PETITGRAIN OIL (Citrus Aaurantium)

Petitgrain oil is prepared from the leaves and twigs of the same tree that produces Bitter Orange and Neroli oil. Different varieties of Petitgrain are made from the Sweet Orange, Lemon, Bergamot and Mandarin etc., and it is useful sometimes to have alternatives to the Bitter Orange variety. The best Petitgrain comes from the Mediterranean region and a cheaper grade is imported from Paraguay.

Petitgrain citrus aurantium var. amara this uplifting oil can be used to ease nervous tension, anxiety, mild depression and other stress-related conditions. Petitgrain essential oil is captured by steam distillation of the leaves and twigs of the bitter orange tree, also known as the Seville orange. The blossom of the same tree yields the precious essential oil of neroli, with orange flower water being produced as a by-product of the distillation process. There is also an essential oil of bitter orange which is extracted from the rind of the fruit.

The bitter orange is an evergreen tree with glossy leaves. The white flowers are borne singly or in small clusters and are intensely fragrant. They are still in flower when the small, rough-skinned oranges appear. Although a native to Southeast Asia, the tree is now cultivated extensively in the Mediterranean and sub-tropical regions throughout the world. Bitter Seville oranges are used commercially to produce candied peel and marmalade.

In firmer times the distilleries around Grasse produced an essential oil from the green, unripe oranges when they were still the size of a cherry, hence the French term petitgrains, meaning 'little grains’. Production of this oil proved to be uneconomic, for it greatly diminished the crop of mature oranges. So the traditional name was transferred to the oil extracted from the leaves and twigs. To the connoisseur, the finest petitgrain oil comes fiom the south of France and other Mediterranean regions, although high-quality oils are also produced in Tuinisia, Morocco, Egypt and Paraguay. The essential oil is a pale yellow or amber liquid with a fresh aroma that is reminiscent of orange hlossom, although having a Bitter, woody, herbaceous undertone. Its odour effect is generally perceived as cooling, relaxing and uplifting.
