Healthy Holiday Drink Ideas for Entertaining with Essential Oils
Set up a beverage bar with sparkling water and essential oils to make your own healthy soda. I like to use, lemon, lime, spearmint, peppermint, grapefruit, tangerine, ginger and orange essential oils.
For hot drinks, you can set out cinnamon bark, clove, and nutmeg to add holiday spices to tea and coffee.
You can make a batch of this Pumpkin Spiced Creamer to add to coffee.
Healthy Holiday Appetizer for Entertaining with Essential Oils
This spiced dip is not only healthy but yummy as a dip for apple slices.
Healthy Holiday Desserts for Entertaining with Essential Oils
All of the following desserts are gluten-free. I started cooking gluten-free for my daughter who is gluten intolerant. I realized I can make almost everything gluten-free and it is just as good so instead of making two batches of everything, I just make everything gluten-free. When I need to bring a dessert to church or a gathering, I always bring a gluten-free dessert and I am amazed to find out how many people are gluten intolerant. The huge smile on their faces when they realize there is something that they can enjoy is such a joy for me to see.

A Final Note About Ingesting Essential Oils
Make sure you use therapeutic grade essential oils that are safe for ingesting. Young Living offers a Vitality line of essential oils that are approved for ingesting just to make it clear which oils are safe for this purpose. If you are experimenting with oils in recipes make sure you do your research to make sure you are using oils that are safe for consumption.
Therapeutic Grade Essential Oils not only enhance the flavor of food, they add many health benefits much like adding superpower vitamins to your food, only these are completely natural.
