  Grapefruit, Red
Citrus paradisii Macf., organically produced, cold-pressed rind, Mexico
• Reduce Food Cravings
• Oily hair and skin in low dilution


This may be the sweetest citrus oil I have ever experienced, much sweeter than my beloved Pink Grapefruit. Aromatically it reminds me of a Jolly Rancher candy!

I would expect this variation to be equally useful in treating oil skin or hair, but I am reminded the all cold pressed grapefruit oils are photosensitizers so need caution if used in a leave on product. It might be delightful in a shampoo for oily hair, however.

Recent research has also shown that inhaling Grapefruit Essential Oil may help reduce the craving for sweets. In all honesty, I am unable to determine whether the Grapefruit oil used in that research study was white, pink or red. However the sweetness of this oil makes me think that in an inhaler or aromastick it might help stave off the munchies.

This sweet oil, in a diffuser, should delight small children, and is child safe as long as you keep the sun safety in mind.

Safety: Robert Tisserand advises: phototoxicity (low risk), avoid use before exposing to sunlight or tanning bed, maximum dermal use 4%.   

SHELF LIFE: Approximately 1 to 2 years after you open the bottle.  Storing in the dark, refrigerated, and decanting half full bottles into smaller, full bottles will extend shelf life.

    I’ve always loved citrus scents, and grapefruit is one of my favorites. Between that and it’s fairly low cost, grapefruit is one of the oils I like to compare between companies. This has easily become one of my favorites! It hits the balance between sweet and tart just right for using in many of my favorite grapefruit blends. I’ll be back for more!
