Cellulite is one of the hardest 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.
Tangerine, orange and lemon essential oils actually help reduce fat cells. Grapefruit essential oil is fat-dissolving and also detoxifies.
- All you have to do is add a 1 - 2 drops of your favourite citrus blend of essential oil to a small amount of coconut oil and massage into the affected areas.
I like to prepare a separate jar or container, say a 20ml or 150ml jar of coconut oil, add my essential oils to this and use it daily.
Another great benefit of using coconut oil and essential oils is that they not only help dissolve fat and cellulite but they help prevent stretch marks!
- Warning. Please note that although citrus oils are great to dissolve cellulite and tone the skin, they also enhance the photosynthesizing effect of the sun.
Avoid applying citrus oils to skin that will be exposed to direct sunlight or UV light within 24 hours or make sure to keep those parts under wraps.
Be patient. You should begin to see results in 4 to 6 weeks. You can also support this detox by including citrus fruits such as grapefruit and lemon in your diet. In particular juicing.
Stay beautiful xx
