At a Christmas Gift DIY make & take in 2015 one of the gifts we made was a seasoned salt. I made a basil vitality and a rosemary–lemon vitality salt and didn’t think much of it, because it was SO easy. But then I started cooking with it… I love it SO much I use salt seasoned with essential oils about 1/2 the time now. It adds AMAZING, yet subtle flavors. I actually don’t think I can live without it…
How to DIY gift worthy Seasoned Sea Salt with YLEO:
These are seriously complicated instructions, so brace yourself. Ready?
Mix 6-8 drops Young Living Essential Oil in 4 ounces Himalayan pink salt and seal in a 4 oz. glass jar. 🙂 Ehrrrmegerd, it tastes so MUCH fancier!
(Pssst – If you’re not already up on why Himalayan sea salt is making waves, check this out: Salt of the Earth)
In this Creamy Potato Soup with Kale Poish Sausage and YL Rosemary Vitality EO, I used the rosemary-lemon salt…. and OMG YUM! What a hearty soup!
Awww man… Now I’m salivating!
Did you know?
To me, one of THE most surprising facts about Young Living Essential Oils in general was that they never go bad. They have no expiration date! That’s so awesome, right? Other companies aren’t going to be able to offer you that because they add carrier oils to water down their already sub-par oils, sooooo…. considering that each 5 ml bottle contains about 75 drops of precious, pure Young Living Essential Oil, $7-$12 a bottle is a FREAKING BARGAIN! Don’t try to go ‘cheap’ on this. Plus, a little goes so far. 🙂 Get the good stuff!
Some ideas for flavors to make your own Gift Worthy Seasoned Sea Salt with Young Living Vitality Oils are are dill, black pepper, or celery salt.
