Commonly known as the “forbidden fruit”, grapefruit has been around for quite some time. It was first documented back in 1750 by Rev. Griffith Hughes from Wales. The name that it carries can be attributed to the fact that it grows in clusters just like grapes. Known for its superior invigorating and energizing aroma, the oil helps improve your mood. It’s also renowned for its purifying and cleansing properties and it’s regularly used in skin care for its ability to stimulate clear and healthy-looking skin condition. It may also support healthy metabolism.
