So, one of my favorite holiday drinks happens to be hot apple cider. Yum! So autumn-y, so wintery, just warm and spicy and perfect. I used to have a recipe I would get out each Thanksgiving and Christmas, which involved several different spices and fruits, but this year I tried something different.
Going in the name of simplicity and efficiency, I tried replacing the spices I used with pure therapeutic grade essential oils. (Click here to learn more about essential oils and the brand I recommend.)
The updated recipe was a hit! If you have these oils on hand, go ahead and try this hot apple cider using essential oils, and see what you think!
How to Make Hot Apple Cider Using Essential Oils
by: Danielle at lovelovething.com
- 8 cups apple cider (can also use apple juice, but I prefer the cider)
- 1/3 cup pure maple syrup
- 8 whole allspice berries
- 4 drops cinnamon bark essential oil
- 4 drops clove bud essential oil
- 4 drops wild orange essential oil
- 4 drops lemon essential oil
Bring to a boil and simmer at least 15 minutes, but you can simmer in a crock pot on low all day if you want. Serve! Yum!
I know there are many different essential oil brands out there, and many claim to be therapeutic. 🙂 I have tried many different brands, and there’s a reason I went with doTERRA, who tests their oils seven different ways. The oils that have supplement facts on the label. The ones which are pure enough to put in hot apple cider. Please take note, and don’t try to ingest an inferior oil. It’s not worth it. 🙂
Have a beautiful day,
