Botanical Name: Citrus aurantium L. var amara

Main Constituents:
Linalyl acetate: 45.92%

Plant Part: Leaves and Twigs

Origin: Italy

Processing Method: Steam Distilled

Description / Color / Consistency: A thin, colorless to pale yellow liquid.

Aromatic Summary / Note / Strength of Aroma: A top note with a strong aroma, Petitgrain smells like orange blossoms, but less floral, more herbaceous, and with a bitter undertone.

Blends With: Bergamot, Cedarwood, Clary Sage, Geranium, Lavender, Lime, Jasmine, Neroli, Orange, Palmarosa, Rosemary, Sandalwood and Ylang-ylang .

Product Abstract: Native to Southeast Asia, the bitter orange tree that provides Petitgrain, Bitter Orange and Neroli now grows throughout the Mediterranean and sub-tropic areas worldwide. Originally the oil was produced from the unripe oranges when they were the size of cherries; in fact its name comes from petit grain, which in French means 'little grain'. This proved uneconomical, and thus began its extraction from the leaves and twigs of the tree instead. It is used extensively in perfumery and cosmetic preparations.

Cautions: Dilute before use; for external use only. May cause skin irritation in some individuals; a skin test is recommended prior to use. Contact with eyes should be avoided.

Storage: It is recommended that oils packaged in metal containers (for safe shipping), be transferred into dark glass containers to maintain freshness and attain maximum shelf life.

NOTICE: This item is listed under California Proposition 65. California residents will receive this product labeled accordingly.

My hands down favorite of any citrus oil! Pettigrain is perfect mixed with a little lemon and frankincense! Nice bold sweet, strong, and relaxing. I recommend using it along in a humidifier - trust me :) Maybe one day I'll purchase the 11 Pounds, but for now the 3.3 oz bottle will have to do :)

Such a beautiful, wild scent. It's a true blend of fruity, floral, and herby! Surprisingly well-rounded; it's not too fruity/sweet, pugently floral, or annoying herbaceous whatsoever. I've got nothing else to say, it makes me happy and I'm really impressed.

I absolutely adore this oil! I find it to be reminiscent of it's precious relative, neroli essential oil, but with a more of a herbacious hint to it, which I love as well. Of course, much more affordable too. They are both delicious. I will always, always buy this oil!! Thank you!

Lovely scent, both floral and orange with a tinge of herbal. Hoping to mix it into the new conditioner that I ordered. With it's complex scent it's an oil you will enjoy again and again.

I just bought a sample size to try. I really like the scent of this petitgrain. I did not find it bitter at all like others I've tried.

This smells exactly like twigs and leaves. Easily identifiable. It has as many skin benefiting properties as the expensive neroli. I use this in soaps and it works great.

This smells exactly like a broken twig from an orange tree, citrusy but with bitter undertones that are not entirely pleasant. That said, the overall smell is not bad. I just find it hard to mix with other EOs and would use it more for its therapeutic properties than for its actual smell.

I like initial herbaceous scent out of the bottle, but it smells like mustard or pickles to me. Would not purchase again.

I purchased this oil without knowing anything about it--just had a feeling that I needed it in my repertoire of oils. And, wow, am I glad to have it! As soon as I smelled it, I knew it was "MY" oil. It calms me and balances every extreme emotion.

Like neroli with a pop of galbanum or cypress or something else in the "green" family. Not a substitue, per se, especially not therapeutically, but an interesting change of pace for chypre and floral fragrances in need of some grassy qualities sans the incense or wood notes found in most "green" odors.

I mixed Petitgrain with Peru Balsam and what a great aroma. I use this for my deodorant mixed in shea butter and it is wonderful. The best mix I have tried. I had only bought a small size now I am back to get a larger size.

For a beautiful scent combine this Petitgrain with the other essential oils in the Orange family - Neroli, Bergamot and Orange. The blend is a natural and uplifting scent for the diffuser or anything else you would like. This Petitgrain does have a beautiful scent all on its own as well.

Great fresh, green scent! I didn't like petitgrain when I first smelled it--too fresh and strong--but now I use it quite a bit (in deodorant blends, air fresheners, and uplifting blends).

I have not had substantial experience with Petitgrain, love the idea that it can mimic Neroli, for much less. Looking forward to finding more ways to use it. I enjoy reading the reviews for the ideas given Thanks NDA and everyone. With the price I could aford to experiment!!

One of my new favourite oils! I like the scent because it is not overly "sweet" and blends well with an earthy/woody toned oil. Fresh, clean scent when used in a burner.

Prior to ordering this essential oil, I was not familiar with petitgrain. I purchased it after reading the reviews left by other customers, and I am glad I did. I really like this oil, the scent is bright. Very enjoyable.

Lovely scent - widely used in perfumery. Do not expect a real orangy aroma - it is citrusy but much more green. Wonderful aroma. Great quality!

This oil is also one of my favorites.... if you don't have the money for neroli.....buy petitgrain. Ok, it's not the same vibrationally or any other way, but it comes from the leaves of the same tree, and the scent is very close yet a little more 'green'. I absolutely love this oil with a nice balsamic or woody scent (like sandalwood). Truly a beautiful treasure.
