I had some grapefruits for breakfast today and ate a couple of the seeds too, along with a couple of avocados. I really love the smell. I used to really dislike my whole life, them since they were sour, but the more I eat them, it seems like they are sweet now. I've eaten more grapefruits this week than entire multiple years prior.
Years ago, I saw a product that was a liquid called GSE, grapefruit seed extract, that was antibacterial, antiviral, and antifungal.
I spent a few minutes reading and found out another de-wormer that I've never heard mentioned here before. Turns out the esential oil of the peel of the grapefruit can kill parasites in animal feed.
A lab study published in the Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine found that when grapefruit-seed extract was tested against 67 distinct biotypes that were both gram-positive and gram-negative organisms, it showed antibacterial properties against all of them.
Years ago, a friend who's dad was a produce manager said to make oranges easier to peel, roll them for a minute or so with your hand with some pressure on a table. So instead of doing that, first time trying with a grapefruit, I put pressure on it and rolled it around on my lower abdomen for a couple minutes, releasing the oils directly on to my skin. Since the solar plexus is where your umbilical cord was - it makes sense that it would be beneficial for the skin to directly absorb oils there. Plus your hands will smell nice for a ling time after the oils absorb into the skin.
I've used a laundry detergent that has grapefruit peel oil, other citrus and other plant essential oils in it for years.
Also, I thought of this thinking about what William Brahman said about him, that he would lay his hands on a person's belly and pray over them. Thanks for posting those videos recently.
Question, is there a better way than the following to get citrus oils? Thanks.
I'll dry the peels out, crush them with a mortar and pestle, boil it with water, put the water in the fridge, and skim the oil off of the top.
Not bad, with a lot benefits, considering one fruit costs usually a dollar.
