Relaxing, refreshing and uplifting.
Petitgrain essential oil makes for a good pick-me-up and tonic.
Citrus aurantium amara Leaf Oil is the volatile oil obtained by steam distillation from the leaves of the Bitter Orange, Citrus aurantium L var amara L, Rutaceae.
Petitgrain essential oil resembles Neroli and is a very useful aromatherapy oil in its own right.
Especially good for for oily skin and greasy hair. It's helpful in sebum reduction and as a treatment for acne.
It's also great for oily dandruff (put 2 drops in the final rinse after shampooing greasy hair).
