Essential Oils To Aid Weight Loss

Lemon essential oil has a fresh, uplifting scent.  Using this essential oil has been shown to alleviate mood swings, boost energy, slow down weight loss and relieve pain. Lemon contains limonene, a compound with fat–dissolving properties. Studies show that when used with grapefruit essential oil, lemon oil boosts the process of lipolysis.

Lemon oil also works to improve mood and to boost energy by increasing the levels of hormones that stimulate the flight or fight instinct. This hormone also boosts oxygen supply in the brain, thereby improving cognitive function, blood flow and heart rate, all processes that are necessary in the optimal functioning of the body’s muscles.  Lemon essential oil has pain relieving properties. Just apply the oil on affected muscles or joints to ease any pain.​

Grapefruit essential oil has a tantalizingly sweet aroma. Other than its antiseptic properties, grapefruit oil has been shown to be effective at minimizing unhealthy cravings, increasing metabolism, boosting body endurance and energy, and reducing the accumulation of fat around the abdomen. Studies have shown that eating grapefruit several times a week can reduce appetite and aid in weight loss. Research has also shown that the main component in grapefruit, limonene, causes a process that aids the body’s ability to break down and dissolve protein and body fat.
