Quit Smoking with Essential Oils

4 (80%) 25 votes

Here is a simple Quit Smoking Mixture that actually works.


Mix equal parts of lemon Essential Oil, black pepper essential Oil, and eucalyptus essential oil.

Do NOT use Fragrance oils, they are NOT the same thing.

Whenever you have the urge to smoke, Apply oil to skin under nose (in a carrier oil) or to a cotton ball (neat) and inhale with several deep breaths & the urge will quickly dissipate.

Unsure what equal parts means? 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 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.
