Thieves Essential Oil is Great for Hotel Stays

by Karen Brooks on November 5, 2012

How many of you travel for business or vacation? Can you really trust the cleanliness of the hotel rooms? There has been some pretty scary videos on exactly now some rooms are cleaned!

Don’t take any chances when you travel. No matter how clean the toilet looks, there is no guarantee.  Don’t let some hidden germ ruin your travel.  Disinfect with some thieves spray or homemade wipes that will easily get through security.

Lightly wipe the TV remote and refrigerator door handles. Statistics say that there are more germs on that TV remote than anywhere else in the room!

Make your hotel room feel like home. Take along a familiar smelling essential oil. Use a plug in diffuser, or just put a drop or two of oil on a cotton ball and place in the heating or air conditioning vent.  This will help you adjust more quickly to your new surroundings.

How do you use essential oils when traveling?  Drop me a note on my Facebook page.

Many people use Grapefruit essential oil to aid them with weight loss.  I personally use a few drops in a glass of water to help curb the appetite.  Smelling the aroma also can help stop those hunger pangs. Rubbing the oil on your body can assist is breaking down cellulite.

Diffusing the oil can help uplift your spirits and smells remarkable!

Were  you aware that the reason why Grapefruit Essential oil helps with curbing your appetite, is that it encourages a positive, healthy relationship with your body based on love and acceptance?  Many people have a tendency to hide their feelings by over eating  or other forms  of  eating disorders.  Grapefruit essential oil will assist you in taking responsibility for your feelings.  As you grow stronger in this area, the tendency to get help increases, and feelings are no longer behind food. The dissatisfaction that they had with your body and appearance are released. You begin to honor your body again.
