Essential Oils for Weight Loss

Essential Oils for fat lossIn this article, I am going to discuss the best essential oils for increasing your metabolism and helping with fat loss and weight loss.

  1. Cinnamon Oil

Cinnamon oil balances out something in your body called the glucose tolerance factor (GTF) which stabilises blood sugar, and help keep those hunger cravings under control.

If someone has diabetes or any sort of blood sugar imbalance, cinnamon oil is the most effective oil to use. You can simply diffuse that oil. I add a single drop into my health food shake or smoothie.  (IMPORTANT: Cinnamon oil is toxic if consumed in excess – one drop is ample)

  1. Grapefruit Oil

You’ve heard of the grapefruit diet right?  Well there is proof that grapefruit can activate enzymes that break down fat – the problem is you would need to consume about 10 grapefruits a day – and that’s not really practical.  Thankfully because of the concentrated nature of essential oils – you can get this benefit for just a few drops a day!

There’s a medical study on Grapefruit Oil that has shown it starts activating enzymes in your body that help you break down body fat even just by smelling it!

Now, you’re not going to smell grapefruit oil and you’re going to drop 20 pounds overnight, but it can assist in fat burn taken in conjunction with healthy eating lifestyle.   Using these oils together will support metabolism, so over time you may lose an extra three to five pounds.

In terms of the overall compounds that support direct fat burning, grapefruit oil more than any other essential oil contains those compounds that activate those enzymes that break down brown belly fat and body fat in your body.

The best way to use that is simply smell grapefruit oil, or a couple of drops added into water is very effective as well.

  1. Peppermint Oil

Peppermint oil supports your metabolism and digestion.   If you want to digest well, you’ve got to get your gut healthy. Peppermint oil can support that. It can help you better absorb and digest your vitamins and minerals; such as B vitamins and certain minerals that support fat loss.   Peppermint oil is very effective for that reason.

  1. Ginger Oil

Last but not least, ginger essential oil. Ginger contains gingerols, and it’s highly anti-inflammatory. Tissue swelling can cause you to store unwanted body fat. So ginger oil is a great oil to use in addition to prevent inflammation and body fat storage.

The best essential oil overall for weight loss is going to be grapefruit essential oil. Try those if you want to burn fat and lose some weight.
