In her words, why she uses essential oils in her cooking:ily background in healthy and tasty food for 4 generations. She was last with Maya Cafe, a health cafe in Central.
“I am from South of France and I grew up with my grand parents. My grandma use to make medicine out of herbs when I was sick so for me and it was normal and natural to use herbs in the kitchen (and food is medicine in our kitchen). One day I was travelling out of France and was not feeling well I went to a pharmacy and intuitively I put my hands on essential oils – lemon and thyme – I couldn’t find anything I knew, those were the only thing I could relate to.
Then after that I started experimenting with essential oils in food. To me it was quite natural, especially given being used to seeing pure essential oils in pharmacies back home.
When I tried using Young Living dietary essential oils I found that they are a lot more potent and authentic than what the “food grade” essential oils I was using before. They give an amazing dimension of flavour to my food and only a tiny amount is required. I found them very pure and powerful. I believe it’s very important to use only essential oils from reliable source especially if you are going to ingest them.”
