EXTRACTION METHOD: The essential oil is extracted through the process of expeller pressing using the fresh peel. The yield is lower than oranges and lemons when distilled so this is why Grapefruit is typically pressed as this produces a much higher yield.
The grapefruit belongs to the Rutaceae family, like all citrus fruits. The tree has glossy leaves with the fruit hanging down. The grapefruit is thought to be an accidental hybrid fruit of the pumelo orange and the sweet orange.
This wonderfully, refreshing oil is versatile and very popular in aromatherapy for its therapeutic benefits similar to those of other citrus oils. It has an invigorating, sharp and stimulating aroma. In aromatherapy and vaporiser treatments, it can give you the boost you need and leave you feeling revived and revitalised.

Its powerful citrusy aroma brings a vibrant element and can help lift the blend. This super versatile oil blends well with other citrus oils, woody oils and floral oils.
Grapefruit Essential Oil is commonly used in skincare for those who have oily skin or a greasy complexion. It is said to help smooth and soften the skin leaving it feeling supple and revitalised. It is an astringent so it is great for use in a toner.
Grapefruit Essential Oil can also be used in combination to your regular shampoo for stronger, healthier and shinier hair. Grapefruit Oil is often used in hair care products for those with oily hair as it has balancing and clarifying properties.
Grapefruit Oil is phototoxic, like all citrus oils so my cause irritation when exposed to direct sunlight immediately after application.
How to Use
Dilution: Grapefruit Oil has quite a high dermal limit so you can dilute at a percentage of 2% of the finished blend (2ml of essential oil to 100ml of carrier oil). Do not use undiluted on the skin.
Skincare: Add a few of drops to your daily cleanser for added benefits. Or why not try adding it to a floral water to make your own super simple toner. Remember to shake it up before use. Apply the toner to a cotton wool pad and sweep it over your skin after cleansing.
Massage: Make your own massage blend by adding Grapefruit to your favourite massage oil base. Try experimenting by combining Grapefruit other essential oils with a carrier oil. We recommend Sweet Almond (#215), Grapeseed (#210) or Coconut Oil (#203).
Haircare: Add a drop or two to your shampoo for added benefits or make your own hair mask with warm Coconut Oil and a few drops of Grapefruit Essential Oil. Massage into hair and scalp, cover with a towel, leave on for at least half an hour then wash and condition as normal. Top tip ' begin to lather the shampoo before adding water to hep emulsify the oil which will help it rinse out easier.

Blends well with: Bergamot, Cypress, Frankincense, Geranium Rose, Jasmine, Lavender, Lime, Mandarin, Neroli, Palmarosa, Patchouli, Peppermint, Rosemary and Ylang Ylang.
