Shape Yourself With Aromatherapy: Aromatherapy - The Weight Reduction Technique

Aug 18, 2007
All of us as individuals love to see ourselves slim and fit. But quite unfortunately many of us are unable to maintain our body weight. Obesity is by far, a very common and an upcoming issue these days. People from almost all walks of life irrespective of their age seem to be affected by this problem. Everyone suffering from obesity wants to lose weight and feel better. But it must however be remembered that the quickest and the easiest way to lose weight is not the healthiest way of weight losing.

It is a common human psychology that for the purpose of feeling better about oneself, weight losing is essential. But interestingly, when you start thinking and feeling good about your own self, perfect health, happiness and consequently weight loss follows. Feeling better takes you one step ahead in losing weight. The art of aromatherapy is very effective for a perfect mood up-liftment and in fighting out stress and strains related to obesity. However, the relation between the aromatic scents and human emotion is supposedly great. The practice of aromatherapy is helping people a lot in fighting out all types of health related problems ranging from headaches to skin condition and from pregnancy to elder care. These days it is also being used as a weight losing program.

Aromatherapy essential oils are believed to work wonders in weight reduction programs, when those aromatic oils are used while taking bath. Inhalation or massaging methods are also effective but not better than the bathing technique. After extensive study and research works, it has however been proved that Aromatherapy and the usage of the essential oils are very beneficial to reduce weight. The best part of this practice is - there are no side effects to this treatment and the effects are rather long lasting than any other method.

The aromatic oils and scents which are essential and as well as effective in reducing weight are Grapefruit, Birch, Juniper, Fennel, Lemon and Orange. The ways of using these oils to serve the purpose of slimming down and for the best effective results are:

1. Massage: Massaging the essential oils over the body parts with excess fat can prove to be effective. The aromatic oils need be blended with base oil like almond oil or any scentless body lotion. Blending the oil makes it easier to apply.

2. Take a refreshing bath: Add 5 drops of Orange and Fennel, 3 drops of Birch and 2 drops of Grapefruit into warm water and take a refreshing bath. This will help a lot in reducing the excess fat slowly but steadily.

3. Body cologne - Blend 3 drops of Juniper and Orange, 2 drops of Lemon and Grapefruit in a cup of water. Put the mixture into a sprayer; use it as natural cologne throughout the day. It helps you in controlling your desires to overeat and also reduces excess fat.

However, a standard aromatherapy practice helps an individual to lose weight by improving his/her sense of relaxation and a perfect judgment of staying well and remaining fit. More importantly, you need to be aware of taking the proper amount of essential oils and making the necessary blends for the purpose of massaging the different body parts and the fatty tissues.

One of the primary purposes of writing this article is to open up the world of aroma to all the individuals, to expose each and every single male as well as female to a heightened awareness of the subtle conditions existing around them that may have a significant effect upon their well-being.
