Last week I shared the healthy skin benefits of grapefruit essential oil which tone, firm and rejuvenate the appearance of our skin. This week I will share how this remarkable essential oil can help you get “summer slender” and feel great getting there!
Grapefruit essential oil is bright and crisp which energizes and uplifts your spirit. Grapefruit essential oil positively affects the mind and mood. It encourages feelings of hope and inspiration. Pink Grapefruit is also known to help reduce “head hunger.”
“Head hunger” is the hungry feeling we get when we are not “tummy” hungry. It is sometimes tied to emotional eating or snacking by habit. You may have experienced walking into a movie theater and immediately needing popcorn, that is head hunger! Or walking by a bakery and starting to crave that fresh doughnut. Or sitting down to watch your favorite television show and having that gnawing feeling in your gut that you NEED a snack. Those feelings are “head hunger!”
June’s exclusive Slender Herbal Support Blend helps fight and curb head hunger! It uses the positive aroma of grapefruit essential oil to curb and control those feelings that lead us to eating what we don’t need. It lessens the feelings and diminishes the cravings! With the cravings gone, we will say “no” to the snacks and impulse eating and naturally reduce calorie intake.
Slender will also help with portion control and saying “no” to sweet desserts. For support with appetite control, 30 - 60 minutes prior to eating, spritz neck and wrists with Slender Spray. Enjoy the uplifting aroma as it helps to curb hunger and support portion control.
Another positive benefit of using Slender is the boost in energized feelings. Grapefruit essential oil stimulates the brain’s activity giving it new thoughts as well as stimulating the endocrine glands. This creates a balance of hormones and enzymes promoting proper metabolism. The balance in metabolism promotes proper digestion and encourages physical activity. Activity burns calories! Another win for Slender Spray!
Along with using Slender Spray, it is important to drink plenty of water. Water keeps the body’s systems in balance and fit. A general rule of thumb is the 8 x 8 rule – eight 8-oz glasses of water every day.
It is easy to incorporate Slender and water into a daily routine.
Wake-up drink 8 oz of water
Spritz with Slender Spray after dressing for the day
One hour after breakfast drink 8 oz of water
Half hour before lunch drink 8 oz of water and spritz with Slender Spray
