A variety of extraction methods are used to create essential oils. These methods include distillation, cold-press, and CO2 extraction. Grapefruit essential oil is extracted using the cold press method.
To get quality citrus oil without losing antioxidant and other beneficial properties, cold press extraction is required. Since the oil is taken from the peel, it is also vital that the source is organic and pure. Cold press extraction or scarification, is obtained by compressing the rinds of the citrus without the use of heat—thus the term “cold”.
We recommend storing your citrus oils in the refrigerator and using them within 12-18 months after opening.
