Our opinion

An essence with a milder and less bitter aroma than that of white grapefruit essence.


Organic grapefruit essence is obtained by cold expression of the citrus peel. This method of extraction, different from steam distillation, also allows the extraction of non-volatile molecules such as flavonoids and gives it its characteristic colour.

Precautions for use
  • Keep out of reach of children.
  • Do not use during the first 3 months of pregnancy, nor in young children without medical advice.
  • Given the risk of photosensitization due to the presence of coumarins, also ensure low doses in mixtures. For safety reasons, avoid exposing the treated skin to daylight for several hours after application.
  • This oil has a tendency to irritate when used undiluted, so be sure to dilute it sufficiently for cutaneous use.
  • Avoid contact with the eyes.
  • Risk of allergy: take care not to overdose in mixtures. An elbow test is recommended prior to any skin application (min 48 hours before use).
  • There is no incompatibility between Grapefruit essence and certain medicines, unlike the fruit itself and its juice.
