Summer is finally around the corner, which means barbecues, ice cream, and lazy days by the pool. By now, you may have heard a thing or two, or perhaps even tried, essential oils. If not, they’re very soothing oils that can be applied to skin, diffused, and/or ingested – they’re great for allergies, stress, meditation, and I recently found out, aid in weight loss. So if you’d rather be sweating off the pounds than, well, just sweating, we have 3 easy, summer essential oil recipes that’ll give you the tastes of the season while aiding in weight loss! Even better, check out the Young Living essential oils distributor program to get all the below oils at discounted, wholesale prices, and more!
Ginger and Cinnamon
For a sweet treat, mix Ginger and Cinnamon oils into a glass of iced water with stevia. Ginger aids in digestion and improves liver function, while Cinnamon reduces bloating and improves circulation. For other sweet summer drinks, Young Living offers members pre-blended weight loss oils at a great price. Check out their offerings to mix up your summer!
Peppermint and Orange
On a hot day, there’s nothing like the cooling relief of peppermint to refresh you. We recommend mixing Peppermint and Orange into a sweet body massage oil that’ll rev up your weight loss, but leave you feeling relaxed! Peppermint is a great weight loss ally, due to its energy boosts and relief of muscle tensions. Orange relieves bloating, and instantly boosts your mood, making your daily workout a breeze.
Grapefruit and Rosemary
Grapefruit has long been known as a super diet food, and its oil is no exception to this image. Grapefruit oil represses the appetite, boosts the product of a digestive enzyme, and stimulates the metabolism. Rosemary makes a sweet companion here, and can additionally sooth the digestion or relieve muscle pain. Make a moisturizer of the two oils with a little olive oil, and massage into your wrists for a scent that will keep you on target all day!
