PETITGRAIN Essential Oil is the perfect oil to pair with Lavender Essential Oil because it’s often known as “The Man’s Lavender.” That is, it shares many of the same soothing properties as Lavender Essential Oil, but its aroma is less floral and more herbaceous.
So if there is a man in your life who would benefit from Lavender Essential Oil but has been resistant to trying it, PETITGRAIN Essential Oil can fit the bill!
Men aren’t the only ones who enjoy the aroma of PETITGRAIN Essential Oil, however: many women and children love it, too. For this reason, it’s often used in the perfume industry. It makes a great addition to DIY colognes, soaps, and lotions.
PETITGRAIN Essential Oil comes from the bitter orange tree. FUN FACT: Neroli Essential Oil comes from the same plant, although Neroli comes from the flowers/petals while PETITGRAIN Essential Oil comes from the twigs and leaves. Its fresh scent blends well with other Citrus Oils, as well as oils like Cassia, Cinnamon, Eucalyptus, Geranium, and Lemongrass.
Like Lavender Essential Oil, PETITGRAIN is high in both linalool and linalyl acetate content, which gives it its calming, relaxing properties. This makes it a great choice to put in your diffuser when you’re feeling stressed or anxious or to sprinkle on bedsheets or pillowcases to help promote quality sleep.
You can use it aromatically, topically, and even internally. When you add it to tea or water, not only does your body benefit from its relaxing qualities, it can also support the cardiovascular, nervous, digestive, and immune systems.
Given its similarities to Lavender Essential Oil, it’s probably not surprising to hear that PETITGRAIN Essential Oil is great for your skin. Dilute with Fractionated Coconut Oil and apply topically to help reduce the appearance of blemishes and aging.
If you love both Lavender and PETITGRAIN Essential Oils, you can combine them for a powerful calming and cleansing effect. Take this Owie Spray recipe, for example:
