I have a confession… I am not a fan of cooking in my everyday life!! But, there is something so fun and exciting about cooking for Thanksgiving dinner! Over the years, we have perfected some great family Thanksgiving recipes and we’d love to share them with you to give you ideas for the upcoming holiday!!
We love adding doTERRA oils to our meals for added health benefits and delicious, natural flavoring! Quick Reminder: We only use doTERRA oils because of their tested and trusted purity!
What oils are good for fall cooking?
Our favorite doTERRA oils that we use in the Fall for baking and cooking are: Wild Orange, Rosemary, Ginger, Cinnamon, Oregano, Thyme, and now - Vanilla! The below guide shows a variety of ways to use these oils:
Check out how we use these oils below! Sharing 5 Easy Thanksgiving Recipes - straight from our kitchen!

Salt & Pepper
Directions: Start with a raw defrosted turkey. Rub with butter. Season with Salt, Pepper, 3 drops Thyme, 3 drops Rosemary (Will cook off some as roasting). We use 2 sticks of butter. You can adjust as needed -- if it's dry, we will add more butter during the day basting.
Wild Orange Cranberry Sauce
1 bag fresh cranberries

Directions: In a saucepan, combine the cranberries, maple syrup or honey, and orange juice. Bring to a boil until the cranberries have broken down and thickened, about 20 minutes. Add essential oils right after pulling off the heat. As it's cooling, the sauce will continue to thicken.
