Let’s talk about Grapefruit Essential Oil! At Young Living, we offer a range of oils to suit every desire and preference for rejuvenating, enticing, and inspiring aromas. However, since the very beginning, our range of citrus oils have been particularly popular with our members, thanks to their fresh, invigorating scents and fabulous versatility. In this blog, we’ll be giving you the low down on one of our absolute favourites – Grapefruit Essential Oil – helping you to understand how it can best be used, how the oil itself is made and what benefits can come with introducing this refreshing oil to your daily routine!


How do we produce Grapefruit Essential Oil?

Young Living’s Grapefruit essential oil is produced by cold pressing the peels of fresh grapefruits, allowing us to create this citrusy essential oil and bottle the smell of a sweet grapefruit orchard for our members. The name ‘grapefruit’ comes from the appearance of grapefruit trees, huge, towering trees that are lush with foliage and grape-like clusters of fruit and can grow up to 7 metres in height.

Please Note: After applying Grapefruit essential oil, avoid direct sunlight and UV rays for up to 12 hours.

What are the benefits of Grapefruit Essential Oil?

With its vivid colour and sharp, delicious taste, it’s easy to see why grapefruits are so popular as a refreshing citrus snack. However, despite how flavourful they are as a fruit, their benefits do not end there! From its skin-cleansing properties to its beautifully sweet scent which works both alone and when blended with complementary oils, Grapefruit essential oil is as adaptable and multi-functional as it is fruity and uplifting.

Which essential oils does Grapefruit blend best with?

Thanks to its powerful, citrus scent, Grapefruit essential oil works well when blended with many other oils. To create a refreshing DIY spray and provide your home with a beautiful aroma, we love mixing equal parts of Grapefruit with Peppermint, Orange, Lemon and Bergamot alongside water in a spray bottle before spritzing as desired. To truly bring the scent of summer to your home, you can also try blending grapefruit with floral oils such as lavender, providing your bedroom, office, or kitchen with a bright, happy fragrance that’s sure to bring about feelings of joy and playfulness!

In addition to our fantastic oil, at Young Living we offer a beautifully nourishing Grapefruit Lip Balm. This handy lip balm is compact in size, allowing you to carry it with you on the go, and offering a light and refreshing addition to your lip care routine. Pucker up and enjoy a magically moisturised pout alongside the sweet aroma of grapefruit throughout the day!

Please note: Research shows that the level of grapefruit essential oil included in the Grapefruit Lip Balm should pose no photosensitivity issues. To support this research, Young Living performed in-house photosensitivity testing.
