I love these Lime Cupcakes with Essential Oils and I hope that you will, too!Lime Cupcakes with essential Oils
This recipe makes approximately 20 cupcakes
1 box of yellow cake mix
3 eggs
1 cup water
1/3 cup oil
5 drops Young Living Lime Essential Oil
zest from one lime
3 oz. softened cream cheese
1/2 cup softened butter (to soften: Microwave in standing position for 10 seconds, flip & heat for 10 more seconds) 
6 cups powdered sugar
3 drops Young Living Lime Essential Oil
3 Tablespoons milk (any kind)St. Patrick's Day cupcakes
Making the Cupcakes:
Line cupcake pan with liners while preheating the oven to 350.
In a large bowl, mix all ingredients together on low for 30 seconds (be sure to scrape the bowl).  Move the speed to medium and mix for 2 minutes.
Fill each cupcake liner until it is halfway full.  Bake for 18 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
Cool for 5 minutes in pan, transfer to wire rack and let them cool completely before icing.
Making the Frosting:
Cream cream cheese and butter until smooth.
Add lime oil and milk.  Add powdered sugar.   Beat on low for 30 seconds.   Move to medium for two minutes or until fluffy.You can even top them with a little sugar (or if you want more or a Margherita taste, sprinkle them with a tiny bit of Margherita salt)After they are frosted, be sure to store them in the refrigerator.

Ps- If you want to order oils, you can sign up here:
(Think of it as a membership to Sams Club or Cosco.   When you become a member, you now get a discount while others pay the full price.  Plus, when you share your referral link with someone, you get credit for what they buy.  You don’t need to buy every month.  Just spend $50 a year to stay in the program.  I buy every month, so I am in their special Essential Rewards Program, where I get even more credit back).
If you want to sign up, Head over to the Young Living page here and fill out your information.
Be sure the “Wholesale Member”option is checked so that you don’t end up paying retail prices.

  • Be sure the “sponsor ID” and “enroller id” say 2249011 (so that I can send you your freebies!)
  •  If you do not feel comfortable putting in your social security number (this is only for tax purposes if you decide to turn this into a business) then you can get an EIN from the IRS in just a few seconds here (I have one) and use that number instead (the IRS just needs to be able to connect some number with you for tax purposes).   They need a Social Security Number or an EIN because if you make $600 or more per year selling Young Living products, you will receive a 1099 form in the mail (which is required by law). Young Living will never share this info with anyone. (Ps- yes, its possible.  I made around $150 in my first month and I never tried to ‘sell” it to anyone!  I just shared what I am doing with friends- like peppermint oil in a diffuser for our daughter’s stuffy nose and how it worked wonders, etc…)
  • Select which starter kit you want to get. My recommendation would be the Premium Starter Kit (and that’s the one where you get all of the freebies!) Those are the oils that I use almost every single day! You can get the kit that’s $150, or you can get a kit for $160 with an even nicer essential oil diffuser!Skip step 3 & go ahead with the checkout process.

    After you sign up, send me an email to letting me know that you signed up through this promotion.  Somewhere in the email, be sure to put the promotion code:  BOTS  (You can just put this in the subject.  Just write “New signup with BOTS”

    IMPORTANT:  This promotion is only available when you sign up with the sponsor ID and enroller ID as #2249011!
