Earth Conscious Ingredient Spotlight - Organic Grapefruit Essential Oil

Earth Conscious Ingredient Spotlight - Organic Grapefruit Essential Oil

Gorgeous Grapefruit

In this second of our ingredient spotlights, we focus on gorgeous Grapefruit Essential Oil. This fresh and sweet oil combined with lemon oil is used as a key fragrance in our Natural Deodorant Balm and Stick. It is such an uplifting oil!


We use essential oils to fragrance our natural deodorant because we love their skin-nourishing abilities as well as their mind and body balancing properties. Plus they often have specific anti-fungal and antibacterial properties too, perfect for a natural deodorant. 

You can read about Organic Lavender Oil here.

Our Grapefruit Essential Oil is extracted from the peel of grapefruits, grown in the USA under strict organic conditions. The oil is certified by the Soil Association as being organic, so we can feel confident that we have an ingredient of top quality, grown under strict criteria that we trust. 

Grapefruits themselves are a fairly new food item, having been introduced to the USA in the 1800s from Jamaica. It is thought that they were the result of a hybrid between a pummelo (a large exotic citrus fruit) and an orange. Citrus Paradisi (grapefruit trees) reach large sizes of 4-6 metres or more. The grapefruits grow in clusters of 6 and are usually picked by hand, from ladders. Once the essential oil is extracted from the peel of the grapefruit, it is a pale to golden yellow colour and like all essential oils, extremely precious and potent. 

Grapefruit Essential Oil has many benefits to us humans when applied to the skin or when the scent is inhaled. In skin products, it is often used in cellulite treatment as it encourages detoxification through the lymphatic system. Which we feel makes it perfect for a deodorant too as detoxification is extremely important in the armpit area! Grapefruit Essential Oil has antibacterial and antimicrobial properties, which makes this fresh scent amazing for our underarms which harvests a multitude of bacteria and microbes. 

As for our state of mind, the scent of Grapefruit essential oil is useful for reducing stress, increasing energy, and enhancing our mood. It is also used to treat headaches and hangovers and to combat fatigue. It is an excellent way to get you going in the morning, and amazing to think of all those benefits from applying your deodorant! Grapefruit Oil can also be useful to burn in an oil burner. Try it in the afternoon to give you a boost and relieve that afternoon slump! Or, simply sniff your Grapefruit Deodorant!

How it all began...

The Earth Conscious Natural Deodorant began with our cream paste formula packaged in a handy tin with a screw lid that travels well. We started with our Lavender scent and have increased the range to include other scents as well as unscented. The formula is proven to work thousands of times over and our Natural Deodorant has won several awards.

Applying deodorant with fingers may still be a relatively new and odd concept for some people and for others it already feels like second nature. In the interests of supporting convenience without compromising on our natural ingredients or plastic free packaging we have created the Earth Conscious Natural Deodorant Stick.

Earth Conscious Natural Deodorant Stick

Both the Tin and the Stick formulas are as effective as one another and are based around very similar ingredients. The difference is really in the application method.

The Earth Conscious Natural Deodorant stick is still made using 100% natural ingredients, organic wherever possible. We continue to use essential oils for subtle fragrance - still no synthetics. The cardboard tube keeps us firmly as a plastic free brand and our postal packaging remains plastic free too.

The Stick formula will still work in the same way as the tin formula with the natural anti-bacterial properties working to combat body odour all day long, you'll just apply it directly from the tube, its that simple.

Your Natural Deodorant stick is handmade and will look like a natural product should, imperfectly perfect. Made in small batches in order that we bring you the freshest products.

We expect our Natural Deodorant to be as popular as the rest of our range and will endeavour to offer new scents in the future.

We will of course continue to improve wherever we can. In the meantime, we continue to pride ourselves on remaining natural, effective, plastic free and keeping our prices affordable and accessible to all. The tins remain at £5-£6 and will last on average 3 months often a lot longer. The Stick is priced at £8 and we expect it to last on average on par with the tin.

As with the tins, 10p from the sale of every deodorant stick will go to the Marine Conservation Society, the UK charity for the protection of our seas, shores and wildlife. www.mcsuk.org
