Do you want to get rid of cellulite using essential oils?
Many are affected by this condition. Some are overweight, some are underweight – it can equally affect thing and not so thin men and more women, and there are known cases of cellulites in patients with anorexia.
Cellulite most affects women and it has definitely to do with the hormonal balance. Common areas for cellulite are upper things, buttocks and hips.
Luckily aromatherapy massage can do wonders for fighting cellulite, however, it goes hand in hand with the healthy diets, lots of water and exercise.
Aromatherapy is one of the most successful forms of treatment for this condition. It is not only a cosmetic problem, as one might see it, but it is a sign that the body is in the state of toxic state, it shows that the lymphatic system is sluggish and elimination is not so efficient.
To help in this case essential oils with the detoxifying stimulating, balancing and diuretic properties are need to be utilized in the form of body oils, massage, packs. Essential oils, such as rosemary, geranium, juniper, black pepper and grapefruit should be used. These oils can be used in the lymphatic massage for reducing swelling and encouraging a more efficient drainage of lymph. If you can not use Rosemary, then use Black Pepper instead (if you are prone to seizures, epilepsy or have HBP, then rosemary is not for you.) Also it should be used between the massage treatments at home on daily basis, massaging it in with the brush or massage glove.
