Her recipe? She mixed 50 drops of Helichrysum in 8 ounces of an all-natural lotion base and applied it to her legs for six weeks.
In 2 oz of Coconut Oil add 30 drops Cypress, 20 drops Lavender, 10 drops of any citrus Essential Oil (like Wild Orange). Apply morning and night, massaging oils into skin moving towards the heart. You will begin to see results in approximately one month!
Helichrysum and Cypress help with movement of lymph and exchange stagnant blood for new blood by constricting and dilating the blood vessels. This strengthens the vascular cell wall so they can regain elasticity and do the job they're designed to do! The citrus oil helps reduce fluid retention and the Lavender, among other things, binds all these actions together. Note, that if you're going to be out in the sun after application, leave out the citrus oil to avoid intensifying the effects of the sun.
BONUS: Cypress is also good for cellulite.
I have had cellulite on my thighs for years. I have always exercised but it doesn’t matter what my weight is, I always keep the cellulite. A few months ago I bought a bottle of doTERRA’s Cypress essential oil because a friend of mine was seeing results on her vericose veins from using it. She read that it helped with cellulite too. So I started using it; I put 2 drops of Cypress oil in the palm of my hand and 2 drops of fractionated coconut oil and mix it together and apply it to the areas where my cellulite is. I do this about twice a day. (You can do it more if you have time.) I have noticed a difference in the tone of my skin. The bumps are becoming more smooth and less wrinkly looking. I am very excited about this as you can imagine!
