Grapefruit is renowned for its ability to cleanse the body from the inside out and is frequently used in skin care products for its capacity to promote clear, radiant, and healthy looking skin. Known as one of the restorative and cleansing citrus fruits, Grapefruit can support a healthy metabolism while maintaining steady energy and stamina levels, making it easier to work toward reaching your health and wellness goals.

With its energizing and invigorating aroma, doTERRA Grapefruit essential oil is also a powerful mood booster and motivator, helping you to make the mental switch from seeing what previously seemed impossible as possible. When applied correctly, Grapefruit can cleanse your body and your mind, freeing your life from the cumbersome accumulation of the physical and psychological toxins that beset us all.

The history of Grapefruit reaches back to the 1700s, when Welshman Reverend Griffith Hughes first recorded the fruit in 1750. Since then it has come to be known as the “forbidden fruit” and one of the “Seven Wonders of Barbados.” The name of this powerful citrus fruit comes from the fact that the fruit grows in clusters on the tree and these clusters strongly resemble the way grapes grow together, hence the name “grapefruit.”.

The aroma of Grapefruit essential oil is strikingly fresh, bold, and a little sour, much like the fruit itself. Just like many of the other citrus oils, Grapefruit instills a sense of sunshine in your life with its ability to lighten your toxic load and breathe life into skin rife with blemishes, a lagging metabolism, or plummeting energy levels.

Whether you choose to add a couple drops of doTERRA Grapefruit essential oil to water to help keep your diet on track or to add a small amount that’s diluted appropriately with Fractionated Coconut Oil to your teenager’s blemishes, Grapefruit can be counted on to take out the bad and bring in the good to your life on a physical and mental level.
