grapefruit
Referred to as a “forbidden fruit” and one of the “Seven Wonders of Barbados,” Grapefruit was first documented in 1750 by Welshman Rev. Griffith Hughes. The name “grapefruit” is attributed to the fruits growing in clusters which resemble those of grapes. Known for its energizing and invigorating effect, Grapefruit helps reduce mental and physical fatigue. Grapefruit is also renowned for its cleansing and purifying benefits. It is beneficial for oily skin issues and helps to purify as it cleanses. Grapefruit is frequently used in skin care for its ability to promote clear, healthy skin and in weight loss products to support healthy metabolism.

GRAPEFRUIT ✧ THE OIL OF HONORING THE BODY
Grapefruit teaches true respect and appreciation for one’s physical body. It supports individuals who struggle to honor their physical body and are caught in patterns of mistreatment. These forms of abuse may include severe dieting, judging one’s body weight or type and abusing the body through negligent behavior or violence. These acts are often motivated by a hate and disgust buried within the psyche which gets directed toward the physical body. Though the individual may obsess over how they look, deep down they never feel they look good enough. There is a dissatisfaction that persists.

Grapefruit oil is often misused in overly strict dietary and weight- loss programs. The reason this oil helps curb emotional eating is that it encourages a positive relationship with one’s physical body based on love, tolerance, and acceptance. Grapefruit encourages integrity by respecting one’s physical needs. This oil assists an individual in listening to their true physical needs and impulses. It also assists one in taking responsibility for what they feel. Grapefruit teaches that no amount of food can fill a hole in the heart – only love can do that. As the individual takes ownership of their feelings and gets the help they need in addressing them, they no longer have a need to hide their feelings behind food, body abuse, strict regimens, eating disorders or other forms of addiction.

Negative Emotions: Hate for the body, addiction to food or dieting, eating disorders, anxious feelings over appearance
