While the color pink sparks joy and bright energy, Pink Grapefruit Essential Oil does well to invoke the same experience for those who use it! You can’t miss the tangy fragrance that truly resembles the tart aroma of a freshly picked pink grapefruit.  Continue reading to discover all of the wonderful benefits this essential oil has to offer…

The best Quality Pink Grapefruit Essential Oil is Cold Pressed from the Peel

Like all citrus essential oils, pink grapefruit essential is most potent and aromatically pleasing when it’s cold pressed from the rinds of fresh, ripe, juicy pink grapefruit. You probably noticed that when you peel a pink grapefruit, or any citrus fruit, a lovely aromatic mist gets released into the air. That aromatic mist is the essential oil of the fruit escaping from the rind’s delicate outer membrane.

With regard to pink grapefruit essential oil, we are looking for an aroma that’s identical to what you would expect from peeling a fresh, ripe, juicy pink grapefruit.

An identical aroma is exactly what we get when fresh, ripe, juicy pink grapefruit rinds are pressed without using any heat, and the oil is collected without any added ingredients or processes. When pink grapefruit is processed correctly, the essential oil’s aroma is identical to the aromatic mist that’s naturally expressed when you peel the fresh fruit. That’s because it’s the same essential oil that naturally lives in the rinds of citrus fruits, and it hasn’t been compromised by heat, adulterated with artificial fragrance, or contaminated with cheap fillers.

However, not all citrus essential oils sold today are created equal. Many of them have been extracted by steam distillation, which is the WRONG process to extract citrus oils. While steam distillation is great for many botanicals, the same does not go for citrus essential oils.

Citrus oils are susceptible to damage from heat, which reduces their healing properties and distorts their lovely aroma. Even worse, some products being sold as “pure citrus oils” contain artificial or natural fragrance that was added back into the oil in an attempt to recreate the fruit’s natural aroma.

Cold pressed essential oils are more expensive to produce, but it’s well worth the cost, because the chemical components of pink grapefruit essential oil are easily altered by heat. Our pink grapefruit essential oil, and ALL our citrus essential oils are cold pressed and extracted from the rinds of fresh, ripe, juicy citrus fruits. 

So, as usual, you can rest assured that when you’re shopping with Miracle Botanicals, you’re always getting the most potent, medicinal, and pure essential oils available anywhere.
