Petitgrain Pure Essential Oil 10ml
Petitgrain comes from the sweet orange tree but, whilst Sweet Orange essential oil is cold-pressed from the fruit peel, Petitgrain is extracted by steam distillation from the twigs and leaves of the sweet orange tree. So, whilst it comes from the same plant, it has a very different aroma - less sweet, and more 'green'. It's quite similar to Neroli, which comes from sweet orange blossom, but without the hefty price tag!
Our petitgrain oil is produced in France by steam distillation.
From a fragrance perspective, it's refereshing, but without the stimulating effects of peppermint or rosemary, calming and light. It's antiseptic, antispasmodic and ideal for use in deodorants and other odour-neutralising applications. It blends well with bergamot, geranium, lavender, palmarosa, rosewood, and sandalwood.
Petitgrain is safe for children and is also safe for use during pregnancy after the first trimester.
