Cinnamon Is The Magic Spice That Will Help You Get Rid Of The Embarrassing Presence Of Cellulite
When we ask the question where does our body store toxins? The answer is –in fat. This is sad, but also true. Therefore, to help get rid of the embarrassing presence of cellulite, it is crucial to remove the toxins accumulated in our bodies. Without taking action, the storage of toxins will just grow, making cellulite more bad looking as time passes.
According to one CNN article, cellulite is the issue that concerns 90% of women. Dermatologists from the University of Grenoble inform that the extract of cinnamon can be very effective in eliminating cellulite. In the experiment participated 80 women with cellulite problem. Half of the women were treated with special anti-cellulite massages and masks, while the rest were exposed to treatment with cinnamon oil. The result was that in the first group cellulite was reduced for 10% and in the second group for 60%
To get the most of the cinnamon benefits include this amazing spice in your daily diet. Sprinkle it over your oatmeal or cereals, or add it in your favorite smoothie, tea or coffee.
Cinnamon has some rather unexpected qualities. It’s a proven antibacterial, anti-fungal and antimicrobial substance. Doesn’t just go great on cakes!
It also has astringent properties similar to that of Witch Hazel, that means it helps firm skin, and clear blemishes. It’s perfect for areas of high cellulite because its astringent properties help tighten those areas.
Cinnamon is rich in benefiting minerals like Iron, calcium and Magnesium that help keep skin healthy.
Furthermore, cinnamon actually helps local blood circulation and consequently helps spread the distribution of cellulite making it the perfect addition in a body butter. It helps remove blood impurities reducing inflammation and is also recommended for acne. It’s quite possibly the ultimate cellulite busting ingredient to ever go into a body butter! We’ve also added Witch Hazel, again it’s primarily because of it’s astringent properties, and also it’s abiltiy to hydrate the skin for extensive time periods, that it makes the cut for this exclusive recipe.
We also included Vitamin E, which is the go to remedy for acne and operation scars. It’s known for reducing the harsh appearance of scars and so it makes a great addition to a cellulite body butter where those areas are often accompanied by stretch marks and pimpled skin.
So here’s our method for making homemade Cinnamon body butter for Cellulite:
Now you can mix and match here, and leave either the Shea or Cocoa (just one) from the mixture and you can also leave out vitamin E if you like, but the other ingredients are pretty much essential for it to be useful.
- 100 grams coconut oil (Where on earth do I buy that?)
- 50 grams cocoa butter
- 50 grams Shea butter
- 50 ml witch hazel.
- 1 tablespoon vitamin E oil (buy high quality here)
- 30 drops of Cinnamon Oil
- A whole Cinnamon Stick (crushed)
1) On the Hob, gently warm the cocoa butter and Shea Butter on a low to medium heat in a pan until it becomes liquid.
2) Slowly stir in the coconut oil for about a minute, then turn off the heat and let the mixture cool for 10 – 20 minutes. Don’t let it set fast!
3) As soon as it starts to cool, add the Cinnamon Oil, vitamin E and Witch Hazel.
4) Now, whip the mixture until it becomes light and fluffy. Break pieces of the cinnamon stick into the mixture.
Place it into an air-tight container, otherwise it will lose its consistency.
Use the body butter generously, and apply up to three times a day. You should be able to get some good results after a month of so. Additionally, massaging the affected area of cellulite helps to increase blood flow and also to help reduce any excess build up by distributing the cells evenly.
