Essential oil is one of the folk remedies for fighting cellulite. You can buy them in every pharmacy, and they are inexpensive (especially compared to the brand of anti-cellulite cosmetics). However, it is important to know what essential oils help fight "orange peel", and also how to use essential oils .
The use of essential oils helps strengthen cell membranes, to stimulate metabolism and blood circulation, normalize hydro-lipid balance and remove toxins, enhance muscle tone, elasticity and firmness of the skin. To combat cellulite you can use the following essential oils (and this is not a complete list):
Essential oils can be used in different ways, usually they are added to the hearth while taking a bath, used for massages and body wraps. Whatever method you use oil, it is very important to observe the proportions and do not use oil in its pure form: concentrated essential oils in larger quantities can cause chemical burns to the skin .
In making anti-cellulite bath we must remember that essential oils do not dissolve in water, and floating on the surface, many benefits they will bring. So you need to use emulsifiers — substances that will help to create an emulsion of water and oil. As emulsifiers there may be, say, milk, cream, yogurt. 6-10 drops of essential oil or oil mixture should be thoroughly stirred in half a glass of emulsifier, and then pour this mixture into the tub. The water temperature should be around 37 degrees, duration of procedure — 15-20 minutes. After the bath, take a cool shower.
To make anti-cellulite massage with essential oils, add 2-6 drops of essential oil or oil blend 10 ml oil-the basics. As the base oil, a variety of vegetable oils, from olive oil to wheat germ oil, can act. You can also add honey to the mixture. The mixture must be rubbed into cellulite-affected areas with vigorous movements (a sponge or a special mitten can be used).

The mixture of oils is prepared in a glass container. First, drip the oil, which need less likely. You need to prepare as much mixture as you will be using: essential oils quickly evaporate, and the mixture will lose its medicinal properties.

It is important to remember that essential oils are not a panacea. Cellulite must be comprehensive. Baths alone, wraps and massages will not help you.
