It’s Turkey Time….and

Basted Holiday Turkey Recipe Featuring dōTERRA Fragrant and Flavorful Stuffing

It’s turkey time! This Thanksgiving, give your family and friends a turkey they will love and remember. 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

Cider Baste:

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!
