Pomelo Essential Oil
Our organically crafted Grapefruit Oil is cold pressed from the fresh rinds of the Citrus grandis (or Citrus maxima) fruits cultivated in the orchards that line the South African countryside. Our Pomelo Oil has a smooth, sweet-tart citrus aroma typical of the fruit with a slight floral undertone. Its familiar aroma is a real winner with children and is the perfect oil to put in a diffuser to refresh bed, bath or boudoir, and to keep airborne microbes at bay.

Grapefruit essential oil should not be taken internally without the supervision of a health professional. Internal use of grapefruit essential oil may have toxic effects.
In addition, some individuals may experience irritation or an allergic reaction when applying grapefruit essential oil to the skin. A skin patch test should be done before using any new essential oil. Essential oils are absorbed through the skin, so the topical application should not exceed safe use.
Before applying any type of essential oil to your skin, make sure to blend it with a carrier oil.
There's also some concern that applying grapefruit essential oil to the skin may increase your sensitivity to ultraviolet light emitted by the sun.
When using grapefruit essential oil on your skin, it's crucial to protect against ultraviolet light exposure by applying sunblock.
Pregnant women and children should consult their primary health care providers prior to using essential oils.
Keep in mind that alternative medicine should not be used as a substitute for standard care. Self-treating a condition and avoiding or delaying standard care may have serious consequences.
