Olfactive Description: Citrus, Peely, Bright, Tart

A gorgeous citrus scent, Pink Grapefruit essential oil is perky and uplifting, making it an ideal essential oil for welcoming reed diffusers and room sprays. Cold pressed from the peel of pink grapefruit, this scent stands on its own or works as a sassy top note in blends.

We’ve found that Pink Grapefruit essential oil performs beautifully in bath and body products like bar soap, lotion, and perfume. We also recommend it for use in ambience setting wax melts and tarts.

Candle Maker’s Notes:
We do not recommend this essential oil for use in candles. While it is safe for use in candles, we found that the burning flame transforms the fragrance into an unpleasant scent. Wax melts, however, produce the expected citrus scent.

Reed Diffuser Maker’s Notes:
In regards to reed diffusers, although IFRA reports a high maximum usage rate, we found the overall performance even at a 25% usage rate to be weak. If you'd like to use this essential oil, we recommend using it in a blend for best performance.

If you’re looking for a nice grapefruit scent for use in candles and reed diffusers, we recommend Sparkling Grapefruit.

Cold Process Soap Performance

We did not experience any acceleration or separation. It took longer than expected to reach a light trace. We continued stick blending to a medium trace, and the soap poured smoothly into the mold. After 24 hours, we observed the soap gelled ¾ of the way through the loaf. The oil has a natural dark orange color that caused the soap to discolor to a similar orange shade. The scent was a little mild but distinguishable. After 30 days, the bars remained an orange color, but the scent had faded significantly.

Smells amazing! Like so good!

Pink grapefruit is so so good! But CS Im confused. This EO is listed under recommended for diffusers but the safety data says not recommended for diffusers. Could you let me know if it is or is not safe for diffusers? Thanks in advance 🙏🏼
