EC Number: 289-904-6
Description and usage: Cold pressed from grapefruit’s crude peel. It has pale yellow color and a fresh, light, slightly bitter citrus scent that is very characteristic of the fruit. Grapefruit essential oil is believed by aroma therapists to be a spiritual up-lifter, and to ease muscle fatigue and stiffness. It is also a purifier of congested, oily and acne prone skin. Grapefruit oil is also sometimes added to creams and lotions as a natural toner, and in some circles it is believed to promote hair growth.
Blends well with: Grapefruit white blends well with other members of the citrus family, rosemary, cypress, lavender, geranium, cardamom and generally most spice oils.
Interesting facts: The grapefruit tree was originally from Asia. It is now grown and harvested in the United States, France, Brazil and Israel. The Grapefruit tree itself is a large, shiny gloss-leaved tree, about 10 meters (30 feet) high, with white flowers and large, pale yellow fruit. The differences between the White and Pink Grapefruit are minor. There is more pink grapefruit produced lately because it is sweeter than the white variety.
