Other Oils for Weight Loss

Grapefruit essential oil actually works with your body in activating enzymes that help your body break down brown body fat. When applied topically to the skin in small amounts, grapefruit essential oil is an excellent diuretic and lymphatic stimulant. When mixed with patchouli oil, grapefruit oil is known to lower cravings and hunger, which makes it a great tool to lose weight fast in a healthy way. Add several drops to your water, diffuse it in your office or home, or massage some onto your chest and wrists when a craving strikes.

Cinnamon oil has been shown to help regulate blood glucose levels and something in your body called GTF, glucose tolerance factor. For that reason, cinnamon oil is also fantastic for anybody with diabetes. It helps balance blood sugar, which long-term will help with weight loss and help reduce those cravings for sugar.

Ginger oil works because it also reduces sugar cravings and helps reduce inflammation in the body. The compounds in ginger are called gingerols which have been proven to reduce disease-causing inflammation in your intestines and overall improve absorption of the vitamins and minerals you’re consuming.
