Grapefruit Essential Oils
The first documented use of grapefruit was done by a reverend back in 1750. It has been frequently referred to as one of the “Seven Wonders of Barbados” and the “Forbidden Fruit” which grows in grape-like clusters, giving it its name. This essential oil is collected through a cold pressed method and its main constituent is d-Limonene. The consumption of grapefruit, described as having a fruity, floral, citrusy aroma, may well help support a healthier metabolism.
