Citrus paradisi

Since the very beginning, our range of citrus oils has been particularly popular, thanks to their fresh, invigorating scents and fabulous versatility. A key part of this range, our Grapefruit essential oil is extracted from the fruit’s peel and offers a lively fragrance while also providing cleansing and toning skin care benefits. Alternatively, combine a few drops of Grapefruit with Young Living V-6® Enhanced Vegetable Oil Complex and massage into skin at the end of day, and enjoy being surrounded by a fruity, happy fragrance before bedtime. Grapefruit oil is good to keep in stock at home as it has so many uses, and it blends well with florals; spicy oils and other citruses depending on your mood.

Rich in powerful limonene, Grapefruit essential oil is cold-pressed from the peels of the fresh fruit for a citrusy oil with the bright aroma of a grapefruit orchard. With a sweet, invigorating aroma, this oil can be used to encourage feelings of joy, satisfaction and playfulness. It's a great addition to DIY skin care products from lotions to bath salts. Get creative and combine it in a salt body scrub with other skin-toning oils such as Lemon and Juniper to create a simple home-spa experience that gives your skin a smooth-looking glow.

Botanical Information

About Citrus paradisi

A hybrid of the pomelo and the sweet orange, grapefruit is not just for breakfast! The fruit likely originated from Jamaica and was first popularised for consumption in the Caribbean before spreading in America and throughout citrus-growing areas. It’s now produced in locations throughout the world, including the United States, South Africa and Brazil. 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.
