Grapefruit essential oil has a sweet, muted floral, citrusy aroma that is more appealing than you would imagine since it is cold-pressed from the peel of the citrus, grapefruit. It really is an oil to consider trying, as it is one of the uplifting oils that cools the body, and is a wonderful companion to many others in blends. It is a fun one to experiment around with.
Grapefruit increases circulation, stimulates the lymphatic system, and reduces fluid retention. It is a key ingredient in a good formula to reduce the appearance of cellulite. It is used to relieve muscle fatigue and pain by massage and is also an astringent for oily skin conditions.
It blends well with the other citrus oils such as bergamot and neroli; and also really well with frankincense, juniper, ylang-ylang, fennel, and black pepper, just to name a few. It is outstanding in baths, muscle rubs, and skin facial toners. For an extra energizing blend for mental focus, use it in a diffuser or in the bath.
