The Best Homemade Enchilada Sauce Ever @MamaKautz

First of all I am not going to be come a foodie blogger. Seriously. I HAVE to share this recipe with you.

It was so good. Leftovers the next day were better. I think I will try this again in the crockpot and see if that makes a difference as well.

Ingredients
2 C. Chicken Broth
2T Olive Oil
2T Flour
1T Garlic Powder (or more if you like garlic)
1/2 t Salt 1 t Cumin (I used 1.5t because we really like cumin)
2T Chili Powder (We used hot chili powder)
Pièce de Résistance 3 drops of Lime Essential Oil
Instructions
Put Olive Oil in sauce pan over medium heat
Add spices until fragrant
Add Chicken Broth Reduce heat and let simmer for about 10 minutes

Enchilada Seasonings
I buy my seasonings at a local store. I am all about supporting small businesses.

Seasonings and Olive Oil
Seasonings and olive oil, before I stirred. This is a red sauce. Unfortunately I didn’t get a picture of the acutal enchiladas because they were so yummy and disappeared quickly.

Lime-Essential-Oil-Yummm-300x258
I thought, on a whim, lets add some Lime. I was going to add 2-3 drops, it was more like 5 or 6 but it only added to the flavor. SO GOOD!

I am going to make a HUGE batch of this sauce and can it for my food storage.

What to use Clove Essential Oil for

Clove oil is good for oral support….Do you have a teenager in braces? Clove oil can help alleviate that monthly adjustment discomfort.

Use Clove oil with Wild Orange to kill the sugar monster.

Place one drop of Clove in two ounces of water and gargle for a soothing effect.

Helps to clean the teeth and gums while promoting fresh breath.

During your nightly routine, add one drop of clove to your toothbrush before applying toothpaste.

During the Fall and Winter season, diffuse three drops Clove, two drops Cinnamon, and one drop Wild Orange for an invigorating scent.

Not all EO’s can be used internally or even topically. This is where essential oil companies are different.
Please use common sense when using EO’s and if you have ANY questions please e-mail at Oils@MamaKautz.com

How Using Essential Oils Saves you Money

Click here to view the original post.

Saving Money in your Household Budget by Using Essential Oils

When trying to convince sharing oils with people one of the biggest roadblocks for NOT trying them is cost.
Quality oils are an investment. It does take some time to build up your supply.
Can I tell you where I am saving money, now, as a result of using doTERRA?
My household budget.
Now you are asking how can you save money when you are spending it on essential oils.
Well, let me tell you.

I no longer buy
Lysol®
Febreeze®
Wood Cleaner
Windex®
Toothpaste (Ok I still buy toothpaste, but I buy my favorite brand and get points to use for free oils)
Shampoo
Conditioner
Deodorant
Hand Soap (Again, I buy the protective blend foaming soap and get points towards more product)
Sunscreen
Shaving Cream

I have replaced these items with oils. Yes, there are a few items I needed to purchase to make my own products, but the cost isn’t that much and bonus; I reduced my toxic load at the same time.

Let’s do a price comparison.
For the sake of time I will use Amazon prices vs doTERRA Wholesale price.
Remember, also, I get points to use for free product.

Lysol® = $9.20
Protective blend Concentrate $14.50 = .52 per TBSP. I use 2 TBSP per spray bottle or $1.04 per bottle. This is what I use to clean my counters in my bathroom and kitchen.

Febreeze® $4.18 (9.7oz)
Cleansing blend $18 or .07 per drop I use purify in a spray bottle 10 drops added to water. So .70 for an 8oz bottle of air freshener. I can also spray the dogs with this because it is nontoxic.

Windex 32 oz $3.69

A recipe with household ingredients.
1/4 -1/2 tsp Liquid Castille Soap
3 tbsp Vinegar
2 cups Water
10 drops Essential Oil of Choice-
Peppermint $20.50 or .08 per drop
Lemon $10 or .04 per drop
Wild Orange $10 or .04

Murphy’s Oil Soap 32oz $7.99
Again, here is a recipe with household ingredients I already have on hand.
1/4 cup White Vinegar
1/4 cup Water
1/2 tsp Liquid Castille Soap
1/8 tsp Olive Oil
10 drops Orange $10.50 or .04 per drop or.40

As you can see the prices really are affordable. I want to stress the added benefit of non toxic. Your kids can safely use these cleaners and not worry about fumes or getting it on their skin.
