Man Found Standing Writes:
Petitgrain Bigarade, Organic: Paraguay (Citrus aurantium)
Historically the Petitgrain oil has been used in a wide range of health conditions including stomach issues, lymphatic drainage, and pain. This tree produces a wide array of healing properties from the oil. Oil can be obtained from the fruit, flowers, and leaves. The two most popular oils are Petitgrain Bigarade which is steam distilled from leaves and twigs and the much more expensive Neroli which comes from the blossoms. The pressed oil from the fruit of the bitter orange tree should not be confused with the regular Orange tree (Citrus sinensis).
