Best of all?

With just 5 ingredients, you’ll make these all summer long.

If you don’t have lime essential oil, you can substitute it for regular lime extract. Or, if you’re feeling extra creative, try making a homemade orange infused chocolate custard. Just add cocoa powder and Young Living’s Orange Vitality Essential Oil instead of lime extract.
