Essential Oil Feature – Grapefruit (Citrus paradisi)

Grapefruit is a top note with a wonderful fresh, citrus, sweet and fruity aroma. It is uplifting, highly energetic and radiates happy, outward energy. However, that is not all Grapefruit has to offer! Being part of the monoterpene chemical family and high in limonene, Grapefruit has anti-inflammatory, antibacterial and analgesic* therapeutic properties. Along with that it can help activate white blood cells, helps stimulate your immune system and aids in the reduction of fluid retention.

Use it in a room spray or diffuser any time of year. It will bring freshness and sunshine to whatever space you’re in.

Or, try it next time you have a headache. Especially those caused by stress, tension or depression. Don’t forget to dilute it in a carrier oil. It is not recommended to use this essential oil neat as it may cause skin irritation. It is also phototoxic in dilutions over 4%.

If you are interested in purchasing Grapefruit essential oil or having a custom blend made for you let me know. I’d be happy to make your day brighter or bring some pain relief.
