There is no easy way to lose weight. But with essential oils it can be much easier to get your body over that plateau or hump it's been struggling with. Dealing with obesity is more than working out.  Many things, such as our digestive health, our stress levels, our habits and lifestyle, as well as diet and exercise, and anything that may be compounding our efforts, such as candida, our immunity, underlying health issues, emotional or spiritual strain, etc. To look at any one of these things without taking into account the rest usually leads to the frustrating experience so many deal with: weight loss that just doesn't happen or that they can't sustain.

Essential oils makes losing weight and dealing with obesity much easier.  

Unlike other "weight loss supplements" there is no caffeine, no sugars, nothing artificial (flavors, colors or preservatives) found in essential oils, and it creates no side effects (except maybe skin sensitivity in some people).

When coupled with a holistic approach, using essential oils can help you address many of these things. Therapeutic grade essential oils are known to have a positive affect on the physical well-being, can address emotions and stress, and impacts our inner work that is undoubtedly tied to everything we do or struggle with.

Using these oils separately is a possibility, but it's the unique proportions of speciality blends, as well as the quality of the oils themselves, that make the difference in the therapeutic support they offer. Be sure to find a brand you trust that offers a high-quality focus blend.

The essential oils for weight loss found in many popular blends are below. You can click on the link to each oil and read more about its specific properties and benefits as well:
