Cancer Survivor Learning to Thrive

At the age of 30, the last thing I expected was a breast cancer diagnosis. I learned a lot during that journey about TRUE health, PRIORITIES and LIFE! Once introduced to Young Living I found a balance of Wellness, Purpose and Abundance. Are you curious about essential oils?

Cooking with Essential Oils

Posted by Karalee
May 12, 2016

Imagine a burst of flavor that completely takes the taste of your food to the next level. That, my friend, is what essential oils can do. No matter if it is savory or sweet, a couple drops of essential oil can make your taste buds sing and your fingers run back for more.

I started my oily culinary journey with the citrus oils. Just a drop or two of any of the citrus oils in cool whip makes a lovely fruit dip. Add some cream cheese and gently fold it all together and you have a creamy dream for a strawberry. My personal favorite is the Citrus Fresh Vitality essential oil. It has a wonderful combination of citrus and mint to enhance any fruit dish.  Even a simple fruit salad dances on the tongue when you add a few drops. I also loved to add Lime Vitality essential oil to Black Bean Salsa dip. Just 2-3 drops of Lime essential oil, a bunch of cilantro, a can of black beans and a jar of salsa (we can our own) with a pinch of salt. Blend together and you have the best dip ever. And super healthy- look at those vibrant colors!

Another easy way to add essential oils, and their health supporting benefits, to your food is with Oregano essential oil. Just one drop in a pot of pasta sauce will bring out the Italian in everyone in your family. Go easy on this one. Seriously, one drop is enough. I also like to add Basil essential oil on occasion.

Next, I started to get a little crazy with my oils. Who doesn’t love cinnamon in the fall? While making some oatmeal chocolate chip cookies, I thought I’d add 2-3 drops of Cinnamon Bark essential oil- WOW! With each bite of the cookie, you can feel the warmth of the cinnamon bark oil in your mouth. I only added 2-3 drops in a whole batch of cookies that made 4 dozen bite-sized cookies. These are my new absolute favorite cookies.

My most recent challenge has been to use the super-yummy Dried Ningxia Wolfberries in pancakes and cookies. While I love the Ningxia Red drink, the berries are a great second way to get the antioxidants plus great fiber into our diet.  And who doesn’t like a good challenge to make warm, fluffy, comforting foods like pancakes and cookies healthy, right? I used my kitchen shears and cut the berries up into smaller pieces so they would be even throughout the pancakes.  Then I used the longer whole berries to make the smiley face on top. These were kid tested and approved, in case you were wondering.

The next recipe was to use the Ningxia berries and the Chocolate Pure Protein Complete in cookies. Chocolate berry cookies were a hit as well.  I love this Pure Protein. You can cook with it, put it in smoothies or milk shakes or just add water and shake it up for a quick boost.  If you have kiddos, or adults, who just don’t get enough protein, or could use more protein or just a healthy snack, this stuff rocks.  There are no scary fillers, but instead, YL does add in enzymes, ancient peat and apple extract and B vitamins to support energy. It comes in chocolate and vanilla spice. I have both and both are great added to cookies and pancakes. You never know what secret ingredients are in the goodies at my house!

My Daily Routine

No matter how you choose to get started with Young Living, any Starter Kit delivered to your home will make it feel like Christmas! I started with the Premium Starter Kit with the Everyday Essential Oils (shortly followed by the Starter Kit with Thieves! more about that awesome kit later). When you open up the beautiful box, you just aren’t sure which bottle to open and smell first! Which would YOU choose?

The first oil I opened was Frankincense. The smell was so grounding and comforting, no wonder it was a gift for the Christ child. It soon became part of my daily routine since I made a face serum with Frankincense, Lavender and Tea Tree essential oils and sweet almond oil as a carrier oil. Since essential oils are so potent, they can be diluted and still be very effective. All of these oils help support healthy skin, so 2-3 drops of this serum became a nightly routine.

The next essential oil I opened was called Joy. Who couldn’t use more Joy in their life, right? While Joy essential oil no longer comes in the Starter Kit, it is by far my favorite oil and totally worth adding to your first order. It makes a wonderful perfume and worn daily helped to support my emotional well being. I rubbed a couple drops of Joy over my heart each morning and a couple drops of Valor (or Valor II) on my wrists. The combination was powerful! I felt amazing and it didn’t hurt that I received compliments on my “perfume” everywhere I went. What gal doesn’t love that?!

And of course, the Lemon essential oil was cracked open and added to some cold water for a refreshing drink. I was able to drastically increase the amount of water I consumed, which helped me feel vibrant and cut out those calorie-laden sugary drinks. YL has so many yummy citrus essential oils to choose from! You can have a new flavor in each glass. I must say the Citrus Fresh is my favorite, but I love them all. The new Vitality line (with the white labels) makes it easy to identify the dietary oils which can be used for adding to beverages, or cooking! The lime essential oil is fabulous in salsa, just for one example!

So, no matter how you get started, it is simple and essential to add oils to your daily routine. Once you use and love the Everyday Oils in the Starter Kit, you will be so excited to try the over 500 amazing products from Young Living.
