DIY: Cilantro Lime Rice

Craving a little restaurant style cilantro lime rice? Heck yeah!

But how can I make a home-made version of that cilantro lime rice without cilantro and without a lime?

Simple! Our handy-dandy essential oils to the rescue! Not only does the rice taste AMAZING, but the aroma of cilantro and lime in the air as the rice is cooking is simply FAB-U-LOUS!


The culinary uses and additional benefits of Cilantro have been documented for centuries. Internal use of doTERRA Cilantro essential oil promotes healthy digestion and supports healthy immune and nervous system functions. Applied topically, Cilantro is very soothing and cooling to the skin, and it adds a fresh, herbal aroma to any essential oil blend when diffused. Cilantro’s culinary uses are endless, adding a flavorful twist to meats, salads, dips, and guacamole.


Cold-pressed from the peel of fresh limes, doTERRA Lime essential oil is refreshing and energizing in both aroma and taste. Limes are frequently used in entrées and beverages for their fresh, citrus flavor. Due to its high limonene content, Lime provides internal cleansing benefits* and can be diffused to help purify the air. It’s also an effective and natural surface cleaner. Lime is known for its ability to uplift, balance, and energize. Lime is frequently used in facial and body cleansers for its purifying properties and uplifting scent.
