Grapefruit essential oil has an uplifting, tangy, citrus aroma. It is a refreshing, stimulating oil that helps to energise the mind and body. It is also believed to help rid the body of toxins. A great detox oil when used in massage blends. Good for burning to clear negative energy.
When used in a cream or oil blend it is cleansing for the skin and has an astringent and toning effect that is particularly beneficial for oily and acne prone skin. It is also thought to have a tonic effect on the scalp.
Grapefruit essential oil is mentally rejuvenating and can help relieve stress, tension, nervous exhaustion, negative feelings and black thoughts. I have used this for years in holistic treatments for clients who suffer from depression.
Grapefruit essential oil helps boost the immune system and can help treat colds and flu. It is often used in aromatherapy massage to improve lymphatic drainage, and to reduce water retention and cellulite. It can also be used in massage to help disperse lactic acid and ease muscle stiffness
