Organic combava petitigrain essential oil is steam distilled from the leaves and twigs of Citrus hystrix. Combava petitgrain oil has an earthy, somewhat dry aroma with notes of citrus. The essential oil distilled from the leaf and twig has a strong, long-lasting aroma, which could be considered a lovely mix of lemongrass and petitgrain.
The aroma can be overpowering in a blend, so use with caution. It is a very uplifting addition to room sprays and air freshening diffuser blends. The major constituent is the aldehyde citronellal, which leads to some of the notable properties in the oil. With anywhere from 58-82% citronellal, combava has a higher content of this constituent than citronella oil. This oil blends well with other oils like cedar, sandalwood, frankincense, bergamot, and clary sage.
