5 Ways to Use Grapefruit Essential Oil

This superior detoxifying agent serves to flush out the body’s toxins, disinfect and cleanse the skin, and lift spirits. The scent brightens emotion and relieves anxiety, while the high limonene content is a powerful supporter of skin issues.

Use grapefruit whenever you’d like to lighten your mood, strengthen digestive or cardiovascular function, or promote energy. The following five protocols will get you jumpstarted on applications for this uplifting oil. Dilute in a 1:1 ratio with a carrier oil, unless directed otherwise.


Grapefruit helps suppress addictive urges and depressive moods. Dilute accordingly and apply over the solar plexus, the stomach, the heart, or the back of the neck. To take internally, place a single drop on the tip of your tongue or in a glass of drinking water. Alternatively, you can use aromatically by inhaling directly, diffusing throughout the room, or using the cup-and-inhale method, simply place a drop in your palms and rub them together then, cupping your hands over your nose, and breathe deeply and calmly in and out. Do this for several minutes or until the craving has passed.

Cardiovascular Support

Strengthen cardiovascular health and protect against heart issues through a topical grapefruit application. Dilute accordingly and apply over the heart in a circular motion and into the reflex points of the feet.

Digestive Aid

This oil is a fantastic supporter of digestive health. To combat digestive issues, place a drop of oil in a glass of drinking water and take internally or apply a topical application to the abdomen, massaging in a clockwise motion. Also, massage into the reflex points of the feet. For general digestive support, diffuse throughout the home.


For those who feel low energy or chronic fatigue, run a hot bath and disperse three drops of grapefruit in the bathwater. Soak for twenty minutes, inhaling deeply. You can also diffuse the oil or apply topically, diluted, in a full body massage to boost circulation and promote energy and cognitive function.


No need for that greasy plate of meat and hash browns; a topical grapefruit application is a fantastic hangover fix. Dilute accordingly and massage into the chest, abdomen, and reflex points. You can also take internally, a drop in a glass of drinking water, or inhale directly.
