Red Grapefruit essential oil has a beautiful red-orange color with a great fruity smell that is cheery and uplifting. This essential oil is cold-pressed from the peel and has a shelf-life of only 6 months. Refrigerating can extend the shelf life. When it becomes pine-like in its smell, do not apply it to the skin. It can however, still be used in homemade cleaners, as grapefruit oil is a wonderful degreaser.
