Product Abstract: The grapefruit tree was originally from Asia but it is now grown and harvested in the United States, France, Brazil and Israel. The grapefruit tree itself is a large tree about 10 meters (30 feet) tall, with glossy leaves, white flowers and large, pale yellow fruits with pink flesh. The differences between the White and Pink Grapefruits are minor, but more Pink Grapefruit is produced because it is sweeter. The difference in cost is simply from supply and demand.
- In Chinese medicine, Grapefruit is cooling, decongesting, and beneficial for an overheated liver and sluggish lymphatic system.
- On psychological and emotional levels, grapefruit is noted to assist in cases of depression where one may tend to overindulge in food or chemicals to pacify their pain. The oil may clear the psychological 'heat' and congestion that result from self-criticism and blame, promoting a lightness of spirit. Grapefruit is refreshing, cheering, slightly euphoria-inducing and slightly energizing. Its sweet and familiar aroma can evoke warm feelings that melt sour dispositions.
