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.

Rating: The delicate scent of this pink grapefruit is the major attraction for me. I often recommend it to clients who want a fresh, clean scent to wear that does not overwhelm other people situated near them. I feel the same pleasure I experience when I inhale natural ozone after a rain shower. This oil blends delightfully with nutmeg in a diffuser. Guests in my home often inquire about the intriguing aroma of these two oils!

Rating: I was somewhat disappointed with this EO. The aroma was faint and lacked the pungency and brightness of other grapefruit Who's I have used from other vendors.

Rating: I love this essential oil! It smells so nice! Great for body butters, as it holds a smell for a while.

Rating: I love the way this smells! So nice, like real grapefruit.
Rating: Love this pink grapefruit as much as I love the white grapefruit. Smells very true to freshly cut grapefruit. It doesn't hold in cp soap for very long on it's own so you will want to anchor it, other than that it won't give you any type of grief when soaping. Smells amazing in scrubs and blended with other eo's for lotion!
By:Lisa, Pellston, Michigan Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 03-May-2008
Rating: I bought the little 1/2 oz bottle and could have kicked myself for not getting the 3.3 oz. This essential oil has a wonderful scent.... It actually smells like I am cutting into a grapefruit. I enjoy using it in my sugar body scrubs and in my homemade body wash. You won't regret purchasing this.
By:Nicole, Mobile, Alabama Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 17-Feb-2013
Rating: I had ordered grapefruit essential oil before from another supplier for a much higher price, but this oil's quality is just as good and fresh. Great for relaxation when combined with lavender (any kind).
By:Alina, Budd Lake, New Jersey Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 06-May-2013
Rating: This smells just like freshly cut grapefruit!
Rating: Love this one! It does take a lot to make it REALLY stand out, but I just buy the larger quantity to make it worth it! It is AWESOME in a blend with Orange & Lemon! Works wonders on cellulite too!!
By:Melissa, Concrete, Washington Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 20-Sep-2011
Rating: I love the scent, but it's so light that you have to use a ton of oil or the scent just disappears. It's nice mixed with other citrus, but still very weak. I'm going to try the white grapefruit for comparison.
By:Cynthia, Oneida, Kentucky Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 05-Oct-2012
Rating: YUMMY! This EO is a fave! Out of the citrus family on ND I've used Lemon (sicily) Lemon 5 fold, Key lime, Tangerine, Mandarin, Blood Orange and now this. It is my favorite! When blended with grass notes it brings in a candy like smell. FUN. Uplifting, simply yummy. Thanks ND! Love the price too!!!!
By:Jaipreet, Livermore, California Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Oct-2011
Rating: Been reading these comments for ideas and suggestions and suddenly realized that it's my duty to do my part as well. LOVE this grapefruit oil. It really does lift the spirit, not like alcohol, which is a heavy high, just in a light airy way, grapefruity but more idyllic.
I mixed this in your shampoo with rosemary and lavender and gave a bottle to my best friend. Every time I call her she tells me how heavenly this shampoo is (is she hinting for more). This is a great oil for mixing and it's reasonable price means you can use it as a base scent for so many things.

By:Lisa, Hettinger, North Dakota

Rating: This is a lovely citrus scent that is very refreshing. I used it in a CP soap with ground grapefruit peel and orris root powder to anchor the scent, and it turned out fantastic. Thanks NDA for the vast selection of reasonably priced EOs.!
By:Stacey, Paris, Illinois Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 20-Nov-2011
Rating: Very nice refreshing scent of grapefruit, light and has a nice orange-y tint to it. Love mixing it with lemon and orange...very uplifting scent to brighten your day!
By:Elvira, Oakville, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005
Rating: I like the smell of this essential oil so much! It's just strong enough and has a cute orange color.
By:Isabelle, St-Bruno-De-Montarville, Quebec Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005
Rating: I purchased 6.6 lb pink grapefruit last January. Usually I buy a small size but I go through a lot so this time I bought a bigger size. I transferred to a small glass bottle and kept in dark and cool space as usual but I notice color started to change and scent seems getting less and less. I checked original bottle and hardly any scent left. Some essential oil hold scent long time but now I know that's not the case with pink grapefruit. If you don't use soon it's safe to buy a small size.

By:Kelly, North Babylon, New York Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 21-Jan-2012
Rating: Smells zesty and fresh. Very uplifting and versatile. Blends well with other energetic EOs such as peppermint and sweet orange.
By:Jeannie, Kamloops, British Columbia Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005
Rating: Smells exactly like grapefruit peels, one of my favorite smells. It's sweet with a bit of zesty tang---very fresh and uplifting. It's a great oil for the skin, too; can stimulate and help with circulation in the skin and can, therefore, aid in improving cellulite. Highly recommended!! Get the big bottle.
By:Steven, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 11-Dec-2011
Rating: Love this oil! Light, fresh. Easy to use! Loved by all those with a citrus loving bone!!

By:Camille, Morin-Heights, Quebec Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005
Rating: I've been using this oil in hair products and the aroma it leaves is just so soothing and pleasant.
By:Marie, Bronx, New York Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 26-Jun-2009
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: 09-Nov-2005
Rating: Wow! I did NOT think I'd really be into grapefruit, but I ran out of this one faster than any of my other EOs, even though the smallest size it came in when I ordered it was still bigger than practically any other EO bottle I ordered. I've found that almost everyone LOVES the smell of grapefruit, even people who are incredibly picky about fragrance. In fact, on a video I was watching about attracting the opposite sex, I saw that men find the grapefruit scent particularly enticing. Grapefruit is not so sweet, like orange for example, that it couldn't be used in men's fragrances as well. But it smells great on its own or in a mixture. The scent isn't too strong, so I find that it doesn't need to be diluted.
By:Lauretta, San Diego, California Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 19-Jun-2010
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: 09-Nov-2005
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 Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005
Rating: Smells like grapefruit, like it should! I used it in pink grapefruit lip balm which I colored with alkanet root and am quite pleased with. Note that the oil does evaporate quickly, especially in something warm like lip balm.
By:Andrea, Katy, Texas Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 14-Mar-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: 09-Nov-2005
Rating: I use this in my cleanser along with lemongrass, peppermint, and tea tree oil...it is now my best seller!

Rating: Unmistakable grapefruit fragrance. I love this in a diffuser for a fresh, energizing pick me up. Mixed with orange 5-fold EO and tangerine EO for an air freshener for my husband's car. He loves it for his commute to work.
By:Christina, Woodbridge, New Jersey Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 14-May-2010

Rating: Update.... scent holds up good in cp soaps. I did wrap them in cello bags with holes punched in them to allow them to cure but not be exposed to complete air. A new favorite in our products.
By:Derek, Portsmouth, New Hampshire Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 01-Jul-2011
Rating: True pink grapefruit scent. Cant wait to use it in my products and blends.
By:Derek, Portsmouth, New Hampshire Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 01-Jul-2011
Rating: This is one of my favorite EO's (I have about 3 favorites that I each love the same). I use it solely in cold process soap, and as long as I box them up after they cure, it holds very well. This is one of my top requested soap products from friends and family.
By:Jolene, Biloxi, Mississippi Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 29-Jan-2011
Rating: This grafefruit essential oil would receive a 5* rating if it weren't for the metal bottle (probably aluminum) which gives it a slightly metallic aluminum-like odor. I prefer that it were in a glass bottle because I fear that the essential oils corrode the metal and contaminate the oil, and hence is why it has the metallic odor. I will pour the oil into a large glass bottle, or several smaller bottles ASAP, and not use it on my skin.
Although the cap appeared to be on tightly, and the seal apparently unbroken, the bottle leaked in the box. I'm not sure how high the fill level was initially, but it is now more than 3 inches below the top of the bottle.
Rating: I love this! I use it in almost everything I make. It smells so fresh I want to eat it.
By:My Little Secret, Nova Scotia, Nova Scotia Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005

By:Cherie, Toronto, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005
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.
By:Kathy, Haliburton, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005
Rating: Really fresh and vibrant in the kitchen for a floor cleaner or a counter spray, or for an energizing toner spray for your face. Definitely pink, it's a little sweet -right on the nose for a pink (not white) grapefruit. Very versatile, I'm going through it quickly!

Rating: This is a wonderful smelling EO, we just created our Super Shea Bar and mixed Ylang Ylang and Pink Grapefuit EO together. I was like a kid in the candy store, I could not wait for the soap to come out the mold the next morning. Fresh, uplifting, incredible, fresh, tangy, etc.
You get the idea! Another absolutely incredible item from New Directions Aromatics.

Rating: Grapefruit Pink is a nice light scent that can stand alone or be mixed readily with something else. I bought this as a suggestion from someone, and I am very glad that I decided to purchase this. The reviews that I have read on this product are very accurate to the item itself. It is a wonderful scent, and I am anxious to make something out of it.

By:Marilyn, Newmarket, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005
Rating: Typically wonderful citrus odor. VERY interesting when blended with a little galbanum or fennel, and lovely when it comes to caring for troubled skins, as grapefruit is not photo-toxic like most other citrus oils.
