When you're cooking and baking, essential oils are an easy and cost-effective way to spice up a dish. Essential oils are the MOST POTENT form of an herb. For example, one drop of Peppermint Vitality is equivalent to 26 cups of peppermint tea. That means a little goes a LONG way.
Here are four popular oils from the vitality line to keep in your kitchen to make flavorful dishes.

Cloves are used in Asian, Mexican, and European cooking and generally accompany other spices like cinnamon and cardamom. Be cautious when using cloves, as they have a very strong flavor. This oil supports your cardiovascular, digestive, immune, and respiratory systems.
Used in a lot of Greek and Italian cooking, oregano is most often paired with tomatoes, but it also goes well with other vegetables as well as with meat and fish. It supports your immune and respiratory systems, muscles, and bones.

TIPS WHEN COOKING WITH OILS: If you need less than one drop of essential oil (EO), you can either put some EO on a toothpick and stir it in to taste, or mix a drop of EO with another ingredient like olive oil and only use a portion of the mixture.
