I have always loved cooking; the smell, the taste, the way it bring people together, the incredible way it nourishes the body and the soul. Food suggests when it's time to slow down and provides a time to truly be in the moment. I am immensely in awe of food's ability to heal and I respect and admire the process of harvesting, cultivating and preparing live, natural and high quality foods. Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade essential oils are the most amazing of nature’s gifts. Essential oils maintain the strong and unique flavour of the plant where not always found in fresh herbs. Although I will always have a place for fresh herbs in my kitchen, I have come to love and rely on my CPTG essential oils when cooking and experimenting with new recipes. One drop of peppermint oil is equivalent to 28 cups of peppermint tea -- a little goes a long way! I add a drop of peppermint oil to my paleo brownies, a drop of ginger to my stir fry & 2 drops of lemongrass to my Thai soup. If you love to cook and prepare tasty and healthy meal like I do, consider essential oils as a great staple in your kitchen.
Disclaimer: The only oil I trust aromatically, topically or internally is CPTG doTerra essential oils. Not all oils can be ingested. Never take an oil internally unless you know it is meant to be taken internally.
