Essential oil Grapefruit CP has a citrus scent with a characteristic bitter aspect. The scent is not particularly strong: use it undiluted. It goes well with other citrus fragrances. The characteristic bitter scent provides a more exciting fragrance. You usually use between 0,1% and 10% of this substance in the fragrance composition. It is mainly a top note in perfumes and is not very stable in more aggressive products: it is better not to use it in soap.

Store cool, dry and dark.


Essential oil Grapefruit CP is a light yellow to orange-yellow liquid at room temperature. The oil has a short shelf life and is sensitive to oxygen: replace the oil at least once a year. The oil is made by cold pressing the epicarp of the fruits of Citrus paradisi Macfad. AKA grapefruit. Like any essential oil, this one is also a mixture of various substances. An indication of the composition is the following:
> 25% - Limonene
2-5% - Myrcene, alpha Pinene

The botanical naming is difficult, various citrus oils are sold under the name grapefruit oil, such as those from the Citrus maxima and Citrus x grandis. Essential oil traders are also regularly confused, in many countries there is not even a word for all those variants. The English name is grapefruit, the French name is pamplemousse, but that can also refer to another fruit, the German name is grapefruit.
