So many people today want to learn how to burn fat and lose weight fast. The truth is there is no magic pill or potion that will do it for you. To lose weight safely and effectively you must expect to make some lifestyle changes. However, there are some ways to make the process less painful.
Disclaimer: you will not lose 20, 30 or 50 pounds using essential oils alone, but they could help in shedding a few pounds, plus support your body in important, healthy ways for weight loss.
The best oils for weight loss:
- Grapefruit Oil
Grapefruit essential oil actually works with your body in activating enzymes that help your body 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 the 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.
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 it in your office or home, or massage some onto your chest and wrists when a craving strikes.
- Cinnamon Oil
The second best essential oil to support weight loss is cinnamon oil. Cinnamon oil has been shown to help regulate blood glucose. For that reason, cinnamon oil is beneficial 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 oil to fruit, tea, oats, baked goods or smoothies helps slow the rate at which glucose is released into the blood.
- Ginger Oil
The third essential oil that supports the body in weight loss is ginger essential oil. Ginger works because it also reduces sugar cravings and helps reduce inflammation in the body. It’s so important that if you’re going to lose weight, that you’re also reducing inflammation, and supporting digestion and absorption of nutrients.
Using the Oils for Weight Loss
You can put one single drop of each in water and drink it that way, or you can actually put it on topically or diffuse it. When you’re putting it on topically, we recommend using a carrier oil like coconut oil or tropical blending oil, especially when you’re using the cinnamon oil. Or one of our favorite ways is just diffuse it. It will activate parts of your body that will actually support weight loss.
