No 8 Grapefruit Peel


Also known as Citrus Racemosa and also called pomelo, this citrus tree of the Rutaceae family and its edible fruit originated in Barbados as a hybrid of shaddock (Citrus grandis). Before it came to be consumed as a fruit at home, it was grown and consumed in the islands of the West Indies.

As a source of vitamin C, the grapefruit is exceeded among common fruits only by the orange and lemon. Extracts from the grapefruit's peel contain antioxidant vitamin C, as well as hesperidin and naringin, which are also antioxidants. Hesperidin and naringin belong to a group of plant-based chemicals called flavonoids. These phytochemicals may fight cancer by inhibiting the spread of cancer cells.

Grapefruit peel has a robust citrus flavor with bitter and slightly sweet notes.
  • Bodily Effect: Grapefruit peel can curb depression and enhance memory and is known to be cancer-fighting.
  • Emotional Effect: mood balancing.
  • Spiritual Effect: Cleansing to the aura and mental body which helps release confusion and mental chatter.
The grapefruit was first described in 1750 as the forbidden fruit because it was seized upon by those searching for the identity of the original tree of good and evil in the Garden of Eden.
