          Perhaps its most common use in aromatherapy is cell waste elimination. It stimulants the lymphatic system to reduce waste and is and is commonly used in blends to reduce cellulite. Grapefruit is also said to improve liver function, energizing to help burn calories and a diuretic to reduce water retention.
          In soap making Grapefruit is used mainly for its fresh scent and to a lesser extent, as a disinfectant and mild insect repellent. It is fast releasing, inexpensive and photoxicity is not an issue in products that are rinsed away.

Caution: Grapefruit oil contains bergaptene which is phototoxic. A typical reaction is an increased risk of sunburn. It is recommended to cover or avoid sunlight on areas of skin treated with Grapefruit for 12 to 24 hours. Citrus oils have short shelf lives and can cause skin sensitivity if old or oxidized.
