Quick Overview

From Synergy Essentials, a rich organic Pink Grapefruit essential oil. Cold pressed from the peels of ripe grapefruit grown in South Africa, this is some of the most wonderful grapefruit oil we've ever tried. The distiller in South Africa specilies in a series of pure, therapeutic grade oils, and it's wonderful to find an organically grown grapefruit oil at these excellent prices. The local climate is ideal for growing of citrus fruit, and we think you'll agree when you sample this!

Botanical Name: Citrus paradisi

Thought to be a hybridization of sweet orange and pomelo, the Grapefruit tree stands at a maximum height of 10 meters or 32 feet tall. The Pomelo, along with the orange, was brought to Spain from Asia by Arabian traders in the 12th century. It was then packed into the West Indies by Captain Shaddock in the 18th century and from there, made its way to the Americas and was hybridized into the Grapefruit soon thereafter.

About the Oil
A beautiful reddish-pink color, this essential oil is obtained by cold-pressing the skin of organically cultivated pink grapefruit from South Africa. The cold-press extraction method gently extracts the sweet oil without changing the molecular composition. For this reason, this oil should always be kept cold to retain optimal freshness.
Aromatherapy Notes
This grapefruit essential oil has a fresh, sweet citrus top note followed by a floral, musty middle note and green, herbaceous undertones.
Traditional Uses
The essential oil of grapefruit has been used for its nutritional (vitamin C) and anti-infectious properties for centuries.
