Common Uses And Benefits:

Petitgrain is distilled from the leaves, twigs and branches of the Bitter Orange tree (whereas the bitter orange essential oil is usually cold pressed from the rinds of the fruits). It can help with nervous exhaustion, convalescence, insomnia and stress-related conditions especially anger and panic. 

Petitgrain helps to clear and tone the skin. It is particularly good for greasy, congested skin, acne, pimples and other blemishes, as it has a mild antiseptic action and helps to control over-active sebum production. Petitgrain also acts as a deodorant and can help relieve excessive perspiration.
