Do you suffer with cellulite? Maybe you just have a little patch of it under your bottom or if you’re a guy maybe you have the cottage cheese on your belly!!
Yikes, I can’t stand cottage cheese (another name for cellulite). It’s so ugly and can be hard o get rid of especially when sufferers keep drinking cellulite causing soda, refined starches and junk food. Although there are many supplements that help with cellulite I wanted to share an herbal bath that when done frequently can make a difference. But I must add that exercise is very important to eliminate and prevent cellulite in addition to a well-balanced diet.
You will need:
5 drops of essential oil of rosemary
5 drops of essential oil of lavender
3 drops of essential oil of cypress
2 drops of essential oil of juniper
2 teaspoons of almond oil
2 teaspoons of raw honey
1 teaspoon of vodka or rum
1 cup of epsom salts
Fill up your bathtub half way with warm to hot water and pour in salts, mix until dissolved. Mix all your oils, honey and alcohol together then once mixed pour into the bathtub. Now get in, relax and massage the areas with cellulite which will help break down the fatty deposits. Do this for about 20 minutes. Once your done soaking and massaging come out and dry lightly. Moisturize with a natural non toxic lotion or with organic Shea butter. You can add in 2 drops of each of the oils used above before applying moisturizer for better results.
Rosemary and Lavender have been used by many to pamper and condition the skin while cypress and juniper exert a diuretic action which results in reduced water retention. The salts help aid the body in toxin elimination and work well to relax muscles.
Enjoy this bath 2 to 3 times a week.
