Grapefruit Essential Oil, or citrus grandis peel oil contains purifying and antioxidant properties. It is known for its fragrance which helps calm and reduce stress.

  • Description
  • Polarity

The origin of the grapefruit is not known for sure. It was first described in 1750 by Griffith Hughes, who called it the “forbidden fruit” of Barbados. In 1814, John Lunan (“Hortus Jamaicensis”) mentioned the grapefruit as a variety of lemon of a different size with a thin, tough and soft skin that is pale yellow in colour.

The main components of grapefruit are some volatile essences, carbohydrates, mineral salts, pectins and vitamins A, B and C.

Its fragrance is known to help calm stress. Atmospheric antiseptic.

Cosmetically, Grapefruit Essential Oil has antioxidant, moisturising, and purifying properties and stimulates collagen synthesis. It also has anti-ageing properties and helps protect against oxidation processes of the skin. It is perfect for balancing out oily skin. It also helps combat cellulite.


Etymologically it means “side of the mountain that provides shade”. The Yin energy is expansive, slow and centrifugal. It is the energy that is connected to coldness, water, the moon, femininity, relaxation, the inner balance, dispersion, intuition and creativity. A Yin body tends toward being thin and does not retain fat cells (adipocytes), but rather it eliminates them.

People who tend to have Yin characteristics display spiritual tendencies; they are creative, artistic, imaginative, understanding and hyper-sensitive.

Well-being is defined as a balance between Yin and Yang. An imbalance is the result of a deficit or excess of Yin energy or Yang energy. Ideally, we want to ensure that our body adapts to the changing conditions, maintaining the balance between these two opposite and complementary energies.

Therefore, Alqvimia products with a more Yang polarity or energy facet are recommended for excess Yin energy imbalances.

Pay attention to the following symbols which you will find on our packaging:
