Grapefruit essential oil helps remind us of those life-giving and inspiring moments of our lives.
Letting your toes soak into the ocean, sipping coffee on a quiet morning, landing a job or getting on a plane to an exotic location. Grapefruit essential oil benefits emotional wellbeing with its unique properties that uplift, revive and inspire healthy lifestyles.
During a massage, Grapefruit essential oil (within carrier oil) stimulates the senses while beautifying the skin. Its zesty, bitter-sweet-citrus essence instills a wonderful sense of cheeriness and balance. Grapefruit bursts with aliveness and friendliness, making it a positive addition to the rooms of seniors, children and those convalescing.
Grapefruit is harvested from a sub-tropical tree that grows 30 to 50 feet in height and produces fragrant white flowers that develop into large yellow fruits. The peel is removed and cold pressed to extract the essential oil. It has a thin consistency and has a faint orange color. Grapefruit oil is an enlivening and catalytic addition to any of EG's citrus single oils or synergy blends.
