Essential oils have been used for centuries to help manage, prevent and cure common complaints and ailments, and in recent years, their power has been backed by my science. The potency of essential oils when it comes to helping with weight loss and management cannot be undersold--but it also cannot be understated that they are not magic bullets. 

Certain essential oils aid in fat loss, but they will only provide minimal to no effect if they are your only fat loss strategy. A balanced diet featuring predominantly whole, clean foods, regular exercise and a lifestyle that prioritizes adequate rest and limited stress will deliver the lion's share of your fat loss. There is absolutely no getting around this, so if you’re eating like crap, not getting enough sleep and chronically skipping your sweat sessions, then these oils aren’t going to help much. Before you pick up an oil, you need to be whipping up healthy meals, logging in toSweatflixand smashing out your workouts (you can sign up for 30 days FREE now, or use promo code '50OFF' for 50% off 3 months) and make sure your practicing consistent self-care all around. 

If you do all this and employ the power of these essential oils to bolster your efforts, you’ll see results.

So, with a solid grasp on what to realistically expect from using essential oils for fat loss, let's get to the list. 

The 3 Best Essential Oils for Fat Loss

Peppermint 

When ingested with water, pepperminthas been shown to increase your mental alertness and energy, which can help you perform better and work harder during your training sessions. Peppermint can also be used topically with a carrier oil (like coconut, olive oil or grapeseed oil) to soothe sore muscles, so you can recover better and get back to work sooner. 

Lemon 


Studies show that breathing in lemon essential oil improves the body's neurological activity that encourages the breakdown of body fat, making it an incredibly potent essential oil for fat loss. The scent of lemon can also promote calmness and good vibes, so keep a bottle on hand for when you need a pick-me-up.


Grapefruit 

This essential oil for fat loss is probably not a surprise. Grapefruit has long been lauded as a fat loss miracle. While perhaps not miraculous, has beenscientifically shown to activate enzymes that breakdown fat. Thank this fruit's D-limonene, which supports a robust metabolism. Studiesalso show that grapefruit essential oil can reduce appetite. 

Are there other essential oils for fat loss? Sure, but these three are the best and they're the ones that work most directly and effectively to support your fat loss goals. 

If you're thinking of trying any of these essential oils, it's crucial that you use 100% pure essential oils. There should be no additives like perfumes. Also, keep in mind that not all essential oils can besafely ingested, even if they are 100% pure.

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. There is an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as online shopping has skyrocketed, due to store closures and stay-at-home mandates. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 1-2 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. Thanks for your support and understanding.

Are you in Canada? Specifically, are you outside of a metropolitan centre? We need to alert you to a disruption in shipping due to COVID-19. Our preferred shipping provider, UPS, has informed us that they cannot guarantee express shipping for many locations. We have also seen that packages delivered to Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, etc, are not waylaid, but packages delivered to areas just outside of these cities are being held in transit for days or even weeks. UPS has discontinued their guarantee of 1-4 day delivery, which you can read more about here. Therefore, we can guarantee early fulfillment but not early delivery of our goods from our warehouse to your door at this time.

We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping (whichever is faster) with our partners at UPS. Once your order has been processed successfully we try to have your shipment prepared within 1-2 business days, and it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse.

We currently DO NOT SHIP to locations outside of the US and Canada. We DO NOT ship to a P.O. Box number.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Sometimes delivery can be delayed by circumstances out of our control, like postal & custom delays, back-ordered products or incorrectly entered shipping addresses. If there is a delay at Customs, a representative of UPS may contact you to provide your identification in order to receive your package. Please do this ASAP: Customers will be responsible for any additional shipping fees for failure to provide the required information to release a shipment.

Make sure when checking out and paying for your order that all of your information entered is correct! If you notice a mistake in your address, please try to contact us before your order is processed for shipping to avoid any missed shipments or delays. As soon as we process your order for shipping, you will receive a shipping confirmation email that contains your UPS tracking number. You can head on over to the UPS Website to see where your products are. Note: tracking information may take 1-2 business days to be updated in the UPS system

If you are not home when your package is delivered, BodyRock is NOT responsible if it is stolen. Please contact us if this happens to you and we will provide you with all the information needed to take the next steps.
