4 Drops A Day May Keep The Inches Away | Young Living Citrus Oils for Weight Loss


I have to share a quick story with you today because, well, I can’t stop talking about it. Look, today we’re going to talk about something that’s not exactly dinner conversation. You might be embarrassed to talk about it. You might even feel like crying about it (whoo, boy, I’ve been there). I’m talking a little thing called “junk in the trunk.” Don’t worry, my story ends with less of it. Yea, that’s right, I said it. LESS.

One thing that had my interest piqued about essential oils was the fact that my friend, Monique had been using them to literally lose part of herself. She told me at one point that just by taking a few oils throughout the day, she was able to significantly cut down on her mid-section bloat (SOLD), plus she was able to actually lose weight (DING DING DING). “Too good to be true,” I said to myself. What did I say to her, you might be asking? “Where can I get me some of this magic.” Here’s the thing, I have 3 little kids (4-year-old twins and a 2-year-old). Is it an excuse for carrying around a few extra ELL BEE’s? YOU BET YOUR…no, i guess it isn’t. I should work out more but let’s be honest here, mom’s with little ones, if we’re gonna have 15 minutes without a tiny human hanging on us, we want to lay face down in bed and not run in circles in the neighborhood, right? Also, the amount of time I don’t have for meal prep and cutting fresh vegetables is astonishing. Finally, 3 children lived in my mid-section for MONTHS. That just ain’t right! KIDDING…kinda. To say my parts aren’t in the right place right now would be putting it mildly. Let’s just call a spade a spade here, taking care of myself is not high on the priority list right now. There is something that I can do and that’s take baby steps toward a more healthy lifestyle. So my first baby step was to try to help rid my body of toxins and lose some weight.

Well, folks, I followed Monique’s weight-loss & bloat-less regimen and I am BLOWN AWAY by the results. So let’s talk about what it consisted of, shall we?

First: You get yourself a bottle of Lemon Essential Oil.

Second: You get yourself a bottle of Peppermint Essential Oil.

Third: You get yourself a bunch of tiny pill capsules.

Fourth: You get yourself a nice batch of carrier oil (I use grapeseed oil but you can use Castor Oil for all I care…kidding…please don’t use Castor Oil, use cooking oil. Seriously, use a high-quality, pure, organic cooking oil)

Fifth: High-five yourself, because that’s it, folks.

I take 4 drops of Lemon and 4 drops of Peppermint oil and I drop them into my empty capsule. I then fill the rest of the cap up with my carrier oil. Snap on the top. Give ‘er a shake. Take it down with water.

If I was you, I’d start with 1 drop of each essential oil and move up as long as your stomach can handle it. The lemon is going to break up the toxins in your body and in your fat cells (gag). That peppermint is going to seriously regulate your digestion (so watch out if you have a sensitive stomach). It’s an amazing combo. So how much have I lost? Well I have been doing it for a 2 months and I’m down 10 pounds. It’s no Biggest Loser transformation…yet, but I feel less hungry and I’m visibly smaller. In addition, I’m healthier because my body is carrying around less of the toxins I usually just store up for no good reason. True story. I think you should try it! There’s an extra special feeling that comes along with being able to smile in the mirror.

Give a little click RIGHT HERE and let your favorite Lemon Dropper know you’re ready to slim up with citrus! She’ll hook you up. Promise.

Not convinced yet? Take a look at some of the other things Lemon and Peppermint oil can do:

  • Rub one drop of peppermint essential oil on the temples, forehead, over the sinuses (careful to avoid contact with your eyes), and on the back of the neck to relieve head pressure.
  • Place 2 drops of peppermint essential oil on the tongue and rub another drop of oil under the nose to help improve concentration and alertness.
  • Apply peppermint essential oil to the back of the neck and shoulders throughout the day to keep energy up.
  • Inhale peppermint essential oil, apply topically to your temples or neck, or put a drop on your tongue or in water to jump-start your morning routine.
  • Diffuse or inhale peppermint essential oil mid-morning to curb the desire to snack.
  • Inhale peppermint essential oil or rub a drop on to your abdomen to soothe minor stomach discomfort.

  1. Would adding a drop of thieves to the mix be a good idea or too much of the good stuff?

    • I take a completely separate thieves pill when I feel sick, someone in my house is sick or I think i’ve been around someone sick. You can certainly add it to the mix.

      • Agree totally. The second I feel sick I take a thieves pill. Knock those germs out.

    • I personally don’t feel like adding a drop of thieves would hurt anything. You know I’m all about thieves. ;)

      • i agree with Monique. I don’t think it would hurt anything.

    • Where do you purchase the capsules? Is there another way to do this besides the capsules? Im very intriqued and new to EO and i want to know so much more.

  2. My twins just turned five, my “baby” is about to turn four and the two really bringing out the gray hair are 9 and 12. So I know what you’re talking about! I also agree wholeheartedly with everything else you say. One month with lemon and peppermint and I’m never going back!! :0)

    • so great, right?!?!?! So happy for you!

    • Yay Nicki! This stuff really does rock my world.

    • Awesome Nicki!! So excited for you!

  3. So awesome! I can’t wait to get my lemon this week to start!

    • Me too! I can’t wait to hear how you do!

    • Yay. Keep us posted with your results!!!

  4. I don’t have capsules so I just added my drops to a glass of water and drank it down fast. ;) I hope it helps!

    • Yep, get it down however you can. ;)

    • I love lemon and peppermint in my water. The lemon actually neutralizes the “heat” a little for me. SO GOOD.

    • HI, I just started the adventure with lemon and peppermint capsules. When do you take them – while eating, before or after ?

  5. HAHA. yea, a lot of people do the water! Did you like it?

  6. I’ve been doing this off and on for the last 2 weeks because I had this certain pair of jeans I got for Christmas, but couldn’t wear them because I was pregnant. Well two weeks ago I couldn’t button them or barely breathe in them. Today though not only could I button them and breathe in them, they were Loose!!!!

    • WooHOO! Congrats my friend!!

  7. gonna start this soon… Kinda let myself go after my weightloss, and Need something to help it keep going.. But please make sure I don’t disappear…. Also, Carrier oil.. What do you all use? Could I use olive oil?

    • yea, robyn, you can use olive oil. I love grape seed oil and coconut oil as well.

      • How do you get the coconut oil in the capsule? Also does t it dissolve the capsule?

  8. Hi there

    i have just stumbled upon this post and i was wondering how you are all doing with this blend? i have been an aromatherapist for over 10 years now and i have never heard of these two being taken together to help reduce weight, but it makes so much sense when you think about it.

    has anyone had any side effects that they didnt like? i have a bit of a sensitive tummy and im fine with peppermint but have never tried lemon internally.

    incidentally though, for those of you that dont know, you can take one drop of peppermint oil daily directly through your tummy button and that will ease conditions such as ibs or other digestive complaints……i am wondering if you can add one drop of both lemon and peppermint directly through the tummy button and if it will have the same weight loss effects as the methods mentioned above.

    Emma x

    • You would have to see what works for you, but I believe taking them in capsules works differently than applying to the skin topically. It is all about what works for you. :)

  9. How many times a day should you do this mixture? I am very excited to try it but wanted to know how often and what time of day works best! Thanks

    • I do it twice a day.

      • Can you take both doses of each at once or do you have to space it out? I.e., 8 drops of lemon and 8 drops of peppermint in capsules?

        • I do them together. Sometimes in the same capsule with a carrier oil.

      • When you say twice a day….do you mean 8 drops of each oil per day? Or do you do 2 drops each twice a day for a total of 4 drops each per day?

        • I’m wondering the same thing….

  10. I started this a few days ago and I certainly have more energy. Nobody has mentioned that, so maybe it is just a coincidence? The first day I did 1 drop each in the capsule with evoo. 2nd day I increased to 2 drops each. No problems so I am now doing 4 drops each in the capsule. Only problem is there is only enough room for about a drop of evoo. I’m wondering if I do more capsules per day, will that help with weight loss? I’ve been going to the gym for a few months (on and off) and no weight loss or inches loss, although I do feel a little stronger. Guess there might actually be little muscles under all this fat? LOL. Anyway, thanks for the info. I sure hope it works!

    • It doesn’t matter how many capsules it goes in, just that it gets in your body. It sounds like you have small capsules, I can fit 30 drops in the 00 size capsules.

  11. do you have to take these in a capsule form? what if you just mixed the 4 drops of lemon with 4 drops of peppermint and some water and slammed that?

    • You could do that but it would be very strong.

  12. Where do you get the capsules?

    • Young Living carries them as do many health food stores.

  13. can your put the lemon and peppermint drops directly on your tongue or is it best to use a carrier oil or water?

    • You could but it would be very, very strong.

  14. Just ordered my kit today! I cannot wait to try this! I’ll let you know how it goes.

  15. This is so exciting! I’m going to make my first capsule tonight!!! :)

  16. just a thought…I know this is Lindsay’s post but it might be a good place to stick that video that Monique did about how to make a lemon and peppermint capsule. There are many times when i see a need for that video and if it were here…it would be easy to find and/or direct people to :)

  17. Love your blog! New to oils! Was wondering…could I just put the drops of Lemon and Peppermint in the capsule and leave out the carrier oil? Does the carrier oil deliver the EOs more efficiently or does the carrier oil just cut down on the intensity of the EOs in the stomach?

    • I would not use it without a carrier oil. They are strong. I think it helps with both things as well as leaving as little air in the capsule as possible.

  18. This sounds too good to be true — I can’t wait to try it! BUT… we’re trying to get pregnant. Is this safe to take while pregnant?

    • Peppermint has been linked to decreasing milk supply as well as turning a baby in utero. In the beginning of your pregnancy, if it were me, I’d be ok with it. Once I got to the second trimester I may skip the peppermint though.

  19. am excited to have found this and just started today! should i also change my diet, or will that just happen with the effects of the lemon/peppermint mixture that I will just be less hungry?

    • You will definitely be less hungry! But I will say if you can change your diet, DO IT! :) I did with mine and lost 25 pounds in the first 2 months. The oils do make your digestive tract work better, but also make you feel more full. Good luck!

  20. I don’t have capsules at the moment but I want to start asap. So what’s the ratio for water?

    • It is the same. :)

  21. My new bottle of lemon EO should be here tomorrow and I can’t wait to try this combination! I’m wondering if you can suggest an EO to curb sugar cravings?

  22. so how many times of day do you do this Lemon and Pepperment

    • Hi! I do it twice a day!

      • I just started a week ago putting 3 peppermint drops into my water bottle. I have found that not only is it refreshing but it helps open my lungs up and loosen the congestion in my chest. I’ve used it for headaches and when I got sick this time instead of going for the over the counter drugs I went for my oils.

  23. Hello…will it be ok to ingest them without a carrier oil?

    • You should be fine! I would just give it a shot and see how you feel. Of course, be warned that Peppermint is a “hot” oil and can be “spicy.” That’s the best way I can explain it. I personally rarely use peppermint without a carrier. Hope that helps.

  24. What brand oil did you use?

    • I found coconut oil at wegmans.

  25. My capsules arrived yesterday and I started with the two drops of each but i use coconut oil. This is day two so so far so good! I am excited. I am having difficulty getting my coconut and other ingredients in the capsules. I am thinking with time I will become a pro! Wish me luck!!

  26. whats the purpose of the carrier oil? do you have to put in in the capsule or can it just be the EOs?

  27. Just want to warn everyone to please follow Lindsey’s suggestion to start off with just one drop of the oils and work your way up to four! I thought starting with three drops each would be safe, but I was wrong!!! I took one with lunch yesterday and I’ve been miserable since bedtime last night!

    • Hi Janelle,
      I’m wondering what you meant by miserable. I have diarrhea and am wondering if the essential oils are causing it. Thanks!

  28. How far in advance can you make your capsules up? Can you do the night before, or at the start of the week and do for the week?

    • I do the night before.

      • How do you get the capsules, full of oils, to stay solid? Mine start disintegrating shortly after being filled.

  29. Should it be taken away from food or does it not matter? Also, is the carrier oil necessary? Sounds like if you can drink it in water that the carrier oil in the capsule wouldn’t be needed.

  30. Make sure your brand of EO is digest able. Not all are.

    • Why are some EOs edible and others aren’t? Do you know a brand that is edible?

      • Some essential oils have a certain chemical makeup or contain an oil in the blend that just isn’t made for internal consumption. For these weight loss capsules we can only speak for Young Living’s quality and commitment to purity. Young Living ‘s Peppermiht & Lemon essential oils are ingestable. Please do not try this with any other brand of essential oils. Essnetial oils from the health food store,yes even the organic ones, are cosmetic grade and only required to contain 5% oil. And as far as the carrier goes be sure to purchase organic olive,organic grapeseed oil or organic coconut from the cooking section.

  31. Is it safe to drink water with YL peppermint and lemon drops in it? And if so, what ratio?

    • Yes you can drink young living lemon and peppermint eo in water. Lemon you could probably do to taste; peppermint is VERY strong so I use about 1 drop in 1 liter of water. If following this weight loss protocol the capsules are a much better way to go.

  32. Thinking about trying this combination. Currently I’m putting a bit if conventrated lemon juice in my water to give me a boost but I haven’t seen any difference in waist size or weight loss.

  33. Any issue adding grapefruit to this mix?

    • I add 4 drops of grapefruit and often 4 drops of orange to my water or capsules with the peppermint and lemon. I read it is a great contributor for weight loss/detox so it can’t hurt. I have been doing it for almost a month now. I do have more energy after drinking/consuming this combo and finally can say my stomach (3 kids here) is improving and I feel my face is thinner.

      • Just be sure grapefruit doesn’t interact with any medications you might be on. It interacts with several prescription meds.

        • I brought up this issue of grapefruit oils with my upline and was informed it is the actual fruit…that reacts with blood pressure meds. The oils I have been told are good to use, but always proceed with caution:)

  34. Everybody is different! I started off full force with the lemon and peppermint. I have not had one issue. I even threw in some grapefruit. But I have read people having problems. You know your body so listen to it!

  35. Wondering if I can premix a bottle each of lemon, grapefruit and peppermint, add grapeseed oil and fill capsules from this. Any harm in combining ahead? Any ideas on ratio of oil to add and then how many drops to add to each capsule?

  36. Can I take while nursing?

    • Stacey, peppermint oil can decrease your milk supply so isn’t recommended while nursing. I have been doing lemon and grapefruit while nursing and have found I’m dropping about 100g a day. My son is a year old.

  37. How is your weight loss now almost a year after your first post?

  38. Going to start this soon. Would like to hear recent posts as it how this is helping people.

  39. I just started using young living EO. I got my kit a few days ago. I was also wandering if I could just use it directly on my tongue within carrier oil or capsules. And how many drops each

  40. hi i would like to try this but i have acid reflux and heard peppermint is not good for acid reflux ? just wondering ,any feed back would suffice thanks

    • Peppermint is awesome for reflux…MD’s used to prescribe it. I’ve gotten many clients off of their daily AR pills and swear by peppermint water!

    • I also had acid reflex but since adding a few drops to my water and drinking that I haven’t had any problems with my acid reflex. I also was a high coffee drinker which added to my acid reflex problem but now that I add the peppermint to my water I reach for that before coffee. I do keep a bottle of water with 3 drops of peppermint on my night stand so that is the first thing I reach for in the morning.

  41. Hypromellose capsules, Hpmc caps or Hpmc capsules has been widely used in the food, dietary supplement and pharmaceutical industries; it is permitted as a food additive.

  42. Do you think it would be ok to have more than 4 drops a day? I have about 30lbs to lose. I have been taking the 4 drops the past few days and can defiantely notice the difference!

  43. love it, cant wait to try it!

  44. Coconut oil is anti-fungal and will boost your metabolism!!!!!! I luv EOs!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  45. I have been using Slique from YL for about 3 weeks and started having severe joint and muscle pain. I felt like I had been hit by a truck. I have lost about 3 pounds this far. I went off of it over the weekend and most of the pain has eased up. I wonder if anyone else has used it and had discomfort.

  46. A lot of people have talked about starting the regiment, but how has it been working for all who have started it? Every body is different so figure I would ask how others are experiencing results.

  47. I was so excited about this but don’t want to take a chance on losing my milk…. Bummer!!!!! I will be doing this for sure when we are done BF.

  48. Are any of you dieting or exercising ?? I ask only because I have been working out for two months and keeping to a diet plan but still no weight loss'(( I actually feel like I’ve gained weight!!!!! So I’m wondering if this will help me….

    • I tried the drops before exercising regularly and had minimal changes, in fact I felt I gained as well. However, since changing my diet, I’ve had great results with the oils and diet combo! Down a few pounds in a couple weeks!!

  49. OK my oily friends, I’m starting the lemon peppermint pills tomorrow. Wish me luck please.

  50. Hi, I started this a week back. But its causing me stomach cramps and acidity. Could it be due to the peppermint eo? Am using 2 drops each of lemon and peppermint twice a day. The oils are certified fit for ingestion. Any thoughts?

  51. Can’t wait to try this combination!

  52. Can I do this while breastfeeding?

    • I am nursing, but only doing the Lemon and grapfruit. I started on May 3rd and I am down 5 lbs. All I have done differently is drinking more water… cant wait to add some excersise!

      • Did the grapefruit and lemon have an impact on your milk supply?

  53. Started the lemon, peppermint, grapefruit, & orange combination today in capsules! Started with just one or two drops and hopefully will work up to 4 drops. I bought evoo, but will switch to coconut oil if anyone thinks it will work better. I have been on an antidepressant for a long time and blame that on not being able to lose weight. Has anyone on antidepressants seen results with the EO? Thanks for any feedback!

    • Be very careful with a medication and grapefruit! Grapefruit can counter act the effects of a drug. So you may want to skip the grapefruit. You might start exploring other oils to hep with depression though!

      • What is the best essential oil for depression?

        • Lemon, Frankincense, lavender and Joy.

      • I am on Warafrin (blood thinner) and is it safe to take the peppermint, grapefruit and lemon capsules with being on Warafrin?

  54. I have been taking 4 drops of each in a capsule every day for a few weeks(for a different reason than weight loss). I just happened to stumble on this site because I was trying to find out why I was losing so much weight. It seems the peppermint oil and lemon oil have many uses together and could explain my recent weight loss. I would say I’m a believer.

  55. I am so excited to try this! Going to crack on with the 1 drop of lemon and 1 of peppermint in water and start upping gradually

  56. Does anyone know what oils or other methods can help shrink and get rid of a fibroid tumor the size of a grapefruit outside of the uterus wall without having surgery to remove the uterus?

    • Frankincense, hlichrysum. It says to put 3 drops of each in a douche. Also apply to Vita Flex points on your feet.

    • for fibroid, why not use cayenne. its very effective for any kind of tumour

      • Frankincense

  57. Hi, How can I purchase these oils? The link you posted to the oil is not working. I know this article is old, but do you still recommend this?

    • You can purchase good oils at You can purchase as a retail customer or you can join as a distributor (you don’t have to go out and sell, only requirement is to purchase $50 a year) and receive a 24% discounted price.

      I can help you if you don’t get a response from Lindsay.

  58. I cant ingest peppermint in the capsule. I have a weak stomach muscle and it causes major indigestion and comes back up in my esophagus. Any other way to make it work as a suppressant? I see you can dilute and rub on abdomen? Would that be as effective?

  59. Ok, so I have been reading all of these and am very interested. I just got my oils yesterday and am trying to learn all I can about how to use and what to use, etc. I just have the starter kit right now. So, if I wanted to start this now with the peppermint and the lemon oil – I also have organic coconut oil, fyi. But I didn’t want to make the capsules – just wanted to do it in water if possible, so please tell me how to make it specifically and how often to do it per day! Thanks so much!

  60. How long before you see any weight loss? I’ve been doing for 3 days so just curious when I might see some change.

  61. Hi I am brand new and excited to be starting this wonderful journey as a LemonDropper. I love the oils for so many different reasons. I’m going to start using them for weight loss. I noticed other people had posted questions, but I didn’t see any answers. I’d like to do the drops in water , too. Any suggestions?

  62. I would love to try this, but I am currently breastfeeding, will this be ok to do still? Love your site. I recently turned to EO for help with my son and daughter who have allergies and eczema.

  63. I am almost 8 weeks pregnant, and despite walking over 2.5 miles 5 days a week, watching sodium. and eating tons of fruit and veggies, I have gained almost 10 pounds. I know this is not normal and I suspect I have some sort of imbalance. Can I take the lemon, grapefruit, and orange combo to help me shed weight and get back to a normal weight or get rid of fluid retention? I suffered from preclampsia my last pregnancy so I am being very very proactive. Also I noticed that YL oils are sold on Amazon, are these legit? I kinda want them right away and am a Prime member so don’t want to wait forever to get them. I need them ASAP. My health depends on it.

  64. Should this mix be taken with a meal or before a meal?

    • I take mine in the morning before I eat. But I have no idea if it’s right or wrong. Lol.

      • I take mine with just water on an empty stomach. Never had a problem.

  65. Where is Lindsay? Her last post was September 29, 2013!

  66. I started using these oils plus grapefruit 2 months ago! I started cutting back on sugar and carbs too before I added the oils, I was losing weight but when I started taking the oils along with healthier eating…….it has been crazy amazing! I have lost 45 pounds and 10 dress sizes in 4 months! I have struggled for years with digestion and hormonal imbalances and this was exactly what my body needed!

    • Please tell me more! How many drops of each of the trio do you do each day? Once a day or twice a day? So excited for your weight loss! I’m weaning myself off my antidepressant in hopes of being able to lose weight. I’ve been doing this trio, but not consistently. I blame not being able to lose weight on the antidepressant, but maybe I need to try harder. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

      • Scarlett,
        I was on Zoloft and I too could not loose weight. I gradually got off the Zoloft and since getting it out of my system, I have lost 12 pounds. I have since plateaued and going to start the lemon, peppermint, grapefruit oil tomorrow. So don’t blame yourself. It is the anti depressant for sure.

        • Thanks, Amanda! I have been off Cymbalta for a week now, but have actually gained a few pounds.

          • It takes a while to get out of your system. I was on Zoloft for 4 years and it took several months to see a difference. I started eating healthier and following Weight Watchers and that helped alot.

          • That’s what I was thinking, Amanda! Maybe I will see a difference soon. I started reading “Made To Crave, satisfying your deepest desire with God, not food.” It is really inspiring so far. Thank you, again, for taking the time to respond. Have a great week!

          • Sounds like an awesome book! I know I couldn’t do what I’ve done with God.

    • That is amazing!

    • I am interested in starting the oils along with healthy eating ASAP!! But I am confused on which oils will be most beneficial with maximum results fast! Are you saying you use the lemon and peppermint oil along with grapefruit? Please clarify your regimen so I can take it into consideration as I make my decision on the oils to choose…thanks!

  67. I have severe constipation and am on a prescription laxative trying to get some relief….What combination of oils would be best…..and will they interfere with my prescription? Thanks! Love YLEO!!!

  68. How much of water???

  69. How often do you take a capsule in a day? Just once?

  70. I have the same question as Timea…do you take one capsule a day or two?

    • I take one at night and one in the morning. I’m not very consistent, but I can definitely tell a difference when I take it.

  71. Going to be trying this soon. Wondering if anyone has used the drops in hot tea?

  72. Is it possible to make it in volume let say for one.month consumption or more? so that no need to mix everytime you take the combo and how long is the shelf life? When taking before or after meal? Hope to answer me soon

  73. if EO peppermint and lemon are ingestable WHY are they marked not to be engested… I’m concerned of long term effects on the liver

    • Hi Betty, are you using Young Living Oils? Please make sure you are… I became a distributor with YL after realizing that their brand of oils is one of a few that is ingestible, Even other pure therapeutic EO brands will not recommend internal consumption unlike YL.

  74. Does anyone know if adding Fennel to the capsule along with the lemon & peppermint would counteract the peppermint breast milk supply decrease issue? Fennel helps to increase milk supply soooo…..??

    • Peppermint will reduce your milk production. I’d be extremely cautious with it. If I were you I’d stick with lemon and grapefruit until I was finished breastfeeding.

  75. can you put lemon and peppermint oils in difusser for weight loss effects

    • I have been using EOs for a yr now, You can use aromatically or topically but you will see better results for weight loss internally. Just make sure you are using 100% therapeutic grade oil. DOTERRA or young living are the only 2 companies I know of that are safe to take internally..

  76. Do I have to use a carrier oil? I got the capsules, oils, and am ready to go, but this is the first Ive seen someone suggest using a carrier oil.

  77. I am trying this also… Young Living oils only… I am doing just lemon oil in water, first thing in morning and last thing before bed.. 4 drops.. I can tell a difference but have not weighed yet..

  78. I’m new with using young living EO’s. I have the peppermint. I been using for headaches and love how fast it works. Also have the lemon, only have use it a few times for cleaning. I have read all the comments about using these two oils together in capsule form for weight loss. Just curious…but, can you just rub them in together directly around waist line to help take inches off?

  79. They are best because they have anti-bacterial properties that kills the germs of mouth and stops building the dental plaque which later causes tooth decay and other problems to breath also. Essential oil mouthwash contains eugenol,thymol,phynol ,eucalypto and menthol that are good for healthy oral hygiene.below we are describing why such ingredients are necessary for your oral hygiene and the reason of using essential oil mouthwash
