Grapefruit Essential Oil

If you are feeling a little down, lethargic or even depressed, this is the essential oil for you.
Grapefruit essential oil is one of the most uplifting of essential oils and can be great for making you feel more positive and optimistic.

The oil from grapefruit is also known as stimulating to the lymphatic system and therefore great for a de toxing routine.

The lymphatic system is the one that helps the body eliminate toxins, so if you are switching to healthier lifestyle, perhaps giving up smoking or just eliminating caffeine and alcohol from your diet, grapefruit essential oil can help your body cope with the process.

This oil is also indicated for the treatment of cellulite, obesity and water retention. It has an uplifting and reviving effect which makes it valuable for treating stress, depression and exhaustion.
Grapefruit also is used in a lot of skin preparations as it is gently astringent, opens pores and clears oily complexions. It can be found in our skin oil.

Grapefruit Essential Oil

Grapefruit is a favourite citrus in many households. Also known as Shaddock in many areas of the world (after its first breeder, Captain Shaddock, from Jamaica), the fruit’s scientific name is Citrus Paradisi. The Essential Oil of Grapefruits is also very popular, with a fresh, clean citrusy scent. It is extracted from the fruit’s peel using compression. In this blog, you can read about the benefits of Grapefruit Essential Oil and some ways to use it.

How to Use Grapefruit Essential Oil

Popular Uses: A lot of people like to use Grapefruit Essential Oil when they need to concentrate on work or study. This can be done using a variety of the methods discussed above, including through diffusion. It is also commonly used to calm down after work for relaxation by adding several drops to your bath. This is also a great way to treat sore or fatigued muscles, as well as skin irritations. For these latter two, other methods include applying a diluted solution directly onto the desired area.

Origin of Grapefruit

Grapefruit Essential OIl

Grapefruit are actually a hybrid fruit, and a cross between the Jamaican sweet orange and the Indonesian pomelo. Both of these ancestor species were introduced to Barbados from Asia in the 1700s, and the hybrid most likely began naturally after seeds from the different species became crossed or planted close together.

The new breed was first noted in 1750 by a Welsh Reverend named Griffith Hughes, and initially known as “the forbidden fruit”. They didn’t become popular overseas until the late 1800s, when a citrus pioneer named Kimball Chase Atwood started the Atwood Grapefruit Company. Atwood soon possessed the largest grapefruit grove in the world, which later found the first pink grapefruit in 1906.

Grapefruit Trees
Most grapefruit trees reach a moderate height of 5-6 metres, but can grow up to three times that size. As with most citrus trees, the leaves are typically large, shiny, and dark green to soak up the sun. The tree sprouts white flowers with four petals, which give way to a large fruit closely resembling an orange.

Unlike an orange, the flesh of a grapefruit can vary wildly in colour and taste. The most common breeds of grapefruit have white, pink, or red pulp inside. Whiter grapefruit tend to be acidic and somewhat sour or bitter, while redder grapefruit can be extremely sweet or tart. The peel of the grapefruit (which is used to extract grapefruit essential oil) mostly shares the aroma of the fruit.

Grapefruit can be eaten whole, as part of a snack (for example, by coating the pulp with a thin layer of sugar to add sweetness…) or used as part of a meal. Costa Ricans sometimes cook their grapefruit to reduce their acidity, or add a sweetened milk confectionary called Dulce de Leche (literally “candy of milk”) to produce a dessert named Toronja Rellena (“stuffed grapefruit”). Grapefruit jam is also incredibly popular, particularly in countries like Haiti.
