I have another reader question that I would like to discuss today. Anna asked if I would help her with more information on how to lose weight with patchouli essential oil. First, Anna, there is no wonder drug or essential oil that will help you to eat less. It is really about self control and your own mindset that you want to change your body through diet and exercise. Visualize a piece of meat and imagine cutting and separating the fat from the lean part. If your diet consists of fruits, vegetables, fish and meat, your body tissue will look like the lean cut of meat. On the other hand, if you eat cakes and sweets, potatoes smothered in butter and fatty meats, you body tissue will be like the fatty part.
There are many essential oils that help fight fat but Anna asked abut patchouli which can help dieters in several ways. First, it has the ability to diminish your appetite. Regularly put 2-3 drops of patchouli into a diffuser and let it diffuse through the air to reduce your appetite. This is a good way to balance the diet and exercise program you are on. You can also put 8-10 drops of patchouli into your bath water. This will not only help you to reduce your appetite, it may also ease water retention and bloating. Massaging your body with 1 ounce of a good carrier oil containing 2-3 drops of patchouli will also ease water retention and help you tone your body as your diet and exercise program help you lose weight. Anna, I hope this is helpful to you and to any others interested in losing weight.
