Adapted from a recipe from First magazine. According to Jilian Alexander-Gregory, author of The Spa Gardens, when grapefruit oil is massaged into the skin, a compound called D-limonene stimultes the lymphatic system to flush excess fluid and toxins from bodily tissues for effortless slimming. How does that strike ya!?

  • 15 drops grapefruit essential oils
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 12 cup aloe vera gel


  1. Mix the ingredients together. Massage into problem areas.

Now I'm not sure exactly what this is doing for me yet, but I can say I am using it each and everday, and I absoluetly LOVE it. I love the smell, and I love the fact that I believe it is a really good thing. Thank you Sharon123 for posting (for me, at least) "a feel good recipe"!!!
