The name “grapefruit” is attributed to the fruits growing in clusters which resemble those of grapes. Commonly known for its sour and tangy taste, grapefruit is the rotund, yelloworange fruit of an evergreen citrus tree. Grapefruit essential oil is derived from the rind of this fruit and is cherished for its many uses and benefits as well for its refreshing aroma and robust flavour.

The United States is the world leader in grapefruit production, producing over 1.5 million tons of grapefruit every year.
The grapefruit is a hybrid of the sweet orange and the pomelo. The “x” in its scientific name, Citrus x paradisi, indicates its hybrid origin. It was created in the 1750s in Barbados. A grapefruit tree usually grows to be about 16-20 feet (5-6 m) tall, although they can be as tall as nearly 50 feet (15 m).
The essential oil is cold-pressed from the peel. The processing of Grapefruit essential oil, similar to the processing of many other citrus oils, is a by-product of the fresh fruit industry. Fresh grapefruit that cannot be sold to the fresh market because of bruising or other aesthetic deficiencies are pressed for juice and essential oil. The juice and oil are separated, providing a dual use for this leftover fruit.
