What is Petitgrain?
An oil of royalty, petitgrain oil comes from the bitter orange (Citrus aurantium) tree, the very same that produces the aromatic neroli oil—though the oils are derived from different parts of the tree. This evergreen tree, native to Asia but commercially grown throughout Paraguay and France, can reach a height of 29 feet. It has shiny leaves and waxy, white flowers, which are the source of neroli oil.
Petitgrain has been used for centuries; the ancient Greek philosopher Theophrastus used it as an ancient version of moth balls! It wasn’t until the 17th century that people truly recognized the value of petitgrain thanks to the Italian princess Anne Marie Orsini, who treasured neroli oil. With the focus on neroli, people began drawing oil from the small, green, unripe bitter oranges, naming the oil “little grain.” Over time, it was decided that the leaves and branches were a much more practical source of oil, and so the modern version of petitgrain oil was born!
