Are you feeling the blues? Do you wish you had more energy and a positive outlook on life? Grapefruit will be a burst of sunlight on a cloudy day!
Often referred to as the “forbidden fruit”, grapefruit offers a number of health benefits that fortify overall health. For instance, the oil possesses natural purifying and cleansing properties that help protect against skin problems.
Grapefruit oil is also said to support proper metabolic function, which can strengthen your ability to stay healthy and fit. The oil soothes sore muscles and joints, while combatting physical and mental fatigue. The oil’s strong purifying and cleansing properties, along with its natural ability to invigorate, make it one powerful agent to have on hand when you’re gearing up to get in shape.
To sharpen focus, add 3-4 drops grapefruit to a diffuser and inhale deeply. You can also use grapefruit topically for minor skin issues and bug bites. Simply dilute and apply it to the area of concern.
For muscle and joint discomfort, massage 1-2 drops gently into the affected area. You can also use grapefruit to clear up breathing through diffusion or a topical application to the chest.
