Wonderfully citrus with a woody undertone, Petitgrain essential oil is both balancing an uplifting in aromatherapy blends. Steam distillation is applied to the leaves and twigs of the Bitter Orange tree, (the same plant used to distil Neroli essential oil) to release oil held in tiny sacs on the leaves. Bursting with positivity, Petitgrain will boost feelings of joy and bravery when facing a challenge and help promote hope and calm. Applied in a facial blend, Petitgrain is also balancing and rejuvenating, particularly for oily or combination skins. Try combining it with Geranium or Sandalwood oils in a light carrier oil such as Peach Kernel and applying to the face each evening before bed.
