Shape Up Series: Kick Hunger to the Curb with these 4 Essential Oils
Oh my goodness! I’m so excited about my experience with using essential oils, regular exercise (I’m getting better) and completely doable meal planning to release weight. Now I have to say, everyone’s results will vary with whatever program you use, so please don’t take this as medical or nutritional advice. All I simply want to do is share with you the protocol I have used to curb hunger, balance my energy levels and as a result, I have released several pounds…over 15 pounds in just two weeks in fact. I can’t tell you how much better I’m feeling and more importantly, I’m learning how to use natural and practical, everyday routines to get my body in better shape. Want to see some of the oils I’m using? Here you go…
1. Grapefruit Essential Oil
Citrus essential oils are powerful weapons when it comes to both energy and curbing hunger. Grapefruit essential oil has a refreshing and uplifting aroma and is thought to decrease food cravings. When diffused, grapefruit’s properties include refreshing, uplifting feelings and a triggered sense of fullness. This oil also has added benefits of dissolving fat properties that may help overcome obesity. Like many cold-pressed citrus oils, it is a popular oil to use in conjunction with weight-management programs.[spacer size=”20″]
2. Ocotea Essential Oil
The cinnamon-like scent of Ocotea essential oil gives feelings of fullness and helps control hunger.* Extracted from an Ecuadorian tree, ocotea has the highest level of alpha humulene of any Young Living essential oil. Humulene is a compound that helps aid the body’s natural response to irritation and injury.* Ocotea also has natural cleansing and purifying properties. I alternate 2-3 drops of grapefruit and ocotea essential oils in my water throughout the day.[spacer size=”20″]
3. Slique Essence Essential Oil Blend
The Slique Essence blend is our only essential oil blend to feature the natural, calorie-free sweetness of stevia, plus a refreshing citrus-mint combo of grapefruit, tangerine, lemon, spearmint, and ocotea. Help hydrate the body and silence cravings when you add a few drops to your water. This blend contains a unique combination of grapefruit, tangerine, lemon, spearmint, and ocotea essential oils that uplifts and energizes. It was discovered by founder, Gary Young while working in the Nova Vita Center in Ecuador. Gary witnessed the power of this blend in helping to control hunger and to assist individuals in achieving their individual weight goals.*[spacer size=”20″]
4. Ledum Essential Oil
My research of this oil shows that it is helpful in releasing weight related to past trauma. So I’m using it to help detox as well as help me mentally and emotionally heal my body when it comes to food. Ledum is also believed to harmonize and balance the body’s daily needs.[spacer size=”20″]
And that’s just the 4 oils I’m using. There are more oils that can also help you curb your appetite and/or help you feel full so you don’t over eat including lemon, tangerine (really almost all the citrus oils) as well as Spearmint essential oil. The oils can be added to a glass of water, a few drops at a time or added to your replacement shake or smoothie. You can also diffuse them and inhale them for added benefits.
Using these oils has helped the process of detoxing as well as EMOTIONAL clearing and detoxing. In addition to using the oils, I’m fasting from sugar, bread and any food that will turn to sugar. I’m drinking 8 glasses of Alkaline water with the oils mentioned above. In terms of food, I’m eating fruits, veggies, chicken and fish as well as enzymes with every meal. For gut health, I’m using probiotics as well.
As I mentioned, please do not take this as medical or nutritional advice. I visited a naturopathic and holistic health practitioner who helped me get on track with shaping up, detoxing and emotional release. I had to educate myself on what is right for me and my body, and I encourage you to do the same.
I’ll keep you posted as I discover more. What a great way to start a new year! Talk about freedom!
