USA. Grapefruit "Ruby Red" (Citrus paradisi) Essential Oil, Cold Pressed
The scent of Red Grapefruit is sweet/tart and tangy, and its effects are energizing and refreshing. For blending, it is considered a top note.
Grapefruit essential oil is full of powerful antioxidants such as limonene. It is said to increase the metabolism and reduce appetite, so it is often used in blends to help with weight loss. It is noted for relieving stress and inducing relaxation, and also has antifungal and antibacterial properties. Like other essential oils derived from citrus, its shelf life is relatively limited, and it's best stored in your fridge.
Our essential oils are sold in amber glass bottles with a dropper orifice for drop-by-drop administration. Do not ingest essential oils unless under the guidance of a licensed health care practitioner or experienced aromatherapist. Essential oils should always be diluted in a carrier oil before being applied to the skin. (Some examples of carrier oils: Jojoba, Sunflower, Grapeseed, Rosehip Seed, Castor, and Avocado; gently liquified Coconut Oil, Shea, or Cocoa Butter can also work for creating thicker body care products.) Always test the diluted essential oil on a small patch of skin before applying more widely.
The maximum recommended strength for topical use of Ruby Red Grapefruit essential oil is 4% (4 drops per teaspoon of carrier oil).
