Grapefruit is popular for its fruity, but bitter qualities and grapefruit essential oil is the essence of the fruit. You can expect grapefruit essential oil to smell fruity, citrusy, and bitter but fresh as the same time. Like other citrus, grapefruit oil is perfect in the diffuser to easy daily stress, and some even use the word “euphoric” when describing the feeling they get after a few whiffs of grapefruit essential oil. Consider mixing grapefruit with an earthy scent for a full-bodied aroma.
Grapefruit essential oil also has restorative and antioxidative properties that are beneficial to the skin and hair. You can mix grapefruit essential oil into your lotions, soaps, and shampoos to get the benefits every time you bathe.
Grapefruit is also powerful in the medicine cabinet. You can use grapefruit as an antibacterial, antiseptic, astringent, and more so you can knock out those nasty bugs and leave any room in the home with a soft grapefruit aroma.
