The Story

Grapefruit: Citrus paradisi (Macfad.)

Why grapefruit: The fruit of paradise! Grapefruit essential oil will whisk you off to a tropical island with its fresh and citrusy aroma. This is the perfect oil to add some rays of sunshine to an uplifting and energizing blend. The citrusy aroma of grapefruit aromatherapy essential oil is a top note with refreshing, high intensity. It is often used to modify other citrus oils. Try adding grapefruit to your morning diffuser blend for an uplifting burst of aromatic sunshine! It is also an ideal addition to homemade face washes and body scrubs.   

Quality Assured: Our organic grapefruit essential oil is responsibly sourced and distilled right here in the U.S.A. The essential oil is cold pressed from the peel of the grapefruit; this is preferred for therapeutic purposes. Every batch of oil is Certified Organic by Oregon Tilth and produced without the use of genetic engineering, artificial fertilizers, or pesticides. Additionally, our expert aromatherapists here at the Apothecary Shoppe personally assess all of our oils—using touch, taste, smell, and lab analyses—to ensure that your essential oil is suitable for use and entirely free of adulterants.

How to Use

Benefits: Grapefruit aromatherapy essential oil’s cleansing qualities help to promote radiant and healthy skin. It has wonderful energizing qualities, and is a light, balancing, and uplifting oil. 

Regulatory Status: Grapefruit essential oil is listed on the FDA Generally Recognized as Safe (GRAS) list.

How to Store Your Oil: Keep your essential oils stored in a cool dark place. Grapefruit (and all citrus oils), pine, and juniper should all be stored in the fridge to prevent oxidation. If an oil spoils from heat and oxidizes, it can cause skin irritation.
