Aromatherapy and Cravings

Summer is here and we are all trying to fit back into our swimming suits and shorts that are just a bit tighter than last year.

We have three essential oils that can really help get you back into the swing of things during the summer months.

Stress plays a big part when it comes to how much we eat. When we are stressed, we are more likely to have cravings for quick, unhealthy food.

Did you know that aromatherapy can help uplift and boost your mood? Next time you get a hankering for a bag of chips or a bar of chocolate, think about diffusing or simply smelling these essential oils. These three essential oils can help boost your mood and help you feel energized without having to grab that afternoon snack.

Grapefruit Essential Oil

Grapefruit Essential Oil by Airomé

Grapefruit has been known as the “forbidden fruit” of Barbados. It has an energizing, invigorating aroma that helps to encourage and uplift the mind. The aroma is citrusy and crisp. You can also diffuse it when needing support during monthly cycles or later-in-life changes.

Grapefruit Essential Oil blends well with lavender, peppermint, ylang-ylang, lemon, and orange essential oils.

Cinnamon Essential Oil

Cinnamon Essential Oil helps create a warm and comforting environment when diffused. When diffused, it has been known to help aid in digestion which can help alleviate tummy discomfort.

Cinnamon Essential Oil blends well with clove, ginger, orange, and peppermint essential oils.

Peppermint Essential Oil

Peppermint Essential Oil is cooling and refreshing. This strong, minty, and sweet aroma helps to boost focus, clarity, and energy. This aroma uplifts your mood which can help you curb those cravings.

At the end of the day when those hunger pains hit, fill your diffuser with distilled water and diffuse cinnamon, grapefruit, or peppermint, and take long, deep breaths.

How to best use essential oils:

Essential oils are best used as aromatics or applied to the skin with our already diluted essential oil roll-ons. Essential oils can be toxic if swallowed, even if they are pure and organic. If you have sensitive skin, do a skin patch test before using our essential oil roll-ons.
