Trying to lose weight and want a little extra boost to your efforts? Perhaps you could use essential oils for weight loss.
What are essential oils though? Well, basically these are oils that you blend with water that are then inhaled.
Here are four essential oils that could help boost your weight loss efforts:
#1: Lime Oil
There was a study back in 2010 that was published in the journal Phytotherapy Research that showed that lime essential oil could help with weight loss, and to prevent weight gain caused by certain medications.
For best results it is recommended that you add between 1-3 drops of this essential oil to your food.
#2: Peppermint Oil
It has been shown that the peppermint essential oil can help:
- Aid digestion
- Curb food cravings
This can obviously help with your other weight loss efforts.
#3: Grapefruit Oil
If you inhale grapefruit oil a few times daily then your appetite can be reduced, which will aid your weight loss efforts.
A study in 2005, that was published in the journal Neuroscience Letters showed that the primary component, limonene can help with weight loss.
#4: Cardamom Oil
To improve digestion and to prevent bloating and various other gastrointestinal issues then it is recommended to add cardamom oil to your daily diet.
Where to buy Essential Oils for Weight Loss?
There are various places to buy essential oils, shops on the local high street such as Holland & Barrett would be a good place to start.
You can also buy them online too. A quick Google search will reveal numerous websites selling the above aromas.
I would recommend you experiment to see which aroma you prefer before buying too much.
