A fresh, woody, slightly floral aroma that offers a tonic effect for calming and uplifting the mind, whilst relaxing and revitalising the body.

Petitgrain essential oil is derived by steam distillation from the fresh leaves and green twigs of the bitter orange tree (Citrus aurantium).  Historically, in central and south America, and Mexico, decoctions of the leaves were used medicinally. Paraguay is by far the largest producer of petitgrain essential oil. 

A tonic oil known for its calming, uplifting and centring effect, it has an affinity for soothing joints, muscles and troublesome skin, and has a tonic effect on dry skin and dull, lifeless hair. Petitgrain’s toning action is effective for revitalising and energising body and mind, and can be used effectively in massage to stimulate circulation and motivate a reduction in cellulite. Strengthening, calming and uplifting, helping to dispel panic and stress by strengthening the body whilst bringing about deep relaxation.
