Product Abstract: The grapefruit tree was originally from Asia but it is now grown and harvested in the United States, France, Brazil and Israel. The grapefruit tree itself is a large tree about 10 meters (30 feet) tall, with glossy leaves, white flowers and large, pale yellow fruits with pink flesh. The differences between the White and Pink Grapefruits are minor, but more Pink Grapefruit is produced because it is sweeter. The difference in cost is simply from supply and demand.
Cautions: This essential oil may contain phototoxic properties and it is suggested to avoid exposure to the sun after application to the skin. Dilute well before use; for external use only. May cause skin irritation in some individuals; a skin test is recommended prior to use. Contact with eyes should be avoided.
Storage: It is recommended that oils packaged in metal containers (for safe shipping) be transferred into dark glass containers to maintain freshness and attain maximum shelf life.

Rating: This smells exactly like the grapefruit... mix it with eucalyptus in a diffuser for a fresh , invigorating scent. Wish it would stick more in CP but have to say the scent fades too fast.

Rating: Beautiful EO. Strong grapefruit scent without being over-powering. Bright, cheerful. Makes you want to eat a grapefruit!

Rating: How many times have I ordered this?
I L O V E this EO.
I use it in household cleaning products, in combination with Bergamot and Orange as a body spray, and uplifting diffuser blend in my car on the way to work to wake me up. Then it keeps my mind popping all day with alert and inspirational ideas all day long.
The Pink grapefruit is cleaning smelling, uplifting, has some sweet undertones, if you think it has disappeared on you (scent wise), it's just that your nose has gotten used to the oil quickly. It lasts for a long time especially when used to wash the floor (only 5-10 drops in the bucket).
Also works well with Christmas type scents such as pine, fir, or other citrus EOs. Can I give it 6 Stars?

Rating: This scent smells so good if you close your eyes you'd swear you're in an orchard. Refreshing, light & yummy fragrance!

Rating: My review is on my personal feelings for the product -- not the actual quality.
I find it weak and it kind of just disappears, even using a lot of it I never notice a real grapefruit smell and that was disappointing, since I was hoping for something fresh and grapefruity. I will try the white, to see if that has a stronger and more obvious grapefruit scent.
Rating: Grapefruit Pink EO essential oil is an excellent diuretic and lymphatic stimulant, love this oil:) I experienced that the effects can be intensified when it's mixed with patchouli essential oil. It works every time relieving symptoms of depression by simply using few drops to your nebulizer or diffuser. Thank you again ND...
Rating: Smells like you cut into a fresh pink grapefruit... an amazing quality oil and a must have year round.

By:Tiffany, Brantford, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 24-Aug-2011
Rating: Very invigorating EO, it is great and close to the scent of a true pink grapefruit scent. Having this EO in my blends within my facial oil mixtures helped in balancing the Ph in my products. Excellent product, will always be a staple in my EO profile.

Rating: A lovely invigorating scent! I've used it in some massage oil for my Nana's edema and it seemed to help her. I also used it on my wool dryer balls which give my laundry a nice fresh scent. I'm also using it in some anti-cellulite massage oil but am still waiting for results!

Rating: i have ordered this one twice. the first time I tried the 15 ml and then put in another order for the 100ml. it is so great for adding to my natural cleaners! its uplifting to diffuse with oils like peppermint and i find it really cleans well and leaves surfaces shiny when mixed with oils like lemon. has an uplifting, slightly sweet scent, very fresh smelling too!

Rating: Love this essential oil! Much, much sweeter than I thought it would be.
By:Kari, St. Catharines, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 18-Nov-2015
Rating: This is an amazing, bright, uplifting fragrance which is nice as a standalone as well as blends well with many other choices! It is authentic pink grapefruit, sweet, citrusy, pungent and punchy but not sour or sharp at all. Will be buying in larger quantity and using in my uplifting and stress less blends!
By:Stephanie, Lethbridge, Alberta Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 25-Sep-2015

Rating: A sweet grapefruit aroma, almost edible, I just didn't find that it carried through lotions and scrubs as I had hoped
By:Aimee, Fort Mcmurray, Alberta Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 14-May-2014
Rating: I LOVE Pink Grapefruit EO!! It has such a fresh clean smell, and it is so delightful in the diffuser, especially in the winter. Works great as part of my homemade cleaning supplies and gives off a lovely smell that even Hubs likes! Will be buying again and again

Rating: Love this! Sweet and gentle, yet clean and fresh. Would use it in everything if I could! Really balances out stronger scents and seems to blend well with everything. Love it! Buying the big bottles :)
By:Ancel, Cookstown, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 26-Dec-2013
Rating: LOVE this refreshing EO! Smells wonderful! Works really well with orange or other citrus EOs in body butter, scrubs, hand cream and soaps!
Rating: What would I do without this beautiful Oil ? It is always consistent in it price, quality, and amazing benefits. I created an Ancient Cream Cleanser with the Pink Grapefruit EO, some of which actually got eaten by my friend's 3 yr. old. She loved the fragrance of it so much, her fingers couldn't resist digging in her mother's jar to eat it. MMMm....
And that is why EVERYTHING I create must be toxic, tar, petroleum, synthetic and chemical -free!
By:J.alexandra, Airdrie, Alberta Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 20-Jun-2006
Rating: This is a favourite amongst my younger massage therapy clients. It has a pleasant, uplifting effect. I have added it to liquid hand soaps and simply adore it. A must for any citrus blend.
By:Nancy, St.catharines, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 26-Mar-2007
Rating: This is easily one of my favorite essential oils. The clean, crisp, sweet scent of this Grapefruit eo is unbeatable. As with any citrus oil you have to use more of it in Cold Process soaps to get it to stay.
By:Jackie, Golden, British Columbia Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 03-May-2013
Rating: Used this in M&P soap. It smells divine - out of the bottle and in the soap. It's a nice, true, sweet/tart, grapefruit scent. Don't know yet about staying power, but smells amazing so far!
By:A., Dawson Creek, British Columbia Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 20-Jul-2013
Rating: Fresh, citrus, good-enough-to eat scent. Beautiful top note in any diffuser mixture.
By:Pauline, Calgary, Alberta Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 25-Apr-2011
Rating: I absolutely love this scent; however when I used it in my CP soap the scent seemed to fade.
I have since used it in with water and a little soap for cleaning floors.

By:Megan, Calgary, Alberta Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 08-Aug-2012
Rating: Would like to have the Organic version of this oil ...
Rating: Very clean and fresh citrus smell that is not too heady or strong. I use it in an acne face wash with a touch of basil and it smells great. It also makes a very crisp room spray. Seems to mix well with just about any other EO I've combined it with so it's a very easy product to work with and find uses for.
By:Cindy, Lethbridge, Alberta
Date: Loyal Customer Since: 20-Sep-2012
Rating: nice fresh aroma, but not as strong as other brands of essential oils I have had in the past. I had to use more to get the effect I wanted.
The price is really good.
By:Meghan, Cochrane, Alberta
Date: Loyal Customer Since: 24-Apr-2013
Rating: Wonderful fresh smelling oil. Have used it in CP soap, M&P soap, lotion bars and bath oil. Great price. Will buy larger bottle next time.
By:Jane, North Saanich, British Columbia
Date: Loyal Customer Since: 31-Oct-2012
Rating: I have a rather large stockpile of essential oils and if I had to choose only one, to enjoy for the rest of my life, it would be pink grapefruit. I can't praise this EO enough; it is a delightful, uplifting scent that is clean without any medicinal traces. I use it with everything from cedarwood to black pepper; it enhances every single oil that I use and stands on its own beautifully. My absolute favourite.
By:Adrianne, Burnaby, British Columbia
Date: Loyal Customer Since: 08-Mar-2012
Rating: Very fresh, citrus-y, clean scent! Love it!
Rating: What a fresh scent this is!! I was expecting greatness from ND's EO, but in fact, this EO should be classified as 'excellent'!
I added it to the Orange/Ginger FO for a delicious scent...my new home scent!
By:Julie, Greenfield Park, Quebec Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 29-Mar-2011
Rating: I usually blend this with Bergamot in CP soap but have been adding it to just about everything lately. The scent is such a pick me up and just makes the whole house smell fresh and clean. It smells like a just peeled grapefruit and makes my mouth pucker every time i crack the bottle. Great scent and is fantastic blended with other citrus oils.
By:Laura, Vancouver, British Columbia
Date: Loyal Customer Since: 27-Oct-2009
Rating: Ohhhhhhhhhh!!! This scent is fresh, clean and zesty!!! Makes you feel good. The room smells fabulous. I'll definitely buy more of this.
By:Margie, Brockville, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 13-Sep-2011
Rating: I use this in my cleanser along with lemongrass, peppermint, and tea tree oil...it is now my best seller!
By:Erica, Maple, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 25-Jun-2011
Rating: I love anything grapefruit! This is a great EO but I wish the scent was a bit stronger. I guess that can't really be helped with an EO? Don't want to use too much as citrus EO's do cause photosensitivity. Still a very nice light scent to CP soap. The lip balm is also 2-die-4!!
By:Farkhanda, Oakville, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 19-Feb-2010

By:Cherie, Toronto, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 07-Nov-2008
Rating: This is a really refreshing scent. It's just a little sweet, not too bitter and also has a beautiful pink grapefruit colour. I use it in soap with just a little paprika to boost the colour. The price is reasonable. This product is very popular with my customers.
