Even though the pulp of grapefruit has plenty of its own benefits, grapefruit essential oil actually comes from the peel of the fruit, which holds a range of beneficial volatile compounds. As one of the most versatile essential oils, the aroma of grapefruit oil is clean, fresh and a little bit bitter, just like the actual fruit itself. It has the signature taste and smell of citrus fruits, which is why many people like to use it in natural household cleaner products and homemade beauty lotions, soaps or cosmetics.
Like the fruit itself, the essential oil of grapefruit is rich in antioxidants. Primarily, it has a wealth of vitamin C. This vitamin, combined with the other antioxidant components present in grapefruit essential oil, helps boosts the immune system and can fight against the activity of free radicals. The antiviral and antimicrobial properties of grapefruit essential oil also make it a good disinfectant.
Grapefruit essential oil keeps the skin clean. It is good for treating oily skin and acne and provides a refreshing feeling. It can also be beneficial for treating stiffness and cramps in the muscles.
