Organic Petitgrain Bigarade Essential Oil comes from the Citrus Aurantium L. tree, which is mainly produced in Paraguay, Italy, and France. This is one of the three oils obtained from the Orange tree; the others being Neroli from the flowers, and Orange from the rind of the fruit.
Petitgrain oil is extracted from the leaves and twigs of the tree, but was once extracted from the green unripe oranges, when they were still the size of cherries. The name Petitgrain or little grains comes from the size of these cherries. The scent of this essential oil is floral and citrus, mixed with a hint of bitterness
Simply the best! At Nature's Oil we recognize that organic petitgrain essential oil is only as good as the plant it's distilled from. With the U.S leading the world in banning toxic pesticides, we recognize the need to source certified organics. By selling USDA certified organic essential oils, we ensure the farming, distilling, brokering and filling process all follow the same exhausting standards that the USDA has instituted for the organic program regardless of the plants country of origin.
