Looking for that fresh kaffir lime aroma that will take you back to Thailand? Missing the unique taste of fresh lemon grass? Fed up with tasteless dry leaves in your food? Thai Food Essentials has an idea for you: Cooking with essential oils, extracted from fresh Thai herbs. This revolutionary concept was motivated by the need to find a solution for chefs, cooks and Thai food lovers outside south east Asia, who want to achieve an authentic taste with the smallest hassle possible. Our homemade essential oils retain all the goodness of the herb, and are the closest thing to the real thing.
Our flag product is Kaffir lime leaf essential oil, steam-distilled from carefully selected fresh leaves.
Kaffir Lime leaves play an essential part in some of the most famous Thai dishes, like Tom Yam (spicy sour soup), green curry, Paneng curry (red curry with peanuts), Tom Kaa (coconut milk and galangal soup), Tod Man Pla (fried fish cakes), Hor Mok (steamed curry) and many more. It can also be used (in non-Thai dishes) for pastries, soups, salads, stews, deserts and drinks.
Our newest product is lemon grass oil, steam distilled from fresh and juicy stalks. This oil can be used for salads, curries, stir fried dishes, deserts or drinks. Click here to buy it.
In Thai cooking, both kaffir lime leaves and lemon grass stalks are usually not eaten, and are used for their aroma only. Our essential oils produce that exact aroma.
