Historical Background of Pink Grapefruit Essential Oil
Pink Grapefruit Essential Oil is obtained from a fruit that is called “Grapefruit” and “Citrus Paradisi“botanically. When it comes to Grapefruit and its oil production, China has been the major producer primarily and then, America and Vietnam also took part in its production.
The word “Grape” in this fruit’s name doesn’t have anything to do with “Grapes” as a fruit, but it is given this name because it grows in grape-like clusters on the plant. Nutritious peels of the Grapefruit are removed, and then its oil is extracted through a cold-pressing method. Pink Grapefruit essential oil has a pale yellow color, and its aroma is intensely fruity, citrusy, and slightly lemony.
