About the Plant:

The potent, versatile Grapefruit oil is expressed from the peels of the grapefruit. Grapefruit trees (Citrus paradisi) developed as a hybrid result of mixing a sweet orange (Citrus sinensis) and a pomelo (Citrus maxima) together. The result was a large evergreen tropical fruiting tree reaching 25-45 feet in height at full maturity producing the now-popular sour and sweet fruit we know today.

The grapefruit tree has glossy leaves, white flowers and large, pale yellow fruits with pink flesh. The differences between the White and Pink Grapefruits are minor, but more Pink Grapefruit is produced because it is sweeter. The difference in cost is simply from supply and demand.

Grapefruit essential oil comes from glands in the grapefruit peel and is extracted by the process of cold pressing. Cold pressed citrus peel essential oils are not byproducts of the juice industry, although the fruits used in the extraction of this product are used for both essential oil and juice. Processing these fruits with different machinery yields cold pressed essential oils from the peels and juice from the pulp – the juice, being a secondary product of oil extraction.

Where It Grows:

The grapefruit tree originated in Barbados. It was first cultivated there in the 18th century, before it made its way into Europe and North America. Today, it is grown and harvested in the United States, France, Brazil, and Israel.

Grapefruit trees thrive in warm, subtropical climates with moderate humidity. They grow best with full sun exposure and prefer sandy or loamy soils, typically requiring the addition of fertilizer. Trees can be planted in spring or fall, based on local climate conditions. The warmer the region where the fruits are grown, the richer their flavor will be when harvested.

Traditional Uses and Lore:

First described in the 1750s as the "forbidden fruit" of Barbados when a hybridization between the Jamaican sweet orange and Indonesian pomelo. The name "grapefruit" may be attributed to the fruit's clustered growth pattern, bearing resemblance to a bunch of grapes. While there are several conjectures as to the precise origin of both the fruit and its name, the mystery of this history subsided once mass cultivation of grapefruit began.

After being introduced in the 1820s, Grapefruit in the United States is mostly grown in Florida. Grapefruit has a long history of use in folk medicines around the world and has been traditionally used as an antibacterial, anti-fungal, anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, astringent, and preservative.*

Today, reputed Grapefruit Essential Oil benefits can be traced back to this extensive traditional use. Since its introduction to commercial markets, grapefruit oil has become widely used as a flavoring agent in food and beverages and as a fragrant ingredient in soaps, detergents, and personal care products.* Grapefruit comes in white, pink, and red varieties, all of which produce essential oils with similar properties.
