If you’ve been reading awhile, you know that my family has started using essential oils for a multitude of things, from relaxation to concentration. Thankfully, Phytopia offered their Slimway product free of charge in exchange for my honest review, and I’m glad I tried it! See, Slimway has grapefruit oil, which has tons of benefits. Also, this essential oil, which is 100% Pure & Natural Therapeutic Grade for Massage, which means that this oil can be spread throughout the body safely as a natural way to help curb appetite in order to lose weight. Admittedly, my weight has gotten a bit out of control, and I needed an extra push to prevent myself from overeating and get a foothold on this whole weight loss thing, so I tried this oil. Here’s what I know about grapefruit oil:
The 3 Health Benefits of Grapefruit Essential Oil
- A Healthy Metabolism: Grapefruit essential oil has been known to help kickstart the metabolism, as rubbing the oil into your skin is reported to help eliminate the fat and excess water from your body.
- Weight Loss: This oil may also help curb your appetite and prevent overeating, which are both key for trying to lose weight.
- Cleansing and Toning Skin: Grapefruit essential oil works as a tonic, which is great for the skin, the hair, and the body as a whole. This means it may also help prevent acne.
Using this oil has been helpful for me, though inconsistently. It does wear off as the day goes on, so reapplication is important if you want to reap the benefits throughout the day. For me, hunger strikes in the evenings, so I need it more than than ever. The great thing about this oil is that is smells nice and is easy to use. Phytopia blends the oil with olive oil, which is a base oil that you use with an essential oil. Since the base oil is already included, you can use it at any time without worrying about how many drops of essential oil to base oil you need to get the job done. The bottle contains 50 ml of grapefruit essential oil blend, which means there is plenty there to use and it is a good value for your money.
