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!
