Essential Oils for Weight Loss

 What are essential oils?

 Essential oils are the aromatic, volatile liquids found in plants that are usually extracted through steam distillation. They are found in
shrubs, flowers, trees, roots, bushes, and seeds. Plants not only help maintain the ecological balance of the planet, they help
maintain our ecological balance as well. Plants have been used by humans throughout history and are intimately connected to our
physical, emotional, energetic, and spiritual well-being. They work at a cellular level and are said to purify and mend cells, and
improve the action of cells that are not functioning well in the body. Their wonderful fragrances can also help balance our mood, lift
spirits, dispel negative emotions, and make our minds clear.

How can they help with weight loss?

When we smell essential oils, they can have an immediate positive impact on our mood and appetite. Smell is the only sense
that can have a direct effect on the limbic system of the brain, which is the main center of our emotional life. The fragrances of
the oils can also penetrate the amaygdala, which is a part of the limbic system. Frequent inhalation of these aromas can
reduce appetite. Dr. Alan Hirsch’s landmark studies showed dramatic weight loss in research subjects using peppermint oil
and vanilla absolute to curb food cravings. (Hirsch A.R., Gomez R. “ Inhalation of odorants for weight reduction,” Int. J. Obes.
Vol. 18, Supplement 2, August 1994:79). In addition, the oils boost all systems of the body. When they are used to help
strengthen digestion and elimination, our body functions more effectively and weight loss happens more naturally. Some
of the oils burn fat, some boost metabolism, some balance hormone levels. All of these contribute to weight loss.
