DoTERRA Grapefruit Essential Oil
DoTERRA Grapefruit essential oil has an amazing smell and is definitely in my top 20 oils, while it isn’t an oil I use constantly I do use it quite a bit. It can be used all three ways, aromatically, topically and internally. I especially enjoy using it in my facial cleanser as it improves the appearance of blemishes. It is like a breath of fresh air when using it and uplifts my mood anytime I use it.
Grapefruit is referred to as a “forbidden fruit” and one of the “Seven Wonders of Barbados” It was first documented in 1750 by Welshman Rev. Griffith Hughes. Grapefruit got its name from the fruit growing in clusters just like grapes do. The essential oil itself is extracted from the rinds (peels) of the grapefruit by cold pressure.
Some uses for grapefruit essential oil include; putting a drop in facial cleanser to improve blemishes, however since it is a citrus oil, avoid sun exposure as it can potentially harm skin, if using the oil put it on areas that aren’t exposed to sunlight. Grapefruit is great to use while dieting or trying to lose weight to increase motivation. I’ve been using grapefruit on the bottom of my feet before I go to the gym and stay motivated to work out. Also you can add two drops to your water to support a healthy metabolism*. Since grapefruit has a citrus, floral and fruity smell so it uplifts moods.
Grapefruit can also be found in the Slim and Sassy products, which is doTERRA’s Proprietary metabolic blend. Grapefruit essential oil is a great oil to use And has many different uses. My sister enjoys baking so she makes a grapefruit yogurt dip which is amazing.
My family uses The Essential Life, 4th Edition book for any issue that is going on with us. It is a book I highly suggest you have if you are interested in learning about essential oils or want to live a more natural lifestyle. Of course you can also email me at email@example.com and I would be more than happy to answer any questions you have.
One of my favorite rollerball blends that has grapefruit in it is a Energy blend. I use this blend on days that I am feeling tired or when I go to the gym. It really helps maintain energy during my workouts and allows me to fully complete a workout without having to stop.
