Available Options


Grapefruit essential oil is obtained by cold expression of the fresh fruit peel. It can also be obtained by steam distillation but the cold pressed oil is of a much higher quality. It is one of the lesser known 'citrus' oils, but shares many of the same therapeutic properties. Unlike some of the other citruses, it is not photosensitive, which makes it a good choice if the skin will be exposed to sunlight after application.

Grapefruit is used for its 'sunny' antidepressant properties and is also a valuable diuretic, detoxifier, lymphatic and circulatory stimulant and digestive aid. It is also useful for skincare and for reducing aches and pains after exercise.

Tension Headaches

Try massaging the pulse points and back of the neck with this refreshing, uplifting and relaxing combination: 20ml Grapeseed Oil, 2 drops Neroli essential oil, 4 Grapefruit and 4 Lavender.

DIY Lymphatic Drainage

For lymphatic drainage massage we recommend the extremely gentle Vodder technique. You can also use the following aromatherapy massage oil to boost the benefits of the massage itself: 25ml Grapeseed Oil, 5ml Argan Oil, 6 drops Grapefruit, 6 Geranium and 3 Fennel. Use 3 times a week to assist the body's natural elimination of toxins, increase vitality and boost the immune system.

Inhalation to lift the spirits

Whilst we often consider using inhalation primarily to ease congestion or help fight infection – we often miss using it to lift our mood and ease emotional tension. Remember that a steam inhalation is the quickest way to breathe the essential oils into our blood stream – and that warmth is also relaxing! Try 5 drops of Grapefruit, 3 Frankincense and 2 Jasmine.
