Grapefruit, Organic: USA (Citrus paradise – Pressed Peel)
Grapefruit is a hybrid of a pummelo (Citrus grandis) and the sweet orange (Citrus sinensis). It was first discovered in Barbados in the 1700’s. Around the1820’s, Grapefruits were introduced to Florida, which now produces one third of the world’s supply. Researchers discovered that eating grapefruits may lower the risk of kidney stones, diabetes, high blood pressure, hepatitis virus, prostate cancer, colon cancer, LDL cholesterol, and suppress the growth cancer cell and tumors. All the citrus oils have a fat dissolving characteristic and can be used for reducing cellulite by increasing the metabolism of the brown fat cells. Because of the sweet citrusy scent, grapefruit has been used for incense, candles, soaps, deodorizers, skin products, cosmetics, lotions, and bath oils.
