Description: 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.
Common Uses: Grapefruit Pink essential oil is believed by aromatherapists 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 though there is not any medical documentation verifying this.
Note: Medium to Top
Strength of Aroma: Medium
Blends well with: Grapefruit pink blends well with other members of the citrus family, rosemary, cypress, lavender, geranium, cardamon and generally most spice oils
Aromatic Scent: Grapefruit Pink essential oil has a fresh, tart citrus smell that is very characteristic of the fruit.
History: The differences between the White and Pink Grapefruit are minor. The difference in cost is simply an example of supply and demand; there is more pink grapefruit produced because it is sweeter than the white variety.
Cautions:None declared, though in rare cases it may cause some photosensitization.
