Petitgrain essential oil is well-known for its refreshing and uplifting aroma and is used in many skin and hair care products. It is harvested from the citrus auranium, otherwise known as the bitter orange tree, said to be the most prolific of all essential oil producing trees.
Civilisations from around the world have long since used various parts of the bitter orange tree for its powers of healing; from the bark and leaves to the juice and peel of the fruit, all common in traditional folk medicine.
Petitgrain essential oil has a top note fragrance and medium aroma and blends well with a number of other oils including; bergamot, cedarwood, clary sage, geranium, lavender, lime, jasmine, neroli, orange, palmarosa, rosemary, rosewood, sandalwood and ylang ylang. Its scent has been compared to orange blossoms carrying with it bitter, woody and herbaceous undertones.
