Fall Cooking with Essential Oils

Fall gives us a chance to change from our Summer foods to more hearty, warm foods. It is a season where we start to look forward to home cooked meals that are comforting and filling.

Meals in Fall tend to be more time intensive to prepare and based off handwritten recipe cards. We fill our kitchens with these hearty aromas that draw people in and close to us.

There are several ways to enjoy these favorite seasonal foods with essential oils. Replacing herbs and spices with essential oils is easy and can introduce wonderful flavors to your dishes.

I personally love using cast iron in the Fall for my cooking and seek out recipes to leverage those pans. Here are 2 wonderful recipes to try using oils in your dishes and pull out those well loved cast iron pans:

Pumpkin Risotto


  1. 4 cups bone broth or vegetable stock

  2. 1 cup canned pumpkin puree

  3. 2 tablespoons unsalted butter

  4. 1 shallot minced

  5. 1 teaspoon kosher salt

  6. 1 teaspoon chopped fresh thyme  (REPLACE with 1 drop doTERRA Thyme oil)

  7. 1 1/2 cups Arborio rice

  8. 1 teaspoon white wine vinegar

  9. 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
