Posted by Zongle Therapeutics on

Being a subtropical citrus tree, 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. It originated from Barbados as an accidental cross between two species that are sweet orange (C. sinensis) and pomelo (or shaddock) (C. maxima). Both were introduced from Asia in the seventeenth century. Often people confuse it with the very similar parent species, pomelo.

When it was first found, it was known as the ‘forbidden 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. The trees of evergreen grapefruit grow to a height of 5 to 6 meters. They may also reach to 13 to 15 meters. The color of the leaves is dark green, and the texture is glossy. Moreover, the length of the leaves is up to 15 centimeters and are thin. The color of the flesh of this fruit varies depending on the cultivars, which include pink, white and red pulps of varying sweetness. You must be aware that Grapefruit can benefit in weight loss. In the same way, using concentrated grapefruit essential oil for the same purpose is more beneficial.

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.

The aroma of grapefruit oil is so fresh and clean that it makes you feel pleasant. The smell is same as that of citrus fruit which is the reason why people like to use it in cleaning products and homemade beauty lotions, soaps or cosmetics. Moreover, it contains high amounts of antioxidants and phytochemicals. Some of these antioxidants are vitamin C, myrcene, terpinene, pinene and citronellol. It also curbs sugar cravings, so it is beneficial for those who want to control the intake of sugar.


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.
