The 5 best essential oils for weight loss

For thousands of years, people have toured the healing properties of essential oils for everything from minor pain to severe depression. Although studies on the efficacy of these oils are often limited, there is evidence that certain oils have medicinal properties. Essential oils are distilled and pressed from plants and remain in their purest, most raw form. Because of this, they are often perceived as a natural alternative to traditional medicine. If you are trying to lose extra pounds, you can consider adding essential oils to your weight loss plan. Essential oils may provide you with a number of additional benefits.

How can essential oils help in losing weight?

Essential oils can improve your diet and training schedule in several ways.

They can give your training a boost.

They can also help curb cravings for food.

While essential oils can not directly promote weight loss, they can improve your diet and training schedule in several ways. For example, essential oils such as lavender can promote better sleep and relieve insomnia. If you sleep enough, you are more likely to have a productive day. This includes having more energy to exercise and less desire to eat sugary foods. People who are tired, generally more often grab for unhealthy snacks or fast food that can give an instant sugar storm.

Some oils can also help:

reduce anxiety

relieves the voltage

Reducing feelings of depression

relieves pain in the body

improve digestion

The idea is that if you feel mentally and physically well, you are better able to stick to your weight loss goals. This may mean that you keep track of your training routine or reach for fruit instead of sweet sweets.

Research is needed to really determine efficacy in humans, as well as the possible benefits and risks of using essential oils. But although research is limited, there are some studies that support the use of essential oils for weight loss.

Some essential oils that are used for help in losing weight include:


In a 2014 study, researchers studied the chemical compounds found in juniper essential oil. They found out that the oil has rich anti-obesity and antioxidant properties.

Although there is no research that directly assesses the use of juniper essential oil for weight loss, this evidence suggests that it can be a useful tool in the management of weight loss. It is thought that the oil reduces water retention, so local application is perhaps the best approach.


Long used in Asia due to its medicinal effects, essential oil of sage can also help in treating or preventing obesity. A 2013 study found that essential oil of sage can help protect the body from oxidative stress. This stress can lead to conditions such as obesity, diabetes, a weakened immune system and more.


In a 2014 animal study, researchers found that garlic essential oil provides many protective properties. This includes helping reduce the increase in body weight.

Using essential oils for weight loss

If you want to add essential oils to your weight loss plan, you should first consult your doctor. They can work with you to assess whether this is the right option for you and discuss any risks.

Topical application is the best choice when using essential oils for weight loss. Depending on the oil used, this can help you reduce water retention and bloating or reduce the appearance of cellulite and stretch marks.

Be sure to dilute the essential oil of your choice with a carrier oil before applying. Applying undiluted essential oil to your skin can cause inflammation or irritation. Some carrier oils contain coconut and olive oil. You need to add one ounce of carrier oil to every 12 drops of essential oil.

It is important to conduct a skin plaster test with this mixture before applying it completely. The skin on the inside of your forearm is generally the best place to do this. Wait 24 hours and note any symptoms you may experience. If you do not experience irritation or discomfort, then the mixture should be safe to use.

Risk and warnings


These oils should not be taken.

Undiluted essential oil can cause irritation and inflammation.

You may be more susceptible to sunburn when used.

Although essential oils are generally considered safe, there are a few things to consider.

Essential oils should not be taken. These oils are super powerful, and even a few drops can already cause serious gastrointestinal discomfort. If you get essential oil inside and get a side effect, seek medical help. Never use undiluted essential oil, as this can cause inflammation and irritation. You should always do a patch test to determine how your skin will react to the diluted essential oil.

If you are pregnant or breast-feeding, consult your doctor before use.

You should also wear sunscreen if you use topical oils. They can make your skin more sensitive to the sun and are more likely to burn.

Other ways to lose weight

The most common way to lose weight is to follow a healthy and balanced diet. It should be rich in antioxidants, healthy fats and clean proteins.

Healthy fats are generally found in oils and foods such as avocados, fruits and vegetables. Clean proteins are beans and meat that is not fried or breaded.

You also need to add exercise to your daily routine to burn calories. Deficiency of calories can lead to weight loss. The World Heart Association recommends 30 minutes daily activity at least five times a week. This can be anything from hearty walking to gardening and cycling.

You can also add weightlifting to your routine to create muscles, which burn more calories than fat.

If these do not work, consult your doctor. They can assess your current plan for weight loss and help you restructure it if necessary. In some cases, they can also recommend an operation for weight loss.

A common option is liposuction, in which the fat is removed from your body. LAP band, stomach diversion and stomach sleeve operations are becoming increasingly popular. All of them can be quite invasive, and you should expect a long recovery time.

What you can do now

If you want to start including essential oils in your weight loss plan, contact your network. Talk to your friends, family and colleagues, because you may encounter someone who sells them personally. They can help in answering questions and removing your concerns. You can also go to a food store. They usually offer a range of oils to choose from. Read all side effects carefully and look for “therapeutic quality” on the label.
