Aromatherapy for Weight Loss

Aromatherapy for Weight Loss

Aromatherapy for weight loss you ask?  You can use aromatherapy to help with everything from acne to depression to weight loss. Not to mention stress relief!   Surprisingly, lemongrass and lavender essential oil’s are used also as a form of aromatherapy to help contribute in weight loss.

Lemongrass Aromatherapy Benefits

Lemongrass can be used to relieve

  • Muscle Pain
  • Ward Off Insects
  • Reduce Body Aches
  • Externally to Kill Bacteria

Lavender

The soothing scent of lavender can not just relieve headache pain and achy muscles, it can interrupt a complex hormonal process in which not getting enough sleep and having too many aches and pains can keep you hungry all the time. The soothing scent of lavender can give you just the edge you need to lose all the weight your diet and exercise plan allow.

And the best way to use aromatherapy for weight loss is with an aromatherapy nebulizer?

What is a nebulizer for aromatherapy? Basically, it’s a tiny compressor with a fan. The fan blows air across a well holding essential oils. Tiny droplets of essential oil enter a coiled tube. As they are blown around and around the coils of the tube, they get smaller and smaller. When they are blown out of the open end of the coil, the invisible droplets are so fine that they immediately fill a room with healing scent.

Nebulizer

A nebulizer is the best way to enjoy all the benefits of essential oils every hour of every day. Here are five reasons you should buy this most effective of all aromatherapy machines.

1. A nebulizer releases the right amount of essential oil into the air every hour of the day, not too much, not too little. Usually the machine runs just 30 minutes every two hours so your home is not overwhelmed by scent.

2. This useful home health device isn’t just used for lavender. Lemon and grapefruit scents also may activate the nerve cells that carry the message to fat cells telling them to burn more fat, faster. Their scents won’t melt your pounds way, but they will make it easier to lose weight and keep on losing weight on a reduced-calorie diet without hitting the dreaded “weight loss plateau.”

3. A nebulizer can be just what you need to get over a lingering case of flu or a long-lasting cold. When you are through using your vaporizer, then your nebulizer is just what you need to get the ongoing respiratory relief you need.

4. This machine may help your children get good grades. Lemon oil, particularly, helps children and teens study more efficiently. It can also give them greater stamina for taking tests.

5. A nebulizer can even ease the lives of older people. There’s a lot about getting old that is frustrating. Lavender, jasmine, and bergamot therapy can help older people feel more “at home.” It can ease agitation and, in seniors who suffer dementia, prevent them from leaving the home without letting anyone know where they are going.

Ingenious Machines

These ingenious machines make the most of expensive essential oils, operate for 2 to 3 weeks without any attention from you, and deliver healing therapy 24/7. A nebulizer in every room may be just the thing you need in your home for optimum health for every member of the family.  Wanted to share this fun article from Natural Living Ideas, to get the upmost use out of your essential oils and aromatherapy.  50 Essential Oil Recipes

Moksha Hot Yoga

Moksha Hot Yoga was founded in Toronto, Canada in 2004 by yoga teachers Ted Grand and Jessica Robertson. Though a relative newcomer, this style has quickly gained popularity as over 30 affiliated studios have since opened worldwide, including in Canada, the United States, Switzerland, and the Caribbean. The Moksha method is a set series of about 40 poses done in a hot room. The associated studios follow strict “green” standards for keeping their spaces environmentally friendly, including using sustainable building materials and natural cleansers.

They are also committed to offering weekly low-cost classes and karma yoga opportunities to keep yoga classes more affordable. In September, 2013, Moksha changed the name of its U.S. studios to Modo Yoga.
