Hello all,

New to the forum but not mead. I have been making mead for about 2 years and am wondering if anyone has ever used essential oils in their mead for aromas or flavor. I have some oil of cocoa that is very nice and thinking about adding it to my traditional batch.

Any thoughts?

Thanks.

Welcome to the forum!

No personal experience, I'll see if I can dig up something for you.

This is all I could find, and it states at the bottom essential oils are not safe additives for your drink...
