Smart & Sassy (also known as Slim & Sassy) is a great blend that has grapefruit Peel, Lemon Peel, Peppermint Plant, Ginger Root, and Cinnamon Bark essential oils. It is a bit spicy so use a carrier oil if you have sensitive skin.
If you are like me, living in the Northern Hemisphere, you may be ready to hit a beach. Smart & Sassy helps with maintaining a healthy metabolism, helps manage food cravings, calms your stomach and lifts your mood.
I put a drop in a big glass of water if I am really craving sugar, but not everyone can handle the taste of Smart & Sassy so doTERRA also offers gel caps that you can take as well. I also like to put a drop on my wrist and rub my wrists together for a mood lifter and to curb my appetite. If you are having a stomach upset you can put a drop of oil mixed with some fractionated coconut oil or any carrier oil that you prefer and rub it in a clockwise motion on your stomach. Diffuse it! It is a wonderful scent to diffuse in your home.
I have also heard, and will try this out this summer that it is a good repellent for ants! Who knew?! I tend to get a lot of ants in my garden so I will try it out by putting a few drops of oil in a glass spray bottle with some water and spraying it around the yard where the ants march around.
If you don’t love the spicy smell you can also rub a drop of the oil on the bottom of your feet to help control your appetite and you won’t need to smell the oil. I love the smell of it, but everyone is different with spicy oils.
