Use these recipes to whip up your own and feel good knowing exactly what’s in them, plus enjoy incredible essential oil flavor. The best part? These homemade salad dressings will be ready in less time than it takes to heat up that frozen burrito.

    How long will they stay fresh in the refrigerator?

    • Hey Kaye! The dressings will start separating immediately, so we suggest making it the same day you plan on using it. Also, the recipe doesn’t make a ton of dressing at once, so using it all up and not having to store it will hopefully not be a problem. Thanks for stopping by and hope this helps!

    question – the bottle say ‘ not for internal use’ but these are saying okay to put in food… i’m confused

    • Young Living

      Hello Charlotte, For this recipe, we recommend using our new Vitality line of essential oils which are labeled for dietary use. The Grapefruit, Lemon, Lime and Orange Vitality essential oils are available for purchase in the Virtual Office for the US market. Thanks for stopping by with your question!

  • Laurie

    Can you use the non-vitality Young Living oils in these recipes? When will this line become available in Canada?

    • Young Living

      Hi Laurie, With the same constituents and purity, our Vitality line is labeled for dietary use, while the topical/aromatic line is labeled for topical and aromatic uses. We recommend following the usage directions on each individual product label. We are working to get each of the Vitality essential oils available for purchase in Canada. We apologize, at this time we do not have an estimated date of availability. Thanks for stopping by with your question!
