10 Surprising uses for grapefruit oil

A tiny bottle of goodness has been hiding in my cupboard of over 12 months and I can't believe it's taken me so long to embrace its benefits!

Since returning from holidays, I've embarked on a tremendous journey of culling. I'm getting rid of clothes, shoes, cutlery, my mismatched jar collection (to my husband's great joy), books, and now most recently essential oils. While I know they say that they are "essential" for the last 2 years some of these oils remain unopened. I've bought so many, that I've forgotten or didn't bother researching what I was supposed to do with them.

One such oil that I picked up this morning is grapefruit oil. After a quick Google search of possible uses and benefits I'm blown away by its versatility and benefits. Here's 10 reasons why you need grapefruit oil in your life.

10 Grapefruit Essential Oil Uses and Benefits

  1. This is a must for battling teenage (or adult) acne. Adding Grapefruit essential oil to your nightly facial routine can help clear up breakouts, you just need to avoid sun exposure for up to 12 hours after applying any citrus oil topically.
     
  2. Grapefruit essential oil helps boost your motivation to meet your goals. Simply add a few drops of Grapefruit oil into a diffuser to help increase motivation. 
     
  3. It tastes great! Add grapefruit oil to you smoothies, Acai bowls and juices.
     
  4. It supports a healthy metabolism. You can add one to two drops of Grapefruit oil to your water.
     
  5. It's a great pick-me-up after a long day, massage a little Grapefruit oil into tight spots in your body. The uplifting scent of Grapefruit oil will leave behind a light, uplifting fragrance and will also help improve the appearance of blemishes where it is applied.
     
  6. It can help improve the relationship with your body - simply rub one to two drops of Grapefruit essential oil on your stomach to help you have a healthy emotional relationship with your body. 
     
  7. If you are feeling tense or down, rub one to two drops of Grapefruit oil onto your neck and shoulders for positive vibes. Grapefruit essential oil will help promote feelings of vitality and will uplift mood. 
     
  8. You can add Grapefruit oil to your scrubs and body wash to help soothe the skin and invigorate the mind. 
     
  9. Help increase focus and concentration, by diffusing Grapefruit oil to help promote a sense of focus while studying or reading. 
     
  10. For a citrus diffuser blend you can’t get enough of, put two drops of Grapefruit, two drops of Juniper Berry, and one drop of Wild Orange in a diffuser. Limonene, the main chemical constituent of both Wild Orange and Grapefruit oils, will produce the uplifting aroma emitted from this citrus blend, while Juniper Berry’s woody scent will create a calming and grounding effect. You will love the stimulating effects of this amazing blend.

There's a little saying I like to go by, if you can't tone it, tan it! I won't lie, I'm quite partial to sporting a year round tan. There is something about having that sun-kissed glow that makes you feel and look a little leaner, and dare I say a tad sexier. The good news is that with all the amazing advancements in natural skin care products, you can get that glow without worrying about nasty toxins, sun damaged skin or looking like an Oompa Loompa.
