doTERRA’s Grapefruit Essential Oil is invigorating and uplifting. It’s one of the milder citrus oils. It is energizing and also boasts purifying and cleansing properties. This Essential Oil helps maintain a healthy metabolism, and can help promote healthy, clear skin.
Grapefruit Essential Oil is cold-compressed from the rind of the fruit. It’s an amazing flavoring for baked goods, beverages and any recipe calling for citrus.

How Our Family Uses Grapefruit Essential Oil
Our family enjoys Grapefruit oil in several ways – in the diffuser in combination with other oils, in water, in baked goods and fruit dishes, and taken internally to help curb cravings and balance metabolism.
There are three ways to use essential oils:
Aromatically – Grapefruit pairs especially well with many oils, including Frankincense, Ylang Ylang, Peppermint and Rosemary. Experiment and find the combinations you like!
Topically – I love to apply diluted Grapefruit Essential Oil to my wrists to help lift my mood and energize me in mid-afternoon. You can also put a drop in your palms, rub them together and inhale the aroma. Just be careful exposing skin to the sun after applying any citrus oils, as most of them are photosensitive. Read more about that here.
Be sure to use this Dilution Chart to make sure you are using safe amounts. Children, Babies, and folks with sensitive skin will need to start with more diluted amounts.
Internally – One of my favorite uses for this delicious oil is to put a couple of drops in my glass of water. Very refreshing, and benefits my metabolism at the same time! Grapefruit is also wonderful for adding flavor to fruit salads, baked goods or french toast. Read more ideas for using essential oils in baking here.
(Never ingest any essential oil if you aren’t absolutely sure of the purity. I trust only doTERRA for internal use. Hint: doTERRA oils with a nutrition facts panel on the label are safe for ingesting.)
More Ideas for Using Grapefruit:

Grapefruit Essential Oil and Certain Medications:
Some medications require the user to completely avoid grapefruit – the flesh and the juice.
doTERRA Grapefruit Essential Oil is cold-pressed from the PEEL of the fruit, which means it has different properties than the flesh or juice.
However, please check with your doctor before using Grapefruit Essential Oil (or any blend that contains it, such as Slim & Sassy Metabolic Blend) if you take one of these medications.
Better to err on the side of caution. <3
