Here’s some ways to successfully use oils in your favorite recipes.

When using oils in your dishes, it is important to make sure you are using pure high quality oils that can be used internally.

When you first try essential oils in your dishes it is often recommended you start out with a very, very small amount. The best way to do this is to insert a toothpick in the essential oil bottle and flick the oil into your oil. This allows you to temper the taste to your liking without overdoing the drop with the oil.
It is best to add oils after your dish is removed from heat. Adding oils while still on the heat source changes the composition of the oil and diminishes its flavor and aroma.
