Discovered in Barbados during the eighteenth century, Grapefruit is believed to be a hybrid of orange and pomelo. It would be hard to confuse it with other citrus fruits though as it hangs clustered together like a bunch of grapes, hence the name.
Dubbed as one of the “Seven Wonders of Barbados”, this “forbidden fruit” adds a zesty tang to recipes with its sour and somewhat sweet flavour. Aromatically, it has a fresh and citrusy scent that is both uplifting and invigorating. If you couldn't find the will to work out especially after a long day, diffuse Grapefruit essential oil for an instant burst of energy!
Lauded for its cleansing and purifying properties, Grapefruit can be found in many skincare products such as moisturisers, lotions, and cleansers. If you have teens with troubled skin, making this oil as part of their daily skincare regimen may help reduce the appearance of blemishes!
