Petitgrain essential oil has been widely embraced as an effective natural stress remedy. But like many other essential oils, the benefits of Petitgrain are spread across a variety of health and lifestyle aspects. In addition to treatment for depression and insomnia, Petitgrain supports a strong immune system and healthy skin. Its woody aroma also makes it a regular ingredient in many brands of air fresheners and perfumes. Petitgrain has been particularly known for its olfactive characteristics, and is extensively used in the making of high-quality perfumes; including the French classic ‘Eau-de-Cologne.’
Petitgrain is one of three essential oils native to the orange tree (botanical name- Citrus Aurantium), the other two being Neroli and Bitter Orange. It is steam-distilled from the leaves and young twigs of the tree, whereas Neroli is extracted from the flowers, and Bitter Orange is typically cold pressed from the tough outer layers of the fruits.
Odor and Appearance : Petitgrain oil is mostly clear, with a hint of yellow. Its scent can be easily distinguished from its two sibling oils, Neroli and Bitter Orange.
