I have some yummy recipes using essential oils in the works to post (tonight I made gluten-free pumpkin brownies with clove and cinnamon!) so be sure to come back regularly (or just follow me on Pinterest or Facebook) to see when I post a new essential oils recipe!
This applesauce recipe below is absolutely amazing. The lemon helps to keep it from turning brown, and the drop of cinnamon adds such a nice flavor!
- Peel and core your apples (this handy tool here makes it super easy!)
- Chop the apples into about 8 large chunks per apple
- Combine all ingredients in a large pow and bring to a low simmer.
- Cover the pot and cook for 30 minutes
- Let cool, then mash with a potato masher or puree with an immersion blender
Plus, lemon and cinnamon are great for all kinds of other things too!
Cinnamon is thought to promote healthy cardiovascular and immune function!

- Lemon is incompatible with most plastics and all styrofoam containers, so if you decide to add lemon essential oil to a drink, ALWAYS use a GLASS or STAINLESS-STEEL container.
- Lemon BLENDS well with other citrus oils as well as Rosemary, Basil, and Ginger. When you use stronger essential oils in cooking (like Basil and Ginger), don’t even use a full drop. Just stick a toothpick into the bottle of oil and use that amount instead.
