Product Information

Arctander writes, of Petitgrain Bigarde: “of pleasant, fresh-floral, sweet odor, reminiscent of orange flowers, with a slightly wood-herbacious undertone, and very faint but sweet floral dry-out notes.”

Emotionally, it’s a powerful oil, calming anxiety and panic, acting as an antidepressant.

Physically, it tends to be a sedative, which agrees with its relaxing effect on the mind. Some authorities recommend it for treating rapid heartbeat, and for insomnia. I have also seen it used in recipes for deodorant blends. Petitgrain oil is an ingredient in our anti-anxiety blend, Reunité. Basically, Petitgrain may be used in any application for which one would use Neroli; at a lower cost.

My CCAP instructor, when we were studying Petitgrain Bigarade in class, recommended it for “Monkey Mind”… you know, it’s three a.m. you have slept for a few hours and now your mind is just running, tomorrow’s todo list, next week’s crisis, all the things one’s mind can chatter on about at 3:00 am. My personal experience? Yes! Worked like a charm.

SHELF LIFE: Approximately 2 to 3 years after you open the bottle. Storing in the dark, refrigerated, and decanting half full bottles into smaller, full bottles will extend shelf life.

    Petitgrain is a beautiful oil on its own. I recently combined it with NG blood orange essential oil (in an inhaler) for me and my niece and we both are enjoying the powerful calming, soothing benefits. This combo really curbs both our racing thoughts and middle of the night awakenings. I like to put a drop of each oil on a tissue and put inside my pillowcase.
