Grapefruit oil is such a great one to have around!

Not only can this amazing essential oil help with weight management, but it can also be a huge friend to your skin.

I simply add a few drops to my daily lotion routine. Feels super refreshing, you guys! My skin stays hydrated longer and the smell is seriously ah-mazing!

I also enjoy putting a drop of grapefruit oil in my drinking water from time to time, it gives me a little extra energy boost and tastes pretty good too!

The grapefruit oil benefits don’t stop there…

Check out why it’s one of my absolute favorite oils to diffuse!

Grapefruit essential oil is a must-have oil for diffusing on a beautiful spring day. Not only does it smells citrusy and refreshing, but it also helps combat that yucky sluggish feeling that rises up from time to time.

I also lean on this oil when I feel a headache coming on. While it’s not a fix-all, I like to rub a little on my temples for a simple pick-me-up.
