We have been out of stock of this amazing energizer for at least three years, perhaps longer. All of my sources said “no one is producing the organic oil” and for a long time this seemed true. We certainly couldn’t locate any. I finally found a bit, sent it for testing, and we are so happy to have it back.
I never particularly liked Grapefruit Essential Oil until I discovered Pink Grapefruit. It fairly sparkles, it’s so bright and crisp, both energizing and uplifting. Grapefruit is recommended by some authorities for treating eating disorders, both anorexia and overeating, when they stem from lack of self esteem. It seems to create a feeling of internal buoyancy.
Of all the citrus oils, Pink Grapefruit is by far the most energizing. I find it impossible to sit still when we are diffusing or pouring Pink Grapefruit. It makes us all want to get up and move!
Physically, Pink Grapefruit Essential Oil is also helpful in treating oily skin and hair.
Pink Grapefruit, applied topically, is recommended as part of anti-cellulite blends because of its toning and astringent effects. I am a bit skeptical about this effect, when used topically, but many authorities state it. It is also said to stimulate the lymphatic system, and thus help the body remove toxins.
Recent research has also shown that inhaling Grapefruit Essential Oil may help reduce the craving for sweets. Couple this with its energizing effect, and it’s clear to see Pink Grapefruit essential oil is truly the dieter’s friend.
Safety: Robert Tisserand advises: phototoxicity (low risk), avoid use before exposing to sunlight or tanning bed, maximum dermal use 4%.
SHELF LIFE: Approximately 1 to 2 years after you open the bottle. Storing in the dark, refrigerated, and decanting half full bottles into smaller, full bottles will extend shelf life.
