Quick Tip: Vitality oils conversion chart for recipes

Vitality Oils Conversion Tip

There are so many wonderful recipes out there where you can easily substitute your Young Living Vitality Oils for the same fresh or dried ingredient; try it in some of your own favorites. There isn’t a hard rule for how to do this. All of our tastes in strength in flavor are different. When in doubt try less. You can always add more if you like.

When you are cooking with Vitality essential oils, keep in mind that essential oils are volatile.  This means that the oil molecules want to escape into the air; they will dissipate.  When you add heat to the equation, it makes them escape more quickly.  With certain protein-based dishes like chicken, I find that I get more flavor when I add the Vitality oils to the dishes when they are finished.  When I have something that I have to refrigerate, such as a fruit salad,  I’ll add the oil just before serving.  Experiment – see what works for you.

Here is a chart to help you with Vitality oil conversion.  Again, it is a guideline – flavor to your liking.

  • 1 Citrus Fruit, juiced = 10 to 15 Drops of a Vitality oil
  • 1 Tablespoon Herbs or Spices = 1 Drop or less of a Vitality oil.
  • 1 Teaspoon Herbs or Spices = Dip a toothpick in the Vitality oil. Swirl the toothpick through the wet ingredients and mix.
