Olfactive Description: Green, Floral, Fruity, Citrus
Petitgrain essential oil is a complex green and floral scent derived from the twigs and leaves of the bitter orange tree citrus aurantium amara. Sourced from Paraguay and France, it’s often used as a top or middle note in blends, but this complex essential oil smells divine on its own.
We recommend this essential oil for use in candles, wax melts, and tarts. It also makes upscale bar and liquid soap, scrubs, lotion, and perfume. Best yet, we found Petitgrain had excellent throw in our reed diffuser base.
Candle Maker’s Notes:
This essential oil is a top performer in soy wax, rating three leaves out of three on our soy performance scale. The green character we noticed out of the bottle carries through to the cold and hot throw.
