LEARN HOW TO MAKE YOUR OWN SEASON SALTS WITH ESSENTIAL OILS.  I HAVE SEVERAL VARIATIONS FOR ANY MEAL THAT ARE DELICIOUS AND SIMPLE TO MAKE.  

I love creating healthy recipes in my kitchen for my family to enjoy.  We stick to a pretty basic diet high in protein, vegetables, and fruits.  To add flavor I like to use a lot of seasonings, unfortunately these can be loaded with unhealthy ingredients. I am not sure why they have to add artificial flavors and colors to spices, but they do.

Making your own can be simple and then you know exactly what is in them.  Today, I want to share a little secret ingredient that I like to add to my homemade seasonings…essential oils! With essential oils you can make several different flavoring salts to add to any and every meal.

FIRST, LETS TALK ABOUT SALT! 

Salt can be a confusing topic, some say it is healthy others say to avoid it.  But we all know that salt is delicious and is a crucial spice to have in the kitchen.  Am I right?  I have a “salty” tooth and would choose a salty treat over ice-cream any day of the week.  The type of salt you are cooking with is crucial!

TABLE SALT

Table salt is the most popular salt and can be found in almost all processed foods, restaurants, and kitchens.  It is harvested from underground salt deposits.  It is highly processed, refined, and finely ground.  During the process almost all the nutrients are loss and an anti-clumping agent is added.

This is the salt that gives all salts a bad rep!

SEA SALT

Sea salt is harvested from evaporated ocean water (or salt lakes) and more course than table salt.  Very little processing goes into this leaving it unrefined and packed full of trace minerals.  Adding natural salt to your diet can help you to stay hydrated, has benefits for your heart, balances electrolytes, and supports a healthy nervous system.

PINK HIMALAYAN SALT

Harvested from the pink Himalayan mountains, this salt is known to be the most purest form of salt in the World.  It is rich in minerals and contains 84 trace minerals.  This salt has a beautiful pink color but can vary from light to dark pink.

It is high in magnesium, can balance the bodies pH levels, and regulate blood sugar levels.

HOW TO MAKE YOUR OWN SEASON SALTS WITH ESSENTIAL OILS 

Pick the flavor you want to make and in a small bowl mix together all the ingredients.  Store in an airtight container.

Remember essential oils are very potent and a little can season a lot.  Start with a small amount and add more to taste.

Whenever possible add the seasoning salt at the end of cooking to preserve the therapeutic benefits of the essential oils.
