Coffee and Turmeric Scrub for beauty treatment in spa.

No matter how old you are or what kind of shape you’re in, you’ve probably battled cellulite at some point.  Everyone has!  Personally, I got tired of being ashamed to wear a bathing suit or short shorts, so I decided to challenge myself to reduce the appearance of cellulite in six months.  I started in January, and once June came along, I was wearing short shorts and feeling great about myself!

Mar 28 2011 Effective and sustainable weight loss happens after several stages. In the course of this article, we will see how essential oils aid the process at every stage, from controlling appetite to feeling confident about your body. To work on a weight-loss regimen, aromatherapy must essentially be used in conjunction with an appropriate diet, exercise and a healthy lifestyle. Aromatherapy harmonizes the mind, body and soul in a way that allows people to prepare better for a weight-loss program and derive the maximum benefit. How do essential oils work for weight loss? Essential oils help shape up the body through a multi-tiered approach:
  • Some oils like cedarwood, grapefruit, orange and rosemary can help purge the body of toxins and retained fluids
  • Other essential oils energize the mind so that you are less tempted to skip your workout routine. Try peppermint, cardamom, rosemary
  • Some essential oils infuse a sense of positive energy and help boost up confidence and body image. Use ylang ylang, clary sage, litsea cubeba. When you feel all fresh and charged-up, you have little reason to flop on the couch with a tub of ice cream.
Curb those Cravings Have you noticed how the aroma from freshly baked bread makes your tummy rumble and beg for food? It is because the nose sends a message to the brain that in turn signals the stomach to feel hungry. Just like some smells enhance appetite; there are some smells that curb it. When you start eating with a sense of fullness and satisfaction, you will naturally end up eating less. The scent of essential oils like fennel, grapefruit and spearmint can stimulate the hypothalamus, which is the center of hunger and satiety in the brain and thus neutralizes the urge to keep stuffing our body with food. These oils also promote a sense of positive energy and well-being that negates all factors that lead to comfort eating.
  • Always have these essential oils at hand
  • When you are craving something or are feeling hungry or before eating a meal, open bottle and take three sniffs in each nostril
  • Breathe very deeply
  • The more you use it, the more effective it will be.
Flush out the Toxins Unhealthy food, lack of physical activity and hormonal fluctuations can cause body cells to retain excess fluids and fats. Oils of rosemary, cedarwood and orange are potent detoxifying agents that enhance lymphatic flow and eliminate excess fluids and toxins from the body. Orange oil stimulates the liver, enhances the flow of bile and aids fat metabolism. Mix 15 drops of each essential oil and add it to a 4 oz bottle of carrier oil.  After shower, massage over body in a circular motion. More effective when used twice a day   Think Positive, Feel Great Stress and depression trigger a vicious cycle of fat accumulation in the body by increasing the level of cortisol in the blood. People battling the bulge are often plagued by feelings of self-doubt and insecurity. It is commonly observed that self-pity coupled with a lack of confidence can throw a fitness plan completely off-track. Once the mind is healthy, a fit body will not be far out of reach. A self-assured and positive person is more likely to stick to a weight-loss regimen because positive energy inspires determination and a will to succeed. Citrus essential oils like bergamot and lemon are also called the “happy oils”. Put two drops on a tissue.  Close your eyes. Take three slow, relaxed, deep breaths and visualize your mind being clear of negative thoughts and feelings. Photos by pinksherbet References:

Curb those Cravings

Have you noticed how the aroma from freshly baked bread makes your tummy rumble and beg for food? It is because the nose sends a message to the brain that in turn signals the stomach to feel hungry. Just like some smells enhance appetite; there are some smells that curb it. When you start eating with a sense of fullness and satisfaction, you will naturally end up eating less.

Essential oils like fennel, grapefruit and spearmint stimulate the hypothalamus, which is the center of hunger and satiety in the brain and thus neutralizes the urge to keep stuffing our body with food. These oils also promote a sense of positive energy and well-being that negates all factors that lead to comfort eating.

Flush out the Toxins

Unhealthy food, lack of physical activity and hormonal fluctuations can cause body cells to retain excess fluids and fats.

Oils of rosemary, cedarwood and geranium are potent detoxifying agents that enhance lymphatic flow and eliminate excess fluids and toxins from the body. Orange oil stimulates the liver, enhances the flow of bile and aids fat metabolism.

Think Positive, Feel Great

Stress and depression trigger a vicious cycle of fat accumulation in the body by increasing the level of cortisol in the blood. People battling the bulge are often plagued by feelings of self-doubt and insecurity. It is commonly observed that self-pity coupled with a lack of confidence can throw a fitness plan completely off-track. Once the mind is healthy, a fit body will not be far out of reach. A self-assured and positive person is more likely to stick to a weight-loss regimen because positive energy inspires determination and a will to succeed.

Oct 01 2010 By Irina Wardas Did you know? Foot massages can be used as foot therapy to:
  • increase energy
  • balance your emotions
  • improve your  blood and lymph circulation
  • relieve your aches and pains
  • reduce stress illness
  • holistic weight loss detox
  • headache relief
  • constipation relief
  • better sleep
 
Sometimes a headache is all in your head. Relax. ~ Hartman Jule
Use the foot diagram below for foot rubbing tips you can use on yourself or your partner. For my husband, a foot rub acts as foot therapy that helps him relax and reduce stress illness after a hectic day at work. You can start by gently rubbing the base of your first (little) toe. Continue at the base of the second toe. Next, apply slight pressure between the first and second toes. Then, rub between the third and forth toe. Next, massage, stretch and pull the big toe gently and rub each side of the nails. Finally, massage the ball of your foot in a circular motion, followed by circling around your ankle joint with both hands in a clockwise motion. Foot massages can also improve the circulation and energy level of your body. Repeat the same steps on your other foot. You can do this feet massage in the evening a couple of times a week to give your tired feet a break. Use the foot chart to find the areas where you can perform your foot massages:

As Stress Reducers

Sep 04 2009 Here is an excerpt of my Aromatherapy and Weight Loss article on Health Tourism Maganize: “If you think that dieting and exercise is all there is to fitness and weight loss, think again. Aromatherapy is the latest buzzword that thousands of fitness enthusiasts are swearing by. Essential oils can now make the pound-shedding process easier and faster than before. Before you begin to expect an abracadabra out of essential oils, let’s do a quick reality check before we proceed. To work wonders on a weight-loss regimen, aromatherapy must essentially be used in conjunction with an appropriate diet, exercise and a healthy lifestyle. Essential oils work as a catalyst by curbing food cravings, detoxifying the body and revving up metabolism. Weight loss has more to do with the mind than the body. Issues like depression, comfort eating, poor body image and lethargy often keep us from achieving that perfect body we have always dreamed of. Aromatherapy harmonizes the mind, body and soul in a way that allows people to prepare better for a weight-loss program and derive the maximum benefit. Therefore it comes as no surprise when people who combine aromatherapy with their fitness routine, end up with visibly better results. A client who used an aromatherapy blend for detoxification ended up a few inches slimmer and several pounds lighter after a period of regular use. She states that she worked out two to five times per week for one hour and improved her diet. For three days, she drank one cup of wheatgrass, four ounces in the morning and four ounces in the evening, taking one day off after every 3-day cycle. She noticed the sides of her legs no longer hurt and the tissue underneath her skin was considerably smoother. She even noticed cellulite disappearing on the backs of her thighs. She lost a total of 10 inches.’ Read more…
