Native to Southeast Asia, the bitter orange tree that provides Petitgrain, Bitter Orange and Neroli now grows throughout the Mediterranean and sub-tropic areas worldwide. Originally the oil was produced from the unripe oranges when they were the size of cherries; in fact its name comes from petit grain, which in French means 'little grain'. This proved uneconomical, and thus began its extraction from the leaves and twigs of the tree instead. It is used extensively in perfumery and cosmetic preparations.


For maximum shelf life and properties maintain, it is recommended to keep in an amber glass bottle.


It is important to note that most essential oils cannot be applied directly to the skin (without being diluted). Due to the presence of thujone in this oil, please consult a physician prior to using it. Skin test before use is recommended. Avoid eye contact.
