Best Essential Oils to Support Weight Loss
Your sense of smell takes place in the area of the brain known as the limbic area. This is one of the first parts of your brain to develop. However, the sense of smell can vary greatly from person to person. In fact, some people don’t even have the ability to smell. This ability can also vary with the age and gender of an individual. Some tests show that women have a much better sense of smell than men do, both when detecting odors and identifying them.
Not only do fragrances offer you pleasure, they offer your body some protection. When you place food into your mouth, it’s right under the nose where your sense of smell examines it for edibleness and freshness. Smell and taste are related senses, with the sense of smell increasing your sense of taste by providing an added dimension to the five taste categories humans are able to detect: salt, sweet, umani, sour, and bitter.
You can’t avoid smelling, since you smell with every breath you take and you have to breathe to keep living. Since smelling is so natural, it’s little wonder that aromatherapy has been used to treat diseases and disorders effectively for thousands of years. Although using essential oils won’t help you melt away the pounds, some evidence shows that essential oils can play a useful part in your overall weight loss strategy. Here’s a look at some of the best essential oils you can use to support weight loss.
- Cinnamon Oil – It helps to curb sugar cravings and regulates blood sugar levels.
- Ginger Oil – Aids in nutrient absorption and reduces inflammation.
- Grapefruit Oil – Activates enzymes in the saliva to help with fat breakdown.
Whether you choose to use the oils with topical carrier oils or you diffuse them, all three of these oils are excellent choices. You may also want to consider using essential oils that reduce stress and control your mood to support your weight loss journey.
