Sold on grapefruit essential oil!
I just came back from a 10 day vacation, during which I thought I had eaten fairly well and had even worked in some T-Tapp. In addition, I did the skin brushing almost every day and took 6 alfalfa daily. However, when I stepped on the scale after getting home (I know, I know, but I still haven't gotten strong enough to throw the darn thing out), I was disheartened to see a 6 pound weight gain. I checked my measurements and they had stayed the same so I didn't get too worried, just committed to begin my T-Tapping routine again.
At the same time, I received my order of grapefruit essential oil so I immediately started adding a couple drops to each glass of water I drank during the day. Imagine my surprise and elation when I stepped on the scale 36 hours later to find the 6 pounds gone! It was evidently all water weight and the grapefruit essential oil had helped cleanse my system very quickly.
I am noticing now that my rings are staying loose all day long, a sure indicator for me that I am not retaining water like I always do and that the grapefruit is doing its job of removing toxins from my body. I am absolutely sold on this product!
hmm...so do this mean you are using Grapefruit essential oil to keep from retaining water? I will check that out.
Thanks for the post. I had planned to order some with my next order. Now I'll be sure to get some to try.
Started T-Tapp in July 2010 after searching for a good strengthening/stretching/flexibility workout. I think I found it!
"Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.
In all thy ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct thy paths."
I love the gf oil, it tastes so good. And I find the oil and good old fashioned grapefruit are both good for water retention.
oooo never knew about the water weight with it but I LOVE that stuff! it is soooo good!
Valorie--I'm with Peggy. I've been thinking about purchasing the grapefruit essential oil. Now I definitely will. Thanks for the testimonial!
Wow Varorie...that's quite an endorsement!! I have some at home and will start trying it!
Okay this is different that Grapefruit seed extract because that stuff does NOT taste good! Blessings, Shawna
For those who posted that they like the taste, I agree! It's best to put the drops in your glass and then add water...since it is an oil it will float on the top and can be a bit strong if it's not mixed well with the liquid. I have been adding it to my iced tea and it is great that way too. I am also adding it to the body lotion that I use on my cellulite areas.
I would love to hear if anyone experiences similar results as they start using it!
So is the grapefruit essential oil and the grapefruit seed extract the same? Blessings, Shawna
