Petitgrain Citrus aurantium
Petitgrain essential oil is derived from the bitter orange tree, which has a long history of use in traditional health practices. There are three essential oils derived from the bitter orange tree. Petitgrain is distilled from the leaves and twigs of the tree, Neroli essential oil is distilled from the blossoms, and Bitter Orange oil is produced by cold pressing the rinds of the fruits. By sourcing Petitgrain from Paraguay through our Co-Impact Sourcing™ initiative, doTERRA is able to support needed rural community development projects and provide diversified income for small-scale farmers. This approach provides an economically viable alternative to clear-cutting land, dramatically helping to protect the remaining patches of the Atlantic Rainforest in eastern Paraguay.
