Cellulite is one of the harder types of fats to dissolve in the body. Cellulite is an accumulation of old fat cell clusters that solidify and harden as the surrounding tissue loses its elasticity. Essential oils such as tangerine and grapefruit may help digest fat cells. Cypress enhances circulation to enhance the elimination of fatty deposits. The essential oils of lemongrass and spearmint may also help burn fat.

Suggested Essential Oils: Rosemary, grapefruit*, lemon*, cypress, fennel, juniper, spearmint, tangerine*, lemongrass, Cedarwood


Recipe for Massage Oil:
9 drops lemon*
9 drops cypress
2 oz of jojoba oil
Massage oils into the skin at least once daily and before exercising. Cellulite is slow to
dissolve so target areas should be worked for a month or more in conjunction with weight
training and a weight loss program.

Recipe for Bath Oil
5 drops juniper
3 drops orange*
3 drops cypress
3 drops lemon*
2 tablespoons of honey
Mix the oils in the honey the dissolve in warm bath water.

*Citrus oils are photo-sensitizing. Do not expose the skin to UV rays after using these
oils. Allow at lest a couple hours before spending a lot of time outside.

Hi, my name is Naomi, I am a Christian, certified aromatherapist. I also have an Associate Degree in Bible. I looked for books about aromatherapy from a Christian point of view and didn't find any, so I wrote one, The Aromatherapy Advocate. An introductory book for Christians on aromatherapy. I have one son whom I home schooled. I started using essential oils 10 years ago. I love the fragrances and I love the powerful benefits of using essential oils. I received my certificate about 10 years ago and have been teaching and writing about aromatherapy from a Christian perspective since then.
