I’m grateful for a lot of things—my family, my dog, the mountains I live in, and, topping the list, bread. We even have a well-intentioned joke in my family where we say we are on a gluten-inclusive diet. But, don’t get me wrong, even gluten-free bread is delish. I definitely don’t discriminate when it comes to my bread. I like it toasted, roasted, cheesy, and greasy; wheat, white, sliced and diced; glazed, raised, and…emblazed? Okay, I’m done.

My point is, stuffing is definitely the best part of the Thanksgiving meal because it’s the best kind of glorified bread. Here’s the perfect way to incorporate some of the best-tasting essential oils into your holiday stuffing. Did I mention I’m super grateful for you, too (like, almost as much as bread)? Enjoy!
