The serving sizes are basic estimates based upon the servings my husband and I use to reach fullness and satiety when eating this recipe. Please remember to honor your hunger and fullness by eating more when you are hungry and stopping when you are satisfied.
Please, only use doTERRA essential oils internally because they are the only essential oil company with Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade (CPTG) quality!
