Grapefruit Essential Oil
(Citrus paradisi) is valued for its ability to help with fluid retention and cellulite. It is a diuretic detoxifier and lymph stimulant, great when used in massage oil with geranium for these conditions. It has been used in post-exercise massage oils because of its ability to help break lactic acid from the muscles, thereby helping to relieve muscle pain and stiffness. Because of its ability to control bodily secretions, grapefruit essential oil is great to use on oily and acne skin. Has a great tonic effect. This oil seems to be antidepressant too because of its “happy” scent, by providing an uplifting feeling.
