Note: Grapefruit shemen is different from other citrus essential oils because it is NOT a photosensitizer. Though it does contain Furocoumarins which have a photosensitizing effect, it is balance with the other chemical constituents. This is an example as to why plants, herbs and essential oils, in their whole and not in parts, are safer than as they are when certain constituents are extracted for so called “health” products. Since Grapefruit shares many of the same properties of other citrus oils, it is a good alternative to use. Other citrus oils require you to not be exposed to direct sunlight for up to 12 hours upon use to be safe and avoid burning.

It's known amongst aromatherapists who are Covenant Believers that there is a high vibrational frequency of life that emanates from plants and essential oils grown and/or distilled in Israel. This vitality is demonstrated in lab results which test for such. In fact, one can take a sampling of plants from the same crop, in the same year, and send those to different corners of the earth to be distilled and, when all samples are tested; the vitality results are higher for those which were distilled in Israel.
This is amazing and easily understood when we take into account that the very presence of Elohim was on the Temple Mount and in the Covenant Land of Israel. Also, the power and the energy of the Ark of the Covenant was and, probably still is, located in the Land.
Knowing that Elohim, the Creator of the Universe, made all things and is the Author of LIFE and LIGHT and Who chose to dwell with His people in the Land of Israel causes us to ponder how that may affect living things such as plants. In fact, His very presence or even the remnants of His presence must have an effect on everything within the Land and, particularly, those things which we know bring restorative health and operate from a measurable signature frequency. After all, His presence and life giving energy flows from Mount Tsiyon over all the earth! How much more so is it concentrated from the place wherein He put His name* and chose to reign from?!
The Hebrew word name in Hebrew is shem which can also denote Elohim’s power, character and authority. See related article His Name is in Essential Oils forthcoming in Remnant Rambling Newsletter
