2. Acts as an antidepressant

The best way to use grapefruit oil to treat depression is through aromatherapy. The grapefruit oil has a clean and refreshing aroma that naturally lifts your mood when you breathe in this citrus oil. Some people use it when they travel to keep from getting jet lag. You can either dilute it and dab a little on your wrists or put it into a spray bottle and refresh the room you are sitting in.

 

3. Diuretic

It is important to make sure that you are able to urinate on a regular basis. If you find that you are taking in more liquids than you are eliminating, you should consider using grapefruit oil as a diuretic to relieve the retention of fluids and excess bloating. Talk with a naturopath to find out how much you should use and the length of time needed to get your kidney functioning again.
