Organic Lemon Petitgrain Essential Oil is a sunny, leafy-green lemon dream packed with effervescent plant power! This rare petitgrain essence is steam distilled from the leaves and twigs of Italian Lemon trees and is one potent botanical-biotic. Sweet and succulent with fragrant notes of green, the oil – like all petitgrain oils - is captured from the leaves and twigs of the plant. While they grow separately from the fruit, the foliage retains the essence and medical benefits of fresh citrus. Lemon Petitgrain lends sweet, citrus-green notes to natural perfumes. Emotionally, it is used to work through sadness, sorrow and strengthen close relationships.
The nerol content of Lemon Petitgrain is abundant (almost as much nerol as is found in Neroli Essential Oil) making it the loveliest aroma of all the petitgrain distillations. This aromatic delicacy brings emotional and spiritual levity. It is an optimal aromatic for healing deep seated emotions that want to be brought to the light of day.
“The spirit of petitgrain is embodied in gentle strength, encouraging positive resolutions and outcomes at difficult times. It enables us to see ahead and to forge a link with our inner truth. Helping us to understand that in our personal truth comes strength.”
