Chocolate, Frankincense, & Lavender Lovecakes

- By: Safia Ohlson

These cupcakes are pure, edible love. Packed with antioxidants, omegas, and protein, you don’t need to wait for a special occasion to whip up a batch. They’re gluten-free, not too sweet, and make for a pretty great quickie breakfast or afternoon pick-me-up. The addition of some of our favorite 100% organic Essential Oils enhances the depth, complexity, and richness of the chocolate without overpowering it.

Frankincense has been used in both ceremony and medicine for thousands of years. It contains more than 200 molecular compounds, giving it a complex, earthy, and deep fragrance. It has an uplifting effect on emotions and promotes spiritual connection.

Lavender is a potent healing agent. It is calming, relaxing, clarifying, and stimulating for the mind, and soothing, purifying, and cooling for the body. Our Lavender Essential Oil has a rich, heady, smooth, sweet, and floral fragrance.

  • *Internal use of Essential Oils for therapeutic purposes should only occur under the close supervision of a certified aromatherapist. That said, Pangea's Essential Oils are 100% organic and food-grade. Using Pangea Essential Oils sparingly in appropriate cooking and baking recipes can be delightful and perfectly safe. These Oils are highly concentrated, and typically only a drop or two is required to achieve the desired effect.
