    Can DoTerra theraputic grade Lavendar essential oils be used instead of the dried lavendar? Just learning about eo’s and want to incorporate them in my cooking as well instead of dried herbs when possible.

      If you use essential oils in cooking it’s important to make sure it’s FOOD GRADE essential oils which would be safe for ingesting. Keep in mind that essential oils are very potent, so it is recommended to start out with a very small quantity to try as a replacement for dried culinary lavender in the recipe. Start with 1/2 to 1 drop in the first batch you make.
