Holiday Wassail with dōTERRA Essential Oils
Serves 4
2 cups apple juice
1 cup cranberry juice
3 drops wild orange essential oil
1 drop lemon essential oil
2 toothpicks of clove essential oil
2 toothpicks of cinnamon essential oil
1 toothpick ginger essential oil

Add apple juice, cranberry juice, wild orange essential oil, and lemon essential oil to pan and heat on stove bring to boil. When it begins boiling, take your toothpick and press down into the essential oils listed above, then swirl in the ingredients already contained in the pan. Once finished pour into your favorite mug and enjoy!

I used 8 cups apple juice and 4 cups cranberry juice.
I added full drops, not toothpicks … 2 drops cinnamon and 2 cloves plus 1 drop ginger.
And I could always have made a bigger batch.

Italian Bread Dip with Essential Oils
What You Need:
¼ cup olive oil
1-3 tablespoons balsamic vinegar to taste
½ teaspoon Italian seasoning*
1 tablespoon Parmesan cheese (optional)
1-3 drops dōTERRA Oregano essential oil (starts with a toothpick and progress toward drops for the desired flavor)

1. Gently mix all ingredients in a bowl large enough to dip into.
2. Dip favorite Italian style bread into a bowl and enjoy.

*I too made this for class and forgot to bring along the Italian Seasoning ... I improvised and made it as follows: ¼ cup olive oil + 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar to taste + 1 drop dōTERRA Basil Essential Oil + 1 drop dōTERRA Thyme Essential Oil + 1 drop dōTERRA Rosemary Essential Oil + 1 drop dōTERRA Oregano essential oil + parmesan-romano finely shredded cheese blend

Black Bean and Corn Salsa
1 can of Black Beans; rinsed and drained (I used a 1 pound 13oz can)
1 bag frozen corn kernels (I used a 12oz bag, plus a little more from another)
1 can of Rotel Tomatoes w/Green Chilies (I used 1 small can and drained most of the juice before adding it to bowl, reserve juice just in case you need more)
½ large red onion
1 drop dōTERRA Cilantro Essential Oil
2 drops dōTERRA Lime Essential Oil
1 toothpick of dōTERRA Black Pepper Oil (Or fresh ground pepper to taste)
Salt to taste

Mix all ingredients in one bowl. Refrigerate.
Served with Tostitos or Frito Scoops

Chocolate Peppermint Bark with or without Almonds
1 bag of chocolate, melted (or large block of Almond Bark)
Almonds halved or slivered, or any add-in of your choice (nuts, dates, dried fruit, etc.)
1 – 6 drops dōTERRA Peppermint Essential Oil (per taste preference or any dōTERRA oil like Wild Orange)

Melt chocolate, stir in additional items. Then stir in the essential oil, starting with 1 drop. Taste after adding each additional drop. * Less is More *
Pour mixture on a lined cookie sheet and place in fridge or freezer to cool
Break into pieces and serve.

Apple with OnGuard
Apples - cored and sliced, peeled if you desired. (Any apple works, but gala has tested to brown the least and holds their crunch longer)
dōTERRA OnGuard Essential Oil

Cut apples and add to a bowl of ice water
Add 1 drop OG essential oil/apple used to the bowl of water (3 apples = 3 drops)
Stir to coat. Let sit. Taste Test.
Add more oil based on your taste preference. Then EAT!
