Essential Oil and Emotions
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 because 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.
