  1. According to the study that you cited here, Grapefruit EO was used with Cypress and “other oils”. Is there any way to see the full article to find out how much of each oil was used? The results were impressive!

  2. I pour a 15 ml bottle of Grapefruit into an bottle of Fractionated Coconut oil and shake. Use it as an all over body oil after showering. This was suggested using Citrus Blend in an edition of “do Terra Living.” No side effects as with many commercial scented items.

  3. I cannot eat grapefruit because of one of my prescriptions. Would it be safe to use grapefruit oil? I’d love to be able to, if you have knowledge about it.

  4. My husband and I both take prescriptions like Kay and grapefruit does counter-act the drug to make it useless. I think it would be better to post important information like this instead of having thousands of people emailing “productsupport”, but I will email them too for this vital information.

  5. Essential oils are squeezed from herbs, flowers, plants and vegetables and used in aromatherapy for inhaling or rubbed directly on the skin. Oils from foods, such as grapefruit, are taken internally as well. According to the National Cancer Institute, essential oils are used for emotional, spiritual and physical healing. Most oils, such as grapefruit oil, do not have side effects although they are not monitored by a federal agency. While safe for most people, you should talk to your doctor before using grapefruit essential oil, especially if you are pregnant or undergoing treatment for a medical condition.

  6. I use grapefruit oil, cypress oil, and lemongrass oil internally and as a massage oil for the pain and edema that I have in both of my legs. I can’t believe the relief I have gotten. It is amazing!

  7. I have been wondering how to use my Grapefruit oil..thanks for sharing!

  8. I need to know if this oil would works for migraine headache. It’s not just headache but migraine and had hard time to get rid of migraine after several hours to days. Please let me know. I’m trying to find that helps for migraine headache.

  9. A drop of frankincense on the thumb hold to the roof of your mouth for 10 seconds is supposed to help with migraines.
