GRAPEFRUIT OIL, PINK, USA (15ML)

Latin Name: Citrus paradisi Macfayden, fam. Rutaceae

Part of Plant: Peel

Country of Origin: USA

Method of Production: Cold pressed

 

Citrus x paradisi, which has also been known by other botanical names such as Citrus racemosa and commonly known as Grapefruit, is a member of the Rutaceae botanical family.  It is a hybrid that is believed to have been started on the island of Barbados and a cross between the pummelo (Citrus maxima) and sweet orange (Citrus sinensis), and is now cultivated commercially in warm climates like Florida and California in the United States.  Known for its popularity as a breakfast food, it comes in several varieties that are usually considered white, pink, or red.

 

Grapefruit essential oil has sweet, citrusy aroma with a tangy zest that can make almost anyone smile.  It blends well with most other oils including all of the other citruses.  Consider blending with oils like Peppermint, Lemon, Rosemary, or Cardamom for an invigorating blend to start out your day.  Also, try combining with a little bit of Bergamot, Lavender, and Patchouli for a relaxing diffuser blend.

 

Usage ideas:

  • Add a few drops of essential oils to a diffuser, cotton round, or a tissue.

  • Dilute to 1% in your choice of carrier oils to make a face serum or body oil.  Apply a small amount to damp skin after washing to help seal in moisture.  

  • Add 5-15 drops to 1 oz. of your choice of carrier oils to make a massage oil.

  • Mix a few drops with an unscented liquid soap or bubble bath and add to the tub when filling. 

For convenience on the go…

  • Properly dilute with your choice of carrier oils in a roller bottle.

  • Add up to a total of 15 drops of essential oils to a personal aromatic inhaler (aroma stick).

    Now younger than her years!

    Remy, my 9 year old black mouth cur and favorite walking buddy, highly recommends Dr. P's Doggie Drops! Since starting those she has a spring in her step and a smile on her face!

    Review of mobile website

    The website is pretty, visually, and it appears to be easy to navigate. My suggestion though, because it's infuriating to me, is that when I go to check out a specific oil, and read reviews on it, when I go back to shopping, it takes me back to the very first page of the essential oils. It is aggravating when I am down into the site by four or five pages and I get thrown back to the very beginning again. Anyway for you to fix this?

    I didn’t order online, but I did visit Crystal in the shop! Wow! What a wonderful experience!

    These are some of the oils that I purchased today from her, and I am absolutely pleased with their quality!

    I will definitely be returning to expand my collection from this amazing business!

    4 Back leg surgeries

    My 10 year old Australian Shepherd has had both back leg CCL's repaired and one leg had to have 3 surgeries. She still walks and functions, but she also askes for her CBD oil. She doesn't take it everyday, but a few times a week. I really don't know what we would do without it. Thank You so much!
