Yes, there are essential oils that help with weight loss. And knowing and using them can help you achieve your weight loss goal.
Millions of people across the globe deal with weight issues that include being a few pounds overweight to obesity.
Everything from where you live and work to genetics play a role in your health and how much you weigh but there are things you can do to make a difference.
For example, you can eat a balanced diet and exercise regularly. You can also use essential oils to assist in your weight loss endeavor.
These oils have the potential to help you reach and maintain your goal weight.
Before we reveal the essential oils that help with weight loss, let’s first look at how these EOs work to aid with weight loss.
Some people find it difficult to be positive when they’re forced to give up certain foods they love just to try to lose a few pounds.
Others may find it difficult to get excited about exercising. If you’re having a hard time staying positive, essential oils may help uplift your spirit.
Certain scents are inspiring and they help create a positive attitude that may help you stick to your diet and exercise plan.
It’s difficult to stick to your diet when you’re feeling hungry all the time. Those nagging cravings are responsible for making you overeat.
You may not even realize how often you snack because it’s become such a habit. Essential oils can help you break these bad habits by helping to eliminate cravings.
As a result, you will be able to reduce your calorie intake, which will ultimately help you lose weight.
It’s difficult to follow a regular exercise routine when you feel tired and sluggish. Instead of getting excited about exercising, you may be looking forward to taking a nap.
This is where essential oils can really help. Some oils have the ability to boost your energy levels to help motivate you to exercise.
Some also helps to increase endurance, which helps you perform better so you can get out there and give it all you got.
The way your body digests the foods you eat has a major impact on whether you meet your weight loss goals or not.
Poor digestion makes it difficult for your body to break down foods properly, which reduces the amount of nutrients you absorb from the food.
As a result, you’re more susceptible to illnesses that can hinder your ability to perform at your best when working out.
If your digestive system is “out of whack”, it can make you feel constipated, bloated and exhausted. It can also slow down your metabolism, making it harder for your body to burn calories.
There are many oils to choose from with properties that may help you achieve your weight loss goals.
This makes it easy to find oils that suit your personal needs but it can also make it difficult deciding which ones to use.
To help you get started, here are some of the best essential oils to use when you need assistance achieving your weight loss goals:
Citrus essential oils, especially grapefruit, are at the top of my list for helping to curb my appetite.
Ginger is another essential oil that wasn’t included in the above list that I like to use to help curb my appetite. It seems especially helpful when I get a sugar craving!
If you are not good at making a blend here is one I recommend. It has appetite curbing essential oils in it.
These oils can’t make you lose weight but they do have the ability to make conditions more favorable so you can meet your weight loss goals.
You need to try out the oils mentioned above to see which ones work well for you. This is important because our bodies are all different and the oil that works well for me may not do so for you!
Once you have found the oil that works well for you, you can use them individually or blend them together to take advantage of their combined potency.
If you have never used a certain essential oil it is important to do a skin patch test prior to topically using! See my sections on topical use and other essential oil safety concerns:
