How to Start COOKING with Essential Oils.

There's this really common natural progression of comfort when folks begin using essential oils. I am talking with and supporting people on my team daily when it comes to getting the most out of their Young Living essential oils, and every person jumps right in with using essential oils in their diffuser. It's the easiest way to get awesome benefits from these precious oils.


Then, when people get more comfortable with their oils, they start to apply them topically on their skin, either neat or diluted.

When they really gain their confidence, and by this time they are completely convinced in the power of essential oils to support their emotional and physical wellness, they begin to ingest essential oils. Yep, you can put a drop of lemon oil in your glass of water, for example. You can also cook with essential oils and that, my friends, is pretty fun.

The Young Living Vitality dietary essential oils are a great way to begin experimenting with essential oils beyond diffusing. The best part is they are FDA approved for dietary use. The Vitality essential oils from Young Living are also conviently packaged in a white label to keep them straight from your other essential oils.


Here are some oils I recommend you have in your arsenal for cooking:
  • Lemon
  • Oregano
  • Basil
  • Rosemary
  • Clove
  • Cinnamon Bark
  • Dill
  • Ginger
  • Lime
  • Orange
The easiest way to begin cooking with oils are by creating simple marinades for meats and vegetables. For example, 4-5 drops of a citrus essential oil, 1 drop of an herb essential oil, a few tablespoons of olive oil, and salt and pepper create a light marinade that you can apply with a brush. 


Creating fabulous, flavorful salad dressings is another way to begin cooking with essential oils. Just 2-3 drops of your choice of essential oil with some red wine vinegar and olive oil is all you need to jazz up any salad. 


The best part about the Vitality oils? Well, you can use these oils in other ways, too. Here are just a few examples:
  • Lemon, Orange, Lime - - One of my favorite citrus blends to diffuse right after work. 
  • Oregano - - This is a key oil in the Raindrop Technique
  • Basil - - A calming and refreshing oil. Sometimes I dilute this with a carrier oil and wear as perfume. Weird, but I love it. 
  • Rosemary - - Just a drop or two on the back of my neck or temples promotes feelings of clarity. I use peppermint for this, too. 
  • Clove - - A warm and inviting oil, but also widely used in dental practices. 
  • Cinnamon Bark - - An awesome oil to diffuse in the winter. 
  • Dill - - A calming oil when diffused. 
  • Ginger - - Historically has been used for digestive issues.

Well, first I'd recommend learning more about the Young Living Wholesale Membership. If you're going to invest in some oils, you might as well get them at the wholesale price (24% off retail!). To set up your wholesale account, all you need to do is:

1. Go here and select "Member" to enter your informationIf prompted, enter this Sponsor/Enroller ID number1880846
2. Choose a starter kit. (When I started, I bought the Premium Starter Kit with Home Diffuser and am SO happy I did!)
3. Optional: Sign up for Essential Rewards, which is a monthly auto-ship program. This is totally optional, and you can choose to sign up for the monthly auto-ship later, if you want.
4. Once you enter your payment for your starter kit, you're set! Just sit back and relax until your kit is delivered.

If a wholesale account isn't for you, and you just want to order a few oils to get started, just go here to set up your retail account, then feel free to browse the products. If prompted, enter this Sponsor/Enroller ID number1880846
