Bamboo and White Grapefruit FragranceBamboo and White Grapefruit Fragrance Oil Spotlight

Bamboo is a grass-like plant with many subspecies. The varieties grown in the United States reach heights between 15 and 39 feet. Some of the largest timber bamboo can grow to be about 100 feet tall. Timber bamboo? That’s right- bamboo is used in building and can hold more weight than wood, brick, or concrete. It also rivals the strength of steel. Isn’t that the stuff pandas eat? They do! Bamboo comprises most of a panda’s diet- but they focus their attentions on the soft shoots, stems and leaves. Speaking of diets, grapefruits are super healthy and can even help your body metabolize fat. This fruit is actually a hybrid of the sweet orange and the pomelo. Like most citrus fruits, the grapefruit contains lots of Vitamin C and has a sweet to bitter taste- depending on the variety. They’re high in fiber and possess many other health benefits. Both grapefruit plants and bamboo are evergreens. When we hear this, we may tend to think Christmas trees, but I think it’s a good indication that this scent is always fresh!
