Petitgrain Essential Oil
Citrus aurantium amara

Petitgrain has been used in eau de Cologne for hundreds of years because of its refreshing, stimulating and deodorising effects.

Today it is used in perfumery, cosmetics and as a flavouring in drinks. At first the oil was extracted from the small green unripe oranges. The name petitgrain comes from this, meaning little grains.

Source: It is grown commercially in France, North Africa and South America.

Extraction: Petitgrain essential oil is steam distilled from the leaves and twigs of the bitter orange tree.

Aroma: Pure Petitgrain essential oil has a tangy, sharp, orange scent.

Fragrance note: Top to Middle.
