Petit Grain Bigarade

Among its qualities, we highlight its relaxing action that can help those who suffer from insomnia and a nervous breakdown.

Being an intestinal regulator, it may help in case of celiac disease.
On the skin, it is recommended to fight acne, pimples, eczema, and itch in general.
If inhaled, it is useful for airways infections. If massaged on the back, it calms asthma attacks. It is also used in perfumery.

Suggested uses and dosage:

  • Home diffuser: add 2-3 drops to 100 ml of water.
  • Bathtub: emulsify 8-10 drops of essential oil with coarse salt — or alternatively milk, cream, or honey — to add to the hot water (so that the oil doesn’t evaporate due to the heat)
  • Massages: dilute 2-5 drops of essential oil in a tablespoon of carrier oil
  • Cosmetics: add 2-3 drops of essential oil to one tablespoon of natural moisturizer
  • Food: we recommend 1-2 drops to add to herbal teas (we suggest to always start with the lower dose and then increase it later, if preferred).
    This essential oil is perfect for the preparation of some cocktails.

Caution: use with moderation. Do not use in case of chronic diseases, pregnancy, or when breastfeeding.
If in doubt, please consult your doctor/naturopath.
