i’ve been away from home for the past three days, staying at a huge log cabin up in the mountains with about 90 other people-hence the enormous container full of lemonade. inspired by the adventureclubinteractive culinary adventure assignment, i decided to document “the doctoring of the lemonade”!
don’t let the horrified look on this man’s face fool you, it was actually his idea to put drops of wild orange essential oil in the lemonade, and it was completely and totally delicious! considering the massive quantity of lemonade, we added about 15-20 drops of essential oil. for smaller quantities i’m sure around 5 drops would be plenty.
wild orange is a perfect match for our childhood favorite, lemonade, because wild orange helps us to reconnect to our inner child and bring play back into life. wild orange is a very powerful mood and energy enhancer and also helps with digestion. it smells like happiness and tastes divine!
try adding some to your lemonade or beverage of choice! but caution, not all essential oils are created equal and not all are safe to take internally. make sure your essential oil bottle says that it is safe for internal usage.
