My 6 Favorite Ways to Use doTERRA’s Slim & Sassy

  1. In my water: I fill up a big pitcher of water every morning and add 2-3 drops of Slim & Sassy. I drink this first thing in the morning right when I wake up to hydrate my cells, boost my metabolism and aid in detoxification. Additionally, I put some Slim & Sassy in my water before I go to the gym and it gives me yet another refreshing boost. For the sake of being honest here, I basically have a Slim & Sassy and Lemon essential oil with me at all times…so one of them is always in my water :p
  2. To reduce cravings: A drop or 2 of Slim & Sassy under the tongue and you can kiss those ‘tween-meal cravings goodbye! There is even Slim & Sassy gum…it wasn’t available here in Europe for a while but I think it is now! But even with the oil right in your office drawer or in your bag can help combat against snacking that comes from boredom and stress.
  3. In my DIY Coffee Scrub for Cellulite: I love making DIY personal care products because I am all about getting the toxins the F*#^ out of my life! It’s extremely revitalizing, rejuvenating, hydrating and boost circulation. I use this scrub AT LEAST once per week if not more.
  4. One drop in my hands, cup over nose and INHALE: This is my perfect pick-me-up after lunch when everyone else is reaching for that 3rd or 4th cup of a coffee or an extra bite of sugar. To be honest, I’m not a fan of sweets at all and I only have coffee a couple times per week. Slim & Sassy is all I need for a creative and energizing boost!
  5. In my diffuser in the morning: This awakening blend is perfect for the morning. After I put a couple drops in my pitcher of water in the morning, I put some in the diffuser as well. This is a great move because it helps me from climbing back into bed. Once I drink my Slim & Sassy water and then inhale it through my diffuser – I AM AWAKE, BABY!
  6. On my body: I mix my own skin-tightening body moisturizer with fractionated coconut oil and Slim & Sassy. This is something I like to do in the evening after a nice dry brush session or on a rainy weekend when I have the opportunity to stay inside most of the day and relax. >> Please do not go out in the sun after putting this on your body!<<
