Grapefruit oil is extracted from Citrus paradisi (also known as Citrus racemosa and C. maxima var. racemosa) from the Rutaceae family and is also known as shaddock. Grapefruit essential oil 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 fresh, sweet and citrusy, just like the actual fruit itself. Due to the unique taste and smell of citrus fruits, many people like to use it in natural household cleaner products and homemade beauty lotions, soaps or cosmetics.

Point of Interests
This rather big yellow fruit does not resemble grapes, and yet it is called “grapefruit” – why? Well, the grapefruit was originally called the “forbidden fruit” because in 1750, Reverend Griffith Hughes came upon the grapefruit and called it that while he was looking for the origin of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil in the Garden of Eden. It was the Jamaicans that coined the term “grapefruit” because of the way the fruit grew in bunches like grapes. Grapefruit is a hybrid originating in Barbados as an accidental cross between two introduced species, sweet orange (C. sinesis) and pomelo or shaddock (C. maxima), both of which were introduced from Asia in the seventeenth century.
