Grapefruit

Grapefruit (Citrus Paradisi) essential oil comes from an ancient hybrid, probably between the sweet orange and the pomelo. It has long been used only as an ornamental plant. It is the only citrus fruit supposedly not from Southeast Asia but from Central America. Its fruit only became popular in the 19th century.

Effetti psicologici

Gives great self-confidence by bringing emotional warmth to depressed and exhausted people. The essence is suitable for those who do not like winter and who suffer from a lack of sunshine and affection. It helps to open up to others. In aromatherapy it is used to act on the hypothalamus which regulates, among many other functions, also hunger.

Suggested uses:

  • Room diffuser: 3/4 drops in 100 ml of water. We suggest accompanying it with other essential oils.
  • Bath: 8/10 drops of essential oil emulsified in coarse salt, milk, cream ,or honey in hot water (this prevents the oil from evaporating due to the heat).
  • Massage: a few drops of essential oil in a tablespoon of carrier oil or neutral cream.
  • Food use: we recommend 1/2 drops per 100 g of food as an aroma to be added at the end of cooking (we suggest always starting with the lowest recommended dose and increasing the drops in the future).

Warnings: Non-toxic essential oil, unlike almost all other citrus fruits there are no recorded cases of phototoxicity. If in doubt consult a doctor/pharmacist
