Transforming Your Spice Cabinet with Essential Oils

Did you know you can substitute most dry spices and herbs with essential oils? Compared to your ordinary dry herb collection, essential oils are far more potent and flavorful. With just one drop of essential oil added to your favorite recipe, you’ll experience a burst of fresh flavor with unique health benefits.

Creating Your Favorite Flavors with Essential Oils

 

Tip: Usually, one drop of essential oil is equivalent to two teaspoons of dried herbs. However, it’s a good idea to start with less and gradually add more to taste. Dip a toothpick into the bottle and stir into your recipe until you reach the desired flavor.
