Petitgrain Essential Oil
Petitgrain, Citrus aurantium, has a fresh, floral, citrus scent with some woodsy notes. Petitgrain is one of the three oils obtained from the orange tree. The others are Neroli from the flowers and Orange from the fruit. Although today Petitgrain oil is extracted from the fresh leaves and small twigs, it was once extracted from the green unripe oranges when they were still the size of cherries, hence the name Petitgrain or "little grains." It is a balancing oil that helps clear and tone the skin.
