Grapefruit Oil, like all citrus peel oils, have a predominance of Limonene, the bright, lemony monoterpene that provides an absolutely delightful aroma when diffused to refresh and disinfect room environments. Grapefruit (Citrus paradisi) is a hybrid of Pomelo (Citrus maxima) and Sweet Orange (Citrus x sinensis). Its olfactory character is almost entirely attributed to powerful trace components, most notably Nootkatone and traces of a sulfur-containing compound.
Apart from being an exceptionally refreshing purifier, Grapefruit Oil is renowned for its broad spectrum of uplifting effects on the body and mind. Grapefruit Essential Oil is useful when looking to support minor pain and inflammation relief, to help build up the immune system, as a lymphatic stimulant, and as a tonic for promoting healthy skin. Like other astringent citrus oils, Grapefruit Oil is believed to restore smoothness and suppleness and to beautify the skin.
Emotionally and energetically, Grapefruit Essential Oil is uplifting and cleansing. This essential oil promotes positive energy and is a welcome comfort when dealing with tension and situational depression. A mild euphoric, Grapefruit Essential Oil can soothe and uplift the emotions and spirit and help balance a tired and overstimulated nervous system. Its light, zesty aromatic profile imparts those same qualities upon inhalation.
