Grapefruit Essential Oil is one of my favourite oils. I really love the scent, it’s fresh and brings back memories of my childhood when I used to have breakfast with my Nanna, she always had a grapefruit and toast. Grapefruit Essential Oil can provide an uplifting environment due to it’s invigorating and energising aroma, while acting as a purifying agent when added to a skin care routine. This was actually the first essential oil I owned and from there I haven’t looked back.
I am slowly building an A-Z Essential Oil Usage Guide, listing the extensive and therapeutic properties of each of the Essential Oils I have been using along with remedies and benefits for health, beauty and around the home.
