Meanwhile, I've been working hard at learning the ropes of having my own business. I've been using the oils every day with great results! My biggest wow is doTerra's metabolic blend called Slim & Sassy. A combo of peppermint, ginger, cinnamon, lemon, and grapefruit oils, this blend can be taken internally or used externally as well. I began a 30-day challenge on the 17th and only 9 days later, I have lost inches and pounds! Not a lot, since I am not much over my normal weight, but I am so happy with the quick results!
How does it work? Well, it detoxes your cells. It goes in and eats through the toxins stored in your body as fat/cellulite. You take drops in water 20-30 minutes before you eat and it speeds up your metabolism while decreasing how hungry you are. Believe me, it really does! When I take it in the morning, I have to watch, or I will forget to eat! Skipping meals and eating processed foods is a no-no. Eating good quality protein, fresh greens, staying away from flour and sugar, and drinking plenty of good water is also key to this oil blend doing it's job - and fast! Some people get great results just from changing their diet. How much more when adding an oil that helps your metabolism?!
For me, I began doing just 5 drops twice a day. Wednesday afternoon and Thursday evening I did it a little bit different. I took 5 drops in the morning, then later on I put 5 drops in a small spray bottle with a little bit of water and fractionated coconut oil. I sprayed this on the areas I wanted to loose size. Next, I took stretch-tite and firmly wrapped where I had sprayed. Left this for four hours both times. I measured less than before where I did the wrap! In four hours! Like, an inch and a half in around one place and an inch and four eighths in another. WHOOP WHOOP! This is SO doable, folks. $26 a bottle retail, less if you buy wholesale or get it in a kit.
I will keep ya'll in the know as to how I'm doing over the 21 days I have left. I am so excited to see what results I will have by then!
