Horsetail Extract contains the very powerful Supplement silica; this is an essential component of your connective tissues, and as such imperative in the restoration of your of your skin’s elasticity as well as the decrease in appearance of cellulite.

Horsetail has been used for centuries to strengthen nails, hair and reduce the signs of aging in skin. Skin loses its elasticity as it ages, which is due to a weakening of the connective fibers between the skin cells and cell layers. As these fibers are restored the elasticity of the skin returns and it appears smoother and firmer. This can have a dramatic effect on the appearance of your cellulite, which is visible mostly due to loosening of the skin.

As the condition of skin regresses with age, it also explains why cellulite worsens as you age; you are not actually experiencing an increase in cellulite, you are seeing the results from weaker connective tissue. Horsetail is the most powerful natural Supplement to repair the connective tissue and restore your skins natural firmness.

Green Tea has been used for centuries by Asian cultures and has been widely known for its medicinal properties. Only in the past decades has it caught the attention of western researchers and doctors, but it has widely gained appeal since. Green Tea especially has detoxifying and fat burning properties. The secret to this lies in the high concentrations of catechin polyphenols.

These are compounds that work with other chemicals in the body to intensify fat oxidation and prevention of fat storage. Green Tea therefore helps you to Burn more of the fat reserves you have, thus decreasing the appearance of cellulite, as well as preventing further storage of new fats.

Revitol Cellulite cream contains a high concentration of natural Green Tea extract, which safely increases the stimulation of fat breakdown. Thanks to its concentrated state of this ingredient, the product has more permanent effects.

* 1 lb coarse solar sea salt
* 2 teaspoons vegetable glycerine
* 100 drops EO or EO blend

Add the glycerine to the salt and stir or shake until all crystals are coated. Then add the EO, drop by drop, and mix again. It’s that simple. We package them in 4 oz cellophane bags. Poly bags are semipermiable and pretty soon all the different flavors will smell the same. Glass jars also work well. Add 2 tablespoons (or as desired) to warm bath water, and swish to dissolve. I usually get into the tub first–that way you don’t sit on any undissolved crystals…
