We have used a formulation of oils thought to be most effective in inhibiting the desire to eat:
Peppermint: Is a digestive aid that soothes an upset stomach and helps with digestive problems. It is thought to be a strong appetite controller.
Pink Grapefruit: A natural weight loss appetite suppressant through a process called lipolysis dissolves fat. The limonene in grapefruit essential oil helps release fatty acids in the bloodstream where the body breaks them down and uses them for energy. Like peppermint, grapefruit essential oil is a strong appetite suppressant. Pink grapefruit is particularly effective in lessening appetite.
Bergamot: Stimulates your endocrine system and produces a sense of calm and well being and alleviates stress. Bergamot has strong sedative properties that make it an excellent essential oil for fighting stress and stress triggered eating.
Lavender: Combined with bergamot enhances this calming effect.
Orange: Helps overcome depression and gives emotional support.
Ylang Ylang: Used to clarify thoughts and assist in a feeling of wellness and calm.
The Smell and Taste Treatment and Research Institute of Chicago found that by inhaling an aroma throughout the day, you can inhibit the desire to eat. Dr. Alan Hirsch of the The Smell and Taste Treatment and Research Institute of Chicago says that we feel full because of a special mechanism in our brain. His study found that inhaling peppermint and other essential oils specific to appetite control and cravings, can directly affect the brain’s satiety center, the ventro-medial nucleus of the hypothalamus.
