Quite an amazing change occurs the moment you mix two different essential oils together. The aroma that results when freshly scented Cypress is combined with uplifting Grapefruit is the perfect anecdote to the dreaded afternoon slump. Cypress has long been attributed with decreasing fluid retention in the body. It can also be likened to a tool used to open up a dam whether physical or emotional. This oil encourages the release of toxins from the body. When it is added to Grapefruit the two hit cellulite head on. Add a drop or two of Grapefruit and Cypress to a tablespoon of coconut oil and use topically on hips/thighs and abdomen every night. Citrus oils help to dissolve fat while Cypress increases circulation thus carrying excess waste out of the body. I suggest topical application in the evening because many citrus essential oils cause the skin to become highly sensitive to sunlight. Be cautious when working on elders or those with sensitive skin as certain citrus essential oils can burn if applied too liberally. Always work with a drop or two at first because a little goes a long way. Everybody is unique and it is smart to see how one reacts before applying more. When using this combination on the face overtime these oils will help make your skin firmer and therefore more youthful in appearance. The aroma of this duo is quite grounding and cheerful, great for meditating in the morning or winding down at night. When dealing with swelling of any kind the Cypress/Grapefruit combination is a great go to for relief. Beyond the fabulous fat busting properties of this synergy series the scent alone is extremely comforting and refreshing. Diffuse a few drops next time you’re feeling down and I can assure you the blues will wash away. Be well!
