Avocados are high in essential fats and low in saturated fat. Essential fats actually help to speed up the metabolism.

I have just added the Essential Oil of Basil to our list of oils in our product line at the Twilight Therapy Store. A few of us have been using the oil to add flavor to our cooking oils and  have found it to be easy to work with as well as satisfying our tastes buds. 

 

Basil oil can be added to Olive Oil, SesesmeGrapeseed, Peanut, or coconut  oils and used to saute vegetables and/or other aromatic spices together.

  • TBLS Olive Oil
  • 1 Drop of Basil

Remember that the EO ( essential oil) is much stronger than the herb so the flavor will be powerful in minute amounts.

This is such a great recipe for a nice spring snack. When I first introduced this recipe, I was hosting a tea blending class. Now as a mom it’s a great snack to make with my son. Getting to teach him the importance of healthy food choices and safety with the oils is a wonderful bonding time for us. He is a great kitchen helper. Wouldn’t you love to try this recipe too with your own lil' kitchen helpers! Thanks for allowing me to be a guest blogger. Looking forward to being apart of this great team and sharing my gifts!
