GRAPEFRUIT (Pink) – United States
Citrus x Paradisi
High in vitamin C 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, large yellow-skinned fruit. Cold press extraction of the fresh peel yields a yellowish-green, fresh, sweet aromatic. The essential oil is valued for its support of skin care, circulation, muscles and joints and digestive stimulation. Studies have shown that aromatherapy massage using grapefruit essential oil can aid in the inhibition of triglycerides, the formation of fat cells, and the support of feelings of improved body image in older women.
