Anti – Cellulite Oil
Using a double boiler and gentle heat over 5 hours (see infused oil info on our website for more in depth instructions on creating herbally infused oils).
Place 1 part Calendula Flowers, 1 part Rosemary, 1 part Juniper Berries and 2 parts Birch Leaf (all dried herbs), cover with Sweet Almond Oil and heat as per instructions, stirring occasionally for 5 hours.
NOTE: It is very important not to heat the herbs and oil at too high a temperature, turn heat off and on often to maintain a very gentle heat throughout the processing time.
Strain the mixture through several layers of muslin and add Rosemary Oleoresin to assist with shelf life of the oil. (10 drops to 500mls, or adjust to suit your volume.)
Then add to each 100ml of oil blend:
– 5 drops Juniper pure essential oil
– 5 drops Lemon pure essential oil
– 5 drops Rosemary pure essential oil
– 8 drops coffee pure essential oil
Shake well to combine and massage well into body areas holding fluid (cellulite) twice daily.
Taking the following herbal tea regularly will also assist with reducing cellulite from tissues.
