Grapefruit essential oil has a sharp, fresh, tangy fragrance and is light ruby color with a watery viscosity. The Grapefruit was first described in 1750 by the reverend Griffith Hughes who called it the ‘forbidden fruit’ of Barbados. At one time Grapefruits were harvested by using picking hooks which often caused damage to the fruit. The modern method is to pick them by hand, using ladders to access the higher branches.
The therapeutic properties of Grapefruit oil are antidepressant, antiseptic, aperitif, diuretic, disinfectant, lymphatic stimulant, tonic and anti-infectious.
