Citrus x paradisi
This oil has stimulating effects on both, the body and the mind. It stimulates the brain by making it active and gives a new direction to thoughts. It also stimulates endocrine glands and promotes proper secretion of hormones and enzymes, thereby enhancing the metabolism. It stimulates the nervous system and makes you more active and alert. The digestive system also benefits from this essential oil as it stimulates the secretion of gastric juices and bile in the stomach, as well as the movement of ingested food through the intestines. Furthermore, it stimulates the lymphatic, circulatory, and excretory system. of all the citrus oils, this one I find to be the best used for detoxing and lymph drainage.
As always, with all citrus oils, be mindful of their skin sensitizing action -- always use in a carrier, and never with direct sun.
