Aromatherapy for Your Mood and Skin Health
How Does an Essential Oil Clear Your Skin and Improve Your Mood?
Essential oils are good for many different purposes. Sometimes it seems like they are too good to be true, but trust me, they are very effective! For instance, grapefruit essential oil is great for working with adolescent melancholia and acne. It is cold-pressed from the rind of the grapefruit. You can apply it topically to troubled areas of the skin as a cleanser. In this way, you can take it in through the skin as well as the lungs (by breathing it in). It disinfects and detoxifies the skin. In addition, it helps you with stress, which can lead to your physically breaking out with acne.
Consider that many dermatologists prescribe antibiotics for acne and other conditions of the skin. While that could be okay for temporary use, what are the ramifications to the immune system is they are used chronically for bad skin? Also, many women and adolescent girls can develop Candida albicans, or yeast infections, if they're not careful with antibiotics. Grapefruit oil does not pose these same concerns.
Emotional Effects of Grapefruit Oil
Would you believe that it also emotionally uplifts and can have an antidepressant effect? If you or your adolescent child has difficulty with moodiness, it is a good match for you. It has a bright, uplifting aroma that can help you feel refreshed and upbeat.
Other Uses for Aromatherapy with Grapefruit Oil
It is often used for cellulite on the skin as well. Remember the grapefruit diets in the 80s and 90s? This may be where they got the idea. Speaking of skin applications, If you want a way to diminish varicose veins, it is also a good option!
Additionally, it can have a cleansing effect on the lymphatic system and kidneys. Much like exercise, it is invigorating. Like many of the oils we have profiled, this oil is versatile, healing, and non-toxic to the entire system.
