Real Purity adheres to only the highest standards when creating each of its products – which includes using only the highest quality essential oils. Today, we want to highlight two of our favorites. Read on to learn about the the benefits of Sandalwood and Grapefruit Extract.

Grapefruit Extract:

  1. Diuretic:  Grapefruit extract removes toxins and waste via excess water from the body via urination.
  2. Mood Booster: Grapefruit extract has a sharp, invigorating, refreshing scent and decreases feelings of anxiety and depression.
  3. Protects Against Illness:  Since grapefruit extract is an anti-bacterial, anti-fungal and anti-viral agent, it helps to prevent most bacteria, fungi and viruses from creeping into the body.
  4. Skin Cleanser: Due to it being an anti-bacterial, anti-fungal and anti-viral agent, grapefruit extract is able to remove dirt and other toxins from the skin, which reduces unsightly blackheads, whiteheads and other blemish breakouts. 

Sandalwood Extract:

  1. Cold & Flu Treatment: Sandalwood extract has antiviral components, meaning that it can help your body get rid of pesky cold and flu viruses faster!
  2. Prevents Muscle Cramping: Sandalwood is a powerful antispasmodic due to its ability to relax blood vessels, muscles and nerves.
  3. Promotes Calm: Sandalwood extract has a lingering, subtle, woodsy aroma and its scent can increase awareness and decrease anxiety levels.
  4. Skin Moisturizer: Sandalwood extract is known for preventing skin chaffing and chapped skin because it has moisturizing properties.  It is also used in many lotions and oils to treat eczema and to reduce the appearance of dark, rough scars.
