Why use essential oils in cooking?

The Young Living Vitality line of essential oils are designed so that we can explore pure, therapeutic-grade essential oils to flavor our favorite foods or as a dietary supplement. They are made from the purest and most beneficial part of each plant. So if you’re looking to boost the nutritional content in your diet in a simple way, this is a perfect way to begin!

Note: Only use therapeutic grade oils that are approved for consumption. Do not use any old oil from the store that doesn’t completely disclose about their plants, their farms, and guarantee a Seed to Seal, chemical-free process. If you’re going the extra step, why muck it up with a plant that was laden with weed killers or other chemicals? 


  • Put all ingredients in jar and shake it up! Yeah, it’s that simple!
  • Pairs well with a mix of greens, mozzarella cheese, diced red pepper, baby tomatoes, cucumber, black olives, and chicken (all optional).
