What is Pink Grapefruit Peel Oil?

Commonly used in aromatherapy, pink grapefruit peel oil is extracted by cold-pressing the rind of the pink grapefruit. Although the fruit is quite bitter, the scent of the peel has a sweet and pleasantly uplifting citrus aroma which is why it is popular in both the cosmetic and pharmaceutical industries as a flavoring agent. Beyond its aroma, however, pink grapefruit oil offers many health benefits. 

Benefits of Pink Grapefruit Peel Oil

  • Supports injury healing
    Pink grapefruit peel oil has been found to be highly antioxidant and anti-inflammatory. Studies show it can help fight harmful inflammation in the body, specifically around injured or damaged areas.

  • Increases blood flow
    Pink grapefruit peel oil is composed of between 80-90% limonene – a compound that has been proven to expand blood vessels and stimulate blood flow. When applied topically, it can enhance healing and pain relief in that area.

  • Relieves stress and anxiety
    Citrus oils are well-known for their mood-brightening abilities, and pink grapefruit peel oil is no different. Some studies suggest that smelling this oil may help reduce feelings of stress and anxiety and promote better, more balanced moods.

  • Helps suppress appetite
    Along with supporting tissue healing, pink grapefruit peel oil may help keep our waistlines in check. This oil has an abundance of a compound called D-Limonene, which is known as an appetite suppressant.

What is Pink Grapefruit Peel Oil Used For?

Pink grapefruit peel oil has been used for centuries for a range of medicinal and wellness applications. It is a well-known weight-loss aid and is often used as an ingredient in cosmetic or wellness products because of its distinctive, sweet citrus aroma.

We include pink grapefruit peel in our Unstoppable Sports Recovery Gel because it is a powerful natural way to reduce swelling and inflammation around injuries and aid recovery by stimulating blood flow when applied to an area that has been overworked or is causing pain. Its uplifting scent can also ease stress, tension, and competition anxiety.
