All About Grapefruit Essential Oil


It' s GRRRR...APE!


Grapefruit is seriously a gal's best friend! It is the one I give away as a sample more than any other. It tastes great in water and if you want to stop sugar cravings, this is the oil!  Add that to the fact that it has strong fat dissolving properties and you have a great tool for weight loss.  It is said to firm the skin.  Many testify that it reduces the look of cellulite if you rub it on the body. Others ascertain that it will help you lose fat in areas if you rub in before exercise. I do not know if these are true. There really is no magic pill to weight loss. But I can for sure attest to the fact that adding a few drops to my water keeps me from reaching for a mid-morning and mid-afternoon snack and helps me drink more water.

Interestingly enough,  I have lost 6 lbs since it arrived in the mail. Coincidence? Maybe. Or maybe it is just that GRRRRape!

Here's how others are unleashing the power of grapefruit
  • Mix with peppermint and rub on feet to cool and soothe.
  • In a whipped body butter to tighten skin (Can just add a few drops to coconut oil to make it simpler.)
  • In water as an appetite suppressant.
  • Apply directly on the face to help stop a runny nose.
  • Dab on wrists for a quick pick me up.
  • In a diffuser, helps to cheer and uplift. 
  • I add a drop to my shampoo to make my hair extra shiny.
  • Dab a bit under each eye to firm bags (who has those?)
  • As with lemon and orange, can be mixed with water as a disinfectant spray.
  • Grapefruit promotes healthy cortisol levels.

* A little warning: Most citrus oils can cause sensitivity to sunlight when rubbed on skin. Use caution for 12 hours after application.
**One more warning. Not all essential oils are created equally. There are few brands that I would recommend using internally. Email me for suggestions.
