Grapefruit Essential Oil has traditionally been used as an astringent skin conditioner. It makes a great addition to a massage blend if you're looking to detoxify and purify.

Its naturally energising and uplifting scent is ideal for helping you stay focused and alert, so it may be particularly helpful to those studying or when you have a large workload to get through.

Its a lovely, fresh and fruity oil that is pleasing to most and blends beautifully with other oils. It is also renowned for its 'feel good' properties and studies have shown it could potentially be a useful oil to diffuse during the winter to help with the seasonal adjustment.

Grapefruit is a relatively modern fruit, the hybridized offspring that resulted from an affair between a pumelo and an orange tree.

Dilute in a carrier oil before skin application. Keep away from children and out of eyes. Do not take internally or apply undiluted to the skin. For further advice on using essential oils to treat medical conditions, we recommend you seek advice from a professional.

I ordered the grapefruit essential oil based on the previous review as I had never tried any grapefruit oil before. I find the scent is very refreshing, I add a drop in my daily face cream in the morning when I feel I need a bit of boost, it works well. By the way, the price and delivery service is second to none. Thank you.

Gorgeous scent! Fresh, invigorating and uplifting. Perfect for lifting the soul after a long day at work, or for relaxing on a sunny day. My 'go to' essential oil for my oil burner.
