About the plant
Thought to be a hybridization of sweet orange and pomelo, the Grapefruit tree stands at a maximum height of 10 meters or 32 feet. Along with the orange, the pomelo was brought to Spain from Asia by Arabian traders in the 12th century. It was then brought to the West Indies by Captain Shaddock in the 18th century and from there it made its way to the Americas and was soon hybridized into the Grapefruit.
About the oil
Both oils are carefully harvested and cold pressed from the rinds of the fruit. In both the beautiful, gem-like orange-sapphire of the organically grown pink or the darker orange-red of the Certified Organic, the cold-press method gently extracts the sweet and fragrant oil without changing its molecular composition. To retain optimal freshness, Grapefruit essential oil should always be kept cold.
Pink grapefruit essential oil has a sweet citrus top note followed by a floral, musty middle note and green, herbaceous undertones.
The essential oil of grapefruit has been used for its nutritional (vitamin C) and anti-infectious properties for centuries. Grapefruit is used extensively to flavor soft drinks. It is a popular component of soaps and personal care products.
