gluten free recipes with essential oils

Have you ever tried cooking with essential oils? I had never heard of it until a few years ago yet people have been using essential oils in cooking just like you would with herbs for years. Here are ten simple healthy and delicious gluten free recipes with essential oils.

1. Blackened Salmon with Mango Salsa This is a yummy and delicious dish for the summer or fall or whenever you can find some salmon and mangos on sale. I think it would go great with some broccoli and rice or potatoes.

2. Quinoa Salad . I love quinoa salads and this is another great option. If you can’t have cheese, you could add in some avocado or Bragg’s Nutritional Yeast 4.5oz 2 Pack for extra flavor.

3. Carrot and Ginger Rice with Mint While I personally really love carrots and ginger, it had never occurred to me to cook them together with mint. I still haven’t tried this yet but look forward to giving these gluten free recipe with essential oils a try.

4. Coconut and Lemongrass Red Lentil Soup . I love lentil soups and coconut so this recipe offers a combination of two of my favorite flavors. This recipe reminds me of many Indian or Thai dishes.

5. Glazed Spicy Sweet Potatoes . I love sweet potatoes but they can be bitter tasting. This gluten free with essential oils recipe offers sweet potatoes with a nice twist.

6. Ginger Shrimp and Mango Skewers If you like shrimp and mango, this makes for a great recipe for a summer barbecue.

7. Costa Rican Black Bean Soup If you like black beans, then you will love this recipe. I really like black beans and I have made a similar soup many times without the essential oils. Using the oregano and thyme essential oils adds a nice flavor. Be careful though. Both of these essential oils are very hot. I recommend using a tooth pick to make sure you don’t put in too much.

8. Zucchini Tomato Basil Salad This is a nice refreshing summer salad and a great way to use up any extra basil and tomatoes from your garden.

9. Rosemary Mashed Potatoes. I love potatoes and I love the flavor or rosemary so this is a no brainer. You can also use coconut or almond milk with some olive oil or ghee if you can’t have dairy milk products. This recipe would be really yummy with the blacked salmon and mango salsa from recipe number 1.

10. Sweet Potato Fries with Avocado Lime Dip I love sweet potato fries and avocado so this is a must on my list of delicious gluten free recipes with essential oils. It may be last, but it certainly isn’t least.

Have you ever considered how to use essential oils for emotional wellness for autism? If not, you are not alone. This is not something that many people are even aware is possible. Yet emotional wellness with essential oils is not only possible but is one of the best ways to use essential oils. What happens in your brain when you smell your favorite cookies? What about the smells of fall? What about the smell of your favorite perfume? Something happens in your brain that creates a certain mood or feeling. The same thing happens with essential oils only they are much more powerful than many other smells. Have you ever tried cutting open an orange and smelling it? What about the smell of lemon in a clean kitchen? These smells have a tendency to make us feel happy and uplifted. Essential oils work in the same way. If you are feeling a bit gloomy, or sad, then there are essential oils that can help. People with autism often struggle with their emotional wellness more than those who are not on the autism spectrum. Emotional wellness with essential oils can help to provide a natural and healthy solution instead of turning to chemicals. To get a better idea of how essential oils can help with emotional wellness, watch the following video.

One of the main things that essential oils can help with is to help reduce meltdowns and temper tantrums. As any parent of a child with autism knows, these are one of if not the biggest problems that parents experience. It can also be difficult for people on the autism spectrum of manage and control their emotions. Personally before I used essential oils, I used to struggle with temporary bursts of crying over silly and petty things or I would get moody without any real reason. Using essential oils for my emotional wellness has mostly eliminated this problem. While there are lots of ways to control emotions, smells are one of the most powerful and essential oils have strong and powerful smells.
