Slim & Sassy

So my sister-in-law Shelley is a massage therapist and does a lot of holistic healing. She is always reading up on the new alternative medicines and has a ton of certificates in all sorts of naturopathic therapies. We tease her sometimes about being the witch doctor in the family but her methods seem to work for a lot of people so I go to her for a lot of things and respect her opinion. Her latest thing that she has really been into is essential oils. She has been using oils for a long time but she found a new company that makes a purer, safer oil. She is a distributor for the company Doterra which makes several different essential oils. Check it out at I bought a basic kit over a year ago and use them occasionally. There is one for respiratory, inflammation, etc. Mostly I use the lemon oil in my good.

Anyway, she brought me a little present to try. It is a new product called Slim & Sassy. I call it skinny and skanky because that's funnier. It is a blend of essential oils that you put in your water and drink. It is a blend of grapefruit, lemon, peppermint, ginger and cinnamon. I must say that it smells really good and just adds a nice flavor to your water. It is supposed to help manage hunger, calm your stomach and lift your mood. I figure, I may as well give it a try. It creates a healthy flavored water if nothing else. I'll keep you posted on my results.


  1. That oil sounds cool. I didn't even know about that one, must be new. I'll have to try it when Mom gets back.
