Petitgrain has often been called “man’s lavender” as it contains much of the same chemistry and benefits of lavender, but without the floral scent. Petitgrain oil is sourced from the same kind of trees as Neroli oil, it just comes from the leaves and twigs instead of buds. Used in aromatherapy for its calming, uplifting properties, and is great for the skin.
