Smoking is an expensive, health-consuming habit that can be hard to break. Here is a simple way to quit smoking with essential oils that actually works.
How to Quit Smoking with Essential Oils
Do NOT use fragrance oils, they are NOT the same thing.
Whenever you have the urge to smoke, apply oil to skin under the nose (in a carrier oil) or to a cotton ball (neat) and inhale with several deep breaths, and the urge to smoke will quickly dissipate.
How Much is “Equal Parts”
Unsure what equal parts mean? It means that you apply the same (equal) amount of each oil, so if you want a single dose apply 2 drops of each oil to a cotton ball. If you want to mix a larger amount to have it made ahead, combine 5mL of EACH oil into a 15mL bottle.
Then use a couple of drops as needed.
This is a simple, yet effective remedy.
You can get the essential oils via the links above on Amazon or at a natural food store.
Where to Purchase Essential Oils
Combine equal amounts of Black Pepper Essential Oil & Angelica Essential Oil to a cotton ball and inhale gently when the urge to smoke overtakes you. In case you are wondering whether this has been tested, it has. The efficacy of this treatment has been proven to reduce the level of nicotine craving and delay the desire for tobacco.
