It is thought that Grapefruit essential oil is not phototoxic, unlike most of the other citrus oils; although Grapefruit oil does contain furocoumarins, which are responsible for phototoxic effects, it also contains other chemical components which appear to neutralize the potential phototoxicity. Therefore, it is a good alternative oil to use in place of other similar citrus oils, as it shares the same properties as other citrus oils.

Grapefruit is known as a 'happy' oil due to its uplifting qualities and is liked by children for this reason; it is said to improve concentration and self-confidence. It is used in aromatherapy spa treatments to improve lymphatic drainage and to ease muscle stiffness, by dispersing lactic acids.

Grapefruit is also used as a fragrance component in the perfumery industry, in soaps, cosmetics and detergents; it is used in both the food and drinks industry too. Grapefruit is high in vitamin C and is cultivated in southern Europe and Israel for the extraction of its juice and the canning of its fruit.
