Kill Sugar Cravings with Essential Oils

Imagine if you can kill a craving in 3 mins flat!

In fact yesterday after this interview I had a sugar craving; I walked to my cupboard and opened it up looking to see what I have in there to feed it…and then out of the side of my eye I see my lemon essential oil.

Believe me when I say this that I sooo wanted the chocolate that is hidden at the top of my cupboard BUT  I thought well let’s see if Dr Mariza is right and lemon essential oil can cure my sugar craving.

So I placed a drop on my tongue, closed the cupboard door and walked off.

Only now writing this did I realise Holly sh*t it worked…even better I totally forgot I wanted the chocolate. No mental battle…NOTHING! 

Even though I have used essential oils for many years but not to cure a sugar cravings.

I noticed that there has been a big BUZZ around essential oils lately; so I decided to bring Dr Marzia Synders on the show today to give us the lowdown on essential oils (she shares some crazy mind blowing stuff!!!!)

Today we lift the lid on the  whole essential oils world; how they work, why they work.

I stumbled across essential oils 17 years ago; I had the weakest lungs, I continually suffered from asthma with continual bouts of bronchitis a couple of times a year. I was introduced to the powers of peppermint oil and since that day I never used an asthma spray or had bronchitis ever again….NEVER!

Dr Mariza Synders  shares how our stress hormones are linked to our sugar cravings and how we can vanish them in under 3 mins flat simply by sniffing a peppermint or lemon oil.

Essential oils are powerful organic constitutes that speak directly to our molecules, hence the positive immediate impact & effects. 

This Woman is phenomenal to listen to you’re going to LOVE LOVE LOVE her!

Check out what we cover in today interview:

  • Craving are from one of three things: Stress, Fatigue or an emotional concern. 
  • How cortisol dictates EVERYTHING….thyroid, liver, muscles, mood
    How to break up with sugar…its starts with breaking up with stress. 
  • Women trying to be everything to everyone; and why our adrenals are getting out of whack.
  • Dr Mariza shares the clutch the pearls moments
  • The importance of the role of essential oils on our limbic system and hypothalamus  

Dr Mariza shares three out of this world recipes for Essential Oils:

The stress busting essential oils blend

Bergamot, Lavender, vanilla, Wild orange  (they literally break up the stress response IMMEDIATELY!)  

NOTE: Below are for a size of a 10Mil roller bottle mix with an oil – grape seed oil; coconut oil, Macadamia oil – some quality carrier oil not a cheap and nasty canola or sunflower seed etc.

Ep#29 – Cellulite… Go away!

Cellulite.

Women would practically spend anything to get rid of it.

and don’t the big brands know it too!

They try to claim they have the next ‘miracle cream’ that will be your solution to diminishing it for good.

But do they work?

😞 …Hmmmmmm?

Today I talk about Cellulite, what it is, why women get it more than men and proven ways to help reduce it significantly.

It sucks when you have it as you are embarrassed when it’s time to be in your swimwear,
hate being in the retail change room as those lights make it look even worse. You practically walk out of well-lit changerooms feeling depressed swearing that you’ll go on a diet tomorrow.

You‘re not alone!

90% of women suffer from cellulite.

…from the thinnest to the other most overweight.

I’m not promising you any astonishing results on this interview, just more of an understanding to help support you in your journey of wellness.

Here’s to hope xx
