Recipes for Using Essential Oils for Weight Loss

I am going to show you several recipes that are easy to make. Feel free to make modifications to these recipes as you need to so that the final product becomes something you will enjoy incorporating into your day.

Citrus Fat-Melting Essential Massage Oil

Start by collecting the following ingredients.

  • 1 Bottle, any size, of Lemon essential oil
  • 1 Bottle, any size, of Grapefruit essential oil
  • 1 Bottle, any size, of Bergamot essential oil
  • 1 Bottle, any size, of a Carrier oil (examples include sweet almond oil or coconut oil)
  • 1 clear glass bottle, any size
  • 1 medicine dropper with a measurement guide on the side

When you have all of these ingredients together, follow this recipe to make an essential oil that will work to melt away any excess body fat that you want to lose.

Steps to Follow:

Step One: Adding 10 Drops of the Lemon Essential Oil

Using the medicine dropper, remove one drop of Lemon essential oil from the main bottle. Place the drop into the clear glass bottle. Allow it to sit for a moment inside the bottle. Repeat this process nine more times, making sure that you have 10 full drops of the Lemon oil inside the clear glass bottle.

Step Two: Adding 10 Drops of the Grapefruit Essential Oil

Using the medicine dropper, remove one drop of Grapefruit essential oil from the main bottle. Place the drop into the clear glass bottle. Allow it to mix with the previous oil already in the bottle. Repeat this step nine more times, making sure that you have 10 full drops of Grapefruit oil in the clear glass bottle.

Step Three: Adding 5 Drops of the Bergamot Essential Oil

Using the medicine dropper, carefully remove one drop of Bergamot essential oil from the main bottle. Place the drop inside of the clear glass bottle. Allow that oil drop to mix with the oils already inside the bottle. Repeat this process four more times until you have five full drops of the essential oil inside of the clear glass bottle.

Step Four: Adding 2 Ounces of Your Carrier Oil

Using the medicine dropper, remove one ounce of your carrier oil selection from the main bottle. Carefully place those two ounces of oil into the clear glass bottle. Repeat this step one more time, making sure you have two ounces of your carrier oil selection inside the glass bottle. Allow that oil to mix with the oils already inside of the glass bottle.

Step Five: Stirring the Oil Mixture

Carefully insert the end of the medicine dropper inside of the clear glass bottle. Slowly begin to move the dropper in a circular motion, which mixes the oils inside of the clear glass bottle. Stir the mixture for one minute to ensure that all of the oils thoroughly mix together.

Step Six: Storing the OIl Mixture

When you have been stirring the mixture for one minute, carefully remove the medicine dropper. Allow the new mixture to sit for one minute, which lets all of the oil inside of the bottle settle into place. Place the cap on the clear glass bottle. Store the bottle in a cool, dark place, such as a medicine cabinet or bathroom cabinet.

Step Seven: Applying the Oil Mixture

When ready to use, remove the clear glass bottle from its storage location. Use a cotton ball, washcloth or other material to pour some of the oil mixture onto the surface area of the item that you select. Apply that material with the essential oil mixture to the areas of your body that contain cellulite or stored fat and gently rub for up to 30 minutes. Repeat this step at least once a day.

Each time you use the mixture, it works to reduce the amount of fatty toxins inside your body. It also begins to smooth out any areas of cellulite, giving you a slimmer appearance as a result.

Appetite Suppressant Inhaler

The process begins as you collect the following items.

  • 1 bottle, any size, of Peppermint essential oil
  • 1 bottle, any size, of Lemon essential oil
  • 1 clear glass bottle of any size
  • 1 medicine dropper with a measurement guide on the side

Steps to Follow:

Step One: Adding 20 Drops of the Peppermint Essential Oil

Using the medicine dropper, remove one drop of Peppermint essential oil from the main bottle. Place the drop inside the clear glass bottle. Allow the drop to sit inside the bottle for a moment. Repeat this process 19 more times, making sure that you have 20 drops of Peppermint essential oil inside of the clear glass bottle.

Step Two: Adding 20 Drops of the Lemon Essential Oil

Using the medicine dropper, remove one drop of Lemon essential oil from the main bottle. Place the drop inside the clear glass bottle. Allow the drop of oil to mix with the oil already inside the bottle. Repeat this step 19 more times, making sure that you have 20 drops of Lemon essential oil inside of the clear glass bottle.

Step Three: Stirring the Oil Mixture

Insert the end of the medicine dropper into the clear glass bottle. Begin moving the medicine dropper in a clockwise motion as you begin stirring the oil mixture that is inside the bottle. Stir the mixture for one minute, making sure the oil mixture thoroughly combines.

Step Four: Storing the Oil Mixture

When you have been stirring the mixture for one minute, carefully remove the medicine dropper from the bottle. Allow the oil inside the bottle to sit for one minute as it finishes mixing together. Place the cap on the bottle. Store it in a cool, dry place, such as a medicine chest or bathroom cabinet.

Step Five: Using the Mixture

Remove the bottle from its storage location each time you are preparing to eat a meal throughout the day. Remove the cap on the clear glass bottle. Bring the opening of the bottle up to your nose and mouth. Slowly inhale the mixture, taking slow, deep breaths which allows the mixture to enter into your system. When you finish inhaling, replace the cap on the bottle and return it to the storage location.

Inhaling the essential oil mixture before eating works to suppress your appetite. As a result, you will eat less at mealtime, which works to reduce the amount of weight that you carry on your body.

Important Note: Whatever you choose for an oil, make sure that the oils you purchase are high quality. Remember, you're breathing this oil into your lungs or otherwise ingesting it, so essential oil quality is a terrible place to cut corners.

Weight Loss Tea

  • 1 bottle, any size, of Cinnamon essential oil
  • 1 bottle, any size, of Bergamot essential oil
  • 1 bottle, any size, of Honey
  • 1 cup, any size
  • 1 container of water that will fill the cup you select
  • 1 medicine dropper with a measurement guide on the side

Steps to Follow:

Step One: Adding Two Drops of the Cinnamon Essential Oil

Allow the drop to sit inside the clear glass bottle for a minute. Repeat this process one more time, making sure that you have two drops of Cinnamon essential oil inside of clear glass bottle.

Step Two: Adding One Drop of the Bergamot Essential Oil

Step Four: Adding the Essential Oil Mixture

Allow the cup of water to cool for a minute. Carefully add in the essential oil mixture from the clear glass bottle. Add several drops of honey to the mixture according to your style of taste. Stir the drink mix together for one minute.

When the drink mix is ready for consumption, consume it in the same manner as you would another warm beverage that you enjoy.
