Petitgrain oil comes from the bitter orange tree, Citrus aurantium. Originally from Southern China, the bitter orange tree was brought to Paraguay in the 19th century, and now flourishes easily in this part of the world. The bitter orange tree produces three different essential oils. Petitgrain oil is taken from the tree’s twigs and leaves and steam distilled to produce a refreshing, floral, and herbaceous essential oil. Neroli essential oil is derived from the blossoms of the bitter orange tree, and bitter orange essential oil comes from the rinds of the fruit through the process of expression. Petitgrain oil has been used historically for traditional health practices and has been a popular ingredient for the perfume industry since the 18th century.
