Sometimes fat can be just as stubborn as your cravings. No matter how much time you spend in the gym or how much you cut down on food, losing weight seems impossible. While some doctors may suggest taking certain medications to promote weight loss, there are always side effects to worry about. Sometimes those side effects can be much more troublesome than the weight itself. So what can you do? For those who want to use a holistic approach, you may want to consider a guide to losing weight with essential oils.

 

How to lose weight with essential oils

Citrus essential oil for weight loss

By following this recipe, you can create the perfect essential oil recipe to stimulate weight loss. You will need essential oils of:

  • lemon
  • pomelo
  • bergamot
  • sweet almonds or coconut oil

Also a clear glass bottle and a medicine dropper. Take the lemon essential oil and add ten drops to the glass bottle. Do the same with grapefruit essential oil. It is grapefruit, in particular, that will help reduce fat as it contains limonene, which boosts immunity and fights fat cells. From the essential oil of bergamot, extract five drops and add them to the glass bottle. Then pour two ounces of sweet almond oil or coconut oil into the glass bottle.

Once this mixture is made in the bottle, you can start mixing by shaking the bottle for thirty seconds. Once it has been properly mixed, you can use a cotton ball or soft cloth to apply the oil to the areas where the fat is stored. Massaging it into the skin always works wonders. In addition to using essential oils for weight loss , you can use this particular oil cocktail to help reduce cellulite.

First, you will need to extract 20 drops of the peppermint oil in the bottle. The same with the lemon. With this amount in the bottle, mix the contents by shaking it for thirty seconds. With the essential oils properly mixed, you can keep the bottle with you during every meal. When it’s time to eat, take out the bottle and inhale the aroma. It will help you control your appetite and not eat too much. If you feel like eating something, use the bottle to help your appetite wait until lunchtime.
