Slimming essential oils
One of the most effective means for losing weight is the use of essential oils. It works especially well when combined with diet and exercise. Any aroma oil is a very powerful and versatile agent that has a complex effect on the entire body.
It is this feature that allows you to successfully use essential compositions for weight loss and achieve lasting positive results.
How to use essential oils for weight loss?
Because, as we said , aromatic oils are substances of complex action, then there are many ways to use them for weight loss :
- massage (including anti-cellulite);
- body wraps;
- vaporization in an aroma lamp;
First of all, you should know: such remedies exist only for external use, but there are also those that can be eaten. The former are much cheaper, they can be bought at any pharmacy (although, of course, and here you have to carefully choose the manufacturer).
The latter are practically not found in the public domain: they can be found only in specialized stores or ordered by the internet. If aromatic oil states that it can be eaten, it means that it will be quite effective when applied externally.
Don't skimp on quality
Carefully consider the choice of products if you want to not only enjoy the aroma, but also achieve results. Remember: there are no high-quality and cheap oils at the same time.
" The soul of a flower " is not easy to extract, it is expensive and laborious, so if you want to purchase real ether - do not be stingy. Read reviews on the Internet, find a good supplier.
Such manufacturers have earned a reputation for themselves :
- JUST (Switzerland);
- Vivasan (Switzerland);
- Bergland (Germany);
- Styx Naturcosmetic ( Austria);
- Karl Hadek (Germany);
- IKAROV (Bulgaria ) and others.
Cheap synthetic esters available in any pharmacy are only suitable for household use: in aromalamp, to scent bed linen, to fight moths, etc. For cosmetic purposes, and even more so, inside, they cannot be taken.
If they come into contact with the skin, at best, they will not give any effect, at worst they will cause irritation or allergies. And it's not even worth talking about eating.
What essential oils are suitable for losing weight?
Choose your own aromatic oils for weight loss and recovery, based on their properties :
- decreased appetite - fennel, cinnamon, vanilla, nutmeg, rosemary, mint, basil oils;
- activation of metabolism - geranium, black pepper, ginger, cinnamon, conifers, citrus fruits;
- fight against cellulite - geranium, lavender, juniper, oregano, grapefruit, orange and other citrus fruits, cypress, pine;
- improving blood circulation, increasing skin elasticity - anise, verbena, geranium, cloves, jasmine, nutmeg;
- relieving nervous tension, relaxation (which is very important for losing weight) - rose, jasmine, vanilla, incense , sandalwood, lavender and others.
To reduce appetite or relieve nervous tension, compose yourself the composition of the desired aromas and inhale periodically when you feel If you are hungry at untimely hours or want to " seize " a negative emotion or a difficult day.
You can use an aroma lamp or just open and smell the bottle of aroma mixture. An important point: in the case of a bubble, you should take no more than 5-6 breaths separately with each nostril (close the other), otherwise you will experience dizziness, headache or other unpleasant effects.
The aroma lamp should also be used not around the clock. It is better to ventilate the room at night.
When massaging, add an essential agent to the base oil (almond, jojoba, grape seed, baby, etc.) according to the instructions, and when wrapping - in clay, honey or purchased mixture.
These procedures will help you lose extra pounds much faster, accelerate lymphatic drainage, remove excess fluid from tissues, restore muscle and skin elasticity, normalize cell metabolism, and help get rid of cellulite.
Daily anti-cellulite massage with aromatic oils for 10-14 days - and you will build on your eyes, fat the layer will become smoother, " orange peel " will begin to disappear. The use of essential oils significantly increases the effectiveness of massage and body wraps, since volatile esters penetrate deeply into the tissues, acting directly on the cells and body fluids.
To take a bath, the essential composition must first be dissolved in a transport substance - serum, honey, kefir - and then add to the water, otherwise it will float in droplets on the surface and cause irritation of the skin and mucous membranes.
Baths help to improve blood circulation, metabolismTV, relieve nervous tension, increase skin elasticity, remove toxins and just relax. Bath time - no more than 20 minutes, temperature - up to 38 degrees. It is better to take them every other day, alternating with full body massages.
As for taking esters internally, we do not recommend that you do this. It is much easier, tastier, cheaper and safer for health to eat foods rich in the necessary aromatic oils. These are the same citrus fruits, ginger, parsley, fennel, dill, basil, cilantro, nutmeg and others.
You should use not one, but several essential oils, combined with each other in order to achieve a synergistic effect. For example, lemon essential oil for weight loss can be mixed well with juniper or ginger, geranium - with jasmine or lavender, and so on.
Usually, the instructions say which oils are best to combine with your chosen remedy.
Under no circumstances should essential oil be applied directly to the skin! It should be dissolved in a fatty base oil (almond, jojoba, olive, etc.) or cream.
Do not use aromatherapy during pregnancy! The period of breastfeeding also excludes almost all aromatic substances from use (only some oils are suitable, for example, anise oil, but this should be checked with a doctor).
Allergy sufferers, asthmatics, and people with liver problems should also refrain from aromatherapy.
Before using the new oil, do an allergy test: Apply a small amount of essential oil mixed with the base oil to the inside of your elbow. If there are no negative reactions within an hour, then you can use it.
It is very important that the aroma oil not only has good properties, but you also like the smell, because if you experience unpleasant sensations when inhaling its aroma , then no positive effect will be achieved (the body will be in a state of stress).
Most people like citrus smells (which explains the popularity of orange essential oil for weight loss), and roses, jasmine and conifers. Choose for yourself exclusively your composition, and let it not only help you lose weight, but also give you a good mood!
