T he pink grapefruit, or citrus x paradisi, is also known as the forbidden fruit. Do you suppose Adam and Eve knew?
High in vitamin C, electrolytes, and antioxidants, and supportive of improved feelings of wellness, the showoff of the citrus family grows much larger than its relatives, from its tree of some 20 to 30 feet high to its gloriously golden, yellow-skinned fruit. Pink grapefruit essential oil imparts a clean, fresh, sharp scent of citrus. It is highly regarded for its antiseptic, antimicrobial, antibacterial, anti-inflammation, and air purifying qualities.
Cold press extraction of the fresh peel yields a yellowish-green, fresh, sweet aromatic. Pink grapefruit essential oil benefits are highly favored for support of skincare, relief of sore muscles and joints, and, in pharmacology, digestive stimulation. The oil’s tartness supports the uplifting of the spirit and the contentedness of the senses. Like its citrus cousins lemon, lime, orange, and bergamot, grapefruit’s scent evokes cleansing, feelings of increased energy, elevated mood, and successfully stifled stress.
Grapefruit oil’s purifying properties make it a popular alternative to harsh, chemical-laden household and body care products. Grapefruit essential oil is commonly found in detergents, soaps, and household cleaners. It is also used in skin and hair care routines, to promote feelings of improved oily skin, and can boost hair and scalp products to support softer-feeling, more thoroughly clean-feeling hair.
Studies have shown that aromatic massage using grapefruit essential oil can aid in the support of perception of improved body image in older women. It can promote feelings of balance and relief from mental tiredness, as well as support feelings of improved mental function. In a randomized study in 2017, it was found that patients who were anxious before undergoing a colonoscopy felt less stress and anxiety, as well as feelings of abdominal discomfort while inhaling grapefruit essential oil.

TOTAL LIFE ESSENTIAL OILS FEATURES
- PEAK QUALITY: Sourced globally from across five continents
- PRECISE HARVEST: Assures each essential oil’s composition and potency remain intact
- SUPERIOR EXTRACTION: At first cut, by cold press or steam distillation for purity; reduces the breakdown of compounds
Cold press: Whole fruit or peel is pressed to derive essential oil, with solids from the plant included. The integral liquid is then filtered to separate oils from the juice.
Steam distillation: Delicate herb and leaf material is placed in a central unit, traditionally a stainless steel still. Steam is then sent into the container to release the aromatic molecules, creating a vapor. Compounds are then delivered to a condenser. Water is introduced to return the vapor to a liquid, then extracted. The liquid is carried to a separator, where the now-perfumed water and essential oils are separated.
- EXCLUSIVE SEAL: Packaged with a proprietary sealing method to remove all oxygen, prevent degradation and extend longevity.
- EVOCATIVE SCENTS: Exclusive, incomparable blends offer an explosion of sensory elation, therapeutic benefits
