If you are like most people, you want to start the New Year off on the right foot. So many people make New Year’s resolutions and break them. I am as guilty as everyone. But this year I decided to take a different approach and just make a decision to start exercising every day! Today is January 19th and I am proud to say I have not missed a day yet! No resolution, just a decision to Get Fit.

There is no easy way to get around it, but if you want to reduce fat you need to exercise and take in less food…sorry friends.

If you eat fresh fruits, vegetables, fish, and lean meat, your tissue will look like the lean meat. As well as diet and exercise, good massage and using essential oils will ensure that you are not left with flabby skin and stretch marks. Below are a list of some essential oils that have a diuretic effect and attack fat:

Try Essential Oils!
  • Basil
  • Lavender
  • Rosemary
  • Sage
  • Thyme
  • Grapefruit
  • Lemon
  • Juniper


To make a general fat & toning massage oil blend together 1/3 cup sweet almond oil, 1/4 cup safflower oil with 5 drops of Juniper Oil, 10 drops of Basil Oil, 8 drops of Grapefruit Oil and 10 drops of Lavender Oil. Shake well. Store in a sealed glass bottle. Massage onto your legs, thighs, around your abdomen and on your arms. Do this as often as you can.

So here’s to your health and well being and happiness,
Bill Varney
