ESSENTIAL OILS FOR CELLULITE TREATMENT
With the current knowledge in herbal medicine, aromatherapy has gained a tremendous respect from medical practitioners. In France, where essential oils are often used along with the conventional medicines, there is an increasing number of doctors who have studied aromatherapy.
Essential oils have long been used to improve health and wellbeing including preventing and reducing cellulite, the dimpled, orange-peel skin commonly seen on the thighs, buttocks and hips of women.
Up to 90% of women have cellulite. If you suffer from cellulite, here are the 6 best anti-cellulite essential oils that can be used effectively to prevent and reduce the appearance of orange-peel skin.
Rosemary (Rosmarinus Officinalis)
Rosemary essential oil has been known for its stimulating, energising and circulation boosting properties. A clinical study published in the Journal of Clinical and Aesthetic Dermatology showed that Rosemary reduced the appearance of cellulite by 52.9% while also improved skin firmness and elasticity by 57.9%. The study which involved 40 women age 18 to 59 years, suggested that Rosemary reduced cellulite in a wide range of age groups.
Black Pepper (Piper Nigrum)
Black Pepper essential oil is very effective and helps to reduce muscle stiffness and relieve aching joints. A randomised double-blind trial on women age 20 to 55 years, published in the Journal of Evidence-Based Integrative Medicine, suggested that black pepper could be used topically to reduce cellulite and improve the overall skin condition.
Lemon (Citrus Limonum)
For many decades, lemon has been used for slimming and cellulite treatments. A study published in the International Journal of Molecular Sciences suggested that lemon essential oil has anti-obesity (slimming) properties. Due to its slimming effects, lemon essential oil is highly recommended for the treatment of cellulite.
Grapefruit (Citrus Paradisi)
Grapefruit essential oil is one of the popular oils among aromatherapists to treat cellulite. It has detoxifying, slimming and circulation boosting properties that help reduce cellulite and water retention in the body.
Sweet Fennel (Foeniculum Vulgare)
A scientific review published in BioMed Research International listed anticancer and anti-constipation as the therapeutic properties of sweet fennel. Traditionally, sweet fennel essential oil has been used in aromatherapy for cellulite treatment. Due to its cleansing (anti-constipation) properties, sweet fennel essential oil helps reduce built up toxins in the body that otherwise can worsen the appearance of cellulite.
Ginger (Zingiber Officinalis)
Ginger essential oil is highly stimulating and warming. It helps reduce the appearance of cellulite and fat all over the body. Ginger contains powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory substances to smooth, firm and tone up the skin all over the body. Even more, it helps reduce muscular discomfort, stiffness, aches and pains.
