Traditional & Historical Information
The grapefruit originated in the eighteenth century following the cross pollination of the orange and pomelo. The fresh, energising qualities of Grapefruit oil have since been used in natural medicine and aromatherapy to help strengthen the mind, balance emotions and fears, and to help alleviate exhaustion. With its mildly antiseptic and purifying properties grapefruit has been found to be an effective cleansing agent for the skin and beneficial in aiding the natural flush of waste and accumulated lymphatic fluid.
Grapefruit is photosensitive and can be irritating to the skin in high doses. Heat makes grapefruit oil more reactive with the skin so add to milk prior to dispersing in the bath, avoid bath application for sensitive skin. If ingested, drink milk. Avoid eyes, flush with water. Keep out of reach of children.
