9 Ways to Use Grapefruit Essential Oil

Grapefruit essential oil is well known for its weight loss benefit on the body. It helps lessen inflammation along with reducing sugar cravings.
However, weight loss is not the only benefit from using grapefruit essential oil.

I've listed the top ten ways to use grapefruit essential oil below:

1. Support Weight Loss  

Add a few drops of grapefruit oil in your water to assist with curbing cravings. 

2. Diuretic/Lymphatic Stimulant

Apply oil topically to the skin in small amounts to boost the lymphatic system and help the digestive tract.


3. Antibacterial  

Grapefruit oil has antimicrobial traits to fight illness. You can make your own home cleaner with grapefruit oil in it to prevent sickness from spreading in the home.

4. Anti-fungal  

This oil can fight candida, urinary tract infections, and lung/nasal infections. Diffuse the oil in your home to fight lung and/or nasal infections.

5. Beat a hangover  

Grapefruit oil is great for fighting a hangover. Put a few drops of grapefruit oil in your water the next morning and you'll start to feel great in no time.

6. Air Freshener  

If your house has a stale smell, diffuse grapefruit oil with lemon or lime oil to freshen the air. You can also use a small amount of this oil on kitchen surfaces and appliances to kill odors naturally.

7. Supports Circulation

When this oil is ingested and/or topically put on the skin, it relieves inflammation and helps with blood circulation. It helps soothe sore muscles so you can put a few drops into a hot bath and soak your muscles in the tub for extra relief.


Grapefruit oil is a natural energizer. When internally taking this oil, it will help release brain fog, lift your mood and act as a mild anti-depressant.

9. Clears Skin  

This oil will fight acne because of its ability to kill infections. It also helps skin look younger and fuller. Apply small amounts topically to your skin with a fractionated coconut oil or all-natural fragrance-free lotion.
