Some information about grapefruit

Organic grapefruit essential oil

Organic grapefruit essential oilThe name comes from the Dutch "pomplemoes", literally "big lemon". Grapefruit was discovered in Asia. After being brought back to Europe during the Renaissance, it was brought to Florida where it flourished much better. The grapefruit, which has only recently been commercialised in the West, is mainly used in cooking (fruit salad, confit). Grapefruit essential oil is greenish yellow in colour and has a fresh citrus scent, close to that of fresh fruit.

Its fruity, sweet and tangy scent blends well with bergamot, cedar, geranium and ylang-ylang. Stimulating and contracting the tissues, it can be used on oily skin and pimples. Stimulating the digestive system, it helps the body to get rid of excess toxins.

It is a perfect oil to diffuse to fight against depression, fatigue in general or to refresh the atmosphere of a room.

Usage tips

Essential oils are powerful natural substances and should therefore be used with care. Even if essential oils have been used since Antiquity, their mode of use and the precautions for use are often poorly known. Many books deal with essential oils. It is therefore advisable to refer to it to find out about the traditional modes of use.

As an indication, some examples of use 

 

Application by massage or compress

It is advisable to mix a few drops of essential oil with a vegetable oil (sweet almond, jojoba, macadamia, rose hip, argan, olive, etc.) to use as a massage oil.

To regain a positive state of mind, you can dilute 60 to 80 drops in 100 ml of a vegetable oil, then massage the back and solar plexus.

In cosmetic care, you can incorporate 1 drop of grapefruit essential oil in a lotion to strengthen the hair and 1 drop also in a cream against oily skin.

To help purify and tone the skin, pour a vegetable oil of jojoba into the palm of your hand and add 3 to 5 drops of grapefruit essential oil (or 1 drop in a day cream)

 

Use by diffusionGrapefruit essential oil used in diffusion will eliminate bad smells but also disinfect the ambient air (often used in hospitals in particular). Diffuse for 30 minutes twice a day. 

  

Oral use

To improve appetite and contribute to a good digestion, you can dilute 1 drop of grapefruit essential oil in a teaspoon of honey or vegetable oil, 1 to 3 times a day (maximum daily dose: 3 drops, i.e. 0.12 ml).

To flavour desserts, infusions, ... 1 drop previously diluted in honey, milk or oil.

100% pure and natural oil

An essential oil is made up of chemically defined molecules (about 10,000 listed) that have been secreted by special plant cells. It can consist of from one to several hundred molecules, which helps explain why some essential oils have many properties but different therapeutic effectiveness. To guarantee the properties necessary for effective aromatherapy, it is important that an essential oil is 100% pure and natural (not cut, not deterpenated, not mixed with alcohol or vegetable oils) and preferably organic. This is the case for the essential oils we sell. They are sold in tinted bottles with a dropper cap.

Go to the "Properties and characteristics of essential oils" file. Whether pure or mixed, you can use them in our different diffuser models. The information given on each essential oil is for guidance only. Beware of self-diagnosis, do not hesitate to consult an aromatherapist or any other recognised professional and read our special file "properties of essential oils"in our thematic files.
