Where Does Petitgrain Essential Oil Come From?

Petitgrain is derived from the leaves and twigs of the Bitter Orange tree.  (Other components of this same tree produce Neroli and Bitter Orange essential oils.)

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.

How to Use Petitgrain Essential Oil


  • Diffuse for a calming and relaxing aroma. Blends well with other citrus oils, Cassia, Cinnamon, Eucalyptus, Geranium, and Lemongrass.
  • Take internally to help ease feelings of tension, help calm the nervous system, and promote restful sleep.*
  • Before going to bed, add a few drops along with Lavender or Bergamot to pillows and bedding for its aromatic benefits.
  • Add one to two drops to water or juice and drink to help support the health of the cardiovascular, immune, nervous, and digestive systems.*

Directions for Use
