Cooking With Essential Oils
Imagine opening the doors to a whole new world of cooking, unleashing new dimensions of sensory pleasure. Aromatherapy can enhance your culinary creations in a multitude of ways, using essential oils to add more than just fragrance or flavor. Food is not merely fuel; it can be enjoyed as a multi-sensory experience that brings therapeutic value as well as nourishment.
The virtues of essential oils are well known, but their benefits extend beyond the treatment room. Cooking with essential oils can open up a wealth of creative opportunities in the kitchen. For years we have limited the use of essential oils to scented candles and massage oils, in the belief that they are unsafe to consume. But the tide is turning – more and more people are realizing the value of using essential oils to enhance our food.
Ancient civilizations recognized this a long time ago, understanding the power of essential oils to add depth and flavor to their food. Modern society lost these ancient cookery traditions as synthetic substitutes became more popular. Recent generations have missed out on the amazing sensory experience of cooking with essential oils, which not only produces delicious creations but also enhances the entire cooking process from start to finish. Just one or two drops can transform your kitchen into an fragrant paradise, filled with mouth-watering aromatic treats to delight the senses.
The beauty of essential oils is that only a tiny amount is needed to transform your dish from rather plain to something truly amazing. Being highly concentrated, every drop is a little powerhouse of flavor and packed with natural goodness. From condiments to desserts and drinks, almost any recipe can be enhanced with the right oil – experimentation is all part of the fun!
Healthy Cooking With Essential Oil
IMAGINE TRANSFORMING AN EVERYDAY DISH INTO SOMETHING EXTRAORDINARY – using only a drop or two of essential oil can enliven everything from soups, salads, to main dishes and desserts. Boasting flavor and fragrance, these intense essences can turn a dull, boring meal into something appetizing and delicious. Essential oils are fun, easy-to-use and beneficial, compared to the traditional stale, dried herbs and spices found in most pantries today. Healthy food should never be thought of as mere fuel for the body, it should be enjoyed as a multi-sensory experience that brings therapeutic value as well as nourishment.
For years we have limited the use of essential oils to scented candles and soaps, in the belief that they were unsafe to consume (and some are!).
