Tips to get started

A small amount of essential oil can make a huge impact 
on flavor in any dish. Keep in mind the following tips
 when using essential oils in your recipes:
  • Essential oils can be great substitutes for fresh herbs, 
  • citrus zest and juice, and spices such as oregano,
  •  lime juice, or ground clove.
  • Essential oils are potent. We recommend using
  •  only 1-2 drops at first, or even the toothpick method 
  • when cooking with essential oils: Stick a toothpick 
  • through the oil dropper to absorb the oil, then swirl 
  • the toothpick through wet ingredients. Give it a taste
  •  and gradually add more flavor to your liking.
  • Knowledge is key to a successful recipe. Always
  •  read the essential oil label before creating your tasty dishes.


Cook smart in the kitchen

Cooking restaurant-quality dishes can be time-consuming
 and expensive—but it doesn’t have to be that way! 
Spend less time in the kitchen and enjoy your flavorful meal 
using Vitality essential oils and these helpful tips:
  • Replace hard-to-find ingredients with a Vitality oil. For
  •  example, instead of buying coriander from the spice 
  • section, use Coriander Vitality™ essential oil.
  • Get the most bang for your buck. You need only small 
  • amounts of Vitality essential oils in your recipes, so you can recreate or concoct dozens of new dishes from the same bottle!
  • Spend less time cooking and more time savoring every bite. 
  • Cut down your prep time, including washing, chopping, 
  • and slicing ingredients, and add oils instead.
  • Savor the fresh flavor with each essential oil use. Have
  •  you ever made a dish that calls for a single sprig of
  •  rosemary, but grocery stores only sell fresh herbs in bulk? 
  • Dried herbs and spices quickly go stale, while Vitality oils
  •  retain their powerful flavor.
