Metabolic rate is your daily calorie burn. The higher it is, the easier it is to maintain a healthy weight. Essential oils can help support a healthy metabolic rate, flush toxins, curb sugar cravings, and help maintain blood sugar levels in the healthy range.
Some of our favorites are:
Lemon- is a powerful cleansing agent and is helpful for weight management.
Grapefruit- another citrus oil that is beneficial to support healthy metabolism due to its cleansing and purifying properties.
Cinnamon Bark- has a high content of cinnamaldehyde and supports healthy metabolic function when taken internally.
Tangerine- a great citrus oil to support healthy metabolism by inhaling the aroma or ingesting the oil.
Cassia- this oil is closely related to cinnamon but with a slightly sweeter aroma. It can be also used to help support metabolism and has a positive effect on maintaining healthy blood sugar levels in the normal range.
Slim & Sassy Blend- this blend of oils is a great support for reaching your weight goals. There are other products that include this blend including sugar-free naturally sweetened gum.
In addition to these oils, the doTERRA Lifelong Vitality pack can help set a good foundation for metabolic health and weight management.
