Young Living has come out with a fantastic line of products to help individuals lose weight. I was excited when I first heard but skeptical because I have such a hard time losing weight. I have PCOS which is an endocrine challenge that makes weight loss difficult. One month I even ran 45 minutes on the treadmill every day and kept my calories under 1500 and at the end of the month I had gained a pound (can you say, “oh-so frustrating!”).
Young Living is doing TWO “Slique in 60” challenges with some great prizes including cash for the best results. I’m currently in the first challenge and the second challenge starts March 13th and goes through May 11th if you’d like to join that one with me as well. My team, Team Faith Builders has a Facebook support group where everyone gets to know each other and we leave video diaries and encourage and support each other in our weight loss journey. It is a WONDERFUL support to help you with your goals! We currently have 25 people in the group and will have a new bunch joining us for the second challenge… maybe that can be you! To see the official rules, click HERE. If you want to do the challenge, send me an email and I can fill you in on the details. Email me at Selvigfamily@gmail.com.
So, I’ve been doing the challenge for 8 days now and am down 6lbs and have lost 5 inches off my waist. I’m going to share with you what I have been doing and what some of the people in our Facebook group are doing to get those kinds of results.
- INTERNAL CONSUMPTION OF ESSENTIAL OILS: Well, the most impressive of all the Slique products is one called CitraSlim. This product is herbs and oils in capsules that you take every day.
With simple instructions, Slique CitraSlim is very easy to incorporate in your day. Take the first pack of powder capsules with breakfast and the the next two before 3pm.

So most people lost 2 inches on their waist in 2 months without changing their routines. So what would happen if you worked out a little? At the time of writing this post, I am 8 days into the Slique in 60 Challenge. I am down 5 inches in my waist and 6lbs are off! I have a Facebook group of people also doing the challenge with me and many are reporting at least 5lbs lost! In one week?! That is awesome!!!
Here are a few comments from people in my group over the past week:
“This morning I put on one of my favorite pair of work pants. They are loose! I found the scale this afternoon and it is confirmed! 4 pounds down!”
“Hey guys. I haven’t had the chance to make a video for my Monday results. But I have lost five pounds yay!”
“I am trying to get familiar with the Slique Products to see what they really do so I don’t want to add too many changes to my lifestyle. But…… you all are inspiring me to make some lifestyle permanent changes. Thanks . I am loving the videos. I lost 3 pounds .“
“Hi Team Faith Builders. I’m checking in on week 1. I’ve lost 6lbs and 11″ overall. While that is very exciting in itself, even more exciting is the leveling out of my blood sugar.”
2. TOPICAL APPLICATION OF CITRUS OILS
The next thing that I want to mention for weight loss is actually not an official Slique product. But it is an essential oil blend that you make yourself and apply topically. I personally have been applying 3x a day this past week on my waist… and my waist is down 5 inches! You can use any citrus oils as long as you include Grapefruit. Cypress is another good oil as well as Ledum. At first I just made a little roller ball bottle of these oils to apply and when I ran through it so quickly I decided to get serious. See that big brown bottle? That is now my fat loss potion holder.
One bottle of Young Living’s V-6 oil (Or order the Cel-Lite Massage oil designed for getting rid of cellulite!) 1 bottle of Citrus Fresh and 2 bottles of Grapefruit oil and one spicey oil like “Light Your Fire” or Cinnamon.
Pour out 1/3 of the V-6 into a container and save for later. Dump the entire Citrus Fresh bottle, one of the Grapefruit bottles, and the bottle of cinnamon into the V-6 Pump bottle. This is your ‘weight loss oil.’ Pump a few squirts into your hands and rub on areas you particularly want to lose fat in. The V-6 oil is going to help the citrus oils to stay on the area longer (they like to absorb and evaporate quickly because essential oil molecules are tiny and light). The cinnamon is going to bring the blood to the area because it is spicy. The Grapefruit and citrus oils are going to attack the slime layer surrounding your fat cells and thin it out so that fat can flush out easier.
Then, use the other Grapefruit oil to apply directly to your waist or targeted area at least once a day.
I have to tell you a story. Two years ago I went on a cruise and paid big bucks for a “fat reduction” treatment. They took my measurements and then rubbed my skin with a “skin brush” (it hurt) to increase circulation in my skin. Then they applied essential oils all over me and wrapped me up. I laid all wrapped up in these oils for an hour. When I was all cleaned up, they measured me again. I had lost over an inch on my waist. The lady who did the treatment told me she used to be a size 16 and was now an 8 and had gotten there with these treatments. She explained that the oils ate up the fat cells. I was skeptical but the tape measure didn’t lie. So when I heard about using oils this way to lose inches, it didn’t take much for me to understand the concept.
Other blends I have heard worked: Grapefruit/Tangerine/Lime/Light the Fire and Citrus Fresh/Ledum
If you need to cut corners because of money, just buy the grapefruit oil and apply daily several times to where you want to target. But you will run out and you will be sad. Try to get at least 2 bottles of Grapefruit and commit to applying 3x a day for a month and see if you have results!
#NOTE: DO NOT INTERNALLY TAKE ANY OTHER BRAND OF OIL BESIDES YOUNG LIVING!!!
As a Certified Aromatherapist, I learned that most oil companies do not own their own farms or distilleries, they simply buy oils from the perfume companies and put their own labels on the bottles. The perfume industry oils were not developed for health and wellness and most distilleries are made from aluminum, which leaches into the oils…which can get into your body. PLEASE, you are better off to not do essential oils at all than to put oils tainted with aluminum and the synthetics that perfume companies often add to their oils to make them cheaper. Young Living is all organic and uses surgical stainless steel distilleries to ensure Therapeutic grade and that you are safe to take internally. This is the only company I will use for safety reasons.
A little goes a long way. You only need a drop or two in your water. There are about 350 drops in this bottle. This formula is sweetened a little with stevia is developed to add to your drinking water. It has the following oils in it: Grapefruit EO (Citrus paradisi), Tangerine EO (Citrus reticulata), Spearmint EO (Mentha spicata), Lemon EO (Citrus limon), Ocotea (Ocotea quixos). Remember that the Citrus oils will help thin the slime layers and release fat. The Ocotea oil supports healthy blood sugar levels!
Another option would be to drink your water with a few drops of Grapefruit, Lemon, Orange, Tangerine, Lime or Bergamot (all citrus oils). It is a new world of drinking water! The flavor is wonderful!

How do Slique bars work? While developing the bars, Young Living focused on three key components: potato skin extract, fiber, and nutrition.
Potato skin extract contains a special protein that increases your body’s release of cholecystokinin (CCK). The body uses CCK to signal to your brain that food has been eaten, promoting feelings of fullness sooner and for longer periods of time, thereby managing hunger. Unlike so-called “fat burners” found on the market today, this all-natural ingredient does not stimulate metabolism, cause jitters, or have other side effects generally associated with commonly used weight-management ingredients.
Fiber found in chicory root inulin is insoluble, meaning it is not digested or absorbed in the digestive tract. This bulk material takes up space, helping you feel full and avoid overeating.
Essential nutrition comes from exotic nuts and berries, including baru nuts, goldenberries, and wolfberries. D. Gary Young also added cacao nibs that are prepared using a unique dehydration process. Our nibs are dried using low heat to preserve more of the cacao’s rich health benefits.
Powered by these key components, Slique Bars can help you feel fuller longer. They are the perfect snack to help you avoid mindless eating between meals and before or after workouts! -$17.75 per box of 6
