Grapefruit essential oil is a potent extract derived from the Citrus paradisi grapefruit plant.

Having been used for centuries to help beat inflammation, weight gain, sugar cravings and even hangover symptoms, it’s considered a natural stress-fighter, anti-inflammatory, antioxidant food and anticarcinogenic.

As one of the most versatile essential oils, the aroma of grapefruit oil is clean, fresh and a little bit bitter, just like the actual fruit itself. It has the signature taste and smell of citrus fruits.

Grapefruit essential oil benefits include:

Disinfecting surfaces
Cleansing the body
Reducing depression
Stimulating the immune system
Decreasing fluid retention
Curbing sugar cravings
Helping with weight los

Grapefruit oil is naturally high in antioxidants and phytochemicals that reduce oxidative stress and disease-causing inflammation.
Many commercially made lotions and soaps add citrus oils to their blends because of their antibacterial, skin-boosting properties.

Not only is grapefruit essential oil able to help fight bacteria and greasiness that can cause acne blemishes, but it’s also useful for keeping skin’s immunity strong against indoor and outdoor air pollution and UV light damage — plus helps you get rid of cellulite.

It’s also been found to help heal wounds, cuts, bites and to prevent skin infections.
