ABOUT NEROLI-PETITGRAIN CO-DISTILLATION ESSENTIAL OIL Well-rounded and complex, our neroli petitgrain co-distillation skillfully blends the honeyed fragrance of neroli oil with the pungent, slightly bitter notes of petitgrain. Distilling both the blossoms, leaves and twigs of the bitter orange tree produces an aromatic matrix of floral citrus which is uniquely euphoric and sensual. Unlike neroli, petitgrain does not have a long history of therapeutic use. Until recently it was used exclusively for perfumery purposes. Both neroli and petitgrain, however, are notable for their calming, centering, uplifting effect. Both are supportive to all body systems, and are known to promote comfort in the muscles and joints and encourage a balanced monthly cycle for women. Employed in direct inhalation, this oil will settle cramps or an upset belly. Similarly applied, both the emotional and physical heart may be soothed and supported by the use of neroli petitgrain oil. This blend is well suited for use when convalescing after illness. Petitgrain and neroli co-distillation is lovely for enhancing skin health and balance, improving tone, texture and clarity. The calming and settling effect of neroli petitgrain renders it useful to promote relaxation, uplift the mood, reduce stress, and support the body to stabilize after shock or trauma. A tonic and restorative to the brain, diffused neroli petitgrain soothes and uplifts the mind while relaxing the body. Neroli petitgrain can also promote deep, restful sleep. A well-known oil used to inspire sensual moods, neroli/petitgrain can be used in a bath or diluted in a massage oil to celebrate a loved one. Petitgrain refers to the steam distillation of organic neroli leaves and twigs. Floracopeia’s Neroli Petitgrain is a codistillation of neroli blossoms and the petitgrain green parts of the plant. HOW TO USE NEROLI-PETITGRAIN CO-DISTILLATION ESSENTIAL OIL Direct Palm Inhalation: Use two drops of neroli petitgrain in direct palm inhalation to settle the heart and promote tranquility. SAFETY CONSIDERATIONS FOR NEROLI-PETITGRAIN CO-DISTILLATION ESSENTIAL OIL Non-toxic, non-sensitizing, non-irritant. Do not take neroli essential oil internally.

Typically the blossoms are distilled first, producing neroli essential oil. The water soluble component is bottled as orange blossom water. Next follows distillation of the leaves, resulting in petitgrain oil. The rind of the fruit, at maturity, is expeller pressed to produce bitter orange oil. One hundred kilograms of flowers produces a maximum of 1,000 grams (1 kilogram) of neroli oil, making it a very precious and costly oil. Owing to its high cost, neroli oil is very commonly adulterated, either with petitgrain or synthetics, which compromises both the therapeutic qualities and aromatic profile. Petitgrain refers to the distillation of leaves, and sometimes twigs, of a citrus tree. In earlier days petitgrain oil was extracted from the small, unripe green fruit of various citrus trees. This proved economically unviable, however, as it resulted in a much smaller harvest of ripe fruit, so the name was transferred to the distillation of leaves and twigs. Petitgrain oil may be produced from bergamot, lemon, mandarin, and sweet orange leaves. Petitgrain of neroli is a classic ingredient in traditional French eau de cologne and has been used extensively in the perfumery industry, particularly as a substitute for the more costly neroli oil.
