Every good meal starts with a tasty starter, so let's begin with some appetizer recipes.

 

Appetizers give your guests teaser bites of delicious flavors while they mingle and wait for the main course!

 

Put all those garden grown and farmers' market veggies to great use with these recipes!

 

#1 Lemon- Lime Guacamole

 

2  ripe avocados, seeded and mashed with a fork

1-2 T red onion, finely chopped

2 cloves garlic, crushed/minced

1/2 to 1 drop Lemon Vitality Essential Oil

1/2 to 1 drop Lime Vitality Essential Oil

1 small Roma tomato, diced

1 t fresh cilantro leaves, finely chopped

Salt to taste

 

Directions: Add avocado to a small mixing bowl. Mix into the avocado the red onion, crushed garlic, diced tomatoes, chopped cilantro, and salt to taste. Add a little of the lemon and/or lime essential oil (use the dilution tip we gave you) and taste; add more to taste.

Onion trick: To remove some of the bite of the red onion, soak the chopped onion in warm water for five minutes and then remove from the water. 

 

Serve with tortilla chips.


Next up we have: Super Easy Blender Salsa

Combine the following in a blender:

¼ of a 28 oz can of organic diced tomatoes

Blend/pulse until onion is in small pieces, add the rest of the can of tomatoes, pulse a few more times, and you’re ready to go!

No kids? What would you typically serve for kids at your summer social? :)




Grill Marinades

 

Store-bought marinades have a shelf life, which means the ingredients lose freshness every day they sit there, and at the same time, the flavors lose their intensity.

The secret to mastering marinades is in knowing the effect of various marinating durations.

Marinating for two hours or less will impart a surface flavor.

For a fully infused flavor, marinade for 8-24 hours.

NOTE: The thicker the meat, the longer it takes to absorb the flavor.

 

Here are a couple of my favorite marinade recipes. They’re full of flavor AND free of any preservatives.



 

Is anybody here a taco fan? Check out this killer Chicken Marinade!

Juice of 2 limes

1⁄2 teaspoon red pepper flakes

1 teaspoon kosher salt

2 drops Black Pepper Vitality Essential Oil

*2 drops Lime Vitality Essential Oil

 

Mix the above ingredients together. Allow chicken to marinate for 2-6 hours.

*Avoid plastic when using citrus essential oils.

2 oz Witch Hazel

2 oz distilled water

20 drops Thieves Essential Oil

20 drops Lemon Essential Oil

Soothing Stick

If you forget to apply your outdoor spray, don’t worry. I have your back. This is perfect for kids!

 

DIY Soothing Stick

5 drops Lavender Essential Oil

5 drops *Purification Essential Oil

3 drops *Peppermint Essential Oil



*Leave the Peppermint and Purification out of this recipe if using on children 2 years old or younger.

Combine these magical essential oils in a 10 ml roller and fill the rest with V6 complex oil or your favorite carrier oil. Apply this soothing stick roll-on to any areas you need and as often as you need it.



Floating Citronella candle

Spruce up your summer social with this beautiful DIY citronella candle. It is not only EASY but it will change the look of any table AND it actually WORKS!  


Did you know that many of those store-bought citronella candles don't actually contain citronella oil? Instead, the candles are often just citronella ‘scented.’ BIG difference.  

 

Supplies

  • Glass bowl or container
  • Decorations of your choice. You can use anything! (Lemon peels, orange peels, cinnamon sticks, lavender, rosemary, flower petals, river rocks, etc.)
  • 20 drops Citronella Essential Oil
  • 10 drops Lemongrass Essential Oil
  • 1 T Witch Hazel
  • Water to top off glass bowl or container
  • 1 unscented floating candle

Instructions

  1. Gather decorations and arrange in a bowl. I recommend cutting them into two-inch pieces so they don’t bunch at the top of the bowl or cause it to overturn.                                       
  2. Add Witch Hazel, Citronella, and Lemongrass Essential Oil to the bowl.
  3. Fill in the remaining bowl space with water.
  4. After placing your bowl outside, top it off with the floating candle and light it to create a cozy, aromatic ambiance you and your guests can enjoy throughout the evening.

Fun fact about Citronella Essential Oil! There are quite a few recipes out there to create your own aluminum-free deodorant with citronella. (We will save those for another class.) Meanwhile, did you know that the aluminum in deodorants has been linked to health problems, including the neurological damage associated with Alzheimer’s disease, and conditions like anemia, Lou Gehrig’s disease, glucose intolerance, memory problems, and Parkinson’s disease? GROSS!


 Playtime Balm

Ok this DIY is a little more complicated but definitely worth it! I promise. This will have you ready for all those mishaps that summer can bring.

 

Playtime Balm 

Ingredients

¼ cup coconut oil

¼ cup olive oil

1 T beeswax

10 drops Lavender Essential Oil

10 drops Frankincense Essential Oil

5 drops Myrrh or Helichrysum Essential Oil

1 drop Peppermint Essential Oil

5 drops Tea Tree Essential Oil



Directions

Melt all ingredients except the oils in a double boiler. When cooled, add essential oils and pour into glass jars or lip balm tubes. Allow to harden.

Apply to knees, elbows, and any other place that might need a little extra love.
