About the Plant
The potent, versatile Pink Grapefruit Oil is expressed from the peels of the grapefruit. The grapefruit tree (Citrus paradisi) is a hybrid, developed by 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, which produces the now-popular sour and sweet fruit we know today.
Grapefruit originated in Barbados; it was first bred there in the 18th century, before it made its way to Florida and California.
Scent: Our Certified Organic Pink Grapefruit Essential Oil has a refreshing citrus scent true to its name. This oil is more reminiscent of a grapefruit’s zesty peel than of the juicy fruit itself. When compared to our Certified Organic Grapefruit Oil, the tangy and energizing aroma of Pink Grapefruit Oil is a joyfully green, cool, clean spice.
Blends With:Although most essential oils blend well together, Pink Grapefruit blends particularly well with Bergamot, Rose Geranium, Lemon, Red Mandarine, Lemongrass, Palmarosa, Lavender, Lemon Verbena, Rosemary Verbenon and Ginger.
Composition: Cold-pressed Grapefruit Oil contains approximately 84% limonene, plus pinene, sabinene, myrcene, citronellol, decanol, linalool, geraniol, terpinen-4-ol and nootkatone.
