Last week I had the cheat meal to end all cheat meals. I mean I ate ALL THE THINGS. The next day I was so bloated and sick feeling! So I experimented with my oils to make an all body detox balm. It came out wonderfully and I had to share it with you all. The pictures above were taken an hour apart. All you have to do is rub the balm on and get a good sweaty workout in!
Here’s what you need:
*3 drops Frankincense
*2 drops Lemon
*2 drops Purification
*2 drops Thieves
*2 drops Peppermint
*1 TBSP Coconut Oil
Why these oils? Frankincense is great for skin tightening, Lemon detoxes and soothes the stomach, Purification clears skin imperfections, Thieves cleanses and sanitizes, and Peppermint helps with digestion and soreness. Mixed together with coconut oil you have the perfect detox!
I rub my entire body down with this balm, then hit the gym. After an hour of sweating I feel and look so much better! If you don’t already have an essential oil starter kit, you can get it HERE.

I'm a huge fan of essential oils! When I have bloating issues, I use a doTERRA blend called Digestzen, but I'll have to try mixing in frankincense, lemon, and peppermint!
Nicole, definitely do! My mother in law was going th same and she added those three and it made a HUGE difference.
I have no experience with this at all… wondering if I should….
You definitely need to try it my dear!
Interesting. I don't have any essential oils.
Jen you need to try!
I haven't ever detoxed or really used essential oils but it looks interesting!
I've used essential oils for my hair, but never as a detox for my body while working out. Sounds interesting! Peppermint oil is one of my favorites!
OMG Artney try it! Its the bestttt
I have never used essential oils this way- interesting!
I've been hearing a lot about essential oils lately–what exactly is in "Thieves?" :O
OMG Thieves is the best of them all! Its a purifier and sanitizer!
I've never done a detox before, and unfortunately have heard such mixed reviews that I'm scared to give it a try.
I promise, just try it and you'll love it!
Oh wow interesting I haven't heard of this either. Looking deeper into it!
I read tons of stuff on detoxes but this is the first with essential oils! I absolutely love it.
Been dieting and this is just what I need to help the process along!!
You did that with oils? Teach me the way!
I'm new to essential oils and would love to go beyond my favorite lavender. You've given me a starting point. Thanks!
I have used essential oils in the past but not to their fullest capabilites. It is great to see your results!!! Thanks for sharing.
I have not experimented with essential oils but definitely need to! Thanks for the great suggestion!
OMG this is amazing! I've never used essential oils, but I've always heard great things. And the proof is clearly here!
Speaking of oils, I see you use young living, do you have a preference, also are there any you use routinely for Hudson.
