The essential oil of petitgrain also comes from the bitter orange, but this time we obtain it by the hydrodistillation of these leaves

The essential oil of petitgrain is obtained by the hydro-distillation of bitter orange tree’s branches and leaves. Its notes are aromatic, sparkling, citrus, woody, green and bitter. But they are also sweet and floral, like orange blossom. Eaux de Cologne contain petitgrain and it is also a raw material used in baby products.
