Spotlight: Grapefruit Essential Oil

The scent of Grapefruit essential oil is so pleasant that it can instantly lighten your mood. It's like ripping open the biggest, perfectly ripe grapefruit during Summer.

This cheery oil has multiple uses and benefits.  It is cold pressed from grapefruit rinds to preserve its delicate nature and potent properties.

    Acne - Colds and Flu - Constipation - Depression - Mental Clarity & Focus -  Skin Conditions (oily skin in particular) - Weightloss

    Now let's talk a little about Grapefruit Essential Oil. 

    Brighten Your Mood.  This oil does not just smell good, it does a mood good.  I love to diffuse this in my home or wear it on my wrists, especially when I am feeling stressed or overwhelmed. Diffusing Grapefruit helps to clean the air while it also energizes and uplifts your mind and body. 

    Increase Focus.  Diffuse 3-4 drops when studying or reading to help your mind stay focused.

    Fight Allergies and/or Diarrhea.  Mix 3-5 drops with water or juice. Drink 2-3 times per day.

    Decrease Insect Bite Irritation.  Apply to insect bites (or minor skin irritations) to reduce irritation.  Dilute with a carrier oil for sensitive skin.

    Reduce Appetite.  Take a drop in the palm of your hand (or make a tissue tent).  Rub your hands together, cup over your nose and inhale deeply 3 times before a meal to help reduce appetite. 

    Help Maintain A Healthy Metabolism/Cleanse & Purify Your System.  Mix 1-2 drops to 8-16 oz. of water and drink. (I love it over ice.)

    Clean Your Fruits & Veggies.  Add several drops to a large bowl or sink of water and wash fruits or vegetables before eating.

    Clean Your Toothbrush After Cleaning Your Teeth.  Put a few drops in a glass of water.  Leave your toothbrush in overnight to disinfect.

    Fight The Effects Of Cold/Flu.  On the onset of cold or flu symptoms, combine 1-2 drops with a carrier oil.  Help your body detoxify and stimulate your lymph nodes by applying the oil with a lymphatic massage.

    The 15ml bottle will yield approximately 250 drops of oil!

    **There is a concern with the consumption of Grapefruit while taking certain medications. The compound that causes problems with prescription meds by interfering with or amplifying the body's ability to absorb the medication is called Naringin and is not present in Grapefruit essential oil.  If you are concerned, please speak with your physician before taking the oil internally.  Take the time to do a bit of research on your own and you will find that the ingredient which causes the problems is not present in the oils.

    If you are pregnant, nursing, or under a doctor's care, consult your physician.
