Many people are timid about using essential oils in recipes. And for good reason; a drop or two too much of concentrated essential oil can spoil a dish in a hurry. If you want to add a bit of flavor to some recipes without worrying about overdoing it, try these essential oil-infused sea salts. You can create endless combinations to create unique salts for all of your favorite dishes.
