Is your New Year's Resolution to quit smoking? Then hopefully we can help you through this difficult time.

Going cold turkey is tough, but best on your body. If you choose to use the patch or nicotine gum replacement you can actually stop smoking, but become addicted to the gum. I saw a women once who had quit smoking for quite some time, but she still needed that nicotine in the form of a lozenge.

There is no easy way to stop. Nicotine is more addictive than cocaine. It plays on receptors in your brain to make you want more...and more.

We can't help you stop, but we can help you relax during those sudden nicotine attacks.
Aromatherapy can help. Using Aromatherapy to relieve stress and anxiety has been used for hundreds of years successfully.

While quitting smoking is one of the best things you can do for yourself and your health, it is also the hardest. Hopefully the following aromatherapy formula will help you to relax when those cravings hit. .

5 drops Rosemary (Rosemarinus officianalis)
5 drops Lemon (Citrus limonum)
3 drops Peppermint (Mentha piperta)
3 drops Ylang Ylang (Cananga odorata)
1 drop Camphor (Cinnamomum camphora)

Mix essential oils together, and diffuse in an oil burner.

The mixture is energizing and relaxing.

Good Luck, and don't stop trying to quit.It is hard, but not impossible.
