Weight is something that many of us struggle with… it’s hard not to think about the bodies that we live in! Whether you’re looking to lose a pound or two, make a complete lifestyle change, or just tone up, there are essential oils to help you along the way.
Ginger is known to help curb unhealthy cravings such as excess sugar. This oil helps reduce minor inflammation, which in turn can help our bodies process the good nutrients that we put inside it. When our bodies are able to absorb these nutrients, weight loss is more likely since good energy from healthy foods is being created and burned.
What makes Grapefruit so beneficial in weight loss? It contains enzymes that help breakdown body fat. It contains several different properties, including D-Limonene, that assist our body’s metabolic systems, while also cleansing. Grapefruit is used in many cellulite creams for this very reason.
Like Grapefruit, this oil contains D-Limonene, an antioxidant and anti-inflammatory that helps with metabolic functions. Among this chemical’s benefits are minor acid reflux and indigestion relief, fat cleanser and liver detoxifier. Lemon is also an energizing essential oil, and can be used to motivate activity and improve focus. As it also helps alleviate negative emotions, it may be beneficial in boosting self-confidence and self-image.

Are there alternatives to grapefruit oil? Metformin does not allow using, eating, or external use as it will conflict. Thanks

I was told about RENEW to help with sleep . I see you have one name SLEEP . What is the best one for sleep ? It state on the bottle never to use undiluted . Is your product already diluted or do I need to do that
Hi Georgia, Both essential oil blends are specially formulated to help ease the effects of daily stress and tension. To more directly help promote restful sleep, I recommend using Sleep Blend, as it contains soothing Chamomile, Lavender, Marjoram and Vetiver. Relax Blend is also beneficial to use at the end of the day to help create a comforting environment. I recommend using Renew in the morning or throughout the day as it is made with invigorating oils like Orange, Peppermint, Rosemary and Eucalyptus. It is a great blend to help keep you energized and restored during the day. All of our Pure Essential Oil Blends are undiluted. It is recommended that you dilute them using 2 Tbsp. of Carrier with up to 12 drops essential oil (6 for children). You can also use a diffuser to release essential oils into the room around you. If you are looking to apply these oils directly to your skin, we offer Sleep Blend in pre-diluted Roll-On and Spray, Herbal Soap, Candle, Meltie and Bath Salt. Renew is available in pre-diluted Roll-On.
