Yummo! And yes, the secret special ingredient is the Orange essential oil! You could use any of the Young Living citrus oils like lemon, lime, citrus fresh, tangerine, etc. You can’t go wrong. I wrote about 10 uses for Orange oil in this post too if you’d like to check it out.

I am participating in an amazing summer series called Essentially Summer, hosted by Myra at My Blessed Life, which showcases 35 delicious recipes all the way from drinks to main dishes, and of course using Young Living Essential Oils.

Why are we doing this? Because essential oils are SO versatile and can be used to cook with, to flavor your water, and to make mouth watering recipes. All of that in addition to the superior medicinal benefits the essential oils already have, which I’ve talked about numerous times here on the blog. Now with this series, I want to show you all the many different ways you can use your oils!

Here is the non-alcholic version my mom helped me make as well.

That is a great option if you do not drink alcohol, and even a fun version for kiddos to drink if you are having a party. Just be sure not to mix the 2 up!
