Where to find grapefruit seed extract????

I found some grapefruit seed extract at Whole Foods but I bet Sprouts has some. Anyone know? Also, you can also use a mixture of Orange Oil and Lemon oil, 10 drops each. I can get these for you if you would like. Orange oil is $12.50 per bottle and lemon oil is $15.00. They each contain about 300 drops so they will last you a while. They are essential oils from a great company called Forever Young. You can use these oils in some water as an atibacterial spray with no harmful effects to anything. Great for cleaning in the kitchen and on toys. I am really starting to learn a lot about the healing power of essential oils and hope to blog much more about them in the future. I am in the learning process right now. I know that the quality of the oil is very important and this company only sells the pure ingredients.Email me if you would like some. Some of the other healing properties of Lemon oil are:

Anti- viral to help on colds, coughs and flu
helps rid body of phlegm
helps to decongest toxic liver
stomach acidicy


Orange Oil healing properties:

Great for skin health, helping with collagen production and cell regeneration
help with coughs, colds, chills, bronchitis
healing effect on sore muscles, strains and sprains
supports the body in overcoming colds, flu.
helps detox body after a heavy meal.
helps eliminate toxins
premenstrual tension and stress
calming

*****Chinese medicine have used these for centuries, no new ideas here, just us Americans are slow to catch on if it isn't in a prescription bottle.

I LOVE THIS!!!! THANK YOU!!! Question for you: does the oil go rancid quickly?

Shari Goodman said...

No, the lemon oil and Orange oil last a very long time. The bottle is a little vial that is easy to store. 300 drops goes a long way, though. I don't know about the grapefruit seed extract.

Ok - I am a new reader of your blog and I love it! This is probably a very silly question but, how do you use the oil? Do you just put the drops on a spoon and swallow?

Shari Goodman said...

There are several ways to take the oil. It also depends on the types of oil you are taking. Some of the oils will burn your throat so you need to put them in capsules that can be bought for cheap at the health stores. Lemon and orange oil are fine. You can put them in juice or smoothies or water. They taste good. You can just put a few drops in your mouth or Put a drop on the back of your hand and lick it off. You can also use oil on the reflexology points on your feet. I will be getting a list of my favorite oils and what they do in a week or so for any interested. The ones I have tried so far have killed a sore throat right away and have taken away my sons eczema. Ino comming......

Hey, I believe I bought mine at whole foods, but I'm sure sprouts and other health food stores carry it. I'm all about the oils can't wait to talk to you more about them. Best news EVER!!! JoJo is eating more. The day after chelation he came up to Todd and wanted his taco. He has been eating so much now and so many differnt things. I couldn't stop crying I was so happy. Of course he wouldn't eat my muffins though!! YEAH!!

Yes, Sprouts definitely carries Grapefruit seed extract, that's where I buy mine. We just finally had to buy a new bottle after about a year, lol. A little goes a long way! I LOVE essential oils too, they are so helpful.

Shari -- I worked for a number of years at "For Every Body". They developed a body care line that did not contain mineral oil of the yucky stuff that hurts our skin. We also sold a lot of essential oils in the store. I learned to LOVE them and use them a lot around the house. Probably my favorite is Lavender Essential oil. One of the best uses is for burns. If you put the pure oil on a burn it will heal much more quickly. It is also wonderful for its relaxing properties. CAUTION: IF YOU GET SEASONAL ALLERGIES: All essential oils should be used sparingly at first to see if you have a reaction to it (because remember, they are made from things that grow and bloom, and sometimes make you sneeze or get rashes!). Love, Aunt Betsy

Thanks Aunt Betsy! Nice to hear from you . Yes, I found out about allergies the hard way. One of the oil mixtures I was using had pine in it which I am very allergic too. I had to stop that one. I agree, take it slow so you can figure out what works for you.
