Organic Grapefruit Essential Oil

Posted by Zongle Therapeutics on

Grapefruit is well-known for its sour and tangy taste, it is the round, yellow-orange fruit of an evergreen citrus tree. The fruit grows in clusters hence inspired the name “grape” fruit. Grapefruit is used in a variety of salads and its pulp has a plenty of its own benefits including being a popular fat-burning fruit. Grapefruit essential oil is actually extracted from the peel of the fruit. The most important constituent in grapefruit essential oil is limonene, which ranges from 88 to 95 percent. Limonene is usually found concentrated in the peels of the grapefruit, where the oil is extracted from.

Grapefruit essential oil is a potent extract derived from the Citrus X  paradisi grapefruit plant. Pretty much like its other citrus counterparts, Grapefruit essential oil is derived from the rind of this fruit through cold-pressing.


Grapefruit is actually bitter in taste and so is its aroma; clean fresh with a hint of bitterness. Widely used in aromatherapy, the oil tastes and smell like signature citric fruits, and comes in light orange color.

Benefits and Uses

Many of grapefruit essential oil’s benefits are due to one of its main constituents limonene. Some benefits are:

Limonene, one of the primary components in grapefruit oil, has shown to balance blood sugar levels, thus helping the body to better manage digestion and stress- related sugar cravings.
