  Petitgrain, Clementine (no ratings yet)
Citrus reticulata (Citrus clementine), organically produced, steam distilled leaves, France.


The effects and action of traditional Bitter Orange Petitgrain, but with a softer, sweeter, more noticeably citrus scent. This Clementine Petitgrain is the closest substitute I have found to true Clementine Rind that I’ve found when we are unable to source the organic rind oil.  Aromatically this new batch is a bit deeper than specimens we have offered in the past.  In addition to the citrus and green leafy notes there is almost a hint of forest floor... the aroma of leaves, mosses and undergrowth, and crumbling soil  Layers and layers of complexity.  Michelle, who does most of our pouring, says that this is far and away he favorite petitgrain.

I’ve been using it in the aroma lamp, for when I don’t want to be energized, but just lifted up a little bit. I find it emotionally encouraging, I can’t find another word for it. Blended with Vetiver, it works wonderfully as an anti-anxiety and grounding synergy. I like to use a drop before a nap. Pleasant dreams!

Like any Petitgrain Essential Oil, this is an emotionally a powerful oil, calming anxiety and panic, acting as an antidepressant. Physically, it tends to be a sedative, which agrees with its relaxing effect on the mind. Some authorities recommend it for treating rapid heartbeat, and for insomnia. I have also seen it used in recipes for deodorant blends.

If you want the uplifting smile bringing effects of a citrus oil, without energizing and with no risk of photosensitization, you owe it to yourself to try this beauty!

SHELF LIFE: Approximately 2 to 3 years after you open the bottle.  Storing in the dark, refrigerated, and decanting half full bottles into smaller, full bottles will extend shelf life.
