Check out our eight things you should know about Grapefruit essential oil and Grapefruit Vitality to learn more about these all-stars!
1. Origin story
Grapefruit trees can be quite tall reaching up to 20 feet! They have lush, dense foliage, and the grape-like clusters of fruit are the source of the unique name. We cold press peels of the fresh fruit to distil this citrus essential oil and bottle the inviting smell of a grapefruit orchard for you.
2. Room refresher
Want your living room to feel like a sunny beach house or your bathroom to feel like a sleek spa? Grapefruit's complex scent is a welcome burst of freshness on its own or when combined with other essential oils.
We love to mix equal parts Grapefruit, Peppermint, Orange, Lemon, and Bergamot along with distilled water to create a DIY room refresher. Spray anywhere you'd like an uplifting and energizing scent!
3. Skin-cleansing superpowers
Grapefruit's great scent isn't the only reason you can find it in luxurious facial and body cleansers. Grapefruit essential oil's benefits also include its skin-cleansing properties, which leave skin with a smooth-looking glow. Refresh your evening ritual by adding Grapefruit essential oil to your lotions, toners, or cleansers, so you can see the benefits to your skin firsthand.
Keep in mind that Grapefruit is a photosensitive oil, and it's recommended that you avoid sunlight and UV rays for 12 hours after topical application.
4. Blissful blends
Grapefruit oil's sweet, invigorating scent is what makes it easy to associate this essential oil with feelings of joy, satisfaction, and playfulness. That's why it's a favorite for summery blends that can brighten any day the whole year through. Use the following blend for a bright, happy scent in your office, bedroom, or kitchen!
