What Is Slim and Sassy Metabolic Blend?

You've got some awesome goals for 2017, and this year is your year! Have a look at a natural and healthy option for weight loss:

Slim and Sassy Metabolic Blend is a blend of five essential oils that are useful for losing weight, controlling appetite, and increasing water intake throughout the day. This formula is 100% pure and safe to ingest, unlike the essential oils used for making your home smell nice. The difference is in the quality, purity, and independent testing practices used by doTERRA.

The essential oils contained in the Slim and Sassy blend include pure cinnamon, ginger, peppermint, grapefruit, and lemon. These oils have amazing benefits on their own and work even better together! Read on to find out about the benefits of the individual oils and how they can improve your metabolism, control your cravings and appetite, hydrate your body, and keep you energized.

What Are the Health Benefits of Using Slim and Sassy Metabolic Blend?

Health Benefits of the Individual Essential Oils:

All of these plants have extraordinary benefits for your body, and the pure essential oils have an even greater effect on your health and wellness due to their concentrated form. When used together in this blend, all of these health benefits are combined to promote a healthy body that can efficiently lose excess weight.

Here are the five natural ingredients in Slim and Sassy and the health benefits of each:


Cinnamon is a well-known spice that can reduce your risk for diabetes by helping to control blood sugar levels, improve circulation and the function of your liver, inhibit the production of new fat cells, and aid digestion.


Ginger is used to calm nausea and stomach upset. In addition, it increases physical energy.


Peppermint is a popular oil that can improve concentration, calm stomach upset, reduce cravings, enhance the feeling of fullness, and increase energy.


Grapefruit aids your body in burning fat, reduces appetite, and flushes out toxins.


Like grapefruit and other citrus fruits, lemon is useful for reducing appetite, burning fat, aiding digestion, and detoxifying the body.

How to Use Slim and Sassy Metabolic Blend for Weight Loss

There are several ways to use this amazing essential oil blend that are effective in helping you stay on track with your healthy lifestyle.

Taken Internally:

A Drink

Mix your DoTERRA essential oil blend with a drink.

The bottle of Slim and Sassy Metabolic Blend recommends adding 8 drops of the blend to 16 oz of water. This may be too strong of a taste to start off with, so I would recommend adding 2-4 drops to start—this will also make your bottle last longer. Once you get used to the taste, add more as desired. You can sip this mixture throughout the day to help keep you hydrated and reduce appetite and cravings.

A Pill

Make your own pills by using a dropper with the essential oils and filling a capsule.

Vegetable Capsules for Essential Oils

Alternatively, if the taste is too strong, try adding 8 drops to a gel capsule, close it up, and swallow it with water. This allows you to avoid the strong flavor while still receiving the benefits of the oils. You can add less to the capsules and take them between meals throughout the day to spread it out and keep your cravings from sabotaging your healthy diet. If you've never made your own gel capsule, it's easy to do with kits such as the one below, which include a machine for closing pills. My tip is to make them right before use—don't try to make these ahead of time and store them.

A Health Shot

Take a quick health shot of the essential oil.

When you are having strong cravings for junk food, you can add a drop or two to an ounce of water and take it as a health shot whenever you need to. Make sure to continue drinking your water throughout the day. Sometimes our bodies cry for sugar or carbs when we are actually just thirsty.



Waft the scent of the essential oils toward you for a quick pick-me-up.

Slim and Sassy can be inhaled directly from the bottle or added to a cotton ball in a jar. The smell will uplift your spirits and can be used to energize and de-stress throughout the day as needed.

A Diffuser

A diffuser will spread the scent of your essential oils throughout the room.

A diffuser can be used to send tiny particles of the essential oil blend into the air. This is a great way to fight stress, fatigue, and negative feelings while you are trying to change your lifestyle.

Applied Topically:

Slim and Sassy Body Butter Recipe

Slim and Sassy oil can be applied to problem areas (cellulite, flabby skin, etc.) to improve the look of your skin. Adding a few drops to a carrier oil (coconut or olive oils, for example) will make your oil last longer. It's great for massage. Other essential oils can be layered with this technique to improve the effectiveness as well. I would recommend grapefruit, helichrysum, lavender, and myrrh essential oils.

Slimming Body Butter Recipe:

  • 114g of Sweet Almond Oil
  • 114g of Solid, Virgin Coconut Oil
  • 284g of Shea Butter
  • 10-20 drops of Slim and Sassy Essential Oil Blend
  1. Melt Shea Butter, Coconut Oil, and Sweet Almond Oil together in a microwaveable bowl or in a double boiler on the stove.
  2. Cool in fridge for 1-2 hours or in the freezer for 30-40 minutes, until it becomes a soft, solid texture.
  3. Whip with hand mixer or Kitchenaid whipping attachment for a minute, then add the essential oil. Whip again until light, fluffy and holds it shape. Add to a glass container with a lid.

Use your homemade Slimming Body Butter daily. Remember a little goes a long way! If you live in a warm climate(or a hot home) this may need to be stored in the fridge. It can be re-whipped if necessary.
