Essential Oils that May Help You Lose Weight
While it is impossible to shed unwanted pounds by using essential oils alone, the fact is that these oils can speed up the weight loss process. Aromatherapy is known to stimulate portions of the brain and thus affect your physical and mental health. Below is a short list of essential oils you may want to consider using. Be aware, however, that these should be used with caution. Talk with your doctor if you are taking prescription medicine and always use the oils as indicated on the package.
Grapefruit oil activates enzymes in your saliva that break down fat. It also boosts your metabolism, suppresses your appetite so you aren't tempted to eat more than you should and prevents bloating.
Lemon oil curbs cravings while boosting your metabolism. At the same time, it increases your energy and endurance levels so you have the stamina to exercise on a daily basis. Another fascinating fact about this type of oil it that it specifically targets belly fat.
Cinnamon is powerful oil with a strong fragrance. It boosts your metabolism and suppresses your appetite by breaking sugars down into energy instead of storing them as fat. As a side benefit, this process gives you an energy boost.
You may also want to try using essential oils that reduce the stress and anxiety that cause many people to reach for unhealthy snacks throughout the day. Some good relaxing oils include lavender, rose, bergamot and chamomile. As a side benefit, bergamot also boosts the metabolism. If you aren't familiar with these oils, consider trying some to see which ones are best for you personally. They may not enable you to shed pounds overnight but will boost your weight loss efforts.
