Grapefruit Essential OilPublished on 01/04/2016
Considered by the Chinese as one of 3 blessed fruits (along with peaches and lemons), Citrus Paradisi was also highly regarded by the Romans and Greeks. Symbol of fertility and prosperity, grapefruit is a hybrid fruit of the Rutaceae family with multiple benefits.
For the mind, it relieves tension, anxiety and stress; increases confidence, concentration and self-esteem; and thus it is often said to be an antidepressant. It is disinfectant and diuretic, it stimulates and detoxifies. It has the extraordinary power of lowering blood pressure.
And here’s great news and a foremost feature: Grapefruit essential oil activates the lymphatic system. The lymphatic system accompanies our circulatory system throughout the body and as Decléor’s brand ambassador Solange Dessimoulie, says, “the cleaner it is, the better your health.” By detoxifying the lymphatic system, your body can eliminate all of the excess, unwanted and toxic substances and will simply function better. The best kept secret is its slimming virtues as it has both lipolytic and firming capacities. It helps to fight retention of fluids like water, toxins and cellulite.
For skin, Grapefruit essential oil is perfect for treating oily and acne prone skin types and also fights the enzyme responsible for the loss of elasticity. Like when you drink a glass of grapefruit juice full of vitamin C, this hybrid citrus fruit is rich in antioxidants, fighting free radicals, one of the biggest concerns in anti-aging care these days.
