Grapefruit Oil

.51 fl oz $12

Grapefruit Oil is a cancer fighting essential oil as well as excellent for weight loss and fat loss. Grapefruit essential oil (Citrus x paradisi), a lesser used but very potent and therapeutic oil, is created by cold-pressing the rind of the fruit to extract the oil. There's a reason grapefruit was a long-time weight loss fad. The oils in this fruit are incredibly beneficial to the metabolism. The aroma is clean, fresh, a little bitter, and of course, citrus. 

These properties together have a huge appeal to anyone working to lose weight. This oil has been reported to increased your energy levels with its uplifting scent, giving you more energy and stamina, and helping you increase your activity levels. It cleanses the system from the inside-out, perfect for anyone with a sluggish digestive system or a slow metabolism. And it increases your overall system, helping to return your body to its optimal health.

In addition to the physical support grapefruit offers, the emotional and spiritual support of this oil coincide beautifully. The aromatic effects include support of one's own sense of self-love and approval, especially in regards to loving and honoring our bodies. It can help a person hold their body in gratitude for all it does, treat it with honor and care, and therefore encourage healthy habits out of a sense of love, instead of self-hatred.
