Trying Slim and Sassy by DoTERRA
One of my dear friends invited me to a DoTERRA party at her house. DoTERRA sells therapeutic-grade essential oils that are meant to treat a wide variety of ailments.
Before this, the only essential oil I'd really used was orange oil in cleaning products. When I was a service rep at Home Depot, we would use an air freshener with it to clear the sticky gunk after removing labels. It had the added bonus of smelling heavenly.
I had heard of their Slim & Sassy mix and decided to support her mom (the rep) by buying a bottle. It contains a blend of grapefruit, cinnamon, lemon, ginger and peppermint oils. You put a few drops in a glass of water and drink it down. They suggest doing this several times a day.
Have you ever accidentally taken a bite of a citrus peel? The flavor is much like that, with added zing from the cinnamon, peppermint and ginger. It's quite eye-opening and wakes me up. Some people prefer to get some of those empty capsules and place a few drops in there. I like taking it in water since it helps ensure I get enough liquids in the day.
It's too early to tell if it's really doing anything to help me lose weight. I do find that if I drink it when I'm feeling munchy, it helps stop the cravings, so maybe that's good enough.
If you want to see if it works for you, you can go to DoTERRA's site or there are also bottles for sale on Amazon.
Have you tried it? Did it help?
