This supplement delivers a unique and standardized Boswellia serrata extract (not an essential oil) that has been clinically studied to promote healthy mobility and function and can provide soothing support throughout the entire body.

Like boswellia, turmeric is a centuries old traditional Ayurvedic medicine that is also part of the popular spice Indian curry. The science behind turmeric’s soothing role in overworked muscles and joints is now recognized by experts throughout the world. Ginger root has also been used for centuries throughout Asia as a traditional medicine and popular spice. Ginger was among the first spices brought to the New World and has long been Recommended for its natural soothing benefits.

If you are suffering from pain and inflammation you might want to give this a try.  I’ve been using it for a week and it has really helped with the nerve pain in my arm and neck!

{Basted Holiday Turkey Recipe with doTERRA Essential Oils}

Cooking / Food and Drink / Holidays / Learn About Benefits of Using DoTERRA Essential Oils / Recipes

It’s turkey time! This Thanksgiving, give your family and friends a turkey they will love and remember. Stuffed and basted with fresh herbs and essential oils, this turkey will not only be extremely flavorful and aromatic, but will also be the highlight of your Thanksgiving feast.

WARNING: You will most likely be asked to provide this turkey for all future Thanksgiving dinners after you serve this star. Serve at your own risk.

1 (13-pound) turkey
1 onion, peeled and quartered

Divide These Ingredients in Half:
2 sprigs rosemary
2 drops dōTERRA rosemary essential oil
3 sprigs fresh thyme
1 drop dōTERRA thyme essential oil
2 cloves garlic, slivered

Cider Baste:
1/4 cup apple cider concentrate
2 drops dōTERRA wild orange essential oil
1 drop dōTERRA lemon essential oil
2 tsp. olive oil
1 toothpick dōTERRA thyme essential oil
1/4 tsp. salt
Freshly ground black pepper

Remove giblets from turkey. Place turkey on a rack and stuff with the onion and half of the rosemary, thyme, and garlic mixture. Loosen the skin from the turkey breast and place the remaining half of the mixture under the skin.

To prepare the baste, stir together the cider concentrate, wild orange essential oil, lemon essential oil, olive oil, thyme, salt, and pepper.

Roast the turkey in a preheated 325-degree oven, basting every 30 minutes with the cider baste until an internal temperature reaches at least 165 degrees in the innermost part of the thigh, the wing, and the thickest part of the breast. (Some diners may want the turkey cooked to a higher temperature.) Carve and enjoy!

Food and Drink / Restaurant Reviews


You guys!  Have you been to Pallet in Salt Lake City yet?  Soooo good!  I’ve heard loads of great things about this place, but haven’t had the opportunity to get there until a few nights ago!

We had reservations for 6:00, and arrived a bit early.  Spent a few minutes at the bar learning about all the unique cocktails that Pallet is famous for!  Yum!

Loved the décor and the really cozy feel of the restaurant!  Our party of 5 was seated in a corner table with benches and pillows.  Really nice!

We started our night with their famous cocktails.  I had the Garden Smash which definitely had a good kick to it with the jalapeno!!  The Farmers Market Sour was really good as well!

We started our meal with an order of Truffle Fries (delicious) as well as a few orders of the Pork Belly!  Both were great and did not disappoint!

I chose the NY Steak for dinner with exceeded my expectations.  Whenever I order my steak “Medium”, I always get it back closer to “Rare”.  At Pallet, it was cooked perfectly!  The cipollini onions and broccolini were very tasty, but next to the steak, I loved the Baked Mac & Cheese!  Such a great comfort dish!

We were too full from dinner to order dessert, so we skipped that.  Bummer!

I can’t wait to get back to Pallet and try more of the entrees!  Soooo delish!


Have you eaten at Pallet before?  If so, I’d love to hear your experience!  Any other restaurants you LOVE and that you’d like to tell me about?
