When I first started using essential oils, it was mainly for body scrubs and aromatherapy. Then, I realized I could make my own natural underarm deodorant, which I thought was pretty cool. After I discovered some of them could even be used in baking and cooking, I was pretty excited.

I’ve only made a couple of recipes so far, but they’ve turned out really delicious. This sour cream pound cake is one of them.

Since I’m a huge fan of bundt cakes, {I can’t really explain it, there’s just something about them that draws me in}, I decided to use my favorite bundt pan. The cake was nice and high, moist and had tons of delicious lemony flavor.
