Note: Not all essential oil brands are the same, and you get what you pay for. If you expect to achieve results similar to those described in this testimonial, then ensure that you are using oils from pesticide-free plants. Also, the brand should use 100% pure, high-quality essential oils that do not contain any synthetic additives. Do your own research or ask a trusted friend to find a brand that is reputable. Buyer beware.

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 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 improve.

In looking up oils for cellulite, I noticed that different sites would list different oils. I realized that each oil has several different properties and can be used for many different purposes.

I started checking 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 help with the flu and colds.

These oils are: Cinnamon, Clove, Cypress, Lemon, Rosemary, Eucalyptus, Juniper, Geranium, Grapefruit, Frankincense, Myrrh, Tea tree, Patchouli

In my research the oils that I compiled that are good for spider and varicose veins are: Cypress, Lavender, Cedar, Frankincense, Geranium, Chamomile, Tea tree, Lemon, Lime, Rosemary, Palmarosa, Marjoram, Ginger, Yarrow, Carrot seed, Juniper, Lemongrass, Helichrysum, Black pepper, Birch

My recipe for spider veins I've been using is:

In 2 oz of carrier oil mix:

* 10 drops Cypress
* 10 drops Lavender
* 10 drops Geranium
* 10 drops Tea Tree
* 5 drops Lemon
* 2 drops Frankincense

In my research the oils that are helpful for cellulite are: Lavender, Geranium, Lemon, Juniper, Grapefruit, Rosemary, Cypress, Cedar, Patchouli, Clary Sage, Black pepper, Basil, Lemongrass, Sage, Thyme, Fennel,

My first cellulite recipe was:

In 4 oz of carrier oil I put 20 drops each of:

Lavender, Geranium. Lemon, Juniper, Grapefruit, Rosemary, Cypress, Cedar and Patchouli

My new cellulite recipe in 4 oz of carrier oil is:

* 22 drops Lemon,
* 40 drops Grapefruit
* 22 drops Juniper
* 22 drops Rosemary
