Petitgrain (Bigarade) Citrus aurantium var. amara or Bigaradia 15ml


The most pronounced uses of Petitgrain are for reducing spasms, calming the nervous system, and bringing an emotionally balancing and uplifting effect. This oil blends beautifully with Bergamot, Orange and Roman Chamomile for reducing the pain and spasms from irritable bowl syndrome. We also use it at night for a calm sleep and to reduce stress. The aroma is reminiscent of fresh leaves after the rain. It is made from the leaves of the bitter orange tree (neroli and bitter orange are also made from this same tree--Neroli from the flowers and Bitter Orange from the rind of the fruit).

Blend it with all citrus oils to enhance its antispasmodic effects and create a beautiful aromatic blend. Petitgrain is the perfect oil for a refreshing room or body spray. It is cooling, uplifting and and even deodorizing!
