Lemon Essential Oil in the Kitchen - Great Recipe Ideas!

Jun 5, 2008
For homemade lemonade, in a blender mix the juice of 2 squeezed lemons, 2 drops of Lemon essential oil, 2 tablespoons of honey or blue agave and two cups of pure water. Adjust the amount of each ingredient to suit your own taste.

Add a couple of drops of Lemon essential oil to sparkling mineral water for a great lemon essence flavor you could add Lemon essential oil to ANY kind of juice.

You can mix Lemon essential oil into yogurt or ice cream, or lemon meringue pie...any desert that lemon would taste good in.

For a spinach fettuccini alfredo take fresh spinach, add garlic, some cream cheese, parmesan cheese and spices, cook it up and then right before serving add some olive oil to the pasta, put a drop of Lemon essential oil on a wooden spoon and stir it into the spinach alfredo sauce and then toss all the ingredients with the pasta -delicious!

Add a few drops to your salad dressing or infuse your olive oil with the Lemon essential oil and use it for dipping.

Create your own pesto with 1/2 cup raw pine nuts, 1/2 cup raw pumpkin seeds, a small bouquet of fresh organic basil leaves, a clove of garlic mashed in a mortar and pestle with a little sea salt or Himalayan pink salt into a little paste (that takes the stinging bite out of the garlic).

Blend all the ingredients in a food processor with some olive or Udo's oil and add a couple of drops of Lemon essential oil for a really delicious and healthy pesto.

Just have fun...no rules here...just experiment on what you think will taste good!

To clean and increase the shelf life of fresh fruit, fill a bowl with cool water and 2-3 drops of Lemon essential oil. Drop your cleaned fruit into the water and stir. Be sure all surfaces of the fruit contact the lemon water
