Petitgrain Product Sheet

Petitgrain Essential Oil originated from Paraguay and is extracted using steam distillation from the leaves and twigs of the Seville bitter orange tree. This oil has a woodsy, fresh scent with a hint of floral. This wonderful aroma is a favorite for natural perfumery, comforting the mind when emotions are running wild, and is gentle and effective for skin care. When added to body or room spray, the delightful scent of Petitgrain can give the atmosphere not only a wonderful aroma, but creates an environment that is uplifting and energizing.

During times of great emotional upheaval, Petitgrain is a go to choice to help balance emotions. A favorite for skin care, Petitgrain is gentle, yet effective to help with blemishes and oily skin. Petitgrain is one of the oils used in our KidSafe Tummy All Better synergy blend and it can help soothe upset tummies when applied with your favorite Plant Therapy carrier oil to the abdomen.

Add 2 drops of Petitgrain and 2 drops of Mandarin to your favorite aromatherapy diffuser, personal inhaler, or diffuser necklace to help calm and balance the mind during times of high emotional duress. Dilute using a 1-3% ratio with your favorite Plant Therapy carrier oil and apply topically to the skin to help blemishes and oily skin.

5.0 5  Possibly my favorite affordable single.

A bit fussy in bets are orange, mandarin, neroli, and citrus. Not bad with lavender out cedarwoods. Really relaxes me and takes me to my childhood near orange orchards. By itself, it is not obviously orange nor flowery, but rather woody with a hint of neroli. One of my staples for sleep or relaxation.

recommend  Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

1.0 5  Not for me

I tried to mix this oil with Bergamot and Ylang Ylang Extra and it made my blend smell like cut grass, and not in a good way. This smell just doesn't agree with me at all.

recommend  No, I wouldn't recommend this to a friend.

5.0 5  I love the smell

This is a distinct aroma that a lot of people do not like but for some reason I love it. It is a very strong scent. I am not a big fan of it on it's own but I really enjoy how it pops out in blends. When I make my own blends I am very careful to start slow when adding this because it can become over powering very easily. I use it in some sleep blends that I make.

recommend  Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

5.0 5  At first hesitant, but love it now

When I first smelled this oil I wasn't so sure if I wanted to diffuse it! But it's AMAZING mixed with other oils. I like to diffuse it with HoWood and it smells great. I like to diffuse it with HoWood and Lavender for a nighttime blend.

recommend  Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
