  • Parents and group leaders, here comes a little bit of peace for your teenagers! Grapefruit is emotionally stress-relieving and brings realism.
  • Look how beautiful this piece of cake is...! 
    Strolling in the street, you come across a bakery and start drooling over a generous piece of cake... How can you possibly resist?
    There is no efficient appetite-suppressant oil. But smelling grapefruit can help you to resist, feel good about it and go away (just like Vanilla).
    After all, it only takes a few more seconds to do so...
  • Fancy discovering new coffee flavours? 
    Enjoy and let your guests have fun with you! 
    With an Italian coffee maker, pour water and coffee as usually, and add one drop of grapefruit essential oil. Screw the lid on and leave it to heat. Reveal your trick before serving and see how surprised people can be! 

    Just like all citrus fruits, if the fruit is full of vitamins, the oil is your kitchen's friend!
This tree belongs to the family of Rutaceae. It is a kind of citrus tree with a few thorns on the branches like all its brothers and sisters.
According to sources, it is a hybrid between pomelo and orange. According to other sources, Pomelo is a hybrid between the Grapefruit and Orange. But according to other sources again, the orange is a hybrid between the Grapefruit and Mandarin. On top of it, names in different languages change between Pomelo, Grapefruit. Anyways, it is a tree that bears fruits and that exists. The rest is a story of genetics that time may have already erased the footprints of.
This is an average-sized tree. It also looks frail: narrow trunk and branches and extremely thin twigs. So much so that, frankly, strolling through an orchard of grapefruit is not very reassuring.
Think about it! You know the size of the fruit right? Imagine it hanging down a branch, which bends under its weight three feet above your fragile head. Imagine that you walk by. Without a helmet. That makes you think right ?
Especially if a cool breeze makes our sweet little trees sway and dance with their numerous heavy fruits. Indeed, here is the grapefruit-ing on the cake: the name "grapefruit" implies that they grow in clusters, just like grapes.
So, do miracles exist? Yes. And the fact that grapefruits remain clinging to the branches of their trees is probably one of the clearest indications of that.
