Steam distillation of the twigs and leaves of the bitter orange tree produces this refreshing, floral and herbaceous essential oil. Petitgrain oil has a long history of usage in traditional health practices and is well known for its therapeutic benefits. Its fresh, citrus zestiness make it an ideal addition to your homemade natural cleaning preparations or add a few drops to herbal teas for a citrusy boost.
As a citrus oil, Freshskin Beauty’s organic petitgrain oil will blend well with its citrus soulmates like bergamot or lemongrass but its fresh, floral notes also combine perfectly with geranium or eucalyptus.
