Known for its energizing and invigorating aroma, Grapefruit helps uplift mood. Grapefruit is also renowned for its cleansing and purifying properties and is frequently used in skin care for its ability to promote the appearance of clear, healthy-looking skin. Grapefruit can also support a healthy metabolism.

See below for Grapefruit's many uses.  A drop or two in your sparkling water is enough to convince you to have this oil handy at all times.  Remember to use glass or stainless steel bottles because citrus oils can leech petrochemicals from plastic water bottles.  When applying topically to address skin blemishes, please use only at night time as citrus oils are photosensitive (avoid sun exposure).
