There are several essential oils that are very good at managing hunger cravings, reducing your urge for sweets, and managing a healthy weight. You’ll experience a delightful feeling of energy from inhaling any of these oils.
Cinnamon, peppermint, lemon, sandalwood, fennel, and frankincense can all be inhaled directly from the bottle to stem cravings and reduce appetite. You can also put a few drops into your diffuser and let them work for you all day. You can add a drop to some oil in your hand to dab on wrists and temples, even under your nose. Many essential oils, though not all, are safe for use on the skin. This guide provides further insight into the benefits of using essential oils on your skin.
Improve Your Smile
Make your smile even nicer by using essential oils when you brush your teeth and rinse your mouth. Orange and clove promote healing, promote a healthy anti-inflammatory response, and can help with tooth pain. If you have sensitive teeth, you can mix a drop of orange and clove with a little oil in your hand and then rub on affected teeth and gums. Cinnamon protects against environmental threats that cause bad breath.
You can add a drop or two on your brush with your toothpaste or to a glass of water to rinse your mouth. This source suggests that in addition to improved oral hygiene, the use of essential oils for topical application as part of a mouth rinse can support healthy oral immune function and improve tissue health.
Several essential oils can help you look younger. This source explains that a few are geranium, frankincense, sandalwood, and rose. Geranium can help tighten the skin. Frankincense and rose are good together and can smooth skin and reduce fine lines and wrinkles. If you have dry skin, you can add sandalwood, which will help your skin retain moisture and give you a dewy look. You can add two drops of essential oil to one teaspoon of your regular face cream or lotion.
The bonus in all of these tips is that the scents will keep you enveloped in good smells all day. You won’t mind cutting out some snacks because you’ll get something rewarding in trade. Your mouth will feel fresh and invigorating and your skin will look better than ever.
