Grapefruit Essential Oil Uses:
I'm not especially fond of eating grapefruit, but I adore Grapefruit Essential Oil, and use it regularly in the diffuser. When I first began learning about aromatherapy in the '90s, I expected Grapefruit Essential Oil to smell rather harsh and bitter. I was glad to be so wrong when I enjoyed my first whiff. Instead, Grapefruit Oil has a pleasantly sweet, tangy/tart aroma that blends well with a number of other essential oils. For a lovely aromatic combination, try blending it with Frankincense Oil. I also love it blending with conifers like Fir Needle Oil. Grapefruit Essential Oil is a wonderfully energizing oil that isn't too strong or overpowering. I love diffusing it in the mornings or at times of the day when I need a bit of a boost. Grapefruit Oil is also great to diffuse with other energizing oils like rosemary because it lightens up and sweetens the blend.
Both white and pink grapefruit oils are available, with Pink Grapefruit Essential Oil generally being considered the sweeter of the two.
