Pink Grapefruit Essential Oil

Living on the west coast of Canada, winters tend to be rainy, dull and gray and a lot of people get the winter blues.

Citrus oils are perfect for anytime of year, but are especially good around February or March. They smell so fresh and crisp, they just make you feel better. My favorite citrus oil by far is Grapefruit. Both pink and white varieties are available, with the pink being the sweeter smelling of the two.

Grapefruit essential oil is cold pressed from the fruit peels and is mainly grown/ produced in USA, the West Indies, as well as Italy, and Mexico. As the only citrus fruit that is considered to be native to the new world, Grapefruit (Citrus paradisi) is thought to be a hybrid of Sweet Orange (Citrus sinensis) and Pomelo (Citrus maxima).

 It is a euphoric, stimulating essential oil that is used a lot for fragrance in soap and personal care items, but it does so much more. It may be useful for:

  • easing feelings of stress, anxiety, grief or sadness.

  • feeling lethargic 

  • using in your diffuser if you are getting a headache.

Try useing Grapefruit essential oil in a room spray or in the diffuser during cold and flu season ​

*When tested at low doses Grapefruit Essential oil is said to be non-toxic,non-irritant & non-sensitizing. Grapefruit essential oil has a very short shelf life so keep it in the fridge if you are able.

**There is conflicting research about whether or not Grapefruit essential oil causes a photosensitive skin reaction. I will continue to use caution when using Grapefruit topically by not applying to areas of my body that are exposed to the sun. (Citrus oils are best used in bath products that get washed off of your body like body wash or shampoo.)
