Cooking with Young Living

Are you ready to add a whole new element of flavor and fun to your cooking and baking?

Essential oils are where its at! So many people know and use essential oils for emotional support, health support, to make their living space more inviting and to help with sleep… but if you haven’t used essential oils in your kitchen, you have been missing out!

Young Living has a whole line of ‘food flavoring’ essential oils. What is a food flavoring essential oil? I’m so glad you asked. In Young Living, it is the exact same pure, seed-seal, essential you know and love… just re-bottled to adhere to the labeling restrictions set out but by Health Canada.

These are the oils that are approved in Canada to be labeled as food flavoring:

  • Basil+
  • Black Pepper+
  • Lemon+
  • Lime+
  • Orange+
  • Oregano+
  • Spearmint+

And so many more that will be added soon (approval and re-labeling takes time).

Recipes using PLUS line Essential Oils

Orange Raspberry Pancakes


Pancakes are a Sunday morning tradition in our house. We love playing with the delicious classic recipe by adding chocolate chips, blueberries, bananas, raspberries, coconut, and now the magic of Essential Oils! 

I love these Orange pancakes, but you can also use Lemon if that’s what your taste-buds are ready for! 

I only use Young Living Essential Oils because I know they are 100% pure oil. Many brands out there are not good safe, or safe in general because the use filler oils and chemicals in their oils. To get your young living oils please message me!
