Research: Grapefruit EO & Obesity

RESEARCH: According to this 2010 study, the scent of grapefruit essential oil has an anti-obesity effect (plus, it smells amazing)!

"When rats were exposed to the scent from grapefruit oil for 5 weeks, their body weight and food intake decreased. When rats were treated with the scent for 20 min, salivary amylase secretion was enhanced without changes in fluid secretion. These findings suggest that the scent from grapefruit oil activates sympathetic nerves, but not parasympathetic nerves, resulting in an anti-obesity effect."
