Observations and Anecdotal Information
Petitgrain Bigarade essential oil is distilled from the leaves of Citrus aurantium.
It tones the skin, treating both oily and dry skin conditions, including acne. It is a strong antiviral, antibacterial, and immune stimulant.
It is wonderful for diffusing into the air. It has been shown to inhibit the growth of staph, strep, and pneumococcus bacteria. It combines well with other citruses and petitgrains.
It has been used in the treatment of hepatitis, as an internal remedy, with proper dilution.
Petitgrain essential oil is an effective treatment for insomnia, restricted breathing, rapid heartbeat, and stomach pain. In the bath, it will calm the spirit as it relaxes the body and releases muscular tension. It is also fine choice for spinal compresses.
Petitgrain has antispasmodic properties, soothing and releasing muscle spasm.
- Generally recognized as safe at normal dosage.
- Not recommended to use with infants or small children. It is very cooling and can be a shock to their undeveloped nervous systems. For colic relief or other digestive issues in small children, try a highly diluted form of anise or caraway.
- Keep all essential oils away from eyes.
- Store in a safe place, out of the reach of children.
- All internal uses should be researched and/or supported by a health care professional. Product quality and dosage are critically important when using essential oils internally.
