Daily massage is one of the best weapons a woman has when it comes to fighting cellulite…especially when using the ideal essential oils for cellulite reduction. I personally enjoy a massage every morning and night, as it provides many benefits.
You might not think that toxins play a part in the build up of cellulite, but they absolutely do. Where does the body store toxins? In fat. It’s sad, but true.
To help reduce the embarrassing appearance of cellulite, it is vital to remove the toxins that have accumulated in your body. Without taking action, the build-up of toxins will only grow, making cellulite worse and worse as time goes on. Who wants to deal with that? We want cellulite to get BETTER not WORSE. Am I right, ladies?
One sure fire way to reduce the accumulation of toxins in our body is through massage. This process stimulates the system that sits directly below the skin, known as the lymphatic system. A daily self-massage can help break down fatty deposits and help the toxins in our body to get circulated to elimination channels, which set those nasty toxins free! Massages can be done manually or by using a dry, soft-bristled shower body brush. Both methods of massage have shown great improvements in the reduction of cellulite.
Essential Oils for Cellulite
Top 5 Best Essential Oils For Cellulite
Some helpful oils in the battle against cellulite include:
- Cinnamon leaf essential oil — helps to stimulate the flow of blood through the body and also strengthens connective tissues.
- Hazelnut essential oil— softens the skin.
- Juniper essential oil — increases circulation and helps to activate slow-growing tissues.
- Citrus essential oils — increases circulation and helps to prevent lymph build-up while reducing water retention, tightening skin and strengthening capillaries.
- Jojoba essential oil — softens the skin and helps to keep your sebum in balance. (Sebum is responsible for the waterproofing of our skin and hair, as well as keeping our skin and hair from becoming dried out.)
You can find these and many other essential oils for cellulite at specialty stores or search for your preferred type at Amazon.com
The combination of these and other essential oils into a massage oil will help you win your personal war over cellulite if you take action with them every day. Here are two popular massage oil recipes that have been proven to help in the reduction of the appearance of cellulite over a period of time.
I’ve include my favorite recipes below, but here`s a video demonstrating how to make a homemade cellulite massage oil using essential oils that target cellulite:
Here are my two favorite anti cellulite massage oils and essential oils you can make right at home!
Making the massage oils is simple. Take your ingredients and pour the directed amount of each into a bottle with a cap. Cap it up and shake thoroughly before using. Massage oils should be stored in a dark, cool place. Oils can be kept for up to six months. Applying them is just as easy as making them. Before you give yourself a massage, take a hot shower and end it with a cold rinse to tighten the skin. Using your dry, soft-bristled shower body brush, brush the cellulite affected areas with your homemade oil until the skin absorbs all of the oil or becomes red. This does not mean you have massaged too much or too hard, it just means you need to give your skin a break. After your massage, you should take another hot shower and pat your skin dry before facing the day.
For best results, this massage regimen should be done daily and should also be paired with an exercise routine and a diet high in fiber and low in fat. Combating cellulite is a team effort, and massage, diet, hydration and exercise are you star players!
