A Seriously Potent Homemade Cellulite Cream

Homemade cellulite cream

Ladies, it’s time for a full-body detox.

No, I don’t mean that kind of detox.

In fact, this cleanse won’t leave you hungry and you don’t have to drink one single gulp of green sludge.

Instead, we’re going to work from the outside-in to rid your skin of gnarly cellulite dimples and have you beach body ready in a few short weeks.

We already know that cellulite is formed by fat deposits and toxins resting beneath your skin. Increased circulation helps flush these toxins and stimulate cell turnover for healthier looking skin.

We’ve gone over stimulating body scrubs, sensuous massage techniques and even a few cellulite-solving physical exercises, so now it’s time to really bring it all home.

To help get the most out of your new anti cellulite routine, I’m going to show you how to make a potent homemade cellulite cream.

This cream is rich with ingredients that nourish, moisturize, stimulate and effect your skin from the cellular level, right to the outermost layer.

So let’s get to it, shall we?

Homemade Cellulite Cream

All you need to make this badass homemade cellulite cream is a few essential oils and a base:

  • 3/4 cup Coconut Oil
  • 2 tablespoons shaved Beeswax
  • 3 tablespoons Witch Hazel
  • 10 drops Juniper oil
  • 10 drops Rosemary oil
  • 30 drops Grapefruit oil
  • 30 drops Cypress oil

Once you have all your ingredients together, the process is simple:

Step 1 – Start by mixing together all of your essential oils and your witch hazel. Stir until evenly blended.

Step 2 – Over low heat, melt your beeswax then add in your coconut oil, if it is not liquid yet.

Step 3 – Once your beeswax and coconut oil is liquified, add it to your essential oil bowl and blend.

Step 4 – Pour contents into a resealable jar and store in a cool, dry place.

Why This Homemade Cellulite Cream Works

This homemade cellulite cream is powerfully potent thanks to the amazing essential oils.

I know what you must be thinking – how the heck can oils help to eliminate cellulite?

Well, for starters, Juniper is a diuretic and purifier while also being a great circulation stimulator.

Rosemary is essential for increasing blood flow throughout the body which significantly reduces the appearance of cellulite over time. It is also good for flushing your lymphatic system and helping with water retention.

Cyprus and grapefruit essential oils are both effective towards increasing circulation, relieving fluid retention and flushing toxins from your skin.

Witch hazel is another crucial ingredient for helping refine and tighten your skin, and having a more even-toned surface will deflect some of the visual effects of cellulite.

In time, the firming benefits of witch hazel will play an even bigger role in diminishing cellulite permanently.

Beeswax and coconut oil are both easily absorbed into your skin and help to infuse much needed moisture and simply makes for a great cream base.

This brilliant cream is great to use when you’re using my massage techniques to knead away nasty fat deposits.

To get the most of this cream, use it twice daily; once in the morning and once before bed.

Even better, use it right after your shower so your pores are ready, willing and able to absorb this luxurious treat and heal itself.

Firmly massage this cream into your skin to stimulate it even more.

This is quite possibly the most dazzling anti-cellulite remedy I’ve come up with yet!

Prep time and application only take minutes but the benefits are riveting.

So what are you waiting for?

Embrace your inner DIY diva, mix up your own homemade cellulite cream and get ready to fascinate your friends with your outrageous anti-cellulite results!

Can you tell I’m excited about this remedy? *happy wiggles *

  • Hi there, I’m 27 and recently have become more obsessed with my aging process and body issues. I’m on a totallynew health regime
    (Healthy eating and regular exercise) and have lost 15 lbs, but cellulite seems to be a never ending battle. I’ve incorporated your DIY anti cellulite massage and scrub into my daily routine and have had success. I do like the sounds of this cream though, and seems a little more hassle free than the scrub. What would happen if I combined the 2 (scrub before shower, cream after shower)? Or should I drop one and pick up the other? Thank you so much, you’ve been a huge help to the new me!

  • Congratulations on the new you, Ashley! That’s great news!

    So happy to hear you’re having success with the remedies! Big high five to that!

    As for your question…if I were you I would keep up with the scrub as use the cream afterwards. I know it’s a little high maintenance but if you are getting results then that’s all that matters, right?

    Alternatively you could test out Finulite. You can check out Sabrina’s review of it here –> http://topbeautybrands.com/finulite-review/

    Hope that helps :-)

  • Great! Thanx! :-) Hitting up Amazon now for the essential oils. Liking the DIY vs ordering… cost efficient and effective… plus left overs make for some nice added extras like the DIY BB Cream ;-)

  • Quick and possibly silly question: Are Essential Oils same as Aromatherapy Essential Oils?

  • Not silly at all and yes :)

  • I hear that! You can also make fun presents out of them for your girlfriends :-)

  • Why wich hazel? Is it to clense the fats away?

  • It helps to tighten your pores :-)

  • Hi again! Just waiting for my beeswax to come in and i can create my cream :-)
    As the witch hazel is used to tighten pores, could this be applied directly to the face to help fight blemishes?

  • As I noticed its also in the BB Cream.

  • I would use caution because the concentration of essential oils in this recipe is higher than the dilution recommended for use on the face (facial blends – 12 drops to 50mls or 50gms)

  • It sure can! My girl Sabrina wrote all about the many uses for Witch Hazel here –> http://besskincare.com/uses-for-witch-hazel

  • Update! So it took a bit of time for me to wait for all the ingredients to be delivered (plus be resent some ingredients do to damage during postage), but i have it all now! Making the cream was surprisingly super easy and tons of fun. It felt a bit like I was conducting a science experience, melting the beeswax and then adding the liquefied coconut oil (I should

  • sorry… computer went nuts… anyway…
    (I should note that I liquefied everything in a glass jar and placed the jar in a boiling water to melt); once the coconut oil touched the beeswax, it started to solidify again, i though i did something wrong, but as soon as I turned up the heat, the substance melted down again. Combined all ingredients and presto! it started automatically formed a creamy base! AMAZING… i personally wasnt to keen on the smell so I tossed a few extra drops of grapefruit oil in and now it has a nice light citrus smell. Application is a bit oily, BUT I feel like I was just walked out of the spa after a massage. Ill come back later after a couple of days and report on my results! :-)

  • Can’t wait to hear your report after a few days use. Good call on the grapefruit oil for scent! Smarty pants!

  • It’s important to use high-quality essential oils in recipes like this, because the essential oils are absorbed into your skin and your bloodstream. If the oils contain synthetics or impure compounds, you’ll get those in your bloodstream too. Since essential oils are very powerful, they can have negative side effects if they are impure or used carelessly. Look for essential oils that are “Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade” or CPTG to make sure that you’re getting all of the good and none of the bad. dōTERRA brand CPTG essential oils are sold by Independent Product Consultants, who can help you learn how to use essential oils properly to treat a wide variety of cosmetic and health concerns.

  • Thank you so much for the Chryssa, we appreciate the added info :-)

  • While I agree you should only use high quality oils, the CPTG is a term made up by companies like Young and DoTerra to get you to buy there super over priced oils and buy into there pyramid schemes. There are many good places to get high quality oils. Like New Directions Aromatics. Companies should list where the plant was grown, how it was distilled, (steam, Co2, etc) and should not be cut by oils. Good products do not have to coast a fortune, unless its Rose oil, then it is what it is.

  • CPTG just means that the company (doTERRA) takes extra measures to ensure their oils are pure and safe. The oils are tested for purity and potency by two outsourced companies, then again in-house prior to bottling. Isn’t it a good thing to be sure the oils you are putting on and in your body are safe?

  • Is this safe to use while pregnant? I know some of the oils should not be used during pregnancy or while nursing.

  • To be safe I would check with your doctor because I wouldn’t want to mislead you or put you in any sort of potential harm :-)

  • The Essential Oils that are known to be safe for Pregnancy are Lavender & Mandarin.

    You are right that the oils in this recipe are listed as not safe during pregnancy.

    Also, note that the concentration of Essential Oils in this recipe would be used in a topical treatment cream – guidelines for a body massage oil for example would be 25 drops per 50mls or 50gm of base for a healthy adult – and there are lower concentrations for children, pregnant mums, the elderly and medically frail.

    While I am not an Aromatherapist, I am a massage therapist, with aromatherapy training and also Pregnancy Massage training.

    this sounds very interesting.

  • Hi there,
    I’m excited to try your recipe out, but I had one question. I’m really allergic to juniper (Makes my skin itch like crazy!), would it still be as effective if I just remove the juniper oil from this?

    Thank you!


  • Of course you can remove it…I’m going to try and find you an alternative oil though to substitute it with :)

  • I’m wondering if you came up with an alternative to Juniper? I was thinking of Lemmongrass ….

  • Yep, lemongrass works…as could lavender :-)

  • is it necessary to incorporate the beeswax into this mix? i know & understand what the other ingredients are for but i’m not sure about the beeswax? please & thanks! :)

  • Yes you should as it helps to give the cream the consistency you need :)

  • I’m not sure that would work as you need the consistency of the beeswax…but I’ve never tried it that way so you could always test it out and see for yourself :)

  • Hey! I made this recipe and have a question that I hope someone can help me with. I made a double batch – one for my daughter and one for myself – she has used hers a few times and it is fine but I used mine once and when I went back to use it again it had separated (looked like water and firmer coconut oil). Does anyone know why this happened or what I may have done wrong? I just tried stirring it together (though it didn’t want to mix!) and I put it in the refrigerator so I will see if that helps. We keep our house temp on 68 but I think the bathroom may get a little warmer so that might be it?

  • I’m thinking if your house is a little warm that could be why. For example, my coconut oil here in Thailand is always a liquid but when we went to China for a friend’s wedding it was rock solid.

    So that could be why this is separating. What has your daughter done differently?

  • One site I was looking at for essential oils has juniper berry. Is that the same as the juniper in your recipe above? Thanks.

  • It should be…as long as it’s the oil and not the berry hahaha ;)

  • I will be making this. At 51 we need all the help we can get and it sounds fabulous! Now, I was not able to download your book. It kept giving me an error. Any ideas?

  • Oh really? Email me at replytoprojectbeauty(at)gmail.com and I’ll send it to you :)

  • hello please please tell me where I can order online all the oils needed to make the cellulite cream. Except for the coconut oil and grapeseed oil, my local health ffod store does not have juniper oil, cypress oil, rosemary oil or beeswax.. thank you

  • You can order them on Amazon if you like :)

    I think that’s probably the easiest!

  • Hi! I am thinking…can I add some coffee to the mixture for extra potency..?

  • To be honest, I haven’t tried it but you can always test it out and see if it works :)

  • So I made the recipe exactly and my cream did not solidified after placed in a cool place. What can prevent it from turning into a cream base instead of liquid? Is not so bad it smells delicious is just oily.

  • Try reducing the coconut oil to 1/2 cup and adding 4 tablespoons of beeswax instead of 2. That should help thicken it up!

  • This looks great! I want to try it. Can I share this on my Young Living essential oil website address http://www.facebook.com/pkyleo. Young Living essential oils are THE BEST.

  • Sure thing! Just be sure to give us a shout out with a backlink :)

  • I just finished reading “The Cellulite Solution”, by Howard Murad, M.D. He recommends all of the ingredients that are in your homemade cellulite cream. However, he recommends others as well. Some of the others I wanted to add are aloe vera, pomegranate oil, vitamin E oil, safflower oil, borage seed oil, and evening primorose oil. Here are my questions:
    Do you think this is a good idea? If so how much of each?
    And to make it thicker could I add more beeswax or maybe cat’s-claw powder?
    Thanks for the help,

  • Those all sound like great additions, but to be honest, I have no clue how much you would add in for each. I would assume that additional beeswax would make it thicker though. Sorry I couldn’t be more helpful there!

  • Do you have any recipes for anti cellulite scrubs?

  • Absolutely. Check out this great Anti-Cellulite Coffee Scrub!
