Enhancing Culinary Creations with Essential Oils

Cooking preparations are not just about nourishing our bodies; it’s also an art form that allows us to explore flavors, experiment with ingredients, and create delightful experiences. While we often rely on traditional herbs and spices to add depth to our dishes, there’s another secret ingredient that can take your cooking to the next level: pure essential oils. In this blog, we will dive into the world of cooking with essential oils and discover how they can elevate and enhance our culinary creations.

Pure essential oils are highly concentrated extracts derived from various plants, capturing their aromatic, health, and flavor compounds. A plant’s essential oil is known as its “soul” or “essence”.

  • Intense Flavor: Essential oils offer a potent burst of flavor, often more concentrated than dry or fresh plant matter. A single drop can infuse your dish with aromatic essence, enhancing the overall taste.
  • Hard-To-Find Ingredient Substitute: For example, fresh lavender flowers cannot be found easily and at certain times of the year, impossible to get.
  • Versatility: Essential oils can be used in a wide range of dishes, from savory to sweet. Whether you’re preparing a salad dressing, marinade, soup, or dessert, there’s an essential oil that can complement and elevate the flavors.
  • Health Benefits: Their therapeutic properties can support overall well-being. For example, peppermint oil may aid digestion, while lemon oil can provide antioxidants and astringent constituents.
  • Learn How to Support Your Health: By experimenting with different essential oils, researching and getting to know the specific oils you plan to use, may open your mind and help you to think outside of the box when it comes to new methods of meal preparations & health support.
  • Cost-Effective: There are approximately 600 drops of essential oil in each 1 oz. bottle. It takes around 80 lemons to make 1 oz. of essential oil!

General Guideline:

  • A Little Goes A Long Way; It may be best to start with only 1 drop and work up dish by dish. Essential oils are highly concentrated, so a little goes a long way. I personally started with 5 drops and the taste overpowered the meal. Begin by adding a single drop to your recipe and gradually increase if desired. Remember, it’s easier to add more flavor than to dilute an overpowering taste. This also helps to disperse the flavor all throughout the dish.
  • Dilute when Necessary: Some essential oils, such as oregano or cinnamon, can be quite potent and may require dilution. To avoid overwhelming your dish, consider diluting the oil with a carrier, depending on what your ingredients are. Due to essential oils needing a lipid carrier, one may already be present in your dish.
  • Choose Flavors That Are Complimentary to Your Dish: Experiment with different essential oils to find combinations that work well together. For example, lavender oil can add a subtle floral note to desserts, while herbaceous oils like basil, rosemary, or thyme oil can enhance the flavors of Italian-inspired dishes.
  • Timing is Key: Essential oils are volatile and can lose their potency when exposed to high heat for extended periods. To preserve their flavors, it’s best to add essential oils towards the end of the cooking process or even as a finishing touch.
  • Understand Essential Oil Volatility: Some compounds and flavor components may be lost if they are heated too long or at high temperatures. Get to know your oils!
  • By adding a drop of lemon to your chicken and seafood dishes, especially when you add a dash of white wine.
  • Mints, like peppermint may be tasty as an additive to chocolate flavored desserts or in ice teas.
  • Most herbaceous oils, such as basil, thyme, rosemary, go well with tomato dishes, such as Bruschetta, pasta, and most Italian meals. . It also synergizes with other oils like garlic, to create your own taste!
  • Bay Laurel is commonly known as “Bay Leaf”, which many others steep in soups, stews, and pasta sauces.
  • Asafoetida is a popular Indian spice! It is also known as “Hing” or “ferula”. It has a garlicy aroma, and it is said to have an onion flavor, which may be why it is often paired with these same spices in food. It is said to enhance their taste and it goes well in curries and meats.
  • Carrot essential oil is actually also known as “Queen Anne’s lace”, which is often the plant used to distill “Carrot” oil! There may be different ideas to be found by looking at recipes from different cultures! Some cultures call it by one name or the other.
  • Add a punch of flavor to your bread by adding a drop or two of orange essential oil.
  • I love to add garlic essential oil to my pasta noodle water, enhancing the noodle itself with a garlicy flavor. I also love to add it to my finished macaroni and cheese dishes.
  • Add a drop of lemon essential oil, rather than fresh zest, or to invigorate your cup of tea!
  • Some essential oils known for their flavor, may not exhibit the flavors in the oils themselves. For example, vanilla essential oil probably will not give food a vanilla flavor. However, it may result in a magnificent vanilla scent.
  • Create your own healthy synergies by experimenting with different flavors. Do your own research and look up the benefits of each, individual oil, to create a menu that has the health properties, adaptogens, and the type of support that you are seeking!
  • There is always the choice to use blends of essential oils as well, which offer multidimensional flavor and benefits! This is especially the case with our Garlic Tears, a trio of garlic, asafoetida, and black pepper!
  • THE most important factor is to only use high-quality, food-grade essential oils, such as our own, found below. This ensures there are no harmful additives to your oils.
  • Always follow the recommended guidelines for essential oil use, including the dilution, if any, and at what time it may be best to add to your preparation.
  • Essential oils are corrosive to plastic, especially in their pure form. Only use wood or silicone utensils to stir the essential oil in. Afterward, soak the utensil in hot, soapy water and wash it well.
  • Do your research before you plan to use the oil, giving you time to plan out the appropriate steps.
  • Always start with 1 drop. It will be much easier to add more if needed, than to attempt to dilute a strong flavor.
  • Do not use essential oils in place of any medications and always consult your practitioner with any questions and your intentions when it comes to essential oil use.
  • It is very important to stay away from essential oils in high amounts during pregnancy. Essential oils are even more concentrated than many herbs/spices are in powdered form.
  • Last, but not least, you must heed caution with essential oils if you are on specific medications. Essential oils are potent and known potentiators and for lowering the effects of some medications. The actions of the plant/oil may counteract, lessen, or make your medications even stronger! Consult your physician beforehand if you are taking medication.

Cooking with pure essential oils opens up a world of possibilities, allowing you to explore new dimensions of taste and aroma in your culinary creations. In moderation, with a little experimentation, and using individual creativity, you can transform your dishes into extraordinary culinary masterpieces. So, go ahead and embark on this aromatic journey, and let the flavors of essential oils tantalize your taste buds like never before!

Dr. Stephen Harrod Buhner Has Passed…

Stephen Harrod Buhner

Dr. Stephen Harrod Buhner, passed away on December 8, 2022. Yet it was not unexpected, as he predicted and wrote about the process of dying, from his own perspective. He prepared himself and his followers through his posts and blog. He will live on, through his blogs and books, which we will forever cherish.

He loved writing and he loved helping others. The world will miss him and there will He loved writing and through his works, he helped millions of people. He was an author of 24 books, 1 is just being released, and 10 of which are award-winners. He wrote articles, memoirs, short stories, and poetry on nature, herbal medicine, the environment, and indigenous culture. The world will miss him and there will never be another like him, as he was a true pioneer. To read more about him and his accomplishments, here is a link to a self-written biography: https://www.stephenharrodbuhner.com/about/

On his social media page, his loved ones posted: “There is a saying in some places on the continent of Africa that says something like: When an old man dies, a library burns. It was a favorite among many of Stephen’s. An elder has died. Stephen died yesterday morning, December 8th around 9:30 am mountain time. He was in a ceremony with friends and family. He was aware, conscious, present, open hearted and humorous. He was himself all the way through. And so very brave. Our hearts are heavy as they have ever been. We miss him terribly. He will be buried this morning in his beloved forest. Thank you all for all the kindness you showed him in these past weeks and months, it meant the very world to him. Stephen said your comments felt like a living wake.”

Stephen is an interdisciplinary, independent scholar, polymath, and author or 23 books (and working on others), numerous articles, and essays and have achieved some mastery in a variety of subjects a few being bacterial ecology, resistance dynamics; plant intelligence and ecology, human psychology and psychotherapy, biological self-organization; nonlinearity; contemplative spirituality, transcultural epistemology and more.

I feel blessed to have had a conversation with him. I am deeply saddened. When I first began my journey, I was determined to find answers. Instead, I found Dr. Buhner’s work and I felt that he had already found many of the answers. His contributions to this world are far more than I could mention, and I spent over five years advocating him, his work, and his teachings to all of my followers.

As he tells us in his book, “Healing Lyme”, that his parents were doctors. He became one himself, giving him a unique perspective, and knowledge, as an herbalist. With his background, love for nature, writing, and plants, he became a unique teacher for the world that knew little of it all. He wrote about everything from intelligent pathogens to the consciousness of plants. He taught us through his books, blogs, and posts and all the way up to the end, he posted to his fans, personally, on social media. He taught us in an easily understandable way. He taught us to get to know the pathogen itself and the plants that we use.

On December 4, 2022, he wrote: Facebook A Last Post

HI All

Regrettably, my body has taken a severe turn for the worst; it doesn’t look like it will be able to be corrected. I spend most of the day sleeping; I am having seizures and mini-strokes now. Julie brings me back from them but it is getting harder and harder for her to do so. It’s only a few more days now. Sorry for this last long journey into night. I had hoped to find a different outcome.

Pulmonary fibrosis is not a kind disease and in many ways cancer is far more benevolent oddly enough. I have spent most of my time on the couch in front of the computer or about 20 feet away lying in bed, that is about all I can do and I have to have help to make it that far. I can no longer move on my own. Your very kind donations have allowed us to clear all our credit cards and buy a few expensive care items that we had hoped to have and which have helped immensely. You have helped us so much in the end; this has made more of a difference than you know and I can’t thank you deeply enough.

I am lucky enough to be buried deep in the Gila Forest in a place few people are aware of. luckily, New Mexico is still supportive of home and green burial. So it is just me and my beloved forest, right adjacent to the Aldo Leopold wilderness area, which makes a lot of sense to me given my life’s work. The truth is that as I have grown older and more tired, I feel my connection to the land more deeply. I have been lucky enough to be buried in a handmade woolen shroud. One made with care and love, the deer buttons are quite lovely.

Julie and Trishuwa will have some posts to make in the coming weeks.

I did manage to finish my last book, BecomingV. It will be out in a number of weeks. Only 500 or so; I did not get to see it in print. I left quite a number of signed stickers to be placed in some of the books though I don’t expect them to last long. I wish you all the best, safe travel in your lives.

Green blessings,

Stephen Harrod Buhner

I wrote to him and told him that he was my inspiration, that his herbs and the information he shared were the game-changers in helping us to get well, and that I had named a product after him. I never expected a response from him, as I just wanted to put my feelings out into the universe. Surprisingly, he replied and he thanked me for thinking of him, by naming something after him. My love and respect for him only increased from there. He wrote a blog on what it is like to be in the dying stages of life. It touched me deeply, as I read it in tears. It was reading this blog that allowed me to mourn his loss, in my own personal way. Only he, and in the final stages of his life, could write such an article: https://www.stephenharrodbuhner.com/articles/on-aging/

Dr. Stephen Harrod Buhner, I have lived the past five years following, respecting, and wanting to get to know you, and your work, even more. When I was grieving the loss of my own son, I locked myself in with your books and I when I finally came out, I was a new person, inspired and determined to help others. You gave me a new life. Even if you were unaware, you have always been my guide, my light, and my teacher. I will forever keep you in my heart, as you have become a part of who I am today. You are, and always be, a part of my story…….

Medicinal Mushrooms Game Changer – Boosting Vitamin D

brown mushroom on ground

Vitamin D is known as the “Sunshine Vitamin”. Ironically, at the same time diseases are at an epidemic high, vitamin D deficiency potentially affects 1 billion people world-wide. It is a game-changer that this issue may be resolved with a very simple process that involves exposing mushrooms to light, coaxing them to produce much more vitamin D! (1)

Plants do not contain vitamin D, as we can only obtain it from an animal source. (2) Mushrooms are in a classification of their own, although having commonalities with both plants and animals. Like animals, they require an external source of nutrition, similar to parasites, taking what they need from decomposing matter. Like animals they have no chlorophyll and have eukaryotic cells. (2) On the other hand, like plants, they convert sunlight into energy. Plants turn sunlight into chlorophyll, whereas mushrooms convert it into vitamin D. (2)

Current animal sources for vitamin D supplementation may cause many issues to arise. Livestock, dairy, eggs, and aquaculture animals may not have proper nutrition levels themselves. Many of these animals see little to no sunlight. They are fed synthetic nutrition, including hormones, and this too may affect the assimilation of vitamin D. Additionally, animal sources are not allowed for vegans and there are many that do not want to take synthetic variations of vitamin D supplementation. Lastly, even mushrooms that are farm-raised may have some of the same issues, as they are grown in the dark.

There is a magical conversion that happens when you expose mushrooms to UV light. Similar to how humans experience photochemical processes that product vitamin D. (3) 

Using UV-A and UV-C lighting to boost the vitamin D content of mushrooms, ourselves, may be the answer that most are looking for! Surprisingly, this even works on them if they are sliced, powdered, and even dried. There are factors that determine the conversion such as species, parts of the mushroom used, surface area exposed, UV intensity, wavelength, and the moisture content.

The biggest game changer of all is to use this process on a tincture, which is suspended compounds in alcohol. It may not only avoid degradation but, with then applying the UV light, research has shown that the vitamin D content may be boosted to over 4,500%! This may be a game-changer!

We are offering to bathe your mushroom, or other products in UV light for 3 hours! Simply purchase your product as normal. Then you go to the UV Light Bath page, to purchase the bath itself separately. To be redirected to the UV Light Bath™ Product Page, Click Here!

  • Purchase any fresh or dried mushrooms – the study used button, shiitake, and oyster mushrooms.
  • Purchase a UV lamp that emits UV-A, and UV-C rays. A combination of UV-A and UV-C was found to be more effective at raising Vitamin D2 than UV-B. (4)
  • Place the mushrooms on a tray and slice them.
  • For 60 minutes, expose sliced mushrooms to UV-B light.
  • Take advantage of your free vitamin D2!

Not only is this process said to work on mushrooms and vitamin D content, but also on many types of vitamins and nutrients, including chlorophyll. While the focus here is on the vitamin D content of mushrooms, you may want to do your own research on the effects of using UV lighting to sterilize, enhance, and to grow your plants. There are many studies involving manipulating the growth, photosynthesis, chlorophyll, and nutrition content of your plants! (5)

Rope Worm Partial DNA Genome Translation

rope worm genome

The odds have seemed against any significant progress with Rope Worm studies, for many reasons. First, I must say that this translation is in no way affiliated by the genome founder. I simply spent an entire year translating, categorizing, and organizing the original genome. 

Aside from funding for studying Rope Worm DNA being slow, other aspects such as intelligent bacteria behavior, communication, and melding capabilities have not been appreciably studied at all. Very little is known about them.

It has been said that some of the components found may not even be in the genome bank itself! Those who have had an infection of Rope Worm, resulting in the release of this matter, know that the threat to our health is very real, and it may require bold and decisive attention.

Regardless, if Rope Worm is found to be a parasite, a creation by the body itself, or a collaboration of them both, we must learn of the mechanisms by which it forms and the behaviors of each of its components, as modern medicine has still to catch up and provide answers.

Modern science is not fully familiar with, recognizing, nor currently substantially studying the Rope Worm. It is only by taking matters into our own hands and putting the pieces of the puzzle together ourselves that we will progress to improve the lives of our current and future generations. In doing so, this topic may become common knowledge.

I feel it is associated with stagnation of our core, blocking energy and frequency, and ultimately making us dense and manipulated. Many that suffer with it also feel that it may intensify frequencies. I myself suffered from, and rid of, this matter. I now offer to you what helped me and others since!

I am not an expert but this information makes one thing clear: there may be an abundant bacterial aspect to this matter, which may be detrimental to the human body and you may want to consider getting it out. This is what we do best! We offer you solutions!

After spending months translating this genome, we found a few aspects concerning. This translation of the research contains many types of genetic material; it may not be “mostly” human, as we have been told. As a matter of fact, the results show that less than half of the proteins are of humans origin!

Some health experts tell us their interpretation of this genome is that it contains mostly retroviral particles. As far as we can tell, there is only a single viral component present. The results also indicate there may be extra human chromosomes present that isn’t even common knowledge. 

Lastly, with many sufferers claiming to be affected by what they call “textile fibers”, there are quite a few cotton proteins present, interestingly. It is clear that, until now, this genome has not been given adequate attention.

It seems as though translating this genome may have created even more questions than before we started. Why is it that so many websites tell us that specific particles in the results can only be found in a specific animal, plant, or nonhuman source? 

For example, there are bacteria that are found in the gastrointestinal tract of firebugs, some of the snakes, and others specifically in lizards. In this particular subject, there were proteins present from rare and strange animals like the alligator, Beluga whale, European rabbit, laughing hyena, Kiwi bird, and the Tibetan antelope, which is said to be endangered.

There are particles present that are used in biotechnology, others that are associated with magnetic particle production, and others that specialize in drainage pipe destruction. Clearly, this is a complicated matter that may require many types of professionals and disciplines to come together to completely understand the many present particles, pathogens, and processes.

We cannot say why certain genetic material is present in this person whose Rope Worm was tested. Maybe the matter is a collection of genetic “trash” denied by the body, and maybe it’s not!

Maybe this collection contains melding aspects that may create something entirely new. We can only speculate, like everyone else. Sticking to the facts is imperative.

We are proud of the endless work put into this translation. It has allowed us to see the pathogens involved in this particular person. We are all different, yet we have created some products, keeping these results in mind. Please click on the names of these products to be redirected to them, elsewhere on this website. We have “Rope Solutions” herbal products, such as tinctures, lipospheric tinctures, glycerites, capsules, and herbal tea. Lastly, as we do with all of our signature blends, we also create an essential oil blend “Rope Solutions” with similar compounds.

Cleanse & Product Synergy…

Herbs can be selective, meaning, they may fight the harmful organisms while passing by the beneficial ones. They may have capabilities of dismantling harmful biofilms and encysted pathogens. When biofilms, fungi, and mucus are involved, immunity may be compromised. As we kill, sweep, nourish, and support our bodies, what may take place is balance and stability, resulting in homeostasis.

Detoxification is a cycle of binding, deeply pulling in, and delivering compounds on a proverbial silver platter, then grabbing harmful compounds & carrying them out through excretions like sweat, urine, and stool. Sweeping the intestinal tract may reduce the levels of pathogenic biofilms, hardened fecal matter, and other types of matter and debris. The internal terrain needs to be revamped, including the gut biome.

Tinctures contain extracted and readily available compounds, just like how plants uptake them from the soil in nature! It is difficult for some herbs to cross the blood/brain barrier, therefore I use adaptogens to assist other compounds in deeper absorption and penetration. Tinctures are taken under the tongue, where sublingual absorption takes place. This may transport them to the organs and other areas, via bloodstream circulation. There are many routes to accomplish this, for example, suppositories, the nasal passage, belly button soaking, and utilizing the higher absorption spots on the body, like the armpits, under the breasts, and the veins on the back of the neck. Best results have been seen with taking tinctures in concert with other products.

A common question is for suggestions as to what to eat while detoxing. Thankfully I found the raw egg benefits when dealing with my family’s issues. They gave our body sustenance on a cellular level. See my raw egg smoothie recipe below! As I cleansed they provided the excessive vitamins, nutrients, and collagen, which was key to our rebuilding.

Getting proper sleep, a clean, sugar~free diet, drinking clean water, detox baths, occupying thoughts and our minds, and appropriate exercise, may be imperative to climbing a steep but steady slope back towards well~being. A great tool may be to follow the glycemic diet that is common for diabetics to monitor sugar intake. Stopping all sources of processed sugar is a must! Collagen supplementation is essential because every pathogen may feed on ours. You would think that supplementing collagen would feed them, but rather the opposite. It seemed to repair faster than damage could take place.

I try to think outside the box and share my tips with you! Take this advice and run with it, as I come from a place of no help, no advice, and few to no solutions. I urge you to look and read up on the products and information shared throughout this site, there is a plethora of valuable research, information, and other things to learn!

Happy Cleansing !!!
