When it comes to lifting spirits and cleaning the house, citrus oils are the leaders. It’s amazing the amount of choice and variety that exist in just this one genus of Citrus plants. One such species is Citrus paradisi – the Grapefruit.
Grapefruit earned its name from the resemblance of growing in clusters like grapes. While Citrus plants were first found predominantly in Asian regions, they quickly spread across the world because of their abundant benefits. The grapefruit is a product of this spread and the hybrid crossing of two species on the island of Barbados. Once “rediscovered” in the 1750s, grapefruits spread back into the world as an amazing Citrus variety.
Grapefruit essential oil has a sweeter, less tart aroma than its Wild Orange (Citrus sinensis) and Lemon (Citrus limon) cousins. It still packs the pungent tanginess that is ready to stimulate your senses, uplift your mood, and provide mental clarity. Its invigorating presence will boost energy and create an atmosphere to get things finished. These properties make Grapefruit a great choice for diffusing throughout a space with an ultrasonic aromatherapy diffuser.
Just like other citrus essential oils, Grapefruit is also an excellent choice as a cleaning and purifying solution. Its antibacterial and antifungal effects fight microbes to help your body and household stay healthy. Simply add 20 drops of Grapefruit essential oil to a 16 oz. spray bottle of water and you’re ready to clean. You can also dilute Grapefruit with a carrier oil such as Immerse and apply it topically to help improve your skin’s complexion and health.
With its sweeter aroma, Grapefruit essential oil is a popular pick among the many citrus choices. Talk to your PURELY Independent Advisor about trying all of our citrus essential oils and finding your favorite!
