Cooking with essential oil:
Remember that the essential oil is a concentrated portion of its original source. It should be used in much smaller quantities than the whole substance. A good rule of thumb is that a drop will replace a teaspoon and that you don’t need more than one or two drops for a full recipe. Another thing is that the essential oil should still be diluted into a lipid first. This not only keeps us safe, but it helps to ensure the oil (and flavor!) gets dispersed throughout the whole dish. For savory recipes, dilute into a bit of olive or coconut oil. Stir, then add to the recipe. For sweet recipes, honey or a syrup works well.
