Cellulite is the unsightly dimpling that comes from built-up fatty deposits under the skin. At least 90% of women have cellulite, which often appears on the buttocks, thighs, hips, under the arms and sometimes on the tummy.
Cellulite is caused over time when the tissues in certain parts of the body deteriorate. When poor circulation in these areas occurs, the fatty tissue is damaged.
There are a variety of cellulite treatments to choose from, including cellulite body wraps, herbal creams and lotions, sea salt baths, herbal supplements and essential oils.
Types of Herbs
Some of the best herbal essential oils to use are: fucus (kelp), gotu kola, coffee or guarana, juniper berry, lemon and lemongrass. Use any one or a combination of these herbs by applying to desired area. Coffee must be ground up and mixed with a lotion or cream first.
Many cellulite treatments are marketed as providing long-term results. Using herbal wraps, oils, supplements, etc. can help tremendously to reduce cellulite, but it is more effective to use a combination of methods.
Long Term Methods
Combine herbal oils, wraps, drinking 8 to 10 glasses of water per day, using a dry brush on cellulite areas in the morning and evening, eating a good diet low in saturated fats and exercising a few times a week to attain lasting results.
