Posted: January 6, 2010 by Cristina Proano-Carrion

Natural essential oils can help shape up your body in many ways but they can do so only when coupled with an appropriate diet and exercise plan. Essential oils accelerate the weight loss process by eliminating toxins and toning up the body so that you see faster and better results. OBSTACLE 1: Low immunity, chest congestion and inability to breathe well
  • Solution: Immune Support Essential Oil
  • Why: Supports and strengthens the immune system by fighting off germs and stimulating the activity of the organs and cells involved.
  • How: Rub 2 drops between the palms of your hands and breathe deeply.
OBSTACLE 2: Muscle pain and cramps
  • Solution: Pain Begone Body Oil and ALIVIO Andean Bath Soak
  • Why: Maintains muscle tone, alleviates pain caused by muscle cramps or swelling and improves circulation and lymphatic flow, pain relief.
  • How: For warming up the muscles, gently massage the limbs with ½ teaspoon of Pain Begone Body Oil in the direction of the heart.  After exercise, take a bath with ¼ cup of ALIVIO Andean Bath Soak and feel all your pains melt away. After bath, massage sore areas with Pain Begone Body Oil.
OBSTACLE 3: Apathy, discouragement and boredom
  • Solution: EXULTO Body Mist
  • Why: Most of us go through a lot of stress and fatigue each day. This blend of essential oils enlivens, rejuvenates and harmonizes the mind. Essential oils also support emotional well-being during difficult times and infuse mental strength and positivity to help us battle all adversities and handle stress.
  • How: When you feel down and troubled, just spray some mist over your face and body, breathe deeply and SMILE!
OBSTACLE 4: Restlessness, insomnia, stress, nervous tension and anxiety
  • Solution: Sleep Time Essential Oil
  • Why: Adequate sleep is very essential to maintain a healthy weight. Anxiety, stress and lack of sleep result in the release of a hormone called cortisol that makes us want to binge on sugary foods and promotes the accumulation of fats in our body. Cortisol also destroys muscle tissue and weakens the brain, bones and immune system.
  • How: Induce an atmosphere of peace and relaxation in your bedroom. Keep your essential oil diffuser next to your bed and breathe deeply before closing your eyes.
OBSTACLE 5: Poor muscle tone, food cravings and poor lymphatic drainage
  • Solution: CLARO Essential Oil and Detoxing Body Oil
  • Why: It is not the stomach that lets you know that you are full but your hypothalamus. Inhaling the CLARO Essential Oil Blend induces the hypothalamus to send a message to the stomach that you are no longer hungry and also triggers positive reactions in the brain. The essential oils in the Detoxing Body Oil are very effective in soothing the skin and eliminating excess water and fat in the tissues.
  • How: When you are hit by a food craving or feel like over-eating, take three sniffs of CLARO Essential Oil blend through each nostril. Massage CLARO Detoxing Body Oil over your body in a circular motion twice a day.
OBSTACLE 6: Low energy levels, fatigue and lack of concentration
