It is important to remember to use essential oils in very small doses. Indeed, one or two drops are enough to flavour a dish.
In addition, in order not to spoil the preparation, you should avoid:
- Heat essential oils: a high temperature changes their composition;
- Mix two or three identical essential oils at a time under penalty of a bad result;
- Dilute the essential oil in water. Always remember, oil and water don’t mix
Each essential oil has its own properties and health benefits.
