Turkey Rub with Essential Oils

Thanksgiving wouldn’t be the same without a turkey. We’ve come up with this delicious turkey rub recipe so you can benefit from the wonderful properties and flavors of essential oils this Thanksgiving.

Turkey Rub with Essential Oils

Time: 5 minutes | Difficulty: Easy

Ingredients & Supplies:

  • 2–4 Tbsp. (25–50 g) brown sugar or organic cane sugar (optional)
  • 4 Tbsp. (57 g) butter, softened
  • 1 tsp. (4 g) kosher salt or Himalayan sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp. (1.5 g) garlic powder
  • 2–3 drops cassia essential oil
  • 3–5 drops rosemary essential oil
  • 3–5 drops thyme essential oil
  • 2–3 drops black pepper essential oil
  • 1 toothpick–1 drop ginger essential oil

Instructions:

  1. Add all ingredients to a glass bowl. Mix together using a hand mixer or fork.
  2. Rub onto the turkey (and inside the turkey) prior to cooking for a more subtle flavor or after cooking for stronger flavor (use a spoon or pastry brush to spread it around if the turkey is hot).

Note: If you are rubbing it onto an uncooked turkey, use the maximum number of essential oil drops. If you are rubbing it on a cooked turkey, use fewer essential oil drops unless you want a strong flavor.

Although you can use this turkey rub recipe no matter how you cook your turkey, we tested it on a frozen turkey breast that we cooked in an electric pressure cooker. It turned out delicious, so we want to share this recipe with you as well.

Pressure-Cooked Essential Oil Turkey Breast

Servings: 6–8 | Time: 15 minutes active; 1 1/2 hours inactive | Difficulty: Easy

Ingredients & Supplies:

  • 3.5 lbs. (1.5 kg) frozen turkey breast
  • Essential Oil Turkey Rub (recipe above..use the max number of essential oil drops)
  • 2 Tbsp. (28 g) butter (can take some from the turkey rub)
  • 1 apple, cut into large chunks
  • 1/2 onion, quartered
  • 1/2 tsp. (1 g) allspice berries
  • 2 stalks celery (optional)
  • 2 1/2 cups (600 ml) chicken broth
  • 1 tsp. (4 g) kosher salt or Himalayan sea salt
  • Fresh sage leaves (optional)

Instructions:

  1. Using your hand, spread the Essential Oil Turkey Rub over the entire turkey breast.
  2. In the pressure cooker, sauté the butter, apple, onion, allspice berries,
    and celery until the onion is translucent. Add the chicken broth to the pressure cooker.
  3. Place a trivet in the pressure cooker on top of the apple/onion mixture. Place the frozen turkey breast on the trivet. Sprinkle salt over turkey and lay sage leaves on top, if desired.
  4. Lock and seal the lid. Cook on high pressure for 45–50 minutes, and let the pressure release naturally before opening the lid.
  5. If you want the skin crispy, place the turkey breast along with some of the broth in a baking dish or roasting pan, and broil for 5 minutes or until golden brown.
  6. Allow to cool for 10 minutes before slicing.

Extra Ideas:

  • The juices make a delicious turkey gravy! Use a slotted spoon to scoop out the apple/onion mixture. Melt 4 Tbsp. (57 g) butter in a saucepan. Whisk in 1/4 cup (30 g) flour. Let cook for a couple minutes, then slowly add the turkey broth while continuing to whisk. Keep stirring for a couple more minutes until the gravy thickens.
  • If turkey is not frozen, cook on high pressure for 25–30 minutes with a natural pressure release.
