Grapefruit Essential Oil

Another oil from the citrus family, Grapefruit essential oil is considered to be a very uplifting and stimulating oil. It can be used to help treat depression and anxiety and can be useful in times of stress. As it has astringent qualities, Grapefruit oil is a useful treatment for oily skin conditions such as acne and pimples. It also has a diuretic effect therefore can help fluid retention and oedema.

Grapefruit essential oil has a fresh and lively fragrance as is so common with most of the citrus oils and it's a great choice for using in a burner or oil vaporizer. Try using a few drops of it to create an uplifting and positive atmosphere in your home. It can be blended easily with any of the other citrus oils such as Lemon, Orange and Tangerine to create a fruity mix!
