Essential Oils and Weight Loss Answer: Slim & Sassy

Posted on January 28, 2012 | In Essential Oils

Written by Becki Andrus

Can essential oils help with weight loss? Definitely! Certain essential oils can be beneficial for weight loss because they can help to control your appetite, boost your metabolism, and minimize your desire to eat excess calories.

A big benefit to using essential oils to help with weight loss is the fact that weight gain and over-eating is often closely related to emotional issues… and the high frequency of quality essential oils can help to balance the mood and reduce the emotional aspects that make you want to over-eat. So, using essential oils can help you get to the ROOT of a weight loss issue (i.e. emotional eating), instead of simply treating a symptom (i.e. eating too much chocolate).

I have such a sweet tooth, and I have found a lot of benefit by using essential oils to get rid of my sugar cravings. If I am using specific essential oils on a regular basis, then I am more successful at avoiding the chocolate and other sweet treats.

My favorite oil blend for metabolic benefits is called Slim & Sassy, because it helps to calm the stomach, enhance your mood, and manage hunger. When combined with good eating and exercise habits, it can be a powerful approach to weight loss. And the great thing is that the blend may help to improve success with workouts since the oils can boost energy! Sometimes I use this oil blend specifically for the energy boost that it can give me.

Hi Becky, I recently started with slim and sassy, about a month now, and I drip four to five drops on my tongue and swallow a glass of water. Is this any less useful than putting it in water and sipping on it? Also how much of this should I take a day? Can I over do it? Thanks for your answers, Stacy

Hi Stacy, that’s awesome to hear that you have been using Slim and Sassy! I don’t think it matters whether you put the oil directly in your mouth or in the water… the main thing is to be sure that it is getting into your body. I try to use it several times a day, and recommendations that I have heard range anywhere from 3-5 times per day.

doTERRA put together some handouts about the Slim & Sassy weight loss plan, hopefully these will be helpful to you:

What do you recommend for applying S & S to problems areas of the skin? Mix with Grapefruit and coconut oil? How many drops S & S and Grapefruit per Tbs of oil? Thanks!
