Therapeutic Grade Grapefruit Essential Oil (Citrus paradisi) has a refreshing and uplifting aroma when diffused. This scent is described by many as sweet, fresh, citrusy, and zesty. It can help one experience a euphoric pick-me-up if one is feeling unhappy or stressed. It may also help enhance flavors of food and beverages.
Pure grapefruit essential oil is rich in the cell protectant, d-limonene, which is a power antioxidant as well as nourishing to the skin when applied topically. It was traditionally used to support the natural defenses of the body.
Grapefruit essential oil has also been studied for being an appetite suppressant. When inhaled, it can create a sense of fullness. Like many other cold-pressed citrus oils, it can help dissolve fat because of its unique fat-dissolving characteristics. This makes grapefruit a popular choice when used in conjunction with a healthy weight-management system.
