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.

After my fifth baby, I was ready to get back to work as a fitness trainer and group fitness instructor. That said, I know what it takes to lose weight. I know the exact calories, protein vs. carb ratio, etc. But... my sugar/carb cravings can get out of control, which can lead to weak moments... having me go off course.

My friend introduced me to Young Living essential oils. I loved the smells and loved adding the bottles to the medicine cabinet for the kids. Then I got more and more interested in the oils and what they could do. I found that Ocotea can help those who are diabetic, leveling out blood sugars. It can help whether your sugars are high or low.

At first I began taking 4 drops of Lemon and Peppermint oil in a capsule. Then I decided to add Ocotea to the recipe. The recipe is now 4 drops of each oil, twice a day, on an empty stomach.

When I ran out of Ocotea, I noticed my cravings came back! I am a believer that Ocotea oil can help keep you eating healthy, curbing carb/sugar cravings. And that's a hard thing to do!

I've lost 20 pounds and am now back to my pre-pregnancy weight... and my baby is only 5 months old!
