Grapefruit belongs to the Rutaceae plant family.
Citrus paradisi originates from Jamaica and is an evergreen fruit tree, growing up to 9m tall.
The trees can produce approximately 500 fruits per year.
Its oil is extracted by cold expression. It is pale yellow with a sweet, citrus aroma.
The constituents of grapefruit oil are limonene and cadinene.
Aromatherapists use the oil for its diuretic, antibacterial, antiseptic, antidepressant and astringent qualities.
To make grapefruit water, we obtain the oil through cold expression and disperse it in water.
Our Tea Tree Water toner spray has a high content of grapefruit water. Its astringent action improves skin tone and works wonders for acne-prone or oily skin types.
