Spotlight: Organic White Grapefruit Essential Oil

Welcome to our weekly Essential Oil Spotlight! Each Wednesday, we’ll feature an essential oil to learn more about. This week, we shine the light on organic White Grapefruit Essential Oil (Citrus paradisi).

This is a sweet, sharp and refreshing scent for sure! White Grapefruit Essential Oil is a must-have for the winter doldrums. Its overall uplifting and reviving effects make White Grapefruit valuable in states of stress. Grapefruit is also said to be euphoric and slightly hypnotic.

At SunRose Aromatics, we have several diffuser blends that contain White Grapefruit, such as Clarity, Luna Magic, Midnight Portals and Rings of Saturn. However, why not try making your own blend? Try White Grapefruit with Blood Orange, Lemongrass, Spearmint, or Bergamot, or just diffuse it on its own. Play with this refreshing oil to create your own blend.

Remember! If using White Grapefruit on the skin be sure to dilute first – always dilute, please – and remember that citrus oils are phototoxic, so do not wear them in the sun. Refer to our Dilution Charts for more information about dilution.

Short story: A SunRose client loved Grapefruit, so we explained to her that it must be diluted before being applied to the skin. We asked her to please be sure she diluted this oil and to be sure not to wear it on her skin if she was going to spend time in the sun. A week late, we received a call from her and she said, “I used the grapefruit before I went tanning. Now everything tastes metallic.” “Hmm,” I replied, “What did you learn from this experience?” This was certainly a hard lesson to learn, so we ask that all our customers avoid learning it the hard way. Dilute, dilute, dilute!

For the next week, until 1/25/2017, use coupon code WHITEGRAPEFRUIT to save 10% on retail sizes of organic White Grapefruit Essential Oil. We hope you’ll give this sweet, refreshing essential oil a try!

Special Cautions for White Grapefruit Essential Oil:

Yes, the winter season calls for citrus. These bright, sunny oils can be especially beneficial to people who are affected by seasonal affective disorder (SAD). In an article about Essential Oils and Seasonal Affective Disorder, Robert Tisserand suggests that Sweet Orange Essential Oil and other citrus oils may be “particularly effective for mood enhancement.”

Our Sweet Orange oil has a zesty and refreshing citrus scent that spreads a little sunshine on gloomy thoughts or when you just feel blah.  This oil is reviving when feeling bored when when you have a lack of energy, which can happen for some people during the cold dead of winter. Sweet Orange is also great for banishing tension and stress. Its relaxing nature could be beneficial to insomnia brought on by anxiety.

At SunRose Aromatics, we have several diffuser blends that contain Sweet Orange, such as Ambiance, Happiness, and Joyful Joyful. However, why not try making your own blend? Try Sweet Orange with Lemon, Lavender, Geranium, or Bergamot, or just diffuse it on its own. Play with this happy oil to create your own fun and joyous blend.
