Young Living Essential Oils are food grade and can be used to flavor foods and can be used as a supplement. Most essential oils cannot be ingested so please do not make peppermint ice cubes with any brand of essential oil, know your source!
I find that using my YL oils in cooking helps me in creating the most natural and healthful dishes. Here is yet another way you can get all of the benefits of the peppermint plant and have a cool flavored treat for yourself or guests during holidays and special occasions.
Peppermint Ice Cubes
Fill up ice cube tray, dip a toothpick into your bottle of peppermint, then swirl the toothpick in the ice cube tray.
This is known as the “toothpick method” and it is applied when a full drop of a YL essential oil would flavor the food or beverage too much. Consider this: one drop of peppermint essential oil is the equivalent of 28 cups of peppermint tea, extremely potent stuff!
As the ice cube melts in your beverage it gently infuses into your drink.
Peppermint flavored ice cubes are cooling and refreshing in summertime drinks too!
Other YL Essential Oils for Flavored Ice Cubes:
Orange, Lemon, Tangerine, Citrus Fresh, or Lavender.
