Each month our private Family Essential Oils community focuses on a a specific area to help us learn more ways to use our essential oils.
And during the month of December our focus is on food!
Because even though everybody knows food and the holidays go together, not so many know that food and essential oils are a great match too.
But it's true!
The taste of appetizers, marinades, casseroles, dressings, beverages, vegetables, desserts and sauces can all be made better with just a small amount of essential oils.
Incorporating essential oils with your favorite food creations is easy, too.
And, because essential oils are so concentrated, it normally doesn't take much at all.

... and those that are specifically for internal consumption.
There can be a lot of fun with food during the holidays.
And it can all be made even tastier and more fun with the use of essential oils.
