Cooking with Flowers

Updated: Aug 28, 2019

When it comes to cooking and baking flowers can be an important ingredient for adding flavor and uniqueness. Most flowers are edible and can be easily used in lieu of or as a compliment to sugars, spices and herbs. Not only is the taste and flavor enhanced and unique but the healing powers of flowers can be also easily ingested.


Lavender is a great essential oil flower to use for many things in the kitchen. From sweet summery flavorful lavender lemonade, delicate lavender frosting and cake to even more savory dishes like chicken and fish lavender is a fun ingredient to add.

The doTERRA Lavender essential oil is edible. Using 1 drop of this oil in your dishes is equivalent to a couple teaspoons of dried lavender.

The recipe for Lavender frosting and cake is found here:


This lovely essential oil can be used in breads and muffins for a wonderful aroma and taste. It also makes an very nice Geranium-Lemon cream cheese to use as a spread on bagels or toast or as a frosting for carrot cakes!

  1. 2 cups powdered sugar

  2. 1/2 cup softened cream cheese

  3. 2 Tablespoons softened salted butter

  4. 1 drop doTERRA Lemon essential oil

  5. 1 drop doTERRA Geranium essential oil

Roman Chamomile

Don’t limit this wonderful oil to just your teacup. The delicate aroma is also a wonderful baking ingredient that truly adds some wonderful tastes to your dish.

In this recipe for Lavender-Chamomile Scones you can easily replace the dried herbs for the essential oils. In this case you would use 1 drop doTERRA Lavender and 1 drop doTERRA Roman Chamomile.
