Grapefruit essential oil smells so fresh and citrusy and is best known for its uplifting qualities! Want to know how I use it most?
1- In Water. When I’m at home and feeling detox-y, I add it to my lemon water along with black pepper essential oil. When I’m traveling and drinking local tap water, I add it for its antimicrobial properties.
2- For Yoga. I love it mixed with cinnamon for an uplifting and invigorating blend for yoga, either rubbed between the hands and on the bottoms of the feet or diffused nearby.
3- For a DIY Candle Project. I recently tested my hand at a DIY soy-candle and added grapefruit as the primary essential oil in the final stages, secondary oils: cinnamon, peppermint, lemon, ginger and sandalwood. Mmm, smells like what I imagine sunrise to smell like!
I’m also going to experiment to test out its claim to lower blood pressure, i’ll keep you posted! Grapefruit essential oil is another great basic EO with a lot of great properties and diverse uses! You can read more about it here.
