Grapefruit is well know for her refreshing and stimulating benefits that helps to energise the body and mind. It is also believed to help rid the body of toxins.

Benefits

The stimulating action of the aroma on the mind helps to maintain concentration whilst working and driving.

Grapefruit Essential Oil helps to stimulate the lymphatic system, which is why it is used in massage blends for the treatment of cellulite and the elimination of toxins, whilst in skincare it relieves oily or congested skin and has a toning action on tired complexions.

It has an antiseptic and antiviral action that can be used alone or in blends to protect against chills and colds and when vaporised, Grapefruit Essential Oil kills airborne bacteria thereby helping to prevent germs from spreading throughout the family or at work.

Grapefruit essential oil is mentally rejuvenating and can help relieve stress, tension, nervous exhaustion, negative feelings and negative thoughts

Uplifting and cleansing Highly energetic Reduces tension and depression Exudes happy, outward energy

Tips

Create your own “sunshine” feeling at home. Ad 2-3 drops on dried flowers in a bowl.

Ad 1-2 drops on a tissue, natural stone or in your aroma diffuser for concentration.

Safety

May cause skin irritation, especially if the oil is older and oxidized. Use in low dilution when applying to the skin, such as in baths or massage oils. According to Essential Oil Safety, by Robert Tisserand, Grapefruit is phototoxic, and limit topical use to 4% when used in a blend (24 drops maximum per ounce). Skin irritation is generally a bigger concern than phototoxicity.

The suggested shelf life is 2 years.
