Herbs and supplements

I found this info on a website for natural cures. I haven't tried any of these yet. Im going to try the one with black pepper, eucalyptus oil and lemon and will let you know if it's any help.

" The greatest drawback of quitting smoking is the fear of feeling anxious and depressed. But there are many herbs and supplements that can help you stop smoking. These herbs include lobelia for cigarette cravings, ginger root for nausea, St. John’s Wort for depression, passion flower for irritability, and rhodiola for energy.

Did you know that the therapeutic benefits of essential oils can help you!

Essential oils can be used as a potent and effective treatment for smoking cessation. They work by helping you control the cravings and withdrawal symptoms associated with quitting smoking.

The use of essentials oils is a safe and natural way to help alleviate symptoms such as irritability, anxiety, stress, fatigue and nervousness – which are usually associated with nicotine withdrawal.

Quit Smoking Mixture

Mix equal parts of lemon, black pepper, and eucalyptus essential oils. Apply oil to skin under nose or to a cotton ball and inhale with several deep breaths when the urge to smoke arises."

It also gave this info: "For every cigarette you smoke, over 4,000 toxic chemicals are inhaled into the body. Most of these chemicals have been directly linked to cancer. Nitrogen dioxide ozone penetrates your body when you smoke cigarettes . This chemical damages DNA and reduces the amount of vitamin C available for use by the body." Something to think about.........

I didn't use oils but did use incense, haven't used it for the last weeks.

When I stopped I could smell them in everything, eventhough we never smoked in the house.

So anytime I started stressing for a cigarette, I would just light up incense, somehow the smell of it helped a lot to get rid of the first cravings...


Very interesting topic, worth me having a look at me thinks
