How To Quit Smoking Naturally with Super Plants

Though the world has accelerated in technology, medicine, and quality of life we still remain with nearly 1.1 billion smokers in 2021. That’s a lot of tobacco. The research demonstrating the bodily harm of smoking tobacco and nicotine addictions doesn’t seem to be advancing people’s ability to quit smoking and breathe free. Why is that?

We believe that it's because the tools for quitting mostly stink.

Quitting isn't only a matter of dealing with a nicotine addiction, but also addressing the habit, supporting emotional well being, and more. Most tools, practices, and therapies only focus on one element of quitting smoking and short sight the rest. Some practices, like patches, only seek to combat the nicotine dependency while neglecting the hand-to-mouth habit. Other’s target the oral sensation while neglecting the stress induced by cutting the habit.

It was incredibly difficult, until Füm, to find a tool that helped curb nicotine cravings, replaced the hand-to-mouth action, and provided a beneficial and satisfying oral sensation that served as an excellent tool for quitting smoking. Not to mention, while also being natural.

Here's how Füm works to effectively help you quit smoking naturally, while promoting healthy habits.

What is Füm?

Füm is an all-natural, wooden aromatherapy inhaler, made from Canadian Maple in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. Füm allows you to passively breathe in the benefits of natural plants (via. their essential oils) without vaporizing or heating them--it’s all natural, Karen.

Simply breathe in through your mouth, and out your nose allowing your olfactory system to soak in the benefits of mother nature.

How Does it Work Though?

First let’s talk about plants and their aromas.

Essential oils, the over-Karen’d buzzword, have been used for centuries as natural tools for bodily support. Today, with more research and backing, essential oils are being used to support seasonal allergies, mood, fitness, and for quitting smoking through topical application and inhalation.

For quitting smoking, there are three main plants that do a great job in kicking the nic’: Black Pepper, Peppermint, and Lavender.

Black Pepper - Reducing Nicotine Cravings

In 1994, PhD. Jed E. Rose and team ran clinical studies at the Duke University Medical Center on the effect of black pepper essential oil as a nicotine cravings reducer. They found strong results in reducing cravings through passive inhalation of black pepper. Black pepper, when inhaled passively, has an earthy and warming sensation that mimics the sensation of smoking tobacco--helping to psychologically replace that craving.

Peppermint - Oral Sensation and Improved Breathing

Classically, peppermint is a go-to for smokers looking to quit naturally, as peppermint provides that  cooling sensation menthol smokers are used to. Not only does it replace that craving, the menthol in peppermint helps to decongest and open airways counteracting the damaging effects of tobacco. It’s sensation is quite strong and memorable.

Lavender - Ease the Pain of Quitting

Lavender is a great supplementary tool for its calmative and anti-inflammatory properties. Lavender, in short, helps to ease the pain of quitting psychologically and physically.

Quitting Doesn’t Have to be Complicated

If you’re reading this and you are a smoker, it’s likely you’ve tried a number of different tools that haven’t cut it.

By filling the hand-to-mouth craving, reducing the nicotine cravings, providing an oral sensation, and reducing the onset of anxiety symptoms, Füm serves as a start-to-finish tool for anyone serious about quitting smoking naturally.

If you’re ready to take the step in quitting smoking naturally, we recommend the Füm Quit Naturally Pack. It comes with 1 Füm and four packs of Cores that are great for quitting: Conquer, White Cranberry, Black Pepper, and Peppermint.

Conquer is our premiere formulation built on the benefits of Black Pepper, Peppermint, and Lavender among other flavourful plants like cinnamon and clove, to provide an all-in-one blend for start-to-finish quitting. No nicotine, no electronics, and no harmful chemicals--just plants and their natural benefits.

Füm fits beautifully in your pocket, and the four packs of Cores will help get you through your first weeks of being nicotine free!

Not to mention, you picking up the Quit Naturally pack also gives back to children in need in Kenya. Learn more about the M4K Initiative here.

In Summary...

Everyone’s quitting journey is unique, and the process will vary. Take each day a new, focus on reducing and progress to quitting completely. We have a number of blogs on habit formation, and they can be great guides for setting up strategic plans for successfully quitting.
Understanding what you crave most from smoking is key to overcoming the addiction. Targeting that craving is crucial. Regardless of what it is, we believe Füm can help.

Hey Amber,

Our Peppermint Cores are a great choice for those who are used to menthol! You can take a look at them here:

A Core lasts 1 full day of repeated use before the beneficial properties of the natural plants are absorbed. Please Note: flavor doesn’t equal benefits. You may still taste a Core’s flavor after it’s past the expiration point.

Füm™ July 13, 2022

I’m a few short of a pack a day of camel crush menthol silvers (formerly camel menthol lights). What would be the best replacement for these & at what rate should I use them? I’ve tried every other means to quit to no avail. Please help!

Amber July 13, 2022

Hi Annette,

Depending on the Core flavors you choose the “hit” can vary in experience. Menthol based Cores like Conquer and Peppermint have strong oral sensations whereas Cozy Chai has a softer and much sweeter experience.

Füm™ June 24, 2022

Does this hit like the capnos?

Annette June 24, 2022

Hey Theresa,

When inhaling through the Füm™, there will naturally be some air that enters into your respiratory system. As a general rule of thumb, pure, therapeutic grade essential oils diffuse long before they reach the lungs when Füming™ but we recommend to focus on breathing primarily in through your mouth and out through your nose without directly inhaling it into your lungs. For more information, take a look at this blog article on the safety of inhaling essential oils, here:

Füm™ May 30, 2022

FUM didn’t answer Christiana Potter’s question. Is inhaling essential oils into your lungs safe??

Theresa May 30, 2022

Hey Liz,

Great question!

Black Pepper has an earthy and warming sensation that mimics the sensation of smoking tobacco so it is a great choice! Alongside Black Pepper Cores, our Conquer Cores are a blend of various super plants, including Black Pepper. Conquer Cores are formulated to help with cravings and is also a great option to support your quitting journey. Take a look at our Conquer Cores here:

former smokers here: My boyfriend is looking to quit, he seemed interested in these, he smokes American Spirit light blues, a few short of a pack a day. Would the black pepper cores be closest in taste? He’s very picky as far what he smokes, A.S. Light blues, he likes the taste the best and I want to try to simulate it as closely as possible to ease the quitting process. Thanks in advance!

Hi Christiana,

Füm™ Cores are infused with 100% pure, organic, therapeutic grade essential oils that are intended for aromatherapy/inhalation. We recommend breathing in through your mouth and out through your nose as this allows the beneficial properties of the essential oils to be absorbed by your olfactory system :)

Take a look at this blog article below that you should find very helpful regarding the safety of inhaling essential oils!

Füm™ April 26, 2022

I am wanting to try this method of quitting smoking ciggs and was wanting to know if you inhale the plant into your lungs or your just out only thru your nose? Because either way when you inhale it does go to your lungs and is it safe?

Christiana Potter April 26, 2022

I have tried almost everything from the gum, to the patch, I was hypnotized and nothing has worked. I really want to give this a try but with money limited now I have to be somewhat sure. If I purchase FUM I will be sharing my experience with everyone. Thank you for giving the failed smokers in this world a chance at a longer and better life. Marsha

Füm™ April 19, 2022

I am so interested in this product but I am allergic to soy, therefore I need to know if it’s an ingredient.

Vicki April 19, 2022

Hey Beverly,

Yes! The Starter Pack does include a Füm™ Inhaler :)

Füm™ April 05, 2022

Does the fum come with the starter kit?

Beverly J Henson April 05, 2022

Hi Aja,

Yes. When using Füm™ we recommend to breathe in through your mouth and then out through your nose :)

Füm™ February 08, 2022

Do you inhale this product?

Aja Bridgewater February 08, 2022

Hey James,

That’s a fantastic way to put it! Thanks so much for the feedback and recommendation :)

Füm™ November 17, 2021

Alright, so I’m gonna say a good way to think about it is 1 core = 1 pack if you’re a pack a day smoking. That will help people who smoke understand it more clearly in terms of cost. So if you get 4 cores for $8.00 you’re essentially buying four “days” of “smoking” for $2.00 per day. Which if you include the cost of the unit is either cheaper or breaks even if you’re paying anywhere between $5.00-$8.00 per day for a pack of cigarettes. I would recommend adding this kind of cost calculation to the advertising because people make this deliberation when trying something new or trying to find a replacement for their smoking habit.

JAMES Lee WATSON November 17, 2021

Hi Dwayne,

There are 4 individual Cores in a pack of pre-infused Cores. A Core lasts 1 full day of repeated use before the beneficial properties of the natural plants are absorbed.

Please Note: flavor doesn’t equal benefits. You may still taste a core’s flavor after it’s past the expiration point.

Füm™ October 18, 2021

In 2007 I quit smoking cold turkey and didn’t smoke again until hurricane Harvey in 2017 when I was laid off, I started back smoking and haven’t been able to stop, I’m really looking long and hard at this product, I’m a pack and a half a day smoker, so I’m trying to get an idea of overall cost.

Dwayne Brewer October 18, 2021

I bought my Fum with the pepper cores a year ago. My first few attempts to quit smoking resulted in 3-5 day successes followed by running back to the pack. *The packs.

But today marks my 6th month free of nicotine. If you’ve been looking for a sign, this is it. Invest in yourself. Forget the science for a second. The addiction is an emotional journey. The Fum helps you on that path.

Varun Prabhu October 01, 2021

Any non smokers who used to smoke, like this product, just for fun?

Rachel Carlson August 25, 2021

Hi Mat,

A Core will typically last you about 1-2 days depending on how often you use your Füm™ and how well you store it (i.e. in it’s air tight Pocket Case). There are 4 Cores in each pack.
