Grapefruit is a flavorful and refreshing oil that aids the immune system, lymphatic system, and is very powerful as an antidepressant. It will also freshen breath, heal inflamed gums. Because it is a strong disinfectant, it is very effective as a cleaning spray or as fruit and vegetable wash. Some have used Grapefruit for a scalp treatment others have had success using it in a weight loss program. It is good treating the symptoms of colds and flu. Finally, Grapefruit is used for skin treatment, especially for treating aging or loose skin.
Blend Ingredients: Blue Tansy, Frankincense, Rosewood, Spruce
This Blend Addresses: Anxiety, Attention Deficit, Hyperactivity, Nervousness
Balance blend contains oils that are geared toward the central nervous system and other body systems.
If there are times when you feel confused, doubtful, unsettled, or in need of a sense of well-being, a balancing blend may be an excellent option. Can work for children who deal with ADD, ADHD, autism or bi-polar conditions, use a balancing blend to calm and balance moods. For those who suffer mood swings, anxiety, temper problems or doldrums, a balancing blend may help calm and balance their emotions. Use during times of anxiety for children, consider a massage application to their feet, neck, shoulders or back.
I use both oils every day. The Balance blend has been instrumental in helping my moods. I apply it on my wrists, on the back of my neck and on the bottoms of my feet every morning and night.
I drink the grapefruit oil everyday in water which can help with food cravings. (Slim & Sassy is also excellent at that and I drink it every morning.) The scent is uplifting, too.
Put a couple of dropz in the bottom of a *glass* glass, add a lemon wedge and some mint or basil and fill with filtered water. Yum. (Using grapefruit essential oil is not the same as drinking grapefruit juice, so there is no reason to fear a contraindication with medication like you do with grapefruit juice.*)
