Warning: Not all essential oil brands are the same quality. If you expect to achieve results similar to those described in this testimonial, then ensure that the oil you are using is made from pesticide-free plants grown in optimal conditions. Also, the brand should be a 100% pure, high-quality essential oil that does not contain any synthetic additives. Do your own research or ask trusted friends to find a brand that is reputable.

I've recently made a decision to eat better and make healthy choices when it comes to snacking and going out to eat.

I have not been drinking as much water as I needed, so I decided to try to drink my water with Grapefruit essential oil added to it. I've really enjoyed how refreshing it is. It is also very easy to drink because it's not the same old boring water that I normally have to choke down.

Meanwhile, I've shed 3 pounds in 2 weeks, and I feel like my cravings for sugar and carbs are being controlled very well.

For travel, I've been putting 2 drops of Grapefruit oil in a 20-ounce glass water bottle. It's very convenient because I can just carry that with me when I go out to run errands, and I always have my essential oil with me. So if I refill my bottle on the go, I just add a couple of drops, and I'm good to go!
