Hello fellow oilers!

Are you as excited about the Young Living Vitality line as I am? Yay! For those of you who aren't familiar, the Vitality line from Young Living is a dietary line labeled specifically for internal use! They all come in 5ml bottles making them reasonable and a convenient to purchase! There are four distinct categories: citrus, herb, spice and supplement! How fun for cooking and ingesting internally!

Today we are using Lemon essential oil for a fun, delicious and easy dinner! Shrimp, lemon and basil are a perfect flavor combo in my opinion! Sauteed, and tossed with pasta, this meal couldn't be any easier to prepare and the whole family really loves it! It totally reminds me of summer, especially when it's chilly and snowy outside! You could also try adding basil essential oil instead of fresh basil, but be careful! Basil EO is super strong. Dip a toothpick in the basil oil and swirl it in your pasta sauce to flavor. Adding too much will overpower the dish!

Hope you enjoy this recipe as much as we did!
