Benefits of Grapefruit Oil

by tracey

Grapefruit oil might not be the first to come to mind when you think of citrus oils, but it is actually a very versatile oil. It features the light, bright scent associated with all of the citrus oils, but it offers a variety of different benefits. The oil is taken from the rind and flesh of the fruit and provides an uplifting, energizing boost for users.

Grapefruit oil might be best known for helping digestion and easing anxiety. It detoxifies the body by stimulating the lymphatic system and helps with the digestion of fat. Some even find it is effective for reducing cellulite.

Additionally, grapefruit oil is used to treat depression and anxiety. Some believe it is the uplifting scent of the oil that helps with these emotional struggles, but there might be other factors at play, too.

In addition to the ailments listed above, grapefruit oil is also an effective treatment for treating hangovers, fluid retention, and water retention related to PMS.

Grapefruit oil can be added to lotion or base oil to create a body rub or added to a warm bath for a soak. Another popular way to enjoy the benefits of grapefruit oil is to warm it in an oil burner. Some also use grapefruit oil for cleaning because its fresh scent lingers long after use.
