Essential Oils for Weight Loss and Appetite Suppression

Essential Oils for Weight Loss and Appetite SuppressionEssential oils are well-known as weight loss enhancers. You probably know about the “skinny bath,” or how cellulite can be reduced with the application of oils. But did you know that weight loss and appetite can be emotionally connected?

Eating can be a very emotional experience, and sometimes it is easy to eat for emotional reasons. Anxiety and depression can be “comforted” by food, and if food is used as comfort, over and over again, then naturally, this can become habitual and a cause of weight gain.

How Essential Oils Help

The role of essential oils in the support of appetite control is to soothe, comfort and clear the mind, and allow for an inner calm to take place, in order to choose abstinence instead of indulgence.

You can suppress cravings, ease and eliminate stress and anxiety (both really mess with appetite!), as well as balance and increase metabolism, minimize fluid retention, lower cholesterol, help with digestion, and release toxins.

We’ve blended together some of these oils to create a powerful, fat-blasting combination designed to not only help with physical weight loss, but the emotional baggage that provokes it.

Weight Loss Essential Oil Blend Roll On contains:

Lemon: Clears the mind, boosts metabolism, detoxifies, and dissolves fat

Pink Grapefruit: Energizes and detoxifies, dissolves fat

Peppermint: Vitalizes and energizes, reduces appetite, and curbs cravings

This is available in a convenient roll on form that can be applied directly to the body.

Emotional Freedom Technique- Tapping can also be used to help with cravings. By tapping acupressure points on your body with clearing statements, as well as the appetite suppressing scents of oils, you can really combat troublesome weight in a powerful way.

Citrus Scent Potpourri with Essential Oils

Citrus Scent Potpourri with Essential OilsThe history of potpourri goes back to the 12th century, for the purpose of freshening the rooms in castles.

It’s understandable that those who lived in a castle would want to get rid of damp, moldy, and stale odors!

Although people made potpourri at that time, they didn’t have the amazingly aromatic essential oils that we do now (or citrus fruit, for that matter) to make this refreshing citrus scent potpourri with essential oils!

The following DIY citrus scent potpourri with essential oils recipe would have been perfect to transform the stale scent of a castle!

Making your own potpourri is a terrific way to reconnect with nature because you’re collecting the materials yourself. You’re also creating something that’s one-of-a-kind that gives a glimpse of the inner you.

Furthermore, homemade citrus scent potpourri with essential oils makes a thoughtful gift to brighten someone’s day. Package it in a clear bag and adorn with a pretty bow and your own personalized tag or label!

Citrus Scent Potpourri with Essential Oils

To make your own potpourri using essential oils, collect dried leaves, flowers and small wood shavings. Next, crush these plant materials to the desired size. Then, place 1/2 cup of plant material in a widemouthed glass jar and add the following essential oils:

Stir the contents well and tighten the lid on the jar. Let the potpourri sit for several days to allow the aroma molecules to be absorbed by the plant material.

Finally, pour the contents into a decorative bowl or other open container and place it strategically where everyone can visually and aromatically enjoy its beauty!

Natural Room Disinfectant Spray with Essential Oils

Natural Room Disinfectant Spray with Essential OilsMost commercial “room fresheners” are aerosol sprays that contain a sea of unnecessary toxic chemicals that have been proven to be “neurotoxins,” meaning they are basically poisons that act on the nervous system.

These neurotoxins can cause dizziness nausea, loss of motor control, paralysis, difficulty with vision, seizures and, to the extreme, even coma or death.

Don’t expose yourself and your family to these poisons! Instead, make your own simple, safe, and effective DIY spray that also costs a fraction of those commercial cans of poison!

Natural Room Disinfectant Spray with Essential Oils

Simply get a spray bottle (you can often find them at the dollar store!) and fill it with pure water. Next, add the required amounts of each essential oil, as per the recipe, above.

Close the bottle tight and gently shake. You’ll be able to smell the aromatic blend right away, but the scent will become stronger over time. Within a day after making this recipe, you will already notice the stronger smell.

Lavender essential oil is antibacterial.* Cinnamon Bark essential oil is known for its antibacterial, antifungal, antimicrobial, and astringent properties.* And finally, Allspice has an antiseptic property that inhibits bacterial growth.*

This natural room disinfectant spray with essential oils is made from oils that have amazing aromas on their own, but are even more pleasing to your sense of smell when blended. So you can see this DIY spray is truly a room disinfectant that is safe, and smells good, too!
