Massage Away Fat

Even when I was younger and thought I was cute, I always had a “pooch-out” belly. I’ve lost 92 pounds over the last 2 years and even with losing all of the weight, my belly is still the biggest thing on me. I recently saw an article on losing belly fat that really interested me. It uses essential oils and aromatherapy massage to get rid of belly fat. I am going to give it a try. I’ll give you the recipe too and you can join me.

Essential Oils for Belly Fat Massage Oil

Directions

Pour the carrier oil into your plastic bottle and shake well before each use. To use, massage the abdomen in a circular motion. This works for belly fat, cramps and other menstrual pain. It also alleviates the uncomfortable symptoms of hormonal fluctuations.

 

 


If you’re like me, your cuticles can get very dry after doing housework such as laundry, dishes and bathroom cleaning. I could use gloves but I hardly ever do and even when I do, the gloves make my hands itchy anyway. When the delicate skin around your cuticles is dry and they look rough and ragged, you can use this oil-infused nail soak twice a week to make them beautiful and healthy looking again.

Add 1 tablespoon almond oil and 1 tablespoon jojoba oil into a microwave safe bowl and heat for 5 – 10 seconds. The oil should be warm but not hot. Soak you nails for 5 minutes and then rub the excess oil into your hands, especially around the cuticles.

Jojoba oil contains wax esters that are similar to the natural oil your skin produces to replace lost moisture. strengthens your skin to prevent future hangnails. Warming the oils before beginning lets them absorb into your dry skin more easily.


The cold temperatures, frosty winds and dark days of winter can wreak havoc on your skin as well as your mood.  Pamper your skin with aromatherapy ingredients you probably already have at home. Take care of windburn, rosacea, bacne and eczema with an aromatherapy skin soothing ointment.

Eucalyptus has anti-inflammatory and antiseptic properties that soothe and heal inflamed skin. Coconut oil contains anti-oxidants that repair and protect your skin’s barrier and help prevent future problems. Mix 1 tablespoon of coconut oil with 3 drops of eucalyptus essential oil. Apply this blend to areas where your skin is irritated. You should feel relief right away but continue to use this two to three times a week for ongoing relief.

 


A lot of people don’t know the difference between ‘healthy’ skin and ‘unhealthy’ skin. There are actually a number of glaring signifiers to determine whether or not your skin can be considered healthy. There are typically four criteria to look at in regards to healthy skin: hydration, even color, smooth texture, and normal sensations.

Hydration is in reference to whether or not skin is frequently overly dry or flaky; even color is referring to whether or not skin looks blotchy; smooth texture relates to acne, blackheads, scars, and wrinkles; lastly, normal sensations is referring to whether or not you may feel burning or itching on your skin. One of the best ways to ensure that your skin remains healthy is through organic body care.

Natural Clay Masks

Facial masks have beneficial effects for many skin types because they can nourish, rejuvenate, and stimulate; refine, cleanse, and peel off the outer skin layer; soothe and calm inflammation; clear acne, loosen blackheads; and act as an anti-wrinkle treatment and natural face-lift. For natural skin care, you can use practically any fruit or vegetable in your refrigerator and many other foodstuffs. You can purchase a flower water to blend your dry ingredients but I prefer to use plain spring water as the moisturizer with essential oils added for the properties they bring to the mixture.

Clay masks are wonderful because the clay has absorbed the sun and the plants and minerals of earth over thousands of years giving it rejuvenating and anti-aging benefits for our skin. Clays come in an assortment of colors from all over the world and can be found in health food stores and pharmacies. When we combine the clay with essential oils they complement each other with a synergistic effect providing natural skin care that is highly beneficial. White kaolin clay is best used on normal to oily skin because it has an astringent effect. It removes impurities from the skin as it cleanses and it improves lymphatic flow, increasing blood circulation to the area. Fuller’s earth is a stimulating clay that is a soft brown in color. It is a cleansing clay plus it removes dead skin cells. It is best used on oily to normal skin.

Green clay is the best of the clays and it can be used on all skin types. It is good for treating acne and other skin disturbances as well as providing an anti-aging effect for mature skin. Green clay balances combination skin, normalizes oily skin and revitalizes dry skin. It is rich in calcium, magnesium, potassium, and sodium and energizes connective tissue. It stimulates very gently and it is effective in increasing the lymph flow and circulation allowing oxygen to speed the elimination of waste products.

Of course, you can purchase a face mask that you squeeze from a tube providing an instant face mask but these products contain all kinds of unnecessary ingredients that may even be harmful to your skin. When I look at the expiration date on a product and it is a year or two away, I wonder how that product can be good for my skin and I want a natural alternative instead. That’s why I make my own facial masks and cleansers. A homemade mask takes only a few minutes to assemble and once you put your tailor made product in a jar you have your own instant face pack ready to use at any time and tailor-made for your own skin type.

 


The Best Carrier Oil

Author: Dr. Larita

Almond oil, also called sweet almond oil, is the most popular carrier oil used for facial and body massage because its excellent emollient properties help the skin to balance absorption. It is a great moisturizer that is suitable for all skin types, helps relieve irritation, inflammation and itching, and is fantastic when used for lubricating because it penetrates slowly.

Almond oil is a good massage medium to use to assist the spread of the carrier oil and essential oil mixture, while still allowing you time to do a good massage before it is absorbed by the skin. Not only does almond oil help protect the surface of the skin, but it is a wonderful emollient, skin soother and softener, conditioner of the skin, and it promotes a clear, young looking complexion. Almond oil is suitable for all skin types but is especially good for dry or irritated skin.


Softest Face Ever

Growing up, my mother had the softest face that I had ever felt. I was so amazed at how soft her skin was. She took so much care of her skin. It was important to her to have healthy looking skin.

I would watch her do her nightly facial regime. She would use a facial moisturizer. Her favorite was Oil of Olay. Throughout the years she never seemed to age and her skin was flawless. She passed her secrets down to me.


Many essential oils have anti-bacterial and anti-viral properties. If you have a humidifier in your home to keep the air from getting dry, you can add essential oils to the water. Another way to use them is to inhale them directly to treat any respiratory problems you may have. There are five essential oils that are awesome for treating respiratory problems.

  • Clove oil can be used in a home-made gargle by adding a few drops to a cup of warm water and gargling. Clove oil has a cooling effect and anti-inflammatory properties and this will sooth your sore throat.
  • Peppermint is a great essential oil to use as an expectorant and decongestant so it will really sooth a dry cough and sore throat. Simply add a few drops to a cup of hot water and sip. Rub a few drops on the back of the neck or on the bottom of the feet and any fever you have will simply vanish. Peppermint is also good for eliminating the headache that so often accompanies a cold.
  • Oregano is called a “natural antibiotic”.  It is very strong so only use 2-4 drops in a glass of water to eliminate sore throat and sinus infections.
  • Eucalyptus has anti-inflammatory, antiseptic, anti-viral, expectorant, antibiotic, decongestant and many more properties that make it an exceptional essential oil to use during the cold and flu season. Eucalyptus oil can be used to fight tuberculosis and it can have an antimicrobial effect on all kinds of bacteria and viruses. It is also known to cure bronchitis and asthma.
  • Juniper berry oil also has great anti-fungal and anti-microbial properties. For bronchitis, add a few drops of juniper to your vaporizer for a very soothing effect. For deep chest colds, use a combination of juniper oil mixed with eucalyptus in an inhalation therapy treatment for an even better result.
