Cooking with Oils- Deconstructed stuffed pepper with rice

Have you ever been without ideas about what to cook for dinner?

That was my predicament the other night. I was looking at recipes and decided that I wanted to make lemongrass rice with a deconstructed stuffed pepper mix.


For the main dish,

  • I browned a pound of ground turkey with an onion.
  • Added salt, pepper, & garlic.
  • Then mixed in a can of diced tomatoes, chili seasoning, 2 drops each of vitality oils cumin, parsley, and black pepper.
  • Let simmer for 15-20 minutes

For the lemongrass rice:

  • I did not have any lemongrass, so I decided to use my vitality essential oil. I put two drops in a little bit of olive oil and drizzled that over the rice in the rice cooker.
  • Then I added my water, dash of sea salt, and cooked it.

Plated it and garnished with some Homemade pickled Peppers and carrots,

Bon appétit

It turned out so good! It was very fragrant.

I love experimenting and finding more and more uses for my vitality oils!

Why choose Young Living

Story Time!

About 20 years ago, I was in a store called Burlington Coat Factory and found a small bottle of patchouli essential oil.

I read great things about patchouli and was excited to find it! I checked the packaging and the label because I wanted to be sure I was getting pure essential oil. Back then, I did not know that companies had a lot of leeway when they use terminology such as “pure“, “natural”, and “therapeutic“.


I opened the bottle and YUCK … I thought I didn’t like patchouli!

Fast forward to today. I realize that I didn’t like the chemically laced synthetic scent they were trying to pass off as PURE.


I’m so grateful for Young Living’s commitment to purity and quality. They prove to me time and time again that I can trust their claims and labeling 🌿…..

If you want a high quality essential oil, Young Living is the best option available.

Ubiquitous Fragrance Ruins Everything

F R A G R A N C E.

Candles, sprays, plug ins, hand soaps, perfumes, cleaning supplies, etc. all have sweet scents, but none of it natural . Ughhhhh!!!!

– The word “fragrance” can hide any combination of 3000+ chemicals that companies engineer in the lab. Cosmetic manufacturers do not have to disclose smells since that is considered a trade secret. Even many of the so called “essential oils” were lab created. Yupp…they are all fake.

– The majority of candles contain paraffin, a petroleum waste product. They are a suspected cause of cancer, can cause respiratory distress.

– The toxins released from candles are as detrimental as second-hand smoke.

Now, I use Young Living essential oils in a diffuser. Since I started avoiding fragrance, I have noticed less sinus problems. I thought I was doomed to a life of congestion. Not anymore!
