These. Cookies. Are. DEELISH. I know I did something similar to them a few weeks back, but these are a whole new recipe and I know a lot of people are familiar with the essential oils brand dōTERRA. They are top notch!I started following Chelsey Miller on Instagram (@essentialseveryday) and she posted a collaboration for bloggers. We’d receive a dōTERRA intro kit, and do a post on it. I was so excited! I had really wanted to try this brand of oils as I’ve heard so many amazing things about them. The quality of these oils are superb! The intro kits includes A lemon, lavender, and peppermint.
I only recently started getting into the many uses of essential oils because of my sister. She has taught me so much within the past few months that I’ve developed a love for them as well. I can tell her my stomach hurts and she’ll tell me to add some fennel oil to my water. I’ll tell her I have a headache, she hands me some peppermint oil to rub into my temples and anywhere else the headache is and boom feels SO much better (this is probably my fav secret, because I get headaches all the time so I was SUPER excited to receive it in the intro kit). I can go on and on about them, but frankly, I want to get to this delicious recipe 🙂
Lemon, Lavender & Orange Sugar Cookies
1 cup Earth Balance
1/3 cup sugar

Zest of 1 orange
