Petitgrain is a fantastic oil which comes from the leaves of the bitter orange tree, the same tree the lovely Neroli comes from. Pettigrain is ideal for reducing stress due to its calming yet mood-lifting properties and its balancing effect on the nervous system. It has also been traditionally used to reduce pain and spasms from irritable bowel syndrome or indigestion issues. I love to use this oil in my diffuser at night before bed as it very soothing and calming for the heart helping you to achieve a restful night's sleep. Pettigrain has a lovely exotic and sensual aroma of fresh leaves with a hint of citrus.
Emotionally, this oil influences self love and self acceptance and it helps to release negative emotions such as avoidance, denial, or self judgement.
You can also use Pettigrain in your cleaning sprays as it is a great deodorizer for the home.
