You know from my last post that I didn’t like Turmeric at first.
Have you ever felt that way about an essential oil? It may be that you just don’t like it, or it might be that you also have an emotional connection to it too.
After experimenting with using turmeric as a spicy base note in pure-fumes, I decided I will experiment with diffusing it.

I have to admit when dōTERRA released the turmeric essential oil at the 2018 Global Convention I was super excited to start using it for it’s internal benefits for anti-inflammatory and anti-rheumatic purposes.
Then, when I got it I was slightly repulsed by the smell! However, it’s since grown on me, and I now like the spicy base note depth it adds to blends. Continue reading Turmeric Rollerball Blends
I find it incredibly fustrating that alot of the dairy free products on the market also contain corn products, or they have a ‘may contain dairy’ statement on them, so I still can’t tolerate them.
I can however get my hands on 2 different types of coconut based cheese which is not only gluten free and dairy free but also corn free with no may contain statements.

I am truly blessed to have meet so many wonderful people on my journey creating our Essential Olie Tree.
Nat is one these people.
She is a gorgeous woman that shared with me her favourite diffuser blend. I’ve been busting to share it with you all, as I know some of you will resonate with it.
I’ve called this blend “Strength”. I feel that intuitively Nat picked these 3 essential oils for their emotional support benefits.

I love the dōTERRA yoga collection of essential oils, especially Ascend (aka Arise).
The only downside with loving a blend is that I go through it far too quickly.

Do you cry when cutting onions?

I’ve been making this extra citrus version for a while now, but really love to make my recipes quite a few times before I officially share and release them.
You will see from the different flavours of crinkle cookies that I love making them. Mainly because they taste amazing and because they are gluten, dairy and corn free. They are also quick and easy to make up if your having last minute guests, or people pop in. I call them my slap happy macarons.

The first time I smelt litsea, I was taken back to my childhood to the smell of summer and ice poles. I love the lemongrass, citrus, lemon balm smell! Although it has the citrus undertone, it’s actually a herb and one of the only herbs I haven’t experimented with in the kitchen. Continue reading Litsea Rollerball Blends
I have been making this fruit loaf for many years. I created it as an alternative to gluten free bread to have for breakfast, lunch or just as a sweet snack/treat.
It’s easy to adapt to make it taste slightly different each time as it depends on what dried fruit I have in my pantry or what I can get at the supermarkets. I mainly use cranberries, but sometimes when I see a dried mixed berry blend called ‘anti-oxidant blend’ I put that in it. I usually don’t make a special trip to the supermarket, so if I’ve only got currants or sultanas I use them in place of the cranberries.
