The scent of grapefruit oil is clean, fresh, bitter, and citrusy. This oil is classified as having a top-note scent with an odor intensity of about two out of five. Blending companions include citrus, lavender, geranium, neroli, jasmine, and carrot seed. For physical conditions, grapefruit oil is useful for oily skin problems, cellulite, lymphatic drainage, depression, and fatigue. Emotionally, this oil is uplifting and it is good for alleviating performance anxiety, self-critcism, guilt, anger, and frustration. Oils extracted by cold expression have a superior fragrance, but those produced by distillation have fewer of the photosensitizing coumarins, making them safer for use with sun exposure.

Unlike most other citrus essences, grapefruit oil is non-phototoxic. However, the oil has a very short shelf-life and must be used within six months of purchase. Once it begins to oxidise, it can cause skin irritation and sensitisation.
