Did you know that the essential oil of black pepper is helpful in overcoming nicotine addiction? I have a friend who helped his buddy stop smoking 6 packs a day by putting the essential oils of black pepper and wild orange in a vaporizer. The wild orange improved the taste and helps support good mood. Black pepper is also good for sore muscles and I like to use it in my cooking!
Black pepper helps cleanse the blood of nicotine and reduce the cravings. It can be rubbed on the bottoms of the feet or mixed with a couple drops of olive oil and taken in a capsule. It can also be used in food, but it’s best to dilute in butter or olive oil and used after cooking. The heat breaks it down. I put a few drops in some mayo that had been left out for several hours and I was a bit worried about it growing bacteria. After I put the oil in, it didn’t change the taste much and I knew if there was anything growing in there, it would be gone! I also love it on roasted veggies 🙂
If someone is a chain smoker who is struggling to quit, I would recommend them applying these oil to the bottoms of their feet every hour or two. Drinking grapefruit essential oil in water can also help change the taste in the mouth to help with cravings. Have you had any experiences with using essential oils for addictions? Please share!
