How to treat cellulite using essential oils

Cellulite can be defined as fat cells that accumulate in certain areas of our body such as the hip, legs, belly and others. Aqueous, adipose, mixed or fibrous as it might be, in any case you need to know its characteristics before treating it. Oral consumption and body massage with anti-cellulite essential oils are part of the best ways to effectively get rid of it. For this second option, a blend with other vegetable oils is advocated in order not to irritate the skin. In this case, neutral vegetable oils such as argan oil, sweet almond oil, grape seed oil, macadamia and hazelnut oil are highly recommended.

palpate-roll massage with essential oils to fight celluliteBiohöma advice


For palpate-roll massage, make a solution of geranium essential oil mixed with grapefruit essential oil, eucalyptus dives essential oil, calophyla vegetable oil and apricot kernel vegetable oil to decrease the skin dimpling appearance while boosting lymphatic and venous circulation.
Above all, the palpate-roll technique is intended for manual massage though it is possible to use a machine available in the market. It consists of a series of pinches on the epidermis starting from the bottom to the top, which subsequently knead the skin, improve the tissues’ elasticity and activate circulation in the body. Of course, the outcome could be more effective with the contributions of essential oils. But care must be taken as this type of massage is not suitable for people with circulation problems or injured skin.
