I was reading recently that essential oil of grapefruit can help in a weight loss plan. This really surprised me. Is this true? And if it is, can you tell me how do I use it?
Simple answer is yes!
Using essential oils can help all of us with weight loss. In fact grapefruit essential oil has many benefits.
But for our purposes today, we’re looking at how it affects the lymphatic system. Essential oil of grapefruit (Citrus paradisi ) is a well-known lymphatic stimulant.
The lymph system is like the refuse collection system of the body. Which means it scoops up the toxins and rubbish, and takes it to be disposed of.
When losing weight, we want to use the benefits of this natural body-cleaning system to help us.
Using citrus paradisi with the benefits of aromatherapy massage doubles the benefits.
Aromatherapy massage is great for the lymph system and using grapefruit in the blend makes it even better. The aromatherapy authors Battaglia, Mojay, Lavabre and Davis all recommend grapefruit essential oil for cellulitis, obesity and water retention.
You can buy the pink or white; just pick which you prefer.
Here’s a home blend you might like to try:
30 ml carrier oil, I suggest grapeseed, Jacqueline prefers sweet almond
7 drops grapefruit
4 drops fennel
6 drops juniper berry
1 drop carrot seed
2 drops rosemary
This blend may be massaged on your abdomen, upper thighs, chest, bottom and arms daily until it’s used up. I call this one my “Detoxifying Blend”. Enjoy!
