Petitgrain Bigarade – Citrus auranthium aur.
Origin: Paraguay
Family: Rutaceae
Part used: Leaf

Petitgrain Bigarade oil is extracted from the Bitter Orange evergreen tree, native to China. It produces white fragrant flowers and small fleshy orange fruit. It is most likely a cross between the pomelo and the mandarin. Very popular in perfumery, it also has a reputation medicinally as a stimulant and appetite suppressant, due to its active ingredient, synephrine. It is also thought to bring calm and composure.

This oil is currently extracted from the leaves of the tree but was originally extracted from the green, unripe oranges when they were the size of cherries, hence the name petitgrain. The distillation has been widely used for its alluring aroma in perfumery. Its cleansing, restorative tones have also been promoted to aid intellectual clarity, and to help in times of anger or panic. A blend of Sandalwood and Petitgrain Bigarade has been used with reported success by a range of anger management groups in New Zealand to promote a calm atmosphere for effective communication.
