The steam distillation process of the leaves of the Orange Blossom tree, also referred to as the Bitter Orange tree, produces the Petitgrain Bigarade essential oil. It is quite different from the Bitter Orange oil which is derived from the peel of its fruit.
Petitgrain Bigarade oil is better than the peel oil because it can blend better without the annoying and photosensitizing components of the peel oil. Its aroma is almost the same as Neroli oil having sweet, floral, and fresh notes.
Petitgrain Bigarade essential oil can be a great alternative to other citrus oils in regulating the oil production of the skin while maintaining just the right amount of moisture. Overdrying is not a solution to oily skin because when the brain gets the signal that a part of the body is dried, it will transmit signals to the oil glands to produce more oil on that part, which will just result to more comedone formation and acne. This oil may also be added to creams appropriate for other types of skin.
Petitgrain Bigarade essential oil is popularly used in aromatherapy because of its pleasant aroma that may induce relaxation effects. It can help treat symptoms of insomnia, anxiety, stress, and depression. It is also best to be added in pampering sessions like in spa therapy, foot soaks, bath scrubs, and sauna. The soothing effects may also result in a more restful sleep.
Petitgrain Bigarade Essential Oil Fuses nicely with Bergamot, Clary Sage, Geranium, Clove, Jasmine, Neroli, Lavender, Oakmoss, Orange Blossom, Orange, Melissa, Palmarosa, Labdanum, Rosemary, Cardamom, Sandalwood, Balsam of Peru, and Ylang Ylang.

I decided to purchase Petitgrain Oil when I read that it was anti-aging when applied to the skin, good for hormone balance and great for stress relief, headache relief and general relaxation. The orange flower odor is lovely right out of the bottle but even better when diluted in a carrier oil or a diffuser. It has a more “earthy” scent than Neroli Oil but I think I actually like it better. This oil also blends well with Clary Sage and Ginger Essential oils. Enjoy!
