If you have been following Utah Sweet Savings for any length of time you know how much I LOVE essential oils. I have been using oils for years and they literally have changed my life. I use them all the time. Just a few days ago I burned my hand pretty bad. I grabbed my lavender oil and treated my burn. It not only helped lessen the pain, the burn never really blistered or got really bad. I credit the lavender.
Since I am a huge essential oil fan, I was thrilled when I was contacted by My Natural Family to review some doTERRA Essential Oils. I have used some of their oils in the past and have been very happy with them.
This month I was sent Slim & Sassy. I was super excited to try this oil. While I am a huge fan of oils and I have been losing weight, I’ve never tried to add oils into my weight loss plan. Frankly, I’m not sure why I never thought of it before.
Slim & Sassy is a blend of 5 essential oils. Grapefruit, Lemon, Peppermint, Ginger, and Cinnamon. It is recommended that you add 8 drops of oil to 16 oz of water and drink one hour before a meal.
I am constantly trying to figure out a great way to drink more water. It is something that I have really struggled with, so I wasn’t sure how I would do with adding the Slim & Sassy. Now, here is where I have to add a disclaimer. I was already adding lemon oil to my water so I am used to having some essential oil in my water. Having said that, I LOVE the Slim & Sassy in my water. I think the taste (while a little stronger than I was used to with just the lemon) is refreshing and quite good.
I feel like it helps with any cravings that I might be having. I always want something sweet after I eat (even after a year of no sugar) and this really helps out. It takes that need for a little something away. I love that.
Now, like I said, it is a little strong. I drink it in a cup with a straw. If you aren’t used to having any oils in your water it might take a little while to get used to. But I felt like it really did help. I am going to continue to add Slim & Sassy to my water and have it be part of my weight loss program from now on.
Hey, it can’t hurt. I was really good about taking it this last week and lost another 2 pounds! Sweet!
