Did you know that you can burn more fat and lose weight safely, faster and more efficiently with the help of essential oils? I want to be honest and upfront with you and let you know that you are not going magically drop 10, 20, 30 pounds just by starting using essentials oils ;you still would have to workout, make healthy meal choices, etc. But by incorporating essential oils in your daily regiment could help your body in shedding a few pounds, plus support your body in important, healthy ways for weight loss.
There are few essentials oils that I really believe can help your body with weight loss. And in this article I will share with you a few of my favorites, lets start with an oil number one:
Grapefruit Essential Oil actually woks with your body in activating enzymes that help your body to break down brown body fat. We know that grapefruit can benefit weight loss and that the essential oil of grapefruit actually comes from the grapefruit peel, which is very high in certain compounds like D-limonene and helps support the metabolism as well as cleansing and drainage of your lymphatic glands.
When applied topically to the skin in small amounts, Grapefruit Essential Oil is an excellent diuretic and lymphatic stimulant. This is one reason why its included in many cellulite creams and blends that are used for by dry brushing. For that reason, Grapefruit Essential Oil is the number one oil that can help your body in burning fat and losing weight because of how it activates enzymes in your saliva, which helps break down body fat in your body.
When mixed with Patchouli oil,Grapefruit Oil is known to lower cravings and hunger, which makes it a great tool to lose weight fast in a healthy way. Add several drops to your water, diffuse in your home, or massage some onto your chest and wrists when a craving strikes.
2. Cinnamon Bark Oil.
My second best choice in recommending you to lose weight and curb your cravings would be Cinnamon Bark Essential Oil. Cinnamon Bark Oil has been shown time and time again to help regulate blood glucose levels and something in your body called GTF (Glucose Tolerance Factor). For that reason, Cinnamon Bark Oil is also fantastic for anybody with diabetes.
It helps balance blood sugar, which long term will help with weight loss and help reduce those cravings for sugar. Unstable blood sugar can lead to overeating, low energy and weight gain, but adding Cinnamon Bark Oil to fruit, oats, baked goods or smoothies helps slow rate at which glucose is released into the blood.
3. Ginger Oil.
The third essential oil that supports the body weight loss is Ginger Essential Oil. Ginger works because it also reduces sugar cravings and helps reduce inflammation in the body. It is so important if you are going to lose weight, that you also reduce inflammation and support digestion and absorption of nutrients.
The compounds in ginger are called gingerols. Gingerols have been scientifically proven to reduce disease-causing inflammation in your intestines and overall improve absorption of the vitamins and minerals you are consuming. If you are absorbing more vitamins and minerals, then you are helping to support your body`s cellular energy and create your weight loss.
A 2013 study published in the Indian Journal of Physiology and Pharmacology concluded that “Ginger Essential Oil possesses antioxidant activity as well as significant anti-inflammatory and anti-nociceptive properties”. After being treated with Ginger Essential Oil for one month, enzyme levels increased in the blood of mice. The dose also scavenged free radicals and produced significant reduction in acute inflammation.
4. Peppermint Essential Oil.
Peppermint Essential Oil is an effective digestive aid and can help ease an upset stomach. According to Dr. Alan Hirsch Peppermint Essential Oil can contribute towards weight loss by working on your brains satiety center-the ventro- medial nucleus of the hypothalamus. Peppermint Essential Oil stimulates a feeling of fullness in the stomach.
Add a few drops of Peppermint Essential Oil to a handkerchief and inhale deeply before meals to reduce your appetite. You also could add a drop or two an 8 ounce glass of water or tea and drink right before a meal.
5. Bergamot Essential Oil.
Bergamot Essential Oil is gotten from the Italian citrus fruit and provides relieve to people who eat when they are stressed. The sedative in Bergamot Essential Oil makes it ideal for people whose weight gain is as a result of stress and also help them keep in check their stress related eating habit. To get the best result, use it with Lavender Essential Oil.
The large content of polyphenols in it makes it effective in treating weight gain. Among the things polyphenols does in the body include boosting metabolism, fat oxidation and stopping the assimilation of bad cholesterol. Another function Bergamot Essential Oil does is to stop a particular enzyme in the body linked to increase blood sugar levels; it also helps the body breakdown fat and sugar faster.
When a person is stressed and wants to stop the urge to eat, just ass 1 or 2 drops to a fabric and inhale. This helps you to get relax and revitalize. Diluting it with your warm bath can help relieve stress and give a boost to the start of a new day.
Essential oils have been used for over five thousand years. They are one of the most powerful forms of medicine in the world. The five oils I shared with you are probably the most effective oils for weight loss, which leads us to the next logical question ” How to use these essential oils for weight loss?”.
My answer is… You can put one single drop of each in water and drink it that way, or you can actually apply it topically or diffuse it. I also recommend using a carrier oil such as Fractionated Coconut Oil, especially when you are using Cinnamon Bark Oil. Or one of my favorite ways is just diffuse it, such as on your desk at the office or around your home. It has a great scent. It will activate parts of your body that support healthy weight loss.
Essential Oils are safe,natural remedy which may help you to follow through on your New Year Resolution to loose weight and have a happy, healthy lifestyle with those you love, Give it a try!
