This captivating co-distillation is especially made for us from organically cared for Egyptian Bitter Orange trees. By fusing the heavenly effects of Neroli blossoms with the toning components of Petitgrain, we have created a charismatic essential oil that smells divinely delicious and is less expensive than Neroli alone and is far more fragrant than simply Petitgrain. Neroli Fleurs sur Petitgrain is a unique essence with the synergistic benefits of both Neroli and Petitgrain.
"Petitgrain essential oil is distilled from the annual pruning of the leaves and tiny, very recently formed fruits, which are called petit (or little) grains. This essence is appreciated in perfumery (as an indispensable element of eau de cologne) and aromatherapy alike. Petitgrain essential oil is nontoxic and can be used liberally in preparations used to address stress and imbalance of the autonomic nervous system."
~ Kurt Schnaubelt Ph.D., The Intelligence of Essential Oils
"Psychologically, Petitgrain is invigorating, uplifting, and clarifying. It is a heartening tonic..."
~ Kate and Peter Damian, Scent and Psyche
"The spirit of Petitgrain is embodied in gentle strength, encouraging positive resolution and outcomes at difficult times. It enables us to see ahead and to forge a link with our inner truth."
~ Valerie Ann Worwood, Aromatherapy for the Soul
How do we love thee, orange tree? Let us count the ways.
Our hearts and noses are filled with gratitude for the many aromatic gifts of the generous orange tree. The hypnotic floral fantasy of Neroli is produced by steam distilling the orange tree’s fragrant white flowers, and opulent Orange Blossom Absolute uses a solvent extraction method on those same fragrant flowers to capture a richer, thicker, and more viscous essence that has incredible tenacity in perfumery. Twiggy-tangy Petitgrain oil is a steam distillation of the orange tree’s leaves and stems, and it is perfectly poised to refresh the senses, revive the skin, and reinvigorate the spirit. Cold-pressed orange peels release bright and sunny Orange Essential Oil used as fresh, sparkling notes in perfumes and is nearly always used as a top note. Neroli Fleurs sur Petitgrain is a captivating co-distillation of Neroli blossoms with the twigs and leaves of Petitgrain to create an enchanting, super sensual scent.
