Quit Smoking With Essential Oils

DoTerra Essential Oil Help For:

Quitting Smoking

Nicotine is an addictive drug. It causes changes in the brain that make people want to use it more and more. In addition, addictive drugs cause unpleasant withdrawal symptoms. The good feelings that result when an addictive drug is present — and the bad feelings when it’s absent — make breaking any addiction very difficult. Nicotine addiction has historically been one of the hardest addictions to break.

When a person smokes a cigarette, the body responds immediately to the chemical nicotine in the smoke. Nicotine causes a short-term increase in blood pressure, heart rate and the flow of blood from the heart. It also causes the arteries to narrow. The smoke includes carbon monoxide, which reduces the amount of oxygen the blood can carry. This, combined with the nicotine effects, creates an imbalance between the demand for oxygen by the cells and the amount of oxygen the blood can supply.

What are the symptoms of nicotine withdrawal?

  • irritability
  • impatience
  • hostility
  • anxiety
  • depressed mood
  • difficulty concentrating
  • restlessness
  • decreased heart rate
  • increased appetite or weight gain

It tends to not only the addiction itself, but also the withdraw symptoms. If you or someone you love is trying to quit smoking… I recommend this to help. The withdraw symptoms are much less and makes the process easier on everyone involved.

  4. When making an inhaler, about how many drops does it take to “load” the inhaler?

    • Hi Melissa,
      As many as you would like.. when I was making them for my husband, I would put 2-4 drops of each (making sure it covers both ends of the cotton insert) until we found which oils worked best for him and adjusted them.
