Bergamot Vitality essential oil

Bergamot Vitality

(Citrus bergamia)

Cold pressed from the rind, it’s the fresh bergamot fruit that gives Earl Grey tea its distinctive flavor. Bergamot Vitality™ essential oil has a fresh, complex citrus taste that makes it the perfect addition to many summer dishes. With a distinctly tart finish, it can also liven up sugarless baked goods. The taste of the Bergamot Vitality is somewhere between a sour orange and lemon, making it a distinctive, zesty addition to seafood recipes.

How to use: For internal use. To use as a dietary supplement, add to food, water or other beverages. Can also place a few drops in a vegetable capsule and take internally to support overall wellness.

  • Add 1–2 drops of Bergamot Vitality to a vegetarian gel capsule and take as a dietary supplement as needed.
  • Several times during grilling, brush seafood with olive oil infused with a few drops of Bergamot Vitality.
  • In baked goods recipes that call for citrus zest, add an unexpected twist by stirring in a drop of Bergamot Vitality for every teaspoon of zest.
  • Add 1–2 drops of Bergamot Vitality oil to Blue Agave natural sweetener and drizzle the mixture over muffins and tarts.

Cooking with essential oils

Cooking with essential oils

With Young Living’s introduction of it’s new Vitality line, a line that is specifically for  dietary use, it is the perfect time to talk about how to incorporate essential oils into your cooking and baking.

Please remember a few things:

  1. Essential oils are highly concentrated!  That means that it only takes a drop, and often less than a drop, to replace what is in your recipe.  Start small and taste test often.
  2. Know where your oils come from.   Not only does this mean that you want to use pure, unadulterated oils such as Young Living Essential Oils, but know the source of the oil as well.  Lemon essential oil, for instance, is cold pressed from the RIND of the lemon, not the juice.  If you use lemon oil in place of lemon juice you will not have that “tartness” that lemon juice provides.
  3. Certain spices will provide color as well as taste.  when making banana bread, I prefer to use the cinnamon spice to the oil just because of the color it adds.  I’ll use the nutmeg and ginger oils, though.
  4. When possible, add oils to your food near the end of cooking or just before serving to preserve the benefits of the oil.
  5. Be careful when cooking with children and be sure oils are out of their reach and capped tightly.

 

 

cooking tips

How your substitute essential oils in your recipes is largely a matter of taste.  Below you’ll find some general substitutions but it’s always smarter to start small and taste test often.   Taste testing is the best part of cooking anyway!!
