petitgrain essential oil

3
Citrus Aurantium Var Amara

Petitgrain is a unique essential oil, in that it is sourced and derived from the same plant as other oils, but from different parts of the plant that contains a different chemical constituency. The tree in question is the same species that the Bitter Orange grows on, but Petitgrain comes from the leaves and twigs, rather than the fruit of the tree. Because it comes from the leaves and twigs of the same tree, much of the effects are similar to other citrus oils, but there are some stark differences, particularly in regards to digestion.
