Body Therapists: Keep a jar of this handy in your treatment room. It's going to be the balm to use when your clients are changing their eating patterns, or are trying to lose weight. Try dry-brushing the skin first, apply the Lipo Detox, massage it in firmly, and cover that area with a hot steamy towel.
I  prefer using herbal infused massage medicinals like this one to essential oils, creams or lotions for 5 reasons:

1. I love the purity of there being only 3 ingredients in the base of each one:
     100%  Organic Olive Oil
     100%  Organic Coconut Oil
     100%  Organic Beeswax from New Zealand

2. I love working with pure plant medicines. The plant material is triple infused into the Olive and Coconut Oils, very slowly, in our greenhouse. When botanical substances are infused, slowly (over a period of weeks) under the rays of the sun, the end result is a powerfully synergized product, alive with co-factors and vitality.
Lipid based compounds from within the botanical leaves and seeds identify with the oils, bind to them, and are imparted into the oil. The infusing of oil and oil soluble substance gives us a food-grade topical which is safe to combine with heat, steam and water, and is gentler than essential oils alone.

3. I love rich buttery balm instead of runny oil in massage. Using dripless oil means the product stays on the body, rather than all over the linens, which is more economical in the long run than other oil products.
4. The slower viscosity is supportive of deeper tissue therapy, sports massage and myo fascial work.

5. Beeswax. The beeswax is warming at the sub dermal layer which helps any of your heat treatments.

And my clients love working with this medicinal balm at home in between appointments.

Here is how I suggest the Lipo Detox Massage Medicinal Balm be used at home:

1.  Dry brush massage the entire body, towards the heart.
2. Apply Lipo Detox Balm all over, massaging in little circles or a vigorous friction type of stroke pattern.
3. Take either a hot shower or bath. Don't wash the balm off with soap. Towel dry.
4. Water. Drink a full glass now.
5. Greens + Fruits: eat more than usual.
6. Next day: Repeat

Ingredients: 100% organic Virgin Olive Oil, Raw Unrefined Coconut Oil, New Zealand or German pesticide-free wildcrafted beeswax and honey cappings infused with rosemary leaves, grapefruit and mint

How it works: Astringency and liquefying. The plants used cut through sluggish or accumulated lipids in the cells, causing them to return to the eliminative channels of the pores, and kidney bladder function. The intention with this balm is to reduce accumulations of toxins, refresh the entire body, and to gain a lighter feeling all over.
