cold pressed citrus oils, it is wonderful to add to your homemade lotions, creams and massage oils!
Allow Grapefruit Essential Oil to soothe and refresh skin by placing in the bath or creating a sugar or salt scrub. It is also mentally uplifting so don't forget to diffuse it when soaking in the tub!

Oh yes, especially those that just linger in your nose forever! You know what I mean...(rotting food, foreclosed homes, landfill drive-bys!) Just inhale right from the bottle and your noxious odor memories are gone!
Or just add a drop or two to water sprayer, shake and spray!
