Grapefruit essential oil is one of my favorite oils. I once received a shower wash called Gloomaway (from Origins store), and it really did brighten my morning. Ever since then, I have been a fan of grapefruit oil – it makes my morning come alive!!
So I was really pleased to come across this article on Sustainable Baby Steps that talks about the uses, benefits, and precautions of grapefruit oil.
Grapefruit essential oil (Citrus x paradisi), a lesser used but very potent and therapeutic oil, is created by cold-pressing the rind of the fruit to extract the oil. There’s a reason eating a grapefruit for breakfast was a long-time weight loss fad. The oils in this fruit are incredibly beneficial to the metabolism. The aroma of the oil is clean, fresh, a little bitter, and of course, citrusy. (Hooda thunk it?)
