    Grapefruit

    Grapefruit originates from the Caribbean and is grown widely in the USA, South America, the Caribbean and Israel. Grapefruit oil is expressed from the peel of the fruit, and can be yellowfins, pale green or orange, with a tangy, zesty, sweet citrus smell.



    Key actions:
    Energising and uplifting.


    Benefits:
    Skin
    Cooling, gently antiseptic qualities treat oily skin, help to open pores and acne. Can help to tone and tighten loose skin.


    Digestion
    Gentle abdominal massage will encourage peristalsis and help relieve constipation. Grapefruit helps to stimulate the metabolism of fats and can help to reduce appetite.


    Detox
    When used as a massage oil it supports the liver and aids lymphatic cleansing. Its diuretic properties help to reduce cellulite and fluid retention.


    Respiratory
    Grapefruit oil is great for treating colds and flu with feverish symptoms; it also helps to loosen mucous and catarrh.


    Mind and emotions
    This zesty oil helps to lift the spirit; a great pick me up following a hangover, a late night or over indulgence.

    I have to agree with you on this one, I couldn’t eat a grapefruit without a large amount of sugar on the top! This is an essential oil so can be applied to the skin which would smell amazing whilst giving health benefits too

    I think any benefits would have been counteracted by all the sugar! Iím surprised your mum allowed you to do that, given her clear attempt at a health conscious approach!

    Personally I love the tang of red grapefruit.
