We will know and love essential oils for their aroma and the many benefits these tiny bottled oils come with. However, what most of us don’t know or even consider is its effect on us to lose body fat. Yeah, I, too, was surprised when I first got to learn about this.
I have laid out a few essential oils that will aid you in losing weight, amongst other things:
Table of Contents
1. Grapefruit Oil
This excellent essential oil helps in diminishing fat through activating enzymes that will break down fat. Plus, the essential oil is extracted from the peel of the fruit. This is relevant because the peel comes abundant in D-limonene, which aids in skyrocketing your metabolism, meaning more fat gets burned while in your resting state.
2. Lemon Oil
Lemon Oil breaks down fat in a rather interesting way. What it does is, stimulates the neurological function that is involved in breaking down fat.
Lemon Oil has other uses as well that indirectly affects the whole fat burning process. Like lifting your mood up and inducing tranquility. It is also known to be a benefactor of healthy digestion.

3. Cinnamon Oil
A fun thing about regulating weight through cinnamon oil is that it balances your blood sugar level. Now, the question may be how that helps us? It merely kills or, at least, lowers your sugar cravings.
If you are still not convinced that this is good enough, then think of the long term effect. Reduced cravings will help you to form a healthy habit of cutting sugar out entirely. This will help lower your chances of developing diabetes.
4. Ginger Oil
Ginger oil aids with fat loss by helping us absorb all nutrients efficiently, which is excellent for digestion, elevates our base metabolism and reinforces absorption. And all this adds up to more efficient cellular energy distribution, which adds up to diminishing fat, solely through our normal bodily functions.
Other than weight loss, ginger oil has other benefits, like reducing inflammation in our body, also provides us with a lot of antioxidants. Again, these too aid in weight loss.
5. Peppermint oil
This is hands down my favorite oil to use, and relatively popular among the masses as well. The first help you will receive from this wonderful smelling essential oil is boosted levels of energy, which will fuel you throughout your workout sessions.
Peppermint operates in other functions of the body that can help you reap similar benefits. Like helping you recover fast from your DOMS- Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness.
Another significant effect you can hope to reap is reduced hunger. Again this too will aid you in losing fat.
Now for the benefit that makes peppermint oil, my go-to-essential oil is the cooling and soothing sensation that comes with this oil. Simply amazing.
Nothing is greater at shredding belly fat than diet and exercise. However, most of us lose motivation when we fail to see visible changes right away.
However when we take aid from all the small things like essential oil, you can expect to see faster results, and all while smelling and feeling good. So go get your aromatherapy in order.
