Petitgrain Essential Oil is made by steam distilling fresh leaves and twigs of the Bitter Orange tree Citrus aurantium.
This is the same tree that Neroli Oil comes from, but Neroli Oil is made from steam distillation of the flowers/blossoms.
The oil was previously extracted from green and young oranges the size of peas, hence the name Petitgrain.
Petitgrain has many of the benefits and the same uses as Neroli Essential oil.
This oil has a woodsy, fresh scent with a hint of floral. This wonderful aroma is a favourite for natural perfumery.
When added to body or room spray, the delightful scent of Petitgrain gives off a wonderful aroma, and creates an environment that is uplifting and energizing.

Gentle and effective for skin care, it can help with blemishes and oily skin.
