Origin & History
The Grapefruit was originally a hybrid, created by cross-pollinating the pomelo fruit with the orange and as such it was not recognized as a distinct species of fruit until the 19th Century. It is grown and cultivated extensively in Brazil, Florida and California and is also grown throughout the Mediterranean as an ornamental tree. It is widely used to this day as a breakfast fruit and for its juice due to its unique fat-dissolving characteristics and detoxification on the body. As well as it being a popular fruit, it is also used in perfumery and cosmetics.
Grapefruit mixes well with other members of the citrus family such as bergamot, lemon, lime, orange and petitgrain, grapefruit gives a lively, citrussy edge to geranium, cedarwood, rose, basil, chamomile, citronella, frankincense, jasmine, lavender, palmarosa, rosewood and ylang ylang.
How to Store Your Oils: Essential oils can be quite delicate substances and factors such as strong light, heat, air and moisture can affect them. They are best kept in a cool, dark and dry place ideally in a box and in a cupboard. We wouldn't recommend transferring your essential oils into plastic bottles as the plastic can interact with the chemical makeup of your essential oils and may cause the plastic to deteriorate. Keeping them in their dark, amber bottle with the lid will prolong their life. Oils that are stored in the correct condition should last for years (citrus oils have a slightly shorter life).
Size: 10ml, presented in an amber glass bottle.
