This grapefruit essential oil comes directly from our trees and is rapidly extracted from the fresh peel only, not from crushed fruit. It is a mixture of approximately 50% Duncan (white) and 50% Ruby Star (red) grapefruits. The scent is very bright and refreshing, it has a tangy crisp, clean finish with an underlying sweetness, akin to savoring the juiciest grapefruit at its peak ripeness in the orchards.

The main constituents of grapefruit essential oil are well known, limonene (90%), β-myrcene (3%) and nootkatone (2%) but also β-pinene (13.3%), sabinene (2.2%) and α-pinene (2.1%).
