 I love grapefruit because it blends so well with so many oils. It will add an uplifting note of sunshine to any blend. It has astringent and cooling properties. Diffusing will help deodorize and add a positive energy to any room. It is a possible appetite stimulant and can also be helpful in headache or nausea blends. It can also help reduce fluids when applied to swollen areas of the skin. See safety notes below. Diffuse away if your day is feeling gray!!!

Organic and top quality, I use this one a lot with a carrier oil on my skin and a few drops to diffuse or in my ice water. I love this product. I will definitely order from Pompeii Organics again and again.
