If you haven’t heard yet I love essential oils. I have heard over and over again by my oily friends that Grapefruit Oil helps with…..
But I wanted to share with you why I love them.
Here is my disclosure! I am not a doctor nor do I want to be. I am just a human who has had some sickness issues and will do whatever I can to be a healthy wife, mom, and be able to function to the best of my ability. I share my sickness story with you here (The long Version-Sick part 1-5) and here. (The -kinda-Short Version of Elizabeth Norton) I only use young living oils. (Because of these reasons) I still see my doctor/doctors/nurses weekly. I am on a journey to health. Neuro doctor told me to try oils. This is my journey. I will forever be learning.
Coffee addiction- I have heard over and over again that the grapefruit aroma is said to help curve drug and food cravings and uplift the system. On my journey to stop drinking coffee I start my day off diffusing grapefruit oil. It is only one of the tools I have been using to put down the coffee cup!
Digestion- My stomach is paralyzed. I use grapefruit essential oil (I only use Young Living oils and here is why) to stimulate my digestive system by adding a drop to water in a glass mason jar.
Energy- My cortisol levels are very low and I increase my energy levels by bringing grape fruit where ever I go and applying a drop over my chest. I haven’t found much to help my cortisol levels but this seems to give me a burst to get me through the next conference call or the next deadline.
Time Zone Changes- I love to travel. Sometimes I travel for work. I use grapefruit oil to help my body adjust to the time zones when heading west. I recently used it to stay awake late and chat with family members while visiting California. I can mix it with a spray bottle full of water or rub it on my chest and behind my ears. If I have a glass water bottle with me I will drink 6oz with 2 drops.
Deodorize a room- I have 2 dogs, 1 cat, and a baby in diapers. I am no longer a fan of candles because of recent studies of them being toxic. I no longer use aerosol spray freshened because of environmental guilt. Grapefruit oil is a safe way to help keep smells down and a room smelling fresh.
