Cooking with Wild Orange Essential Oil
Anywhere it asks for the rind/zest in a recipe you can use your citrus oils, typically 1 drop of citrus can substitute for 1 tsp of zest. If a recipe calls for the zest 1 citrus fruit you can use 3-10 drops of the oil instead.
It goes well with cinnamon, ginger and other citrus essential oils, like in my Citrus Bliss cake recipe.
