Topics Discussed in this Episode:

  • How Dr. Mariza started her research journey on essential oils
  • What to look for in essential oils and what to pay attention to in essential oil companies and brands
  • Essential oils to combat sugar, salt, and fat cravings
  • Morning, daytime, and evening rituals to sustain your energy

  • Phototoxicity and photosensitivity with essential oils
  • Essential oils for PMS support
  • The uses and benefits of copaiba
  • Essential oils for bloating and digestive support
  • Essential oils as air fresheners

Key Takeaways:

  • 98% of the essential oils in the market are synthetic to some degree or adulterated.
  • It takes a lot of plant materials in order to create really therapeutic, beneficial, organic, and powerful plant essential oils.
  • Peppermint is such a great appetite and craving suppressor.
  • Dr. Mariza’s “Sugar Be Gone” blend contains 8 drops each of grapefruit, lemon, and peppermint. And her “Instant Energy” blend is a combination of peppermint and citrus (grapefruit or wild orange).
  • Oils have a way of shifting your emotions and shifting your stress and shutting up that mental chatter.
  • Dr. Mariza’s thyroid blend is 5 drops of frankincense, 5 drops of lemongrass, 5 drops of myrrh, 5 drops of clove, and 6 to 8 drops of lavender. For the liver, it’s turmeric and castor oil.
  • Your go-to oils for PMS are clary sage and lavender. For the blend, use 10 drops of clary sage, 8 drops of lavender, 8 drops of geranium, 4 drops of bergamot, and 4 drops of ylang-ylang.
  • For bloating, if it’s a duo, it would be 10 drops each of peppermint and ginger. If it’s a trio, it would be 7 to 8 drops each of peppermint, ginger, and phenol.

Action Steps:

  • Do your research on essential oil brands and companies.
  • Know your trigger points when it comes to cravings and always have your essential oil blend to combat them.
  • If you’re feeling overwhelmed or stressed, set a timer on your phone for every 90 minutes or every hour where you just take a moment, stand up, and reset.


Dr. Mariza said:

“The cool thing about essential oils… is that they’re anti-microbial, anti-viral, anti-bacterial… because these chemical constituents are secondary metabolites on plants and their job is mainly to protect the plant from environmental threats…”

“Self-care is really just giving yourself permission to pause.”
