It is hard to believe that it has been a year since I started using Essential oils to “Skinny Dip!” This is the original post that started it all!!
Let’s Go Skinny Dipping! No seriously….stay with me for a few minutes while I digress, and then I’ll share with you how I lost over an inch on my waist this morning… Skinny Dipping!
I was reading where some folks were wrapping with Trim and Tone, and getting results. So, I decided to try an experiment. Wrapping for inch loss has become a huge fad with “It Works” parties. Wrapping *works* because it is dehydrating your cells so you can quickly “spot reduce”. I can’t recommend the “It Works” wraps because, well, they DON’T work. They can and do make you think they are working because the tape measure reflects a change, but without detoxing and a solid weight management plan, it isn’t going to stay off.
The concept behind wrapping has been around forever, and so has bathing to enhance beauty. Remember Cleopatra? It is said that she bathed in goat milk, and we know that she was a user of essential oils. Bath Salts are a big business, and they are not just for relaxing…. they are for detoxing. Before Big Pharma came up with lotions and potions for wounds one of the most popular ways to help an injury heal was an Epsom Salt Soak. It still works by the way.
So, not wanting to mummify myself in plastic wrap and crinkle when I walked, I decided that maybe a good hot soak with some detoxifying and healing essential oils might be just as good or better. I applied my Moringa oil, Frankincense, Helichrysum combo to my stretch marks, then I puddled some FCO in my and and made up my own Cleopatra concoction – Frankincense, Grapefruit, Trim and Tone, and Wintergreen (to pull it into the skin deeper). I slathered myself down while the hot water was running, and I had a nice soak…. I would have enjoyed longer, but 20 mins was all I could fit in. The result was nothing short of amazing! I lost over an inch in my waist. Now, please don’t think you can go soak away all the inches because that isn’t going to happen! However, I think this is a better option than wrapping for several reasons. The additional benefits are that it was a total body detox, and I enjoyed some quiet reading time.
If you’re going to do this yourself, I’d suggest being sure you do some internal detoxing immediately after. I drank a detox “bomb” with 6-7drops of grapefruit, and 4 drops of Trim and Tone in a few ounces of water, and then followed that with more water, and my Super Mix. I am SERIOUS about shedding these last annoying 10lbs that have not budged since my miscarriage last year.
I’ll be leading from the front with the New Year, New You Competition and the MetamorphU Total Transformation Coaching program. Tonight, one of our MetamorphU PTs, Jared Gore and I will be sorting out my workout routine. Look out world, I’m getting my Healthy Sexy back!!

The pictures above are of me. I had been working diligently, all year long, to drop the last obnoxious ten pounds, but it wasn’t budging. Even when I did Green Smoothies ONLY for a full 31 days I only lost two pounds which I promptly gained back just a couple of days later. Nothing was working…. until I incorporated Essential Oils, and more specifically “Skinny Dipping”. In 8 weeks, I lost 10 lbs, not to mention the difference in the tightness of my skin, and the disappearing stretch marks.
Often the question asked is, “Does it work?” These are just a handful of examples. There are many, many more who aren’t brave enough to capture the progress on “film”. Most people lose a few inches with the first dip. Please don’t think that you can take a detox bath everyday and melt away all your fat. This is a DETOX bath, and it will support a healthy lifestyle which will in turn empower your body to melt away the fat in conjunction with a little more effort than filling a tub. Detoxing unlocks the key to activating the liver’s fat burning mechanisms.
All of us have toxins in our bodies, and most of us have livers that are overworked. #skinnydipping just takes the workload off the liver and allows it to do its secondary job, burn fat. What’s not to love about a luxurious soak in the tub with the aromatherapy calming your senses and relaxing every fiber of your being as you melt away the inches? All the while, the Essential Oils are penetrating into the skin, restoring it, and nourishing it. Skinny Dipping should be a part of everyone’s “Be Healthy” plan, and especially for those who want to shed a few pounds.
