How to lose weight with essential oils
Do you want to get rid of a few extra pounds? Essential oils can be allied to your price in the fight with pounds – Here’s what oils accelerate the weight loss process, but also how you can use them!
Essential oils are used for their therapeutic effects for more than 6000 years. They are made of herbs. Aromatherapy stimulates certain parts of the brain, with a positive impact on physical, emotional and mental state. Our nose can identify up to a trillion of different odors, and the olfactory glands are in close contact with the amygdala and the hippocampus – the parts of the brain responsible for emotion and memory. Therefore, inhalation of essential oil molecules can have an impact on arterial blood pressure, pulse, stress, silhouette, and more.
But do not expect the essential oils to do the whole thing. Make sure you have a balanced diet and oils will speed up the weight loss process.
Here are 5 essential oils that accelerate your metabolism, helping you to win out of the fight with pounds:
Grapefruit Essential Oil
Essential oil of grapefruit activates enzymes that help to destroy the body’s fat. This essential oil is made from grapefruit peel extract, which is rich in compounds like limonene. Limonene stimulates metabolism as well as lymphatic drainage.
For essential grapefruit oil to act, apply it on the skin, gently massage it with circular movements to facilitate its penetration into the skin. Due to its properties, this essential oil is found in most anti-cellulite creams.
