Referred to as a “forbidden fruit” and one of the “Seven Wonders of Barbados,” Grapefruit was first documented in 1750 by Welshman Rev. Griffith Hughes. It was first brought to the United States in 1823 by Count Odette Philippe. The name “grapefruit” is attributed to the fruits growing in clusters which resemble those of grapes. Known for its energizing and invigorating aroma, Grapefruit helps uplift mood and provides a clarifying effect to the mind.
Grapefruit is also renowned for its cleansing and purifying properties and is frequently used in skin care for its ability to promote the appearance of clear, healthy-looking skin. Grapefruit can also support a healthy metabolism. Its fresh citrus scent is balancing and uplifting to the mind and may help relieve anxiety.
Because grapefruit essential oil does not cause as much photosensitivity as other citrus oils it can be use when immediate exposure to sun light is unavoidable.
