I’m going to let you in on a little secret. I’m going to share with you a few of my favourite essential oils for weight loss. Now I’m not talking about using the essential oils to strip away fat and kilos from your body. I’m talking about using them to help motivate you and keep you on track mentally. The inner work is just as important as the outer.
Are you at your ideal weight? Cringe, me neither. It’s hard. I have a vision of what I want to look like and everyday I see that I’m not. How demoralising.
Things are changing for me though. Since I’ve introduced a regime of wellness and essential oil into my daily routines, it’s not necessarily that my body shape is changing – the shape is shifting in my mind, emotions and spirit. All I can explain it as is a sense of freedom.
I feel better. I feel better when I get up in the morning. I feel better when I see myself in the mirror. I feel better when I think about the future. And guess what? It’s not a secret, it’s been part of human lore for generations.
What are my favourite essential oils for weight loss?
Grapefruit Essential Oil.
Rich in the powerful antioxidant di-limonene, Grapefruit essential oil is cold-pressed from the peels of the fresh fruit and is one of Young Living’s Culinary essential oils. I love to add it to my water on a daily basis.
Grapefruit essential oil is known for its invigorating citrus scent and delicious, tart taste. Add Grapefruit essential oil to water to give your drinks a little zing, or add a hint of citrus by incorporating it into culinary recipes. Give NingXia Red® an extra boost of flavour with a couple drops of Grapefruit essential oil.
With a sweet, invigorating aroma, this oil can be used to encourage feelings of joy, satisfaction and playfulness. Grapefruit is definitely one of my favourite essential oils for weight loss motivation.
Tangerine Essential Oil
Tangerine essential oil is extracted by cold pressing the rind of the tangerine fruit and is one of the Young Living Culinary essential oils. I love to alternate this with Grapefruit in my water bottle.
Tangerines, which are part of the Rutaceae family, likely originated in Southeast Asia and have since spread to subtropical areas around the world. Like the fresh citrus fruit, Tangerine oil is loved by children and adults alike, with its delightfully sweet aroma that can create a happy, contented mindset.
Tangerine essential oil is one of the sweetest flavours of all Young Living’s citrus culinary oils. Bringing complex citrus notes to savoury dishes and desserts, Tangerine essential oil is a bright, tangy addition in the kitchen.
Slique Essence combines Grapefruit, Tangerine, Lemon, Spearmint, and Ocotea with stevia extract in a unique blend. These ingredients work together, especially when used in conjunction with Slique Tea.
The pleasant citrus combination of Grapefruit, Tangerine, Spearmint and Lemon essential oils adds a flavourful and uplifting element to any day.
Ocotea essential oil adds an irresistible, cinnamon-like aroma, while stevia adds an all-natural sweetener that provides a pleasant taste with no added calories.
