Grapefruit Essential Oil

Transport yourself to the Caribbean beaches with one of the natural Wonders of Barbados. Grapefruit Essential Oil exhilarates and renews your mind, body and soul.

Also known as Citrus racemosa, Grapefruits have a fresh & tangy flavour with fragrant and refreshing odour. Grapefruit has become a popular & well recognised essential oil for its wide range of benefits that support your overall well-being.



Grapefruit is a native of the tropical Caribbean islands and is a natural hybrid of two commonly known citrus fruits - Indonesian Pomelo and Jamaican Sweet Orange. This sweet-tasting citrus fruit grows in grape-like bunches, earning 'Grapefruit' its English name.

Grapefruits were first officially recorded in 1750 in Barbados - their unique appearance and flavour earned them the nickname “Forbidden Fruit”. They are also called Citrus paradisi, after the idyllic paradise of their homeland.

Like all other citrus oils, Grapefruit Essential Oil has a naturally energetic and refreshing aroma. The essential oil is cold-pressed out of the thick rind, ensuring its purity and quality.

Being an astringent, Grapefruit Essential Oil clarifies oily, clogged skin. Being rich in antioxidants, this oil helps reduce damage from environmental stressors such as UV exposure and pollution.

Grapefruit Essential Oil has a bracing, euphoric scent that is instantly iconic and recognizable. Its fresh and uplifting scent has a wide range of mood-elevating effects - from calming down an overstimulated mind to balancing moods when one’s spirit is low.
