I am new to essential oils. I ordered 9 different oils and have had so much fun learning about them, researching to make recipes and sharing them with friends and family.
Every where I go now people tell me how nice I smell, but I don't put the oils on to smell good, rather I've made a couple recipes I'm using daily for cellulite and varicose veins. I've received such positive comments from friends and family who I have shared oils with--people have especially liked the "sleep" recipe I made to spray on your pillow at night to help you sleep. This is my new passion--learning about essential oils and sharing them with others.
I will list the oils that I discovered are helpful for each condition, and my recipes, although I am new at this and am still learning. I just made a new recipe for my cellulite, as I discovered that I don't like the smell of geranium. I had read someone's testimony of using lemon oil for their cellulite, so I decided to make a recipe with more citrus, and cut out a couple of the other oils.
Another thing I've decided in reading about essential oils and their healing power is that it takes time. I haven't noticed any distinctive difference in my spider veins or cellulite in the 2 months I've been using them, although I have begun losing weight without changing my diet. I have a feeling the oils are helping in detoxing my body, and thus I am losing weight.
When I read that queen Esther bathed in oils for a year before coming before the king, I decided there must be a reason they used the oils for so long in ancient times--it takes time--just like it takes time for a baby to grow or a flower to bloom, I believe it takes time for our bodies to heal.
In looking up oils for cellulite, I noticed that different sites would list different oils. I realized that each oil has several different healing properties and can be used for many different purposes. I started ticking off the oils mentioned most often for cellulite or varicose veins and tried to incorporate those in my recipes, although I didn't buy every oil that was listed. In my humble beginnings I purchased the oils I decided I would need to make recipes for varicose veins, cellulite and to prevent and help heal flus and colds.
