01 Jun Probiotic dip
I had some leftover brine at the bottom of my fermented veggies jar so rather than throw it out, I was wondering what I could use it for. Dip! Probiotic dip!
I based my recipe on this one from Georgia Harding at Well Nourished, but I modified it by adding in the brine from my fermented veggies along with some immune supporting essential oils.
I taste tested along the way and initially the thyme was quite overpowering so be careful adding essential oils to your food. Just remember essential oils are pure extracts from plants that are 50-70 times more powerful than herbs so a little goes a long way. You could even start off with adding a clean toothpick into the orifice of the essential oil bottle then dipping the toothpick into the dip.
I love flavouring my food with these incredible essential oils that are beyond organic. They are certified pure therapeutic grade. So that means every single batch is third party tested to ensure they are free from contaminants and fillers. In addition to taking the flavour to the next level they also support the body naturally where it needs support. I think it’s pretty cool how the same bottle of essential oil can be used in so many ways. For example I used lemon essential oil in this dip recipe. I also use lemon essential to flavour my water in the morning to kickstart my metabolism as well as in my all purpose spray with vinegar and water. Lemon can soothe an irritated throat, neutralise odours and elevate your mood. It is an antioxidant and detoxifier. Lemon essential oil naturally breaks down petrochemicals in the body. Pretty freakin cool hey! And a bottle of lemon essential oil only costs $13.50 wholesale and includes 250 drops so quite affordable when you work out how much it is per drop. Actually this site already has worked out how much each oil costs per drop.
Thyme essential oil is an antioxidant, highly antibacterial, antifungal, antimicrobial & antiviral. With a specific chemistry that supports a healthy immune system, Thyme is a potent, warm essential oil that holds powerful cleansing and purifying properties.
Rosemary essential oil has traditionally been used for its ability to help with gastrointestinal complaints. It is also a fantastic detoxifier. Taken internally, it helps to reduce nervous tension and occasional fatigue*.
Ginger essential oil is best known as a digestive aid and for helping to ease occasional indigestion and nausea*. It has a high level of antioxidants. Ginger essential oil is a warming essential oil that works as an antiseptic, laxative, tonic and stimulant.
Essential oils are not created equal. It is important if you are using them in your food, that they are at least food grade. doTERRA essential oils are beyond food grade and they are the only essential oils I use and recommend. I love flavouring my smoothies, raw chocolate, bliss balls, salad dressings, dips, etc etc with these incredible natural flavours. It is so much fun creating new masterpieces. I feel like I’m on masterchef!
