Addiction Formula Combines 100% pure essential oils of lemon, grapefruit, cedarwood, petitgrain, clove and eucalyptus. This formula supports the emotions and heals the physical damage that the body has suffered during the substance abuse of smoking, drugs, drinking and over eating.
Lemon, grapefruit and clove will clean up the toxins and petrochemical clutter in the cellular environment and stimulate perspiration in order to help the body cleanse by eliminating toxins through the skin. Cedarwood, petitgain, clove and eucalyptus will bring in an intense amount of oxygen and promote the release of the body’s own natural stress reducing chemicals to satisfy that endorphin fix by stimulating the pleasure centers. Eucalyptus intensifies all the other oils so physical energy is available for repair. Eucalyptus helps break up and clear the toxic congestion stored in the lungs and the tissue. Clove will soothe the throat and help relieve the coughing associated with the elimination of toxins through the air passages.
Addictions can be difficult to heal but not impossible. They certainly can’t be dealt with logically. Addictions come in all shapes and all sizes but eventually they end up self-destructive.
Our brain is wired for pleasure; we have many pleasure centers and pleasure receptors in our body/mind and our body, (the subconscious), learns what stimulates them very quickly. No one really loves their first taste of chocolate, sip of coffee or their first cigarette, but the body/mind overrides the taste sensations in order to gain the benefits of the chemical stimulation and influence. Addiction formula provides the euphoric fix and helps to repair all the consequences caused from long-term substance abuse. This includes dissolving the guilt and shame associated with addiction as well.

The Trap of Addiction
All humans have six basic needs and unless we are extremely evolved we live out our lives to satisfy the first three basic human needs, which are: security, variety, knowing that we have a value, that we are significant. The fourth strongest human need is – love or connection, five – freedom to express our self (growth) and six – contributing to others or the world at large. Anything or anyone that is perceived to satisfy three or more of our six basic human needs while, stimulating the production of endorphins can easily become an addiction.
Food is a good example. Logically we all know that junk food doesn’t contribute to our health but most of us regularly eat junk food, espeically when depressed. Remember the six basic human needs that cause us to fall into patterns of addiction? Food can fulfill all six!
1. Certainty or survival- Food is a certainty. We know where to get it, how to get it and what it will taste like.
2. Variety – The sky is the limit with food. There is always something new to try, and many creative ways to prepare it.
3. Significance – This may be why popular coffee chains are so successful; we feel special because we can get what we want, when we want it and exactly how we want it. Now picture yourself at the family dinner table and it is your chance to share about your accomplishments and achievements with people who love you.
4. Connection – Food is a social event constantly presenting the opportunity to spend time with others. Or it presents the opportunity to take a break to eat by yourself, perhaps somewhat like a cigarette break; seven minutes behind a cloud all to yourself.
5. Growth – Cooking is creative. Learning about food, shopping for ingredients and preparing the perfect meal is quite an art.
6. Contribution – Cooking for others can be fulfilling. People often prepare large meals for events such as holiday gatherings and fundraisers.
Food can easily become an addiction because it satisfies ALL SIX of our basic human needs and junk food and packaged foods deliver chemical signals that stimulate our pleasure centers. (Manufacturers induce an addiction on purpose, which you can learn all about by doing a bit of research on the topic of MSG). Chocolate induces many of the thirty-eight endorphins released during sexual arousal. Rich, creamy dairy products induce many of the same endorphins released during nurturing.
A trauma-induced addiction won’t make sense logically because it is the insanity that keeps us sane temporarily. Healing takes time and most of us stay so busy that we don’t allow the nurturing time to regain balance. During and after a stressful situation or a traumatic blow we need time to reflect and self-actualize, transition and heal. If we don’t take the time to heal, then an addiction can intervene acting like the glue that keeps us together. Anesthetic practices such as painkillers, cigarettes, heroin, antidepressants, marijuana; excessive reading, TV or movie viewing and overeating can numb the body, the emotions and the mind. This artificial stillness acts like a dam, a blockage, temporarily holding back the emotional flood-waters. By using numbing devices to stop the natural flow of our emotions, our emotional intensity will increase as the anesthetic wears off.
