Cooking with essential oils For centuries, essential oils have been used to add flavor to meals because of their potent nature and ability to enhance natural flavors. When cooking with essential oils, remember, a little goes a long way. Because essential oils are so concentrated, even the tiniest drop can provide a serious amount of flavor. When cooking with essential oils, rather than adding an entire drop to your dish, dip a toothpick into the bottle to extract flavor and stir the dipped toothpick in with the other ingredients. You can always add more flavor, but adding too much essential oil could overpower and even ruin the dish. It may take some experimentation, but as you start to use essential oils to flavor and enhance your food, you will soon experience the benefits that these natural extracts have to offer, and enjoy your favorite recipes even more.
