🍊 FUN FACTS 🍊

Petitgrain means “little grain” derives its name from the oil extraction- at one time it was pulled from the green, unripe oranges which were about the size of a cherry, instead of the leaves. Though steam distilled from the same botanical species as neroli and bitter orange, Petitgrain Essential Oil possesses its own characteristically unique aroma. Petitgrain Oil is distilled from the leaves and sometimes the twigs and branches of the tree whereas Neroli Essential Oil is distilled from the blossoms and Orange Essential Oil is typically cold pressed from the rinds of the fruits.Because if its pleasing scent, petitgrain has been used extensively in high-quality perfumes and cosmetics.

The ORAC value of petitgrain is 73,600 µTE/100g, compared to the highest, Clove, which is 1,078,700. 

🍊 WHAT IT DOES 🍊 

Petitgrain essential oil has traditionally been used to support a healthy nervous system—particularly with nervous stress and exhaustion. It may  improve instances of excessive perspiration. And support healthy skin and hair; particularly good for oily skin.

It is emotionally balancing and is very uplifting. This oil can help us release denial, avoidance and self judgment. Once these emotions are released we can see that we are using our emotional addictions to keep an a state of denial.

Petitgrain oil is about relinquishing self control and instilling self acceptance and love. It helps us be rather than do therefore it is helpful in easing panic and fear; and calming the body.

This oil can help us overcome addictions and compulsions. It releases denial, avoidance and self judgment. Once these emotions are released we can see that we are using our emotional addictions to keep an illusionary state.

This is fantastic oil for those who are always on the run (doing and work addiction) and will not take the time to address their emotional or spiritual path. As we know the addictive path is one of self destruction and burn out, because the physical body can not continue on this path 24 hours a day without repercussions.
