Here’s are my top three essential oils for each common ‘issue’ you may be faced with during your detox:
Suppress Cravings: Peppermint, Fennel, and Wild Orange
Reduce Agitation: Bergamot, Geranium, and Melissa
Settle Anger: Lavender, Rose, and Ylang Ylang
Alleviate Boredom: Lavender, Cedarwood, and Cypress
Depression: Citrus Frankincense, Rose, and Jasmine

Frustration: Patchouli, Camomile, and Ylang Ylang
Resentment: Wild Orange, Rose, and Geranium.

My favorite use of these essential oils is to dilute a few drops of each into an essential oil diffuser and let the scents waft through the house! Be sure to choose pure oils that are therapeutic grade—breathing in artificial fragrances will defeat the purpose and only increase the amount of toxins in your body.
