As a member of Indigo Herbs top quality essential oils, Grapefruit Essential Oil is a great uplifting ingredient that can be used in aromatherapy and diluted in a carrier oil to be used topically. Although not one of the most popular oils, Grapefruit is certainly one of the best if you’re feeling under the weather. Why not try our Grapefruit Essential Oil for a citrusy invigorating pick-me-up after a stressful day.

The history of the Grapefruit starts fairly late in the 18th century but could have been an earlier hybrid that originated from the Asian subcontinent. Grapefruits were first documented growing in Barbados by a Welshman called Griffith Hughes in 1750. Scientists have found that the fruit is probably a hybrid between the Sweet Orange and the Indonesian Pomelo. Both of these fruits originate in Asia pointing to the hypothesis that the grapefruit could have been a naturally occurring hybrid that was brought to Barbados from the Philippines in the 17th century. Grapefruits became popular when they were introduced to Florida in the 19th century and were selectively bred into several distinct varieties; the tangelo, the Minneola tangelo and the oroblanco all have separate qualities that make them individually outstanding.

Grapefruits have been known by several different names throughout history; ‘Forbidden Fruit’ and ‘the Shaddock’ are just two of these. The shaddock refers to how Grapefruits grow in clumps (a little like a cluster of grapes) but also to a legend that the Grapefruit was initially bred by a man called Captain Shaddock. Grapefruit is an evergreen tree that can reach a height of around 14 meters with dark green leaves and white star shaped flowers. Depending on variety the inside of the fruit can be either white, yellow or red.

Grapefruit essential oil can be used in the bath for relieving tiredness, stress, apathy and nervous exhaustion or it can be vapourised in an oil burner to create an uplifting and rejuvenating atmosphere. It can be added to a massage oil and used as a detoxifying rub, and when added to a face cream it can be used for problem skin. See How to use Essential Oils

Using Aromatherapy in your daily routine is simple, easy and can be enormously beneficial. Pure neat essential oils can be evaporated into the environment and inhaled while products that have already been diluted in an oil can be applied straight to the skin. There are lots of different ways to utilize the pure neat essential oils; these can be made into a room spray or used in an an essential oil burner/ vaporizer.

This is a lovely way to perfume an environment and essential oils are very good at affecting the mood, mind and emotions when evaporated into the air. Adding essential oils to your bath is the best way to ensure the oils are absorbed through the pores of the skin while also inhaling the vapors; maximum benefit can then be had whilst enjoying a soak. Additionally the neat oils can be diluted into a carrier medium. This can be a cream, body butter, face cream, vegetable body oil and bath salts to name a few. For full instructions go to our How to use Aromatherapy page.

Grapefruit essential oil can be used in the bath, or vapourised in an oil burner. It can be added to a massage oil or cream. Use 6-8 drops per bath and 10 -18 drops per 30ml of carrier oil. See Essential Oil Dosage Chart

Manufacture Process

Our essential oils are manufactured to GMP standards using steam distillation or cold pressing.

Indigo Herbs Grapefruit Essential Oil is extracted using the “cold pressing” method. Plants and plant parts (such as the rinds of fruits) are placed in a spike-filled container and slowly punctured. The cold press machines also utilise centrifugal force to help separate the oil from the rest of the plant pulp and liquid. The puncturing and spinning process releases the essential oils, which are then collected and bottled resulting in 100% pure essential oil.

Essential oils need to be diluted first; never apply an essential oil directly to the skin. Avoid contact with eyes and mouth. Avoid if you are taking homeopathic remedies.
