Grapefruit Essential Oil has distinct properties that may offer a variety of health benefits - including reduced blood pressure and stress levels. Sourced from the peel of the Citrus paradisi fruit, proponents suggest that breathing in the oil's tangy scent can help lift your mood and offer a variety of benefits.
Inhaling the aroma of grapefruit essential oil (or absorbing grapefruit essential oil through the skin) is thought to transmit messages to a brain region involved in controlling emotions. Known as the limbic system, this brain region also influences the nervous system. Aromatherapy proponents suggest that essential oils may affect a number of biological factors, including heart rate, stress levels, blood pressure, breathing, and immune function.
Grapefruit essential oil is also used to reduce stress, stimulate circulation, increase energy, enhance mood, and improve digestion.
Ancient Wisdom has been sourcing and bottling essential oils for over 22 years and studiously selects all of its oils, which are more often than not bought from primary sources. All oils are tested for purity and subjected to rigorous quality control standards. Organic oils are derived from plants that are not grown using pesticides, fertilizers or other chemicals.
Please note that essential oils, while delightful, versatile and generally wonderful, are also very concentrated and contain active ingredients. They should not be ingested, be kept out of the reach of children and animals and diluted before use. Some have specific contraindications, and some should be avoided during pregnacy. The information on this website is for guidance only. It is not medical advice. We strongly recommend looking up the uses, properties and contraindications of the oils you intend to use. Also please consult a trained aromatherapist, medical practitioner, or other practitioner skilled in the use of essential oils if you are looking to treat a specific condition.
