Tell Me More About Grapefruit Essential Oil…
Grapefruit is a popular semi-sweet, yet tangy, citrus treat with a rich history. The fruit originated from Barbados and was discovered as an accidental hybrid between a sweet orange and a pomelo. Originally referred to as the “forbidden fruit,” it was first documented in 1750 by Rev. Griffith Hughes, a Welshman who referred to the fruit as one of the “Seven Wonders of Barbados.”
Grapefruit essential oil is extracted from the tangy fruit by cold expression of the peel. This process yields a pale yellow, or golden yellow, colored oil that exudes a pleasant and energizing aroma characteristic of the citrus fruit.
Essential oils work by triggering certain areas of the brain, which in turn will tell our body to feel sleepy, calm, full or even energized. Smells have a very strong impact on our body, so we can use that to stimulate our appetite or to quiet it down. And since some essential oils can be taken internally, they offer numerous benefits like curbing cravings and losing weight.
Grapefruit essential oil boasts many incredible benefits and has been used for centuries to beat inflammation, weight gain, sugar cravings and even hangover symptoms. Below is a short list of how you can incorporate grapefruit essential oil into your wellness routine to curb your sugar cravings!
