INCI Name: Citrus paradisi (Grapefruit) Peel Oil
This invigoratingly fresh Essential Oil is cold-pressed from Pink Grapefruit grown south of the border in sunny Mexico. The fruit of this large tree with large white blossoms is the basis for this thin peach-coloured oil that enhances the scent of other citrus oils. It has a middle note with medium strength that brightens blends of herbal and spicy oils. The Grapefruit (Pink) Essential Oil has a fresh, sweet citrus smell that is very characteristic of the fruit.
Its bright aroma is believed by aromatherapists to be energizing and a spiritual up-lifter. It is also used with congested, oily and acne-prone skin, and it is added to creams and lotions as a natural toner in the treatment of cellulite. Grapefruit Essential Oil is reputed to comfort nervous exhaustion, soothe depression, and relieve muscle fatigue and stiffness.
The differences between the White and Pink Grapefruit are minor. More Pink Grapefruit is produced because it is sweeter than the White variety.
