Review: doTERRA Slim & Sassy
Have you tried essential oils yet? My husband uses a few that he swears by, so I am excited to try doTERRA’s Slim & Sassy product!
I have been using the Slim and Sassy for a about a month and would like to share with you my thoughts. I had picked up some weight through the winter months (like that picked up? Why can’t I just put it down?) , and now find that I am craving the salty crunchy foods. So how did Slim and Sassy help me? I feel it has helped to cut down on the cravings. My pattern has been that I take a few drops before breakfast, lunch and dinner to minimize how much I eat with meals.
I have learned this month that the Slim and Sassy works great to battle nausea. The combination of Ginger and Peppermint which are both known to help with queasy stomachs has been helpful with the 24 hour flu bug that raced through our house this month.
While the taste is something that I had to learn to like, the smell was something that I did enjoy. The smell is strong! Honestly, I like the smell better than the taste but smelling it won’t get it inside my body!
When I received the bottle, I couldn’t wait to try it. I grabbed my bottle of water and immediately added it to my drink. Mistake! I had a really hard time drinking it. The taste, which is a blend of grapefruit, ginger, lemon, and peppermint and cinnamon essential oils, is not BAD, just different. It did take me a couple of days to learn to like it. I tried the drops alone on my tongue. Let’s just say that it is a real eye opener the first time to take it this way! Now after a month, I find that I can use the product either way depending on my schedule and if I just need a little help at any moment.
As far as the taste, the strongest flavor to me is the ginger. I love ginger but it is still the one that stands out, followed by cinnamon. If you use it straight, it may give your mouth a little burning sensation (which is not unpleasant).
And as a bonus, I did find that since I was cutting out the snacks, I did lose about five pounds without doing anything different. I will call that a successful test.
