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.
