History: Petitgrain oil is actually distilled from the leaves and twigs of the same species (Citrus aurantium) that produces neroli and bitter orange oils. Probably native to the Middle East, petitgrain oil is now produced in several Mediterranean countries such as France, Italy, Tunisia and Morocco, as well as in the United States. The medicinal uses of bitter orange appear in the medieval writings of Gerard, who prescribed the warm juice of the bitter orange to treat worms and scorpion stings. Greek physician Theophrastus also recommended layering citrus rinds into clothing before storage to repel moths. Petitgrain is a French term meaning “little grain” and refers to the former practice of extracting the oil from from unripe, cherry-sized bitter oranges, called “grains”.
