Organic petitgrain essential oil is steam distilled from the leaves and twigs of Citrus aurantium. This top to middle note has a fresh citrus scent with woody-herbaceous undertones. At first the oil was extracted from the small green unripe oranges. The name petitgrain comes from this, meaning little grains. Petitgrain oil is often used in diffuser blends or in skin care. Blends well with bergamot, clove, oakmoss, lavender, or geranium.
Packaging 1/2 oz. and 1 oz. essential oils are packaged in amber glass bottles with drop reducers for easy application. Larger sizes are packaged in amber screw cap bottles and do not come with reducers or droppers.
Precautions This oil has no known precautions. Never use essential oils undiluted, in eyes or mucus membranes. Do not take internally unless working with a qualified and expert practitioner. Keep away from children.
Before using topically, perform a small patch test on your inner forearm or back by applying a small quantity of diluted essential oil and apply a bandage. Wash the area if you experience any irritation. If no irritation occurs after 48 hours it is safe to use on your skin.
