Common Uses: Grapefruit Pink essential oil is believed by aromatherapists to be a spiritual up-lifter, and to ease muscle fatigue and stiffness. It is also a purifier of congested, oily and acne prone skin. Grapefruit oil is also sometimes added to creams and lotions as a natural toner, and in some circles it is believed to promote hair growth though there is not any medical documentation verifying this.

Strength of Aroma: Medium
Blends well with: Grapefruit pink blends well with other members of the citrus family, rosemary, cypress, lavender, geranium, cardamom and generally most spice oils
Aromatic Scent: Grapefruit Pink essential oil has a fresh, tart citrus smell that is very characteristic of the fruit.
History: The differences between the White and Pink Grapefruit are minor. The difference in cost is simply an example of supply and demand; there is more pink grapefruit produced because it is sweeter than the white variety.
