Ditch Sugar Cravings With Peppermint Essential Oil
"By sweetening with sugar, as an essay in The New York Times observed in 1884, “we can give a false palatableness to even the most indigestible rubbish."
- Gary Taubes, The Case Against Sugar
Hello friend!
Sugar, on its own, is not inherently bad, and in fact, it can be quite functional in foods! It adds the sweetness of course, but can also serve as a natural preservative in foods like jams and jellies.
The real problem isn't the sugar itself, it's that we eat too much of it. Westerners tend to have a sweet tooth, and it's likely contributing to health problems, such as obesity, diabetes, and cardiovascular disease.

While some people choose to go zero-sugar in an attempt to reduce their sugar consumption, many experts recommend a less drastic approach. Reading labels, making mindful choices, and choosing when and where you will consume sugary foods and drinks may have longer-lasting results when it comes to your overall health.

KICK THE SUGAR WITH ESSENTIAL OILS: PEPPERMINT
Not only does peppermint oil boost energy levels (hello improved workouts!) it can also help soothe sore muscles and minimize recovery time, which will help you get back to working out sooner.

Research published in the Journal of the International Society of Sports Nutrition found that ingesting peppermint oil before a workout enhanced exercise performance in male athletes by relaxing the bronchial smooth muscles and increasing the ventilation and brain oxygen concentrations. That's just a fancy way of saying that peppermint oil made it easier to power through intense exercise without getting out of breath.
Peppermint also reduces hunger cravings and can help you to feel full faster.

Ditch Sugar Cravings With Cinnamon Bark Essential Oil

"Sugar does induce the same responses in the region of the brain known as the “reward center”—technically, the nucleus accumbens—as do nicotine, cocaine, heroin, and alcohol."
- Gary Taubes, The Case Against Sugar
Hello friend!
When do you crave sugar?  During an afternoon slump?  Dessert after a great meal?  Late-night binging? If you answer yes to any (or all!) of these, you're not alone.

Sugar has become ingrained in our diet. The sweet stuff is a ubiquitous source of calories in the Western diet, even though experts agree that sugar is a major contributor to many major diseases.

In fact, it's the daily consumption of sugar that is literally destroying our health. Dr. Alan Greene, a pediatrician who sits on the board of the Institute for Responsible Nutrition, says sugar-sweetened beverages, along with cakes, cookies, and ice cream, are some of the major offenders, but hidden sources of added sugars are also a concern. He states, “What happens is that Americans are having dessert several times a day and don’t know it."

Reducing sugar can be tricky, as they're more than fifty ingredient names that are code for "sugar".


As you work to reduce or eliminate sugar from your diet, be sure to check for these hidden sugars!

KICK THE SUGAR WITH ESSENTIAL OILS: CINNAMON BARK
Cinnamon was used throughout history to help balance blood sugar levels. In recent times it's been found to help alleviate sugar cravings as well.

When your blood sugar levels are unstable, you may find yourself overeating and gaining weight. Combine this with the fact that when your energy levels are low it's difficult to exercise and burn calories, and you wind up with some extra stubborn weight.

Using cinnamon oil can help you overcome these issues that are standing in your way! Check out this study on the effects of cinnamon on glucose levels!

Ditch Sugar Cravings With Dill Essential Oil.

"Rats given sweetened water in experiments find it significantly more pleasurable than cocaine, even when they’re addicted to the latter, and more than heroin as well."
Gary Taubes, The Case Against Sugar
Hello friend!

Many adults eat much more sugar than necessary, so reducing added sugar intake is a healthful idea for most people. Some people may wish to take it a step further and cut sugar out of their diet entirely.
The National Institutes of Health (NIH) estimates that adults in the United States get about 15% of their calories from added sugars alone. This sugar intake does not even include natural sugars, such as those in products such as fruit and milk.
Excessive sugar consumption has links to several harmful health conditions, including:
  • obesity and metabolic syndrome
  • heart disease
  • type 2 diabetes
  • high blood pressure
  • high cholesterol
  • chronic inflammation
  • nonalcoholic fatty liver disease
  • dental plaque and cavities
Reducing the amount of sugar in the diet can help a person reduce their risk of these health conditions.

KICK THE SUGAR WITH ESSENTIAL OILS: DILL 
Dill is a powerful essential oil for feeling “full” after a meal. The problem with sugars and carbs is that they make us feel more full compared to, say, a kale salad. Dill makes your healthy meals and snacks feel more satisfying because it stimulates the brain's satiety center!
