I was pretty hesitant to try Grapefruit oil – maybe it was from all that bad dieting advice on eating fresh grapefruit every morning (GROSS!). I was expecting it to be sour and just awful tasting like fresh grapefruit from the store. If you like fresh Grapefruit, I’m sorry, but I do not know if we can be friends. Unlike the fruit, however, the oil is so fresh and light. It gives such an uplifting aroma and scent.
My favorite way to use it is to diffuse it in our home. It’s not my favorite oil to add to water, but I hear from lots of my customers that they enjoy it and it gets them drinking large amounts of water throughout the day. So definitely try it and see if you like it!

Cautions with Grapefruit
Grapefruit essential oil is considered a photosensitive oil, meaning if you use it on your skin and are exposed to the sun, it could cause redness and irritation. It’s best to avoid direct sunlight for 12 hours after using grapefruit on your skin.
