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
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!
Essential oils are natural aromatic compounds found in the seeds, bark, stems, roots, flowers, and other parts of plants. They can be both beautifully and powerfully fragrant. If you have ever enjoyed the gift of a rose, a walk by a field of lavender, or the smell of fresh cut mint, you have experienced the aromatic qualities of essential oils. In addition to giving plants their distinctive smells, essential oils provide plants with protection against predators and disease and play a role in plant pollination.
Essential oils are non water-based phytochemicals made up of volatile organic compounds. Although they are fat soluble, they do not include fatty lipids or acids found in vegetable and animal oils. Essential oils are very clean, almost crisp, to the touch and are immediately absorbed by the skin. Pure, unadulterated essential oils are translucent and range in color from crystal clear to deep blue.
Try this at home: Squeeze the peel of a ripe orange. The fragrant residue on your hand is full of essential oils.In addition to their intrinsic benefits to plants and being beautifully fragrant to people, essential oils have been used throughout history in many cultures for their medicinal and therapeutic benefits. Modern scientific study and trends towards more holistic approaches to wellness are driving a revival and new discovery of essential oil health applications.
