Learn all about grapefruit essential oil benefits

With practicing aromatherapy on a regular basis you can create ongoing peace and balance in your life as well as feel more productive, happy, and feel excited for life.

Practicing Aromatherapy makes me feel amazed all the time by the benefits of pure substances, essential oils, to general health and well-being.
You can change your life for the better too by using oils.

We chose the grapefruit essential oil for its therapeutic action as antidepressant and a stimulant. It contains natural components that work to relax our nervous system and shows numerous health benefits for mind and body.

Citrus Paradisi

Grapefruit essential oil is cold pressed from the peels of the grapefruit.
The characteristic grapefruit aroma is fresh-citrus and sweet.

This is the reason why it is widely used in soaps and personal care products.

Grapefruit essential oil benefits and use

Apart from its antiseptic activity, it is recognised as a stimulant and more importantly as an antidepressant.

Grapefruit oil has an uplifting and reviving effect which makes it valuable for treating stress, depression and nervous exhaustion. It is especially recommended during winter time when we can feel a bit lethargic and depressed easily.
It has a tonic effect in the case of water retention and for the skin and scalp when it is used in massage blends.

The grapefruit oil is recommended if you feel tense when under pressure and tend to resort to comfort eating as a means of dealing with difficult situations.

My favourite part is the nature of the grapefruit oil, as it is warm, happy and energetic, life- and people-loving. It stimulates self-esteem, creates euphoria and self-worth.
Means of application:

  • Massage
  • Bath
  • Inhalation
  • diffuser
