Learn how to transform everyday recipes into something extraordinary. Besides offering 100 original recipes, this comprehensive guide shows you how and why to use essential oils, how to substitute oils for herbs, how to create amazing flavor groupings through blending, and more!

Imagine transforming an everyday dish into something extraordinary. Using only a drop or so of essential oil can enliven everything you eat—soups, salads, main dishes, and desserts. Boosting flavor and fragrance, essential oils can turn a dull, boring meal into something appetizing and delicious. Essential oils are fun, easy-to-use, and beneficial. They are much more robust than dried herbs and spices. Health food should never be mere fuel for the body. It should be enjoyed as a multisensory experience that brings pleasure and therapeutic value, as well as nourishment.

For years we have limited the use of essential oils to scented candles and soaps, believing that they were unsafe to consume (and some are). Now, people are realizing the value of using pure essential oils to enhance their diet.

Healthy Cooking with Essential Oil contains over 100 variations on traditional recipes. But more than that, it offers innumerable creative opportunities in the kitchen. Unique highlights:

  • Exhaustive directory of essential oils and herbs commonly used in cooking, along with some of their therapeutic properties.
  • Blending techniques for creating favorite essential oil flavor groups.
  • Quick substitution guides for spices and herbs.
  • Ways to use hydrosols (essential distilled waters) for marinades, dressings, and dipping oils.
  • Easy, super-fast recipes for seasoned and flavored salts.
  • Charts galore for knowing which essential oils to use for smoothies, flavored honeys, and more.
