Cooking is so much fun with Essential Oils. And Thanksgiving is the perfect time to show off some oils and make your turkey the centerpiece of an incredible meal! Stuffed and basted with fresh herbs and essential oils, this turkey will not only be extremely flavorful and aromatic, but will also be the highlight of your Thanksgiving feast. *NOTE only Young Living oils are used for dietary purposes.
1 (13-pound) turkey1 onion, peeled and quartered
Divide These Ingredients in Half:
2 sprigs Rosemary
2 drops Rosemary essential oil
3 sprigs fresh Thyme
1 drop Thyme essential oil
2 cloves garlic, slivered
1/4 cup apple cider concentrate
2 drops Orange essential oil
1 drop Lemon essential oil
2 tsp. olive oil
1 toothpick dip of Thyme essential oil
1/4 tsp. salt
Freshly ground black pepper
Remove giblets from turkey. Place turkey on a rack and stuff with the onion and half of the rosemary, thyme, and garlic mixture. Loosen the skin from the turkey breast and place the remaining half of the mixture under the skin.
To prepare the baste, stir together the cider concentrate, orange essential oil, lemon essential oil, olive oil, thyme essential oil, salt, and pepper.
Roast the turkey in a preheated 325-degree oven, basting every 30 minutes with the cider baste until an internal temperature reaches at least 165 degrees in the innermost part of the thigh, the wing, and the thickest part of the breast. (Some diners may want the turkey cooked to a higher temperature.)
Carve and enjoy!
