Citrus paradisi Macfayden, fam. Rutaceae
Our Ruby Grapefruit essential oil has a tangy, citrus-sweet, refreshing aroma. It has stimulating, uplifting, astringent, and toning properties, though it should be noted that for skin care, it is mildly photo sensitive. Rich in the powerful antioxidant d-limonene, it is a good oil for the skin and is most notably used for the treatment and reduction of cellulite. Ruby Grapefruit helps quicken sluggish circulation, and serves as an essential oil antidepressant for the mind. As with all citrus oils, keep refrigerated to extend shelf life.
