Weight Loss and Aromatherapy

Get your own graph at skinnyr

Sigh. This is what happens when you spend a week relaxing at an all-inclusive resort in Mexico! LOL!

The good news is that much of that time was spent reading the amazing “The Big Book of Endurance Training and Racing” (and yes, that’s an affiliate link, so if you purchase the book from there, Amazon gives me a little thank you) and in doing so, I was able to see MANY reasons why my weight is stuck (or, in this case, rising – but that part’s not hard to figure out). This book showed me so many fascinating and incredibly important things about how the body works, and I’m quite excited to begin sharing it all with you over the next several weeks. I have GREAT faith that we will now see a serious downshift in that graph!

Keep reading for an interesting tip I found just before I left for Mexico…

AromatherapySo, you know me, I’m always poking around the web for interesting ways to make your (and my!) weight loss efforts more effective. A short while back my sister sent me this very interesting post about weight loss and aromatherapy, so I decided to do some more research to see what else I could find. Here’s what I learned.

  • The scent of vanilla can reduce your cravings for sweets.
  • Patchouli and bergamot helpt to reduce and regulate your appetite
  • Jasmine (my favourite) and sandalwood can give you a boost of confidence so you can believe in your goals
  • Lemongrass and sage will help you fight off depression that makes you want to eat that tub of ice cream
  • Grapefruit helps in the treatment of eating disorders and obesity, and also acts as a diuretic and digestive aid

The “Optimal Body Weight” site gives some great guidelines for using these, in addition to the guidelines given in the first article I mentioned.

Why not try it out and see what happens? Could be fun!

If you have some questions about aromatherapy and how to use it well and wisely (you do need to be cautious. Just because they’re “natural” doesn’t mean they’re always “safe”. Do your homework) contact my friend Sue through her website at wellnessthroughessentialoils.com and tell her I sent you!
