Organic Petitgrain essential oil is derived from the bitter orange tree, which has a long history of use in traditional health practices. Historically, petitgrain essential oil has been used for cleansing purposes. Petitgrain is widely used in the perfume industry, giving body sprays, perfumes, lotions and colognes a fresh, herbal note that is popular with women and men.
Petitgrain oil has a sweet, yet tart aroma with subtle floral and woody characteristics. It blends particularly well with citrus, floral and woody oils. The petit grain enhances feelings of joy and courage in the face of a challenge and helps promote hope and calm.
