Petigrain is one of two brand new oils that you can get from doTERRA!  

This oil is distilled from the leaves and twigs of the Citrus aurantium L. (bitter orange) tree and it is sourced in the country of Paraguay. Despite being derived from a citrus tree, Petitgrain is actually more chemically similar to floral and herb essential oils because of its high concentrations of linalyl acetate and linalool.  Many describe the aroma as citrus, floral, and slightly woody. Petitgrain offers calming, cleansing, and many benefits that support several bodily systems.

Petitgrain essential oil has been most commonly used aromatically. The high concentration of linalyl acetate provides benefits similar to that of Clary Sage or Lavender, offering calming and harmonizing properties. Inhaled Petitgrain may help promote feelings of calmness and encourage relaxation.

Like many other citrus-derived essential oils, Petitgrain is very useful for cleaning. Petitgrain essential oil has surface cleansing properties, making it another great option, in addition to citrus oils, for your kitchen, bathroom, or other household cleaning. Petitgrain and Lemon essential oil can be used together to make a wonderful all-natural household cleaner.

Petitgrain essential oil may support the cardiovascular, digestive, immune, and nervous systems; provide antioxidant support; and even promote sleep. Use Petigrain to help with physical cleansing or unwinding in the eveing by adding 1-2 drops into a glass of water.

Because of its similarities to Lavender essential oil, many men enjoy using this in place of the floral aroma. Your sure to find many ways to use Petigrain in your home!
