Petitgrain Essential Oil
Calming, cheering, stress busting...
the poor man's neroli
Petitgrain essential oil is most often used for calming down nervous panic, stress and anger.
It soothes your mind, relaxes your muscles and lifts your mood, while also slowing down your heartbeat.
Use it in your aromatherapy diffuser to calm your toddler's tantrums (or anyone else's tantrums for that matter!)
Although petitgrain smells less sweetly floral than neroli, its effect on the nervous system is very similar to neroli's, and it costs WAY less.
So if you need to be thrifty, you can use it as a substitute for some or all of the neroli in a recipe.
Use petitgrain to ease tension, sadness and insomnia. Use a drop or two in a warm bath before bed or in an aromatherapy diffuser at the end of a long, stressful day.
It's also good for clearing up oily, acne-prone skin, while also toning the skin (makes a great facial steam.)
