As the season heats up, it’s time to spotlight one of my favorite dōTERRA citrus oils. This time of year is generally a time to get organized, in shape, and ready for summer vacations.  I use doTERRA Grapefruit oil as part of a spring detox routine. Grapefruit essential oil adds a delicious flavor to any beverage for a sweet twist as it helps to cleanse the body of any unwanted toxins in support of a healthy metabolism.

  1. Add a few drops grapefruit oil to your water throughout the day to support a healthy metabolism and have a positive effect on your digestive system
  2. Are you trying to shed some extra weight or stick to a diet? Use Grapefruit essential oil to help you meet your goals. Add a few drops of Grapefruit oil into a diffuser to help increase motivation.
  3. Apply topically as grapefruit can be a great diuretic and lymphatic stimulant (one of my favorite oils to use for dry brushing)
  4. Add 1-2 drops to a smoothie for a refreshing twist
  5. Add several drops to your wrist and chest when a craving strikes
  6. Add 1-2 drops grapefruit oil to your water because of its antibacterial abilities,  it is able to reduce yeast/candida which causes cravings for many of us with gut imbalances
  7. Add 15 drops grapefruit oil or Slim-n-Sassy to a nasal inhaler because grapefruit oil is known to lower cravings when inhaled directly
  8. Combine Grapefruit and Elevation for a tangy combination, it uplifts your mood and provides an energizing aroma. It’s a great motivation boost to help set your mindset and accomplish your spring-cleaning (of your home and body) this season.
  9. Adding a few drops to your diffuser necklace is a great place to receive continual support throughout the day and stay motivated
