Essential oils can help prevent cellulite by removing toxins that accumulate in the fat calls. Combined with an exfoliant, they also help promote blood circulation, allowing the skin to regenerate. Look for essential oils that have antiseptic, diuretic and astringent qualities, renowned to flush toxins and improve the tone and elasticity of the skin, which are key in preventing and improving the appearance of cellulite.

The best way to use essential oils to help prevent cellulite is to dilute a few drops in your favourite carrier oil and massage into the skin using your hand or a brush. You can also add a few drops to a homemade body scrub and massage into the skin in circular motion.

Here are some of the best essential oils to help detoxify, tone and regenerate the skin:

Geranium

Geranium doesn’t only have a beautiful aroma, but it is also renowned to improve skin health and beauty. An effective antiseptic, tonic and diuretic, Geranium is an essential oil of choice when it comes to preventing and improving the appearance of cellulite. It can effectively remove dead cells, improve skin tone and complexion, as well as promoting the regeneration of skin cells. It is also great to balance hormones! Add a few drops to your favourite carrier oil and massage into the skin.

Lemongrass

Lemongrass is both an energising and calming oil offering a variety of uses and benefits. It helps to flush toxins and enhance blood circulation, as well as reducing fluid retention. Its astringent and antiseptic properties promote healthy and radiant skin. To use on the skin, mix a few drops with a carrier oil and massage in a circular motion. You can also add a few drops to a warm bath.

Grapefruit

Grapefruit essential oil is renowned for its powerful detoxifying properties, combined with its ability to improve blood circulation and metabolism. It has a beneficial effect on the lymphatic system by removing toxins and decreasing fluid retention, promoting regeneration of cells. Add a few drops to jojoba oil and massage in the affected area daily.

Rosemary

Rosemary is a great addition to a daily skin care routine due its antioxidant properties. It helps to relieve skin congestion by removing impurities due to its powerful antibacterial, antiseptic and astringent qualities. It is also great to improve the tone and elasticity of the skin. Add a few drops to your favourite natural body scrub or carrier oil and massage into the skin.

Fennel

Fennel essential oil has strong diuretic properties, which improves the elimination of toxins by decreasing water retention. It is best when blended with other essential oils such as rosemary. Mix 2 drops of fennel essential oil with 2 drops of rosemary essential oil in 3 tablespoon of Jojoba oil and massage into the affected area twice per week.

Juniper

Juniper is a natural antiseptic and anti-inflammatory with a plethora of skin enhancing qualities. It acts as a natural skin toner and reduces apparent skin blemishes. Juniper essential oil helps improve blood circulation and decrease water retention, effectively regulating the accumulation of toxins in the body. Add a few drops to jojoba or coconut oil and massage directly into the skin.
