Get to Know
A hybrid of the pomelo (
Citrus maxima) and the sweet orange (
Citrus sinensis), grapefruit is more than just a part of
your breakfast! The fruit likely originated from Jamaica and was
first popularized for consumption in the West Indies before
spreading to America and throughout citrus-growing areas. It’s now
produced in locations throughout the world, including the United
States, South Africa, Brazil, and Israel. The grapefruit tree can
grow to be quite large, reaching up to 20 feet tall. It has dense
foliage, and the grape-like clusters of the fruit are the source of
the plant’s name.
ADDITIONAL NAMES:When it was discovered, grapefruit was
called the “forbidden fruit.”
REGIONS FOUND:South Africa, California, Mexico
PLANT PART USED:Rind
EXTRACTION METHOD:Cold pressed
YL REGION:Most Young Living Grapefruit essential oil comes

Q: How many grapefruits does it take to make one 15-ml
A: Each grapefruit produces a different
amount of essential oil, so it is difficult to say how many are
needed to produce each bottle of oil.
Q: Do Young Living’s citrus oils oxidize and expire quickly?
A: Young Living’s 100% pure essential oils do
not expire and will maintain their integrity, efficacy, and

properly in a dark-glass bottle, upright, and tightly sealed; away
from UV light; and in cool temperatures.
Q: Are Young Living citrus essential oils from ripened
A: The citrus fruits are fully ripened before
