Pink Grapefruit essential oil has a sweet, fruity, citrusy and fresh aroma.
History: The grapefruit is a subtropical citrus tree known for its sour to semi‐sweet fruit, an 18th‐century hybrid first bred in Barbados. The leaves of this evergreen tree are long and thin. One story of the fruit’s origins is that a Captain Shaddock brought pomelo seeds to Jamaica and bred the first fruit. However, it more likely that it originated as a naturally occurring hybrid. The hybrid fruit, historically called “the forbidden fruit”, was first documented in 1750 by a Welshman, Rev. Griffith Hughes in a book called The Natural History of Barbados. China is the top producer of grapefruit followed by The United States and Mexico.
Uses: Pink grapefruit oil may be used in aromatherapy. Use for stress headaches, nervous exhaustion, performance stress, and for a mood enhancer. To purify the air, diffuse 20 drops. Mix 10 drops in 8 ounces of water, shake and spray to disinfect surfaces.
