What is Petitgrain Bigarade Essential Oil : The original French Petitgrain was referred to as ‘ Petitgrain le Bigaradier’ , which means ‘bitter orange Petitgrain’. Petitgrain Bigarade essential oil is distilled from the true bitter orange tree, not any of its sub-species or hybrids. Even so, many essential oils called ‘Petitgrain Bigarade’ are actually distilled from species of this tree grown in Paraguay. Historically, people in Central and South America, as well as China, Italy, Haiti and Mexico used decoctions of the leaves internally to treat cold, flu, fever, indigestion, diarrhea, vomiting, nausea and hemorrhages. The essential oil is steam distilled, and the resulting oil is often clear with a slight yellow tint. Even though it is derived from the bitter orange tree, petitgrain is the least fruity of the three. Although the aroma is a bit citrusy, it also has woody and floral notes. Petitgrain bigarade essential oil doesn’t have a long history of medicinal use like neroli. It was traditionally only used in perfumery and cosmetics, although recently it has become popular in aromatherapy and is now included in many massage oils, body scrubs and other skin care products.
