When we ask the question where does our body store toxins? The answer is –in fat. This is sad, but also true. Therefore, to help get rid of the embarrassing presence of cellulite, it is crucial to remove the toxins accumulated in our bodies. Without taking action, the storage of toxins will just grow, making cellulite more bad looking as time passes.
According to one CNN article, cellulite is the issue that concerns 90% of women. Dermatologists from the University of Grenoble inform that the extract of cinnamon can be very effective in eliminating cellulite. In the experiment participated 80 women with cellulite problem. Half of the women were treated with special anti-cellulite massages and masks, while the rest were exposed to treatment with cinnamon oil. The result was that in the first group cellulite was reduced for 10% and in the second group for 60%
Cinnamon is among the most popular spices and its incredible health power is due to the high concentration of antioxidants. The connection between reduction in cellulite and cinnamon is made on a very logical base. Cellulite is associated with poor circulation and cinnamon improves circulation in the body, helping to stimulate the removal of built-up toxins, as well as cellulite, in the organism.
To get the most of the cinnamon benefits include this amazing spice in your daily diet. Sprinkle it over your oatmeal or cereals, or add it in your favorite smoothie, tea or coffee.
Cinnamon has some rather unexpected qualities. It’s a proven antibacterial, anti-fungal and antimicrobial substance. Doesn’t just go great on cakes!
It also has astringent properties similar to that of Witch Hazel, that means it helps firm skin, and clear blemishes. It’s perfect for areas of high cellulite because its astringent properties help tighten those areas.
Cinnamon is rich in benefiting minerals like Iron, calcium and Magnesium that help keep skin healthy.
Furthermore, cinnamon actually helps local blood circulation and consequently helps spread the distribution of cellulite making it the perfect addition in a body butter. It helps remove blood impurities reducing inflammation and is also recommended for acne. It’s quite possibly the ultimate cellulite busting ingredient to ever go into a body butter! We’ve also added Witch Hazel, again it’s primarily because of it’s astringent properties, and also it’s abiltiy to hydrate the skin for extensive time periods, that it makes the cut for this exclusive recipe.
We also included Vitamin E, which is the go to remedy for acne and operation scars. It’s known for reducing the harsh appearance of scars and so it makes a great addition to a cellulite body butter where those areas are often accompanied by stretch marks and pimpled skin.

Use the body butter generously, and apply up to three times a day. You should be able to get some good results after a month of so. Additionally, massaging the affected area of cellulite helps to increase blood flow and also to help reduce any excess build up by distributing the cells evenly.
