Are you a blaster yet? As in a Fascia Blaster?
If you have no idea what I am talking about I recommend you visit the FasciaBlaster® web site, watch the YouTube videos associated with the woman behind this company, and also join the private Facebook group with almost 300,000 members. Oh and you can read the amazing book, The Cellulite Myth: It’s Not Fat, It’s Fascia. Its only about $10 whether you buy the kindle version or a hard copy. I highly recommend it.
After you start exploring all the resources, you are hooked. It really is like falling down the rabbit hole Alice.
When I came out on the other side (aka Wonderland) I ordered a FasciaBlaster, a FaceBlaster, and a Mini2. I went back and forth about whether or not to order the oils because the blasting process requires lots of lubricant. They sound like amazing, science backed products but after dropping about $250 on the other products I decided to save some pennies and make my own instead. I already had all the supplies on hand.
For this cellulite blasting oil I carefully chose essential oils that would help me with my goals to improve the health of my fascia. Here are the ones I chose and why…
Rosemary – This oil is amazing for blood circulation, for improving skin texture, and aiding cell regeneration. It is stimulating and healing, thus helping with firming and toning of the skin.
Fennel – This sweet smelling oil has diuretic properties that support the elimination of stored up waste materials in the cells and decreases water retention in body tissues. It is also great for breaking up the fatty deposits under the skin.
Grapefruit – This fruit is often associated with dieting and there is a reason for that. It speeds up lymphatic circulation and the elimination of toxins in the body. Grapefruit essential oil is rich in antioxidants, especially vitamin C, which is critical for collagen synthesis and healthy skin.
Juniper – This oil is great for circulation, flushing toxins, and keeping you from retaining water.
Cedarwood – Brings balance to the skin and helps clear impurities and toxins.
Carrot Seed – This oil has powerful antioxidant and detoxifying properties. It keeps the skin hydrated and slows the aging process. It stimulates the growth of new skin cells and is rich in vitamins E and C, great for collagen production!
DIY Cellulite & Fascia Blasting Oil
15 Drops Grapefruit Oil
10 Drops Rosemary Oil
10 Drops Fennel Oil
10 Drops Juniper Oil
5 Drops Cedarwood Oil
5 Drops Carrot Seed Oil
8 ounces fractionated coconut oil (stays liquid)
Add the oils to a dark blue or brown glass bottle followed by the coconut oil. Use liberally before each blasting session. Please note that this blend has citrus oil in it, which can make you prone to sunburn if you get some sun right after use. Wait awhile before getting some rays or omit the grapefruit if you blast outside.
I have also been known to use the Renpure Coconut Water Mist I use on my hair. Works just as good for blasting and the bonus is that I smell like a pina colada. I have also used plain old coconut oil, works like a charm.
