Do you crave sugar? Most of us do. Science has found that sugar addiction is just as serious as heroin and cocaine addiction. Some may not agree with that but sugar has been proven to cause some serious negative impacts such as obesity, type 2 diabetes and irritable bowel syndrome. You can kick the sugar habit by using natural peppermint essential oil.

Giving up sugar can take you through changes all the way from weakness to cravings or indigestion but as your body adjusts to a life without refined sugar, using peppermint essential oil can make you feel stronger and overall healthier. It has an effect on blood pressure, heart rate both of which can change when giving up refined sugar. Peppermint oil has also been found to treat indigestion and stomach pain in people with irritable bowel syndrome. Stomach issues often arise when getting off refined sugar, as your body goes through a detoxing period.

There are many sugar substitutes that you can use that don’t involve the use of nasty chemicals (like many synthetic sweeteners do). Instead reach for fresh, ripe fruit to help satisfy your innate and very crucial need for glucose, a sugary compound our brains depend on to properly function.

Reducing your dependency on refined sugary junk food can result in a smaller waistline. The benefits of eliminating or cutting down refined sugar intake are endless – and peppermint oil can help!

How To Use Peppermint Oil

1. Apply drops of peppermint oil to your temples and to the insides of your wrists.
2. Repeat the above every morning and evening.
3. Inhale the peppermint oil directly by using a nasal inhaler, diffuser or by putting 2-3 drops on a cotton ball or tissue and inhaling throughout the day.
