Quitting smoking isn’t easy!

At I Finally Quit, we like to say “Giving Up Is Easy … Quitting Is Hard”.

Many people with good intentions fail because they try to stop without a solid quitting plan. Quitting can be done, however, with research and preparedness … anything is possible. Currently, there’s no “magic” pill or potion that completely eliminates cravings, urges, or the stress involved with quitting.

However, there’s interesting research about aromatherapy and essential oils that show promise and they are low-cost and easy to implement. Essential oils can be awesomely effective tools in your arsenal.

Below, I’ll describe a few essential oils and techniques including those I personally use to feel relaxed, calm, and soothed. Combined with other smoking cessation techniques, aromatherapy may help increase your chances of quitting and staying quit.

The Beginner’s Guide to Essential Oils (and Quitting)


If so, come register for the free online training of “Dave’s Essentials When Quitting”. We’ll detail what essential oils are, how to use them, which specific oils may help you and when to use them.

The webinar is free. We’ll give you a 10 page “How Best to Incorporate Essential Oils into Your Quitting Plan” eBook absolutely free, as well. During the webinar, you don’t have to buy anything; however, if you see something that makes sense to you and you’d like some help placing an order, we’ll be happy to help with that.

Although essential oils are not cures …

It is important to note that I am not giving you a cure-all prescription for quitting. Aromatherapy and essential oils can help relieve some of the symptoms you might experience while quitting smoking, as well as to help uplift the mood, relax, calm nerves, and extend the period of time you can go without a cigarette. You can use aromatherapy for both quitting “cold turkey” or while slowly reducing your nicotine intake daily, weekly, or monthly.


The good thing about essential oils is that they don’t produce the side effects that some nicotine replacement therapy (NRT) products can have. Side effects of using NRT include headaches, dizziness, nausea, heart palpitations, hiccups, dyspepsia, muscle pain, poor concentration and skin irritation.
