For many people, grapefruit is the perfect morning, “wake up call. It’s a rich source of Vitamin C, which has antioxidant properties and helps boost the immune system. But you can enjoy the healthy benefits of grapefruit throughout the day in other ways besides having a glass of juice or a bowl of grapefruit sections in the morning. Grapefruit essential oil is another way to boost your physical and mental well-being.
In addition to vitamin C, Grapefruit essential oil also is a source of limonene, a chemical found in the peel of citrus fruits and other plants used to make medicine. Limonene has been shown to have anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, anti-stress, and possibly disease-preventing properties. Grapefruit essential oil also has strong antibacterial and antimicrobial properties.
But it’s not only for its health benefits that we value grapefruit essential oil. It is known in aromatherapy for its uplifting and stimulating fragrance, so that it is commonly used for rejuvenation. Grapefruit essential oil is used to reduce stress, stimulate circulation, increase energy, and enhance mood. The effect comes from its aroma and its stimulating effects on certain hormones that uplift the mind.
Grapefruit essential oil also is thought to improve cognition. Grapefruit essential oil has been shown to increase sympathetic or unconscious action versus a placebo. A controlled increase in brain activity can help us process information at a more effective rate, resulting in improved cognitive performance.
