There are many more benefits, but those are some of my favorites. This is a great oil to add to your home medicine box because it's inexpensive and has so many healing benefits. I love to use it in baths (see here for one of my favorite bath recipes) and recently I had a cold and my glands in my neck were starting to get swollen and sore. I took one teaspoon of olive oil and added 2-3 drops of grapefruit essential oil, stirring well with my finger. I then rubbed a little of that oil on my glands and neck and up behind my ears. Within an hour the pain and swelling was gone!
*As with all essential oils, please check with you health care provider before you use them if you are pregnant and nursing.
