Description

Petitgrain Essential Oil (Citrus aurantium) distilled leaf oil

Our Petitgrain Essential Oil has a fresh floral woody aroma. Steam distilled from the leaves and twigs of the same tree that also produces Neroli or Orange Blossom distilled Oil and bitter orange oil.

The name derives from the fact that the oil is extracted from the small green unripe oranges, “little grains”.

Petitgrain is one the ingredients in classic eau de cologne along with Bergamot.

Petitgrain has a pale yellow to amber colour and a thin consistency. It is ideal to use in your diffuser or for topical use.

Like many citrus derived oils, Petitgrain has an uplifting character.  It is also refreshing and calming, and is useful for anger, panic or other feeling of agitation. Use in a diffuser to lift the mood in any space.  Or add to a carrier to use topically as a delightful and uplifting body oil.

It is both balancing an uplifting in aromatherapy blends.

Paraguay is by far the largest producer of petitgrain essential oil making it the most commonly available. But also produced in Algeria, Egypt, France, Italy, Morocco, Spain and Tunisia.
