Smell Your Way to Weight Loss

The sense of smell is the most powerful of all the senses. A single fragrance can change your mood, effect your work performance, reduce stress levels, and assist with memory retention. Research shows that any pleasant scent, even those from candles and oils, can suppress appetite and even assist in weight loss! What was that? My favorite scent might actually help me to lose weight? That’s right! In a study that was conducted by Alan Hirsch, the neurological director of the Smell and Taste Treatment and Research Foundation located in Chicago, over 3000 people (84 percent of them women), were given a blend of scents and were instructed to inhale them whenever they experienced hunger or cravings. The participants showed an average of 30 pounds lost over 6 months. “Smelling something good tricks your brain into thinking you’ve eaten it.” explains Hirsch. He suggests surrounding yourself with scents such as green apple, banana, peppermint, and grapefruit. Using products such as Wick-edly Sent’s Grapefruit Mimosa scented body lotion, body wash, and olive oil soaps can potentially assist in your weight loss goal! Our Grapefruit Mimosa moisturizing body spray is not only nourishing for the skin but it will give you a extra burst of citrus freshness whenever that craving monster lurks behind that evil bag of chips. Peppermint fragrance also improves your workout, increases alertness, reduces perceived fatigue, and enhances your mood. Take a whiff of the minty aroma of our Peppermint Eucalyptus Olive Oil soap when you need a quick pick-me-up. You can even try our Rosemary Mint smelly jelly that is a revitalizing blend of refreshing mint mixed with rosemary. So, smell those pounds away...
