Adding essential oils to food and drinks opens up culinary possibilities.
For example, you can create unique and interesting flavors like chocolate orange, chocolate peppermint, and chocolate tangerine by adding the respective essential oils to chocolate.
Essential oils are naturally potent and powerful because they are highly concentrated and taken directly from natural sources and make them perfect for adding flavor to any dish. Because essential oils are so powerful, it doesn’t take much to add an extra kick of flavor to your favorite entrees, beverages, meats, desserts, and more.
For my cooking's purpose, I use the best quality oils from doTerra with citrus and floral flavors
When you choose doTERRA, you are choosing essential oils gently and carefully distilled from plants that have been patiently harvested at the perfect moment for ideal extract composition and efficacy. Each doTERRA essential oil is also carefully and thoroughly tested using the strict CPTG Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade® quality protocol
