How To Safely Detox Your Alcohol-Induced Body With Essential Oils

Lana Mar is the owner and founder of the first Face Fitness Bar in Miami, the most unique concept of natural facelift that replaces fillers. Lana Mar is a skincare guru, educator, and certified celebrity esthetician. After a severe allergic reaction to Botox, which is not very common, she was inspired to create an effective alternative. As a former pro-athlete, Lana Mar believed in muscle memory and developed a Signature Hybrid massage with techniques from across the world in combination with cutting-edge technology and organic skin care to replace fillers and Botox. Since then, Face Fitness has become a movement with its shocking instant results, breaking the stereotype of plastics. Face Fitness was featured on Time Out Magazine, and featured on NBC6 for her celebrity-approved treatments, World Red Eye, and Voyage Miami.

Drank too much vino last night? Went on a little bender this weekend with your friends? Now dealing with the wrath of alcohol on your body and skin? All is very possible, which is why the Founder of Face Fit Bar, Lana Mar, shares how to detox your body with more than just water or a run on the treadmill but with dōTERRA Essential Oils.

How can you help your skin and body recover from the damage of alcohol toxins?

Megan Newman is a Holistic Health Coach and Essential Oil Expert. After following her practice, I have learned incredible tips on alcohol detox. Did you know that following a heavy night of drinking, you can use plants as medicine as essential pills to address your immediate detoxification needs and support the vital organs that work to keep you bounding back to feeling your best?

Plants have been used medicinally since 1500 B.C. There are over 300,000 registered plant species worldwide, with over 70,000 being used in medicine. Essential oils are ancient medicine for the modern world. It's an effective and natural option to care for yourself with added benefits minus the typical synthetic side effects.

Essential oils can be used for various medicinal, physical, and emotional benefits that can be achieved when maintaining with simple detox practices. Through detoxification, everything from your digestive health to hormone balance, adrenal issues, and even the health of your skin will improve.

What makes dōTERRA Essential Oils unique?

Not all essential oils are created equally. It's important to mention the FDA does not regulate the essential oils or supplements industry. Most of the essential oils you see sold online or at your health food store are adulterated (not pure) and have other ingredients added. This is why Face Fit Bar only recommends using dōTERRA Essential Oils, which are certified pure, tested grade essential oils for the following protocols.

How can you use essential oils?

Essential oils can be used in three ways: aromatic, topical and internal. Alcohol is very dehydrating for the body. So to restore all your systems to proper balance and help flush the unwanted toxins, drink up! Use one to two drops of each essential oil in your 32oz of water (not in a plastic cup) for a natural hangover cure.

Note: The peppermint essential oil is for cooling and will provide relief for upset stomach, nausea, and head tension. The lemon and grapefruit citrus oils cleanse the body and aid in the liver's detoxification process.

Peppermint: Cooling and Relief Blend 

Nauseous? Drink Peppermint Tea. Heat a warm mug of water 12-16 oz and add one to two drops of peppermint oil. You can also rub Digtestzen, the digestive blend, on your belly/ in your belly button to soothe nauseous feelings.

Headaches? Rub peppermint on your temples and a drop of Frankincense on the roof of the mouth to ease the pounding headache. Both Frankincense and Peppermint can pass through the blood-brain barrier and oxygenate the brain. These two are a powerful duo to ease head tension.

Zendocrine Oil: The Detoxification Blend 

Zendocrine Softgels support your body's natural detoxification system and ability to rid itself of unwanted substances. It's a proprietary blend of Tangerine, Rosemary, Geranium, Juniper Berry, and Cilantro essential oils. Zendocrine helps support healthy liver + kidney function to cleanse the body of toxins and free radicals that can slow the body's systems down, leaving a heavy, weighted feeling. You can either use it topically on the bottoms of feet, take four to eight drops internally using a veggie capsule for internal cleansing, or add 10-15 drops to the tub for a detox bath.

Slim N' Sassy: The Metabolic Blend

Slim N' Sassy combines powerful essential oils that promote healthy metabolism, balance blood sugar, and control appetite when ingested. The flavorful blend of Grapefruit, Lemon, Peppermint, Ginger, and Cinnamon supports your detox pathways and assists lymphatic drainage. You can add two to four drops to 32 oz of water or add two to four drops to a dry brush for lymphatic cleansing.
