This is a fantastic blend to keep on hand for making spiced cider in the fall and winter! This blend also makes a great gift along with a gallon of fresh-pressed apple juice or cider.
Add oils to a 5ml glass bottle (like these or use a recycled bottle):
- 8 drops Young Living Lemon oil
- 8 drops Nutmeg oil
- 20 drops Cinnamon Bark oil
- 20 drops Orange oil
- 20 drops Clove oil (optional)
Add lid to bottle and swirl gently to combine.
To use oil blend in cider: Add 5-7 drops of the blend per quart of apple cider. (Add 20-28 drops to a gallon of cider. Start with fewer drops and add more to taste.) Warm spiced cider gently on stove for 60-90 minutes. Do not boil to preserve the gentle properties of the essential oils. Garnish with orange slices and fresh cranberries if desired.
A 5ml bottle will spice 3-4 gallons of cider. You may also add 1-2 drops to a cup of warm cider.
Your house will smell great and you will benefit from the healthful benefits of the YL oils with the cider!
(When ingesting essential oils, be sure to use only Young Living oils)
