Petitgrains special gifts for you….

Petitrain essential oil (also known as orange leaf oil) is extracted from the leaves and twigs of the aromatic bitter orange tree that also yields a sweet exotic essential oil from its blossoms (neroli), and a refreshing, uplifting essential oil from its fruits.  


Petitgrain eases stress-related shallow breathing, respiratory infections, colds and ‘flu.  Blended in non-perfumed cream or lotion, or vegetable oil, such as olive, petitgrain improves the condition of dry, chapped and cracked skin.  It is emotionally calming and uplifting and eases feelings of anxiety and depression, aids mental clarity, and eases insomnia, among many other qualities and gifts.

Exuding a ‘carrot-like’, slightly sweet, woody, earthy odour, this oil has a ‘grounding’ effect yet is also revitalizing to the nervous system, qualities which aid mental clarity, calm anxiety and strengthen inner ability to ‘move on’.   Blended in vegetable oil, cream or lotion, this oil also demonstrates remarkable skin healing and supporting qualities excellent for mature and sensitive skin.
