Creating A Summer Oasis: Essential Oils for Outdoor Entertaining

The slip and slide is up and ready for action, the hammock has been hung, and the grill is sizzling. Summer has arrived! Along with summer comes the fun of having friends and family over to enjoy the warm weather and the time spent together outdoors. If you want to enhance your outdoor experience and take it to the next level, it’s time to incorporate essential oils for entertaining into your outdoor celebrations.


Essential Oils for Setting the Summer Mood

When you think about setting a mood for entertaining, whether outdoors or indoors, there are many things to consider when creating a desired atmosphere and ambiance. Essential oils for summer are a fabulous way to set a summer mood.


When it comes to mood setting, Madagascar Vanilla oil is an incredibly versatile choice. It can be used in a variety of ways, whether it’s by diffusing the oil to fill your home or outdoor space with the feeling and scent of an inviting and warm atmosphere, using it as a personal fragrance, or even adding it to recipes for a memorable and unique flavor. Adding a drop of Madagascar Vanilla oil to your smoothie, coffee, or tea will add a captivating and smooth flavor to your beverage of choice.


Elevating Summer Recipes

Essential oils for cooking are incredibly effective in the kitchen and are known for their ability to elevate recipes, especially during summer. Essential oils can add an incredible flavor to any meal, but they also offer internal health benefits and give you a natural way to incorporate flavor into your food when a particular fresh ingredient is unavailable.*


Always a popular seasoning, Oregano essential oil has many benefits, including supporting healthy respiratory function and promoting healthy digestion when consumed internally.* This popular spice adds incredible flavor and depth to not only marinades but also salads and grilled dishes. Add one drop of Oregano essential oil to be used in place of dried oregano on pizza sauce, roasts, or spaghetti sauce.


Highlight your summer meals further by adding the distinctive taste of Pink Pepper essential oil to your recipes. Distilled from the fruit of a pink peppercorn tree, this spicy, fruity, and woody oil was once used as a herbal solution to health needs. When taken internally, Pink Pepper essential oil is known for supporting both a healthy metabolism and immune system.* Use it this summer to add a touch of spice to your salad dressings, marinades, and more.
