Benefits of Grapefruit Essential Oil

Grapefruit is by far my favourite essential oil. I love the citrus, strong but yet light aroma it contributes to any environment. I use it in my hair masks, face scrubs, and as a roll on essential oil perfume. The smell gives off a great all around happy feeling that just reminds me of a great summer day at the beach. Grapefruit oil smells great but those are not the only benefits of this great scent!
