Essential Oils & Cooking - -Part 1
Many have asked me to share some recipes, so here you go - the first of a series! I use Josiah's Lemon Essential Oil in my Lemon Chicken recipe - it is simple and a big hit.
Add 2 Tbs coconut oil to cast iron skillet; add 1 tsp pure butter; warm until melted on low; add 2 drops EO - keep on low and stir until combined; add 1 lb chicken breast and salt to taste. I cook this recipe slow and low until the chicken in cooked through and garnish the serving plate with lemon wedges. You can substitute Josiah's Orange Oil for orange chicken too! Serve over rice (you can heat the pre-cooked rice though in butter or coconut oil with a drop of lemon oil as well for lemon rice!)

Detox the air in your Home!
Due to indoor and outdoor pollution we all have considerably reduced negative ions in our homes, schools, and offices. (Negative ions are the good ones; sounds counter-intuitive, but it is true!) Simply adding negative ions to be added to the air improves air quality. Why are positive ions damaging? Positive ions result from pollutants including heating systems, air conditioners, smoke particles, electro-magnetic fields called EMFs (computers, cells phones, wireless internet...).
Positive ions are known to make us feel tired, irritable, depressed, and even anxious. They are also thought to increase your chances of illness due to a weakened immune system. This is because overload of positive ions attacking our system creates free radicals in the body.
An essential oil diffuser (especially an atomizing diffuser) will break down a essential oil into a very fine mist which travels through the air filling the atmosphere with negative ions. They also will neutralizing , bacteria, viruses, and fungus (Germ Fighting Blend works well for this), improving the air quality of your home. It will also clean the air of odor - not cover it with synthetic chemicals. The benefits continue as inhaled oils can help with congestion, and will increase mood. The molecular size of the oils allow them to travel directly to the brain. They can help with depression, focus, memory and more!
