Aromatherapy to Reduce Belly Fat
Sounds wonderful to me. How about a massage and a wonderful
fragrance to sooth the senses? Could that be the answer to
reduce belly fat. I only printed a small excerpt from a very
long article, but pay attention to the last paragraph and the
essential oils that might just be a way to reduce belly fat and
thigh fat and even a fat butt.
We all know that fragrance can be a driving force.
Some smells wake you up and some are romantic and some are
energizing. Your ability to smell is tied to how well you can
sniff. You cannot smell something when you are stopped up
with a cold, allergies or sinus infection because you simply
cannot pull enough air up into your nose.
There is an interesting article about aromatherapy and its
effect on the human being. Just an excerpt from the middle of
the article follows.
....Though there are said to be
about 300 essential oils, an average household could make do
with around only ten of them.
Using a synthetic drug to kill bacteria is like cracking
a nut with a sledgehammer in the process, not only killing
bacteria but also destroying the beneficial ones present in the
bodies. But essential oils act slowly in the antibiotic sense
and while killing off the bacteria or virus they raise the
body's immune system to strengthen the resistance," underlines
FM's Handbook of Aromatherapy by Mumbai-based Dr. Ravi
The book points out that Aroma-therapy being a
"complimentary medicine" can also be combined with other
alternative medical systems like acupressure, acupuncture,
reflexology, magnet therapy, naturopathy and also
The book has also suggested ways to check obesity. It
says, "obesity, lack of muscle tone and stubborn areas of fat
will respond to physical message, especially areas of fat when
used with essential oils. These have a stimulating effect on
metabolism, such as grape fruit oil for gall bladder, juniper
for kidneys, lemon orange for liver. A lemongrass blend or a
jumper blend used in regular massage of thighs and buttocks has
a very toning and slimming effect".....
Just remember that all essential oils must be thinned with a
base oil to prevent burning the skin.
You may not be able to find anyone at home who is willing to
give a massage. Everyone is so busy. Or you may be
embarrassed by your own body and not want someone else to see
you. So, you just do the massage yourself. Visit your local
health food store to pick up some essential oils or buy them on
line. Use a firm hand and some soothing music.
If your budget will stand it and you have access to a local
massage spa, give yourself a real treat. They usually stock a
selection of essential oils that you can pick from.
