Effective ways to treat cellulite | Tips & DIYs

Hello everyone!

Lots of people all over the world are concerned with cellulite.  Anti-cellulite creams can be costly and/or full of chemicals.  Fortunately, there are safer and cheaper DIY recipes, which can be just as effective!  In today’s post, I’m going to show you how to make my favourite, effective homemade anti-cellulite cream.  Before you spend your money on expensive products, you should try this DIY recipe first.

Grapefruit anti-cellulite cream recipe

  • 30 drops grapefruit essential oil
  • 1 cup of coconut oil

  1. Mix grapefruit essential oil and coconut oil together
  2. Store in a glass container - Citrus essential oils are highly concentrated and are full of healthy acidic properties.  Because of this, you should always use glass containers when storing them.
  3. Rub into affected areas for 5 minutes daily

Coconut oil will help hydrate the skin while grapefruit essential oil contains large amounts of the anti-inflammatory enzyme bromelain, which helps break down cellulite.  

Note: Coconut oil melts in warm temperatures.  The melting point of coconut oil is generally quoted as being 24 °C (76 °F).  If the temperature is above 24 degrees, the oil will be liquid.  If the temperature is below 24 °C, it will become solid.

If you want a creamier consistency, you can add grapefruit oil to an unscented body lotion.  However, I recommend mixing the essential oil and the lotion directly in the palm of your hand.  Just add a few drops to your lotion before you apply it to the affected areas.  Do not add the grapefruit oil straight into the body lotion bottle!

This is not my first blog post on this topic; I shared a recipe for an anti-cellulite coffee scrub, a few years back.  Here’s the link: DIY: Anti-cellulite scrub.  I prefer the grapefruit anti-cellulite cream recipe over this one, simply because I’m not particularly fond of the smell of coffee.  But other than that, the scrub is also a very effective anti-cellulite!

In another post, I also shared a list of tips that you can use to improve the appearance of cellulite.  You can find all the tips here: Fighting cellulite!
