    I have a request please. I’m intrigued by the thought of making vitality infused olive oils, but do not have any experience. would one of you have any recommendations on olive oil to vitality oil ratios?
    thank you in advance.

  • Diane Rimington

    I would love to make some Vitality-Infused Olive Oil for Christmas presents this year. Does anyone have some olive oil to essential oil ratio recommendations?

    • Judy Bruce

      I’m also interested in knowing the ratio of essential oil to olive oil ratio, would appreciate knowing what others know?

    I have a question – my smoothie maker is a nutribullet so it has the plastic containers… I’m guessing that using lemon vitality oil in my smoothies is not a good idea. Any thoughts? Otherwise I love the idea. Any reason not to use lime vitality?

    • Young Living

      Hi Elizabeth, Great question. If a low amount of the Lemon or Lime Vitality are mixed into the smoothie after it is blended and consumed within a short period of time, we do not see any negative effects occurring. If you have further concerns with using essential oils with your nutribullet, we recommend transferring the smoothie blend into a glass cup and then adding the oils. Thanks for stopping by!

  • Laura

    These are helpful, thanks! Anyone ordered and tried recipes from either of the Cookbooks from the catalogue?

    • Melissa

      Yes! I have the 2nd volume and it’s great! 🙂

  • These are great ideas…will definitely try infusing olive oils – delicious. Hmnnnn! 🙂

    I have used basil vitality, oregano vitality and thyme vitality in marinades with olive oil, garlic, salt and pepper, especially for sprouted, grilled tofu. Just one drop each was plenty. Mostly though I like the citrus vitality oils added to water or NingXia Red.
