Essential Oils To Aid In Stopping Smoking

Smoking can be a real drain on many aspects of your life. Financial, mental and physical issues can all arise as a result of smoking. The problem with cigarettes is that stopping is more challenging than you would initially think. To try and make quitting that little bit easier, some people work with essential oils. With all of the different oil combinations on offer, you’d naturally assume that there are some that can help you quit. But what are they?


What Oils Are Going To Help Me?


Before we begin suggesting oils, it is worth noting that what works for you might not be on the list. With aromatherapy, you’ll find that your body will instinctively lean towards the oils which will do you the most good as a unique individual, so you should always listen to your mind and spirit in that regard.


Having said that however, there are certain oils which can have a calming or relaxing effect on you, and this can aid with the detoxification process and also help any withdrawal symptoms you might develop. Neroli is a good oil to use because of its de-stressing and antidepressant properties. Sandalwood is also a good choice because it helps to ground and relax the spirit, helping you to keep your focus and avoid relapsing into cigarettes and smoking again. Another good choice is called Bergamot, which is likened by many as being an overwhelming positive sensation inside of a small bottle.


Using The Oils Effectively


When choosing the right oils, it’s also really important that you take the time to make sure that you’re using them in an effective and safe manner. For example, you could add a few drops of one of the oils in order to sniff it, which will help to reduce the chance of smelling cigarette smoke. You could also use the oils to have a hot bath, and allow the smell to reach every part of your body. However, it is important to remember that you need to dilute the oil in milk before adding it to the hot water. This will prevent the oil from being damaged and ensure that you get a maximum level of effectiveness. As a side note, never ingest the oils! It’s dangerous and something we definitely do not recommend. 


Overall, these are just a few of the oils that you can use to help overcome a smoking addiction you may have developed. As we said before, each person is drawn to a different oil. The body knows what will work best for it, so you need to make sure that you listen to the body and choose to make the right choices with oils. It will become apparent to you which oil is best for you, so it’s well worth taking the time to look around and find one which is best for you. Make sure you’re safe with these oils as well. They may be good for you, but if you use them in the wrong way they can wind up doing more harm than good.
