Grapefruit 101

The basics: Pink Grapefruit is one of our favourite citrus oils—because it’s bright and refreshing without being too sweet. It blends beautifully with more woodsy scents, like Spruce or Cedarwood and, best of all, it’s actually has a place in your skincare routine. Grapefruit has balancing and astringent properties that are super gentle, so we love mixing it in with our current face products. Something as simple as adding a few drops to your current moisturizer can boost your morning routine. Beyond your beauty bag or bathroom counter, Grapefruit also works wonders in the kitchen.

How we use it:

  • Fridge Freshener – combine 10 drops Grapefruit with 10 drops Spruce in 1/2 cup of baking soda. Keep in a little mason jar in your fridge to ensure it’s always smelling fresh.
  • Face Oil – add 4 drops Grapefruit to 1 tbsp of jojoba oil for a brightening and completely natural face oil that will create a fresh glow.
  • Gentle Spot Treatment – a super simple DIY that takes advantage of grapefruit’s natural astringent properties.

Blends well with: Bergamot, Lemon, and Spruce.
