Hello, dear readers. Today I want to talk about how to apply grapefruit oil to the face. I like essential oils very much. Just want to say that it is better not to use cheap oils. All the same, the quality of these oils leaves much to be desired. This year I bought lavender oil "Kingdom of fragrances", very disappointed in it. If you take grapefruit oil, then we can get quality oil from the companies "Glorion" or "Primavera life".Qualitative essential oils are revealed by three notes. In the grapefruit oil, the upper is fruit, the middle is bitter, and the lower one is woody.
Oil is light yellow. Aroma is light, fresh, fruity. This oil improves mood, refreshes, balances. Grapefruit oil is suitable for use for oily skin, for oily hair, in the fight against cellulite. But, in pure form, grapefruit oil should not be used in any case! All essential oils are used only in a mixture with base oils. In pure form, only essential oil of tea tree and lavender can be applied pointwise. About the essential oil of lavender and how to use it, you can read in the article "Lavender oil application".
I want to cancel the important rule in aromatherapy. If you do not like the smell of essential oil, then oil will not work with you. Sniff the oil by lifting the bottle to the chin level.
