The grapefruit comes from a tree with dark green leaves and white flowers. The origin of the tree is unknown but thought to be related to the pomelo which was first brought to Spain from Asia by Arab traders in the 12th century. It traveled from there to the West Indies in the 18th century and this led to the cultivation of the grapefruit in the New World.
White Grapefruit Essential Oil derives from cold expression of the fresh peel from the fruit. It is used in aromatherapy as well as a fragrance in perfumes and cosmetics and a flavor additive.
