We could all use a little more rest and relaxation in our lives. Taking a walk through the park or sleeping in past 9 a.m. isn't always possible, but with Petitgrain those calming moments can come with ease. With an extraordinarily peppery and fruity-green aroma, Petitgrain can alleviate stress and soothe away depressed emotions through direct inhalation. Topically, Petitgrain helps fight acne, greasy hair and oily skin. Many people use it as an all-natural deodorant to maintain freshness throughout the day. Petitgrain can also relieve indigestion and restore health to the digestive tract. In French, Petitgrain translates to "little seed" because it was originally produced from the small purple fruit of bitter orange trees. Today, the essential oil is derived from the leaves and twigs of the tree through a steam distillation method. The Petitgrain from France is steam distilled using the leaves only, but other sources, such as Paraguay, often include some of the twigs as well, which will provide a slightly different aroma and color. Interestingly, Petitgrain is derived from the same tree as Neroli. The flowers of the tree, native to China and India and grown in Europe and West Africa, are cultivated to produce Neroli. Petitgrain's unique composition is perfect in a soothing bubble bath to soothe the body and mind.
