    Essential oils are not really "oils" so they are ok - Is this true???????

    Hey I found this on a website when I folowed a link on this forum about hair products.
    Is this true?????

    The HCG Diet clearly states not to eat any types of foods containing oils, such as fatty fish, butter or hamburger, nor to use oils on your skin while on the diet.

    However, you will notice our cellulite treatment recipes, massage oil recipe, and Concentrated Citrus Body Wash contain ingredients known as "essential oils". We want to help clarify what essential oils are and why they are completely safe to use on the HCG Diet.



    Essential oils are unlike the oils we eat, such as olive oil, flax oil, coconut oil and oils from fatty fish (better known as essential fatty acids). Nor are they like oils in body products such as jojoba, almond, sesame seed, borage, shea butter, wheat germ oil (Vitamin E), just to name a few. These are actual oils.

    Essential oils are known as the "oil of the plant" from which they were extracted, such as "oil of clove", but are not actually oily. An essential oil is the most concentrated forms of any botanical (plant, herb, leaf, flower, root, bud twig, fruit, etc) and is generally extracted by distillation. It takes at least one pound of any given plant to create one drop of essential oil; this provides a concentrated dose of nature’s vast pharmacological active ingredients in a single drop of oil (25 mg).

    An oil is "essential" in the sense that it carries a distinctive scent, or essence, of the plant and can be used in perfumes, cosmetics, soap and other products; for flavoring food and drink; and for scenting incense and household cleaning products. GOLDEN ESSENCE™ is ever concerned about helping you get the maximum benefits from your skincare products and providing you with more than just a product. We have incorporated the art of Aromatherapy, which means we have added essential oils for therapeutic reasons to GOLDEN ESSENCE™ Concentrated Citrus Body Wash and in the cellulite recipes we have provided. These formulas are designed to help improve detoxification; increase circulation; reduce cellulite; and tighten skin.

    Worldwide there are 3000 essentials oils. Can you imagine how many possibilities there are with these oils? Some of the most popular ones that are helpful in strengthening veins, reducing inflammation, increasing lymphatic drainage and have diuretic properties are: bergamot, cedarwood, chamomile, cypress, geranium, ginger, juniper, patchouli, sandalwood, clary sage, lavender, lemon, neroli and rosemary.

    Essential oils are fascinating to study and can be used for all sorts of therapeutic benefits. The cellulite body lotion, the cellulite body scrub, the cellulite bath treatment and GOLDEN ESSENCE™ Concentrated Citrus Body Wash have been clinically tested and approved for their therapeutic benefits. Have fun, get creative and make some recipes of your own!

    essential or not it is oil and it will be metabolized by the body.

    perhaps in the levels they are proposing you may not be adversely affected but maybe you will be.
    This is your last chance. After this, there is no turning back. You take the blue pill - the story ends, you wake up in your bed and believe whatever you want to believe. You take the red pill - you stay in Wonderland and I show you how deep the rabbit-hole goes.

    Essential oils are like fragrances, they do not have the same qualities as a carrier oil aka fatty acid such as olive oil. They are fine for the skin. The method to which they are extracted is different from the way say olive oil is extracted. It is not the same.


    Essential oils do not, as a group, have any specific chemical or pharmaceutical properties in common. Instead, they are defined by the fact that they convey characteristic fragrances. They can be metabolized by the body, but not in the same manner as fatty acids, such as olive oil.

    The information above is correct, it is not the same as a fatty acid even though it is an oil, it is not a fatty acid.

    BTW, I have used essential oils in my products and it has not affected my losses in any way.

    Huge CONGRATS on you reaching your goal. I just can't imagine how that feels. I use Young Living essential oils - but had stopped when I started HCG. I forgot my lemon for my water this morning, and I just put just a dab of the lemon YL in my water and was scared afterwards cause I don't need no hinderance in my weight loss. So, I do hope U R right-LOL. But, I guess you are, look at your weight loss. Oh, how long did it take you to reach goal?
