Essential Oils for Weight Loss by Phytopia*
Using essential oils for weight loss is becoming more popular. It can be much safer than pills or questionable diet fads.
Phytopia has developed a blend of carrier and essentials oils that can help you lose weight by curbing your appetite.
It is a natural way to control cravings and help you focus on eating healthy foods.
A clean diet and proper exercise (with direction from your physician) is the best way to lose weight. However, the in between meal snacks we often crave can sabotage the hard work you put towards a healthier lifestyle.
Before we take a look at what’s inside this oil blend I have a confession to make.
When Phytopia reached out to me to review this product, I immediately tried to formulate the best way to write a negative review.
Usually when I do not like a product, I simply don’t write about it at all. But I agreed to write a review and I was not going to write a dishonest one.
Before I gave the product a chance, I just could not fathom how applying an oil topically would control my appetite. My sweet tooth is ridiculous. Most days I am resolved to run a few extra miles because there is no way I can say no to my ice cream appetizer before dinner every night.
Now that my confession is out and my concious is clear, let’s take a look at what’s inside this blend of essential oils for weight loss!
This blend does not contain synthetic fragrances or harsh chemicals. It consists only of the following blend of organic carrier and essential oils.
- Organic Carrier Oils: Olive Virgin, Sunflower, Evening Primrose, Jojoba
- Organic Essential Oils: Juniperberry, Grapefruit, Fennel Sweet, Lemon Green, Rosemary CT Cineole, Cypress, Michelia Alba, Geranium China
Essential Oils for Weight Loss: Benefits and Uses
This oil is formulated to control your appetite. Each individual essential oil offers its own contribution to stop cravings and help you manage your weight.
Since this oil blend contains carrier oils, you can apply the oil neat. For optimum results apply on your skin and massage the oil on your belly, hips and thighs. You can also add 3 to 5 drops to your bath water.
Using the Slim Way oil regularly (once or twice throughout the day) will prove to be most effective.
This oil penetrates quickly into my skin but if your concerned about feeling greasy, massage 15 minutes before bathing.
The consistency of the oil is light and leaves my skin feeling moisturized and soft.
Be sure to keep the rim clean and the bottle tightly closed to prevent oil from spoiling before its expected shelf life.
Consult a doctor first if you are pregnant or have physical trauma.
My Thoughts on Essential Oil for Weight Loss
I opt to use the Slim Way oil after my shower. I apply it liberally to the recommended areas of the body and to my amazement, it works!!!
Initially my thoughts were that I would have to use it for several days or pour half of the bottle all over me. 🙂 I know my appetite and how hard it is to control my cravings.
Day one I could tell a difference. I apply a liberal amount of oil in the morning and it controlled by cravings all day. Later that evening I headed to the freezer for some vanilla ice cream (as is my routine). I had to stop myself mid step because I realized I didn’t have a taste for it. It was crazy! 🙂
I was able to opt for fruit instead and did not have that feeling of deprivation that I normally have. Most days I will eat my veggies and follow up with ice cream. Terrible.
The only down side to the Slim Way oil is the fragrance. It puts me in the mind of black licorice. However, it is something that I can overlook because this blend of essential oils for weight loss works. I would rather deal with an unfavorable scent than have the product altered with artificial ingredients.
I appreciate that Phytopia labels each bottle with a manufacture date. The shelf life is 36 months if kept in a cool and dry place. I received my order in April and the manufacture date is January of the same year.
This product is for external use only. I can add some drops to a diffuser necklace but I would not recommend it for use in a diffuser.
I can’t believe I’m writing this, but I give Phytopia’s Slim Way for weight loss, two thumbs up!
