Weight Loss Testimonial: Once a Size 12, Now a Size 6

One of the most amazing things to read, for me, are the testimonials of other essential oil users. This one is about a woman who lost weight using grapefruit oil in her drinking water. Scientific studies are linked to support the effects, so take a look and do your own research if your interested in the effects of d-limonene.

I, Ayse Zencir, have been using essential oils for a year now. I fell in love with them. My best personal testimony is my weight loss.
I used to drink grapefruit-oiled water every day, 7 drops in 8 cups of water. Now my size is 5-6. I used to wear size 10-12. Let me inform you of my recipe: I add 7 drops of Grapefruit essential oil into 2 liters of water and shake it very well. One or two hours before every meal, I drink 2-3 cups of the grapefruit-oiled water. All day I drink only this oiled water.
In a month you may feel the results, but you may not see any weight change until after 2 months. Keep trying! Everybody has a different body. Some of you may need to run to the toilet, and some may be constipated. It may vary person to person.
You may feel dizzy or have rapid heartbeats or a headache, so it is good to start with 1-2 drops each day for the first week.
Note: Grapefruit juice has been known to interact with some medications, especially hormonal medications. Grapefruit essential oil is extracted from the grapefruit peel. I have been unable to find any documented cases of interactions with Grapefruit essential oil. Still check for contraindications with your current medications and consult with your doctor before proceeding.

Supporting Scientific Studies
1."As proven in vitro, essential oils [Eucalyptus, Melaleuca Alternifolia, Thyme, Lavender, Lemon, Lemongrass, Cinnamon, Grapefruit, Clove, Sandalwood, Peppermint, Sage (includes all components of Thieves blend)] represent a cheap and effective antiseptic topical treatment option even for antibiotic-resistant strains as MRSA and antimycotic-resistant Candida species."Link
2."We found that d-limonene [in citrus oils] activated peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor (PPAR)-alpha signaling, and inhibited liver X receptor (LXR)-beta signaling. Our data suggest that the intake of d-limonene may benefit patients with dyslipidemia and hyperglycemia and is a potential dietary supplement for preventing andameliorating metabolic disorders."Link
3."D-limonene is one of the most common terpenes in nature. It is a major constituent in several citrus oils.... Being a solvent of cholesterol, d-limonene has been used clinically to dissolve cholesterol-containing gallstones. Because of its gastric acid neutralizing effect and its support of normal peristalsis, it has also been used for relief of heartburn and gastroesophageal reflux (GERD). D-limonene has well-established chemopreventive activity against many types of cancer. Evidence from a phase I clinical trial demonstrated a partial response in a patient with breast cancer and stable disease for more than six months in three patients with colorectal cancer."
