioxidant benefits. Clove oil also helps clean teeth and gums.
