Day 05: Grapefruit Essential Oil

May 05, 2018 1 Comment

Introducing one of my all-time favourite dōTERRA essential oils, Grapefruit! Grapefruit Essential Oil was one of my first purchases. I felt like I just had to have this oil in my life. Ever since I have been diffusing Grapefruit, adding it to my water to jazz up my drink and recently I have added Grapefruit to my skin care regime.   

Here are your Grapefruit essentials: 

Sourced from: USA

Plant part: rind (peel)

Extraction method: cold pressed


Grapefruit is a natural:

  • Antioxidant
  • Antiseptic
  • Astringent
  • Diuretic
  • Purifier

Making the most of your Grapefruit Essential Oil:
  • Aromatically Diffusing grapefruit can support you to feel centred within yourself, increase motivation and freshen the air
  • Topically For oily skin or acne you can apply to breakout areas
  • Internally Take in a capsule to ease jet lag symptoms. Drop a few drops in your water to support a healthy metabolism or reduce sugar cravings.




Grapefruit is the oil of honouring the body.


Aromatic Dressing

In the spirit of Grapefruit, I have an invitation for you to bring a little more self loving into your life in the form of an ‘aromatic dressing’.

An aromatic dressing is beautiful, nourishing, honouring process.

Here are the instructions for creating your own aromatic dressing:

1. Create a beautiful environment – After a shower or bath set the scene in your bathroom or bedroom. Have the lights on or soft lighting (think candles or fairy lights), play some peaceful, moving music or experience silence.

2. Create a nourishing blend of oils – In a beautiful bowl mix approx. 10mls of carrier oil (such as fractionated coconut oil) and 5 drops of your essential oils of choice. Oils like Grapefruit are perfect for an aromatic dressing as Grapefruit is the oil of 'honouring the body'. You could also add oils like Lavender, Frankincense, Rose, Geranium or Patchouli.  

3. Stand in front of a mirror and slowly, lovingly massage the oil onto your skin, starting at your toes and make your way up to the top of your head. You can apply using circular motions and spend more time in areas that feel that are needing a little more of your attention.

4. As you are massaging the oil into your body speak to yourself, speaking messages of love and acceptance.

Here are some examples of the loving things you can say to yourself:

Thank you feet for grounding me.
Thank you legs for moving me through life, what a wonderful journey we are on together. 
I love the shape of my hips and the softness of my skin.
I feel at home in my body.
Body, I am so thankful for the way you show up for me each and every day.
When I look at you (name) I see (list positive emotions)
You are my best friend and I love you.

End your aromatic dressing by cupping your hands to your nose and deeply inhaling, ending with a final affirmation. 

This is a powerful, loving experience, that combines positive affirmations and aromatic anchors. Take as long as you like, or use what time you have. This is just for you so spend a couple of minutes at the beginning or end of your day with yourself and your oils.
