✨Say What?! Saturday is here and we are talking about what was once called “the forbidden fruit”.✨
The grapefruit is a hybrid fruit, created by crossing an orange with a pomelo. The name was created by a Jamaican farmer when they noticed the fruit was growing in clusters, very similar to…you got it….grapes!🍇
The trees have an incubation period of 3-7 years before they start to grow fruit. When the time comes one tree can yield up to 700kg of fruit per tree and one cluster can grow as many as 25 grapefruits.😲
When considering what this fruit is good for, hydration may not be something that comes to mind first. However, one grapefruit contains a whopping 92% water!💦
Another very cool use for grapefruit is their nutrient packed peel. Essential oil is extracted from the glands in the peel in a process called cold-pressing.
Pink Grapefruit essential oil is sweet, citrusy and uplifting. It contains bacteria fighting properties which can help with acne. As well it’s rich in antioxidants like vitamin C and vitamin A and promotes collagen production for healthier, smoother looking skin.
