Warning: Not all essential oil brands are the same quality. If you expect to achieve results similar to those described in this testimonial, then ensure that the oil you are using is made from pesticide-free plants grown in optimal conditions. Also, the brand should be a 100% pure, high-quality essential oil that does not contain any synthetic additives. Do your own research or ask trusted friends to find a brand that is reputable.

I, Ayse Zencir, have been using essential oils for a year now. I fell in love with them. My best personal testimony is my weight loss.

I used to drink Grapefruit-oiled water every day, 7 drops in 8 cups of water. Now my size is 5-6. I used to wear size 10-12. Let me inform you of my recipe: I add 7 drops of Grapefruit essential oil into 2 liters of water and shake it very well. One or two hours before every meal, I drink 2-3 cups of the Grapefruit-oiled water. All day I drink only this oiled water.

In a month you may feel the results, but you may not see any weight change until after 2 months. Keep trying! Everybody has a different body. Some of you may need to run to the toilet, and some may be constipated. It may vary person to person.

You may feel dizzy or have rapid heartbeats or a headache, so it is good to start with 1-2 drops each day for the first week.

Note: Grapefruit juice has been known to interact with some medications, especially hormonal medications. Grapefruit essential oil is extracted from the Grapefruit peel. I have been unable to find any documented cases of interactions with Grapefruit essential oil. Still check for contraindications with your current medications and consult with your doctor before proceeding.
