This shortbread recipe is one of my favorites. I love it with essential oil flavors or just plain vanilla. Sometimes I dip half of each cookie in chocolate. I have included the chocolate coating recipe in case you want to do that. It’s a fun option. 😉

Lemon Vitality Essential Oil Shortbread Cookies

Lemon Vitality Shortbread Cookies

2 cups blanched almond flour
½ cup einkorn flour
¼ teaspoon sea salt
¼ teaspoon baking soda
1 tsp xanthan gum
1/3 cup Swerve or Monk Fruit (I always do a blend of 2 natural sweeteners)
½ cup salted butter, melted
1 tablespoon vanilla extract

1. In a large bowl combine almond and einkorn flour, salt and baking soda.
2. In a smaller bowl, mix together Swerve, butter and vanilla
3. Mix wet ingredients into dry
4. Place dough in the center of a large piece of parchment paper and form into a large log approximately 2½ inches in diameter
5. Place in freezer for one hour, until firm, unwrap and cut into ⅛ inch thick slices
6. Place slices on a parchment lined baking sheet
7. Bake at 350° until lightly golden, 7-10 minutes
8. Cool and serve
Makes 24 cookies

To make Lemon Vitality Shortbread Cookies, use Lemon Vitality Oil

Add 2 or 3 drops of Vitality Essential Oils of whatever flavor you want:
Lemon, Orange, Lime, Lavender, Peppermint, Nutmeg, Cloves, Cinnamon
Adjust drops to desired taste.

Option: Sometimes I dip half of each cookie in chocolate. Here is the recipe I use for the coating:

Chocolate Coating:
4 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
2 ounces food grade cocoa butter
6 Tablespoons Swerve or other sugar substitute
1/4 teaspoon stevia concentrated powder
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

In a chocolate melter or double boiler, melt all chocolate coating ingredients together. Dip cookies in the chocolate halfway covering the cookie.

I remember Gary Young commenting that, if he could only choose one oil to use, it would be frankincense. Frankincense essential oil is one of the most versatile and powerful essential oils and it’s no surprise why it is commonly called, “The King of Oils.” I go through Frankincense faster than any other essential oil because it is so effective AND versatile! I love the way my skin feels and looks when I add it to my beauty routine. If you are ever wondering what oil to use, Frankincense is almost always a good choice!

Here are a few good ways to use Frankincense essential oil.

1. Uplifting – Frankincense is nice for you need a bit of an uplift to your mood. Some days are like that Wear it like a perfume and inhale. Frankincense is a good essential to diffuse.

2. Stress Relief – Apply to temples or wear as perfume. Inhale. Promotes feelings of relaxation and tranquility.

3. Support a Healthy Immune System – Take Frankincense Vitality Essential Oil 1-2 drops in a clear vegetable capsule as a supplement. You can also add to water, juice or NingXia Red.
Never take oils internally unless you are using Young Living Oils. Many oils are adulterated even though labeled 100% PURE.

4. Helps alleviate minor aches associated with daily life – Rub on areas of discomfort after a busy day.

5. Clean Cuts and Scrapes – Apply a drop of Frankincense to small cuts and scrapes to clean.

6. Supports and maintains the appearance of healthy-looking, radiant skin. Especially beneficial for mature complexions. Frankincense is a main ingredient in Young Living skin care products like ART Skincare, Sheerlume and several others.
DIY recipes: Healthy Skin Care with Essential Oils

    Massage a drop of Frankincense into facial skin after cleansing, followed by applying your regular moisturizers.
    Massage Frankincense anywhere skin needs a boost to help reduce the appearance of uneven skin and blemishes.
    Add a few drops to your face cream or body lotion and rub directly into skin.
    Massage into the skin on hands and feet after a long day to restore skin’s texture.

Sacred Frankincense vs. Frankincense, do you know the difference?

Young Living offers both Frankincense and Sacred Frankincense essential oils. These oils have similar properties and can be easy to confuse. Both essential oils come from the frankincense tree, but are found in different species. You may know that there are many different types of eucalyptus, for example, Eucalyptus Radiata, Eucalyptus Blue, and Eucalyptus Globulus are all different species of Eucalyptus essential oils that Young Living offers. Boswellia Carterii (Frankincense) and Boswellia Sacra (Sacred Frankincense) are different types of Frankincense essential oil Young Living offers!
Here’s how you can tell these two oils apart!

– Comes from the Boswellia carterii tree
– Produced primarily in Somalia, along with more than 80 percent of the world’s production
– Used more commonly to support healthy-looking skin
– Contains the powerful component Insensol

Sacred Frankincense:
– Comes from the Boswellia sacra tree
– Produced in Oman and grows in challenging climates
– Contains about 20% more alpha-pinene which contributes to its distinctive fragrance
-Used more commonly to heighten spiritual awareness.

I don’t know about you but, with all the stress going on with covid 19 quarantine, I have been struggling with emotional eating. I have been trying to keep healthier options around for better choices. This Chocolate Mint Fudge Squares recipe really filled the bill for me. Normally I don’t follow a recipe for this one but, since several people have asked me for a recipe, I thought I would put together some basic directions. It’s an easy one to change up in all kinds of ways.

I make several flavors of low carb fudge using coconut butter or nut butter as the base. This one is chocolate mint squares. I added cocoa butter to this recipe to make it set up firmer, like a candy bar. I usually do that when I am using chocolate.

Keto Chocolate Peppermint Fudge

Chocolate Mint Fudge Squares

Coconut Butter Base
1 cup raw coconut butter Sometimes I use coconut manna. I think it’s the same thing. Not sure. 😉
2 ounces cream cheese
3 TBS monk fruit or other natural sweetener of choice
Several drops liquid stevia
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon salt

2 ounces cocoa butter
1/4 cup cocoa powder
2 or 3 drops of peppermint essential oil.
Other essential oil flavors that go well with chocolate: cinnamon, orange, tangerine, lemon

I always mix 2 sweeteners. I tend to prefer less sweetness so I taste to get the level of sweet I like. Add more sweetener so get the level of sweetness you like.

In a mixing bowl, add coconut butter (or other nut butter) and cream cheese. Let it sit at room temperature until softened.

Add cocoa powder, vanilla and salt.
Melt the cocoa butter and slowly pour it into the coconut mixture. Mix until combined.

Pour the mixture into 8 inch square pan lined with parchment paper.
Refrigerate for an hour or so when using cocoa butter. This allows easier cutting into squares.

I slice the fudge in long strips, then, cut the first strip into squares. Next, with scissors, cut the parchment paper so the fudge stays sitting on the paper. Repeat with all the strips. This allows them to be stacked in a container in the fridge.
Return to the fridge until its completely set.

Chocolate Peppermint

Use peanut butter or other nut butters using this same recipe. Chocolate peanut butter fudge is another really tasty treat.

Stress is a normal part of our modern life. We live in a fast paced high stress world. Our modern lifestyles add more daily stress than our bodies are made to handle. Studies have shown that modern, everyday stresses, if left unchecked, can negatively impact our health.

There are also times when we go through times of higher levels of stress. We need ways to relieve every day stress but even more so when we are going through times of higher levels of stress. Essential oils can be one way to help with that. Young Living has many wonderful oils for this purpose. You may have some on hand. Whatever your favorite calming oils you have, you can use them topically, diffuse or with EFT. More on EFT at the bottom of this post.

Here are a few good oil options when you need to relax during times of stress:
Stress Away
Peace & Calming
White Angelica
Citrus Oils
Roman Chamomile
Ylang Ylang

There are a lot of other good choices of oils for stressful times. These oils can be used in diffuser, make up roller bottles, make bath salts, used topically and many other ways. Plus . . .

Any of these oils can be used with EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques. Just add a couple drops of essential oil to your fingertips before you begin tapping through the points.

Tap While You Gripe is one of my favorite ways to use Emotional Freedom Techniques. It is a super simple technique. Just tap and tell the story. Focus on the negative feelings and tap and talk it through.

Example: While tapping through the points, say: “I am so stressed. We are stuck at home. We are under a stay at home order and the kids are driving me crazy! This is so scary! ….” Tap through the points and pour out your feelings. Keep going until you feel better. Once you have released enough of the negative feelings, switch to positive. End with some thoughts on strength and confidence or anything positive you want to feel.

Don’t get too worried about the exact wording you use or what order of points to tap. You don’t even really need to say the words out loud. Just focus on the negative emotion you want to clear. Keep talking and tapping.

EFT Points:
KC = Karate Chop
EB = Beginning of the Eye Brow
SE = Side of the Eye
UE = Under the Eye
UN = Under the Nose
Ch = Chin
CB = Beginning of the Collar Bone
UA = Under the Arm
WR = Inside of Wrists
TH = Top of Head

You can also tap the fingertip points. Each finger can be tapped at the base of the nail.
