How to DIY Grapefruit Vitamin C Essential Oil

There are two methods for making DIY grapefruit essential oil, one of which requires the use of a crockpot and the other which you can do with a simple jar. You can choose whichever method you have the supplies for or try them both and see which results you prefer. For both methods, you’ll start by peeling the rind from several thoroughly cleaned grapefruits.

Crockpot DIY Grapefruit Essential Oil

  1. Use a spoon to scrape as much of the white pith from the rinds as you can. Let the rinds rest until dry.
  2. Place the rinds in a small crockpot and add almond oil until the rinds are covered. Turn on low for around 8 hours.
  3. Line a bowl with a few layers of clean, cheesecloth. Pour your mixture into the bowl.
  4. Gather the cloth together and carefully squeeze until as much oil is removed as possible.
  5. Store the oil in a dark-colored, airtight container.

Jar DIY Grapefruit Essential Oil

  1. Set out your rinds and allow them to dry for several days.
  2. Add the rinds to a jar, filling it about halfway.
  3. Fill the remaining space with your choice of oil. Shake well.
  4. Let your mixture warm in the sun for about a week, shaking at least twice daily, for up to two weeks.
  5. Strain the mixture to remove the rinds. Store in a dark-colored, airtight container.

Using Your Grapefruit Vitamin C Essential Oil

Keep in mind that you should not use your grapefruit oil on your skin without carefully checking it first. Dab a small amount onto your skin and let rest for at least a few hours. If you feel any discomfort whatsoever, set the oil aside for other uses than skincare. Only use on the skin in small amounts, and never near the eyes.
