The Zest Zone releases its Culinary Essential Oil Kit for Pride, with proceeds benefiting the LGBT Community Center, New York.
Former award-winning Innkeepers turned Essential Oil Educators and Founders of The Zest Zone, a St Petersburg, FL-based Aromatherapy Start-up, Allison Baldwin and Ilene Mitnick have curated a Taste the Rainbow Culinary Essential Oil Kit which will launch during Pride month with sales proceeds benefiting The Center, the heart and home of NYC’s LGBTQ+ community.
During Pride Month (June 1 – June 30), for every Taste the Rainbow Culinary Essential Oil Kit purchased, Baldwin and Mitnick are donating 20% of sales directly to The Center. Baldwin and Mitnick decided to raise cash to help the world move forward in equity and inclusion. “A lot has stopped since 2020, but the need to do good hasn’t,” says Mitnick. “Allison and I looked deep inside and to the world around us and realized there was still a fight to be fought.”
“Although we live in St Petersburg, FL, a city that supports and celebrates the culture and advancement of the LGBTQ Community,” says Baldwin, “we wanted to extend the net and open our arms — and our pocketbooks — to NYC, a home of LGBTQ+ history and culture commencing at the Stonewall Inn over 50 years ago.”
Baldwin and Mitnick are marrying their passion for creating in the kitchen with what they’re calling a fun, fabulous, foodie fundraiser. Every day, they share the purest essential oils on the planet with those who want to up-level their health and their kitchen creations. To coincide with national Pride celebrations, the Taste the Rainbow Culinary Essential Oil Kit with 22 oils (about 5000 drops) is a reminder to “eat and drink boldly and beautifully.” Both women often say in unison, “These oils will change your kitchen forever.” Mitnick says, “Cooking and cocktail-ing or mock-tailing with these high-quality-flavor-power-tools is like having an International Farmers Market right in your own kitchen.” If you’re up for playing with “your inner alchemist,” these oils are for you, says Baldwin.
Using dōTERRA oils exclusively, these CPTG Certified Pure Tested Grade® essential oils will have chefs and home cooks, at all levels, confidently boosting their imaginations as they take everyday fare to a brand new level. “The oils are extremely concentrated (50 to 70 times stronger than their herb/fruit counterpart), so the taste and flavor profile is remarkably impressive,” says Baldwin. The oils come from plants grown and harvested indigenously ensuring the best possible soil chemistry resulting in the most potent flavor and benefits. “They don’t buy farms, they build farmers,” she says. “We love being affiliated with a give-back-huge-hearted company.”
Anyone who purchases a Taste the Rainbow Culinary Kit will receive: a free virtual Intro to Cooking with Essential Oils class co-hosted by Food Network Chef Michele Ragussis; private kitchen coaching sessions with Baldwin and Mitnick; an e-book with accompanying recipes; and, VIP invites to private social media sites where they share their passion for cooking, eating, entertaining, drink-making and everything in between.
