In the past, I've always made pinwheels (or "tortilla roll-ups" as my husband calls them) with a spicy Mexican twist. But, a few weeks ago, I hosted an essential oils class at my home and wanted to create a pinwheel that I could use my Oregano oil in {cooking with essential oils...another fun way to use them!}. I had a jar of pesto in the pantry, so it was kind of a "bada bing, bada boom" situation. I think I love these even more than my old pinwheels, y'all. They were addictive.

I like to use the larger burrito-sized tortillas for these. And they make a bunch...perfect for a crowd. I always make them the night before, too...roll them up and wrap them. Then refrigerate overnight and slice the day of the event.  And I love to garnish with olives to add a little bit of color contrast. ;)


Pesto Pinwheels

Ingredients:
  • 6 burrito-sized flour or wheat tortillas

Oregano is a very powerful and strong essential oil, so only one drop is needed. Besides cooking with Oregano, I also use it on my family's feet for its amazing wellness properties. It's a great addition to our family's health needs. Oregano is one of those oils I'll never be without. Powerhouse oil, indeed!

So delicious and perfect for entertaining!
They will all disappear. ;)

If you'd like to chat more about essential oils, I'd love to visit. My family has been oily for nearly a year. Young Living Essential Oils have changed our lives in ways I can't even begin to describe. I'm apart of an amazing support team, as well. We are very strong believers in oil education and we work together to learn more all the time. If you decide to try essential oils, you never have to "sell oils" or anything like that. Some of us just do that to get the cost of our own oils covered...and then some!
