How to Use Grapefruit Essential Oil

Grapefruit Essential Oil

As the season heats up, it’s time to spotlight one of my favorite dōTERRA citrus oils, Grapefruit! The summer is generally a time to get organized, in shape, and ready for vacations.  I use doTERRA Grapefruit essential oil as part of a spring and summer detox routine. I also use it for everything from occasional blemishes to crushing sugar cravings and everything in between! Below are my top tips for loving summer with Grapefruit Essential Oil!

Where Do I Start?

First, it’s essential that you know not all essential oils are created equally. Be sure to purchase responsibly. The market is not regulated strictly. Furthermore, labels can claim an oil is 100% pure, but it doesn’t guarantee that you’re getting the most pure, effective, and safe product.

Additionally, most brand-name oils cannot be taken internally. This typically, but not always, indicates that there may be hidden additives in that bottle. Please, only use dōTERRA’s certified pure therapeutic grade essential oils. We must do searching and find the facts for ourselves.

I’ve fallen in love dōTERRA, an incredible company. They have top scientist in the essential oil industry and in the medical field as partners and consultants to ensure safety. They also assist communities in impoverished areas. Not to mention, they have their own foundation, the Healing Hands Foundation, that brings doctors, schools, food, jobs, clean water, and resources to people in need. I would LOVE to help you get started with the best oils around!

What is Grapefruit Essential Oil?

Grapefruit essential oil comes from the rind of this fruit. The aroma of Grapefruit essential oil provides an invigorating and energizing aroma. Diffused Grapefruit oil invokes a sense of clarity, and due to its main chemical component, limonine, can help to uplift mood. With its powerful cleansing properties, Grapefruit oil is valued for its skin care benefits and ability to promote the appearance of clear, healthy-looking skin when applied topically. When used internally, Grapefruit oil can help support a healthy metabolism.

The main chemical constituent of Grapefruit essential oil is d-limonene. Limonene is in the monoterpenes group and possesses strong uplifting aromatic characteristics. The uplifting benefits found in limonene are what make Grapefruit oil a great oil for aromatic use. Limonene also has the ability to dissolve oils, which makes it a common ingredient in hand cleansers.
