Congratulations to those of you on the Fresh Start Detox Project!
As part of the detox box you received essential oils~ grapefruit and rosemary. Essential oils are the regenerating, oxygenating, and immune defense properties of plants . Essential oils have been used throughout history in many cultures for their medicinal and therapeutic benefits. Grapefruit is cold pressed from the rind, and rosemary is steam distilled from flowering plants.
Used to treat depression, fatigue and liver disorders, grapefruit essential oil may also have a cleansing effect on the kidneys, pulling heavy toxins from the body.
Rosemary, once regarded as sacred by many civilizations, is known for its pain-relieving properties and may stimulate the immune system. I invite you to experiment with the oils: massage rosemary into your scalp, or dilute 1 drop of either oil in 1 teaspoon honey.
These oils were chosen for their specific properties and how the oils can affect the body. During a detox, your skin is the largest organ, so it is extremely important to make sure to nourish the largest organ with natural products.
