*NOTE: Please only use pure, food-grade therapeutic essential oils for cooking. Many essential oils that are sold are not 100% pure and can be adulterated. These are not meant for consumption. My essential oil of choice is Young Living. Learn more about where to get good quality essential oils HERE.
