Grapefruit is one of my favorite citrus oils! I bet you immediately think of the taste when I mention it, but did you know that there are various uses for it?
I love putting a few drops in my water for a refreshing and sweet twist. It also helps to rid the body of toxins, making it a fantastic detox and metabolism boosting drink. You can also add a couple of drops to smoothies and acai bowls. Yum!
Grapefruit oil is also amazing in the diffuser! It is a fantastic way to energize and motivate your day, especially if you are spring cleaning! It also promotes a sense of clarity and can lift up your mood. I find it very helpful when I’m reading or studying too. It helps with my focus.
This is also a great oil to use topically. Add a few drops to your facial cream for clearer, healthy looking skin. It works great on blemishes too (I’m looking at those teenagers!). Just be sure to avoid direct sunlight for up to 12 hours. I prefer to use it topically at night. Need a quick pick me up? Add it to your body washes and scrubs, or use as a massaging oil.
I like to play with blending grapefruit with other oils. Some of my favorite are:
