We source only pure essential oils.

Though Petitgrain Paraguayan Essential Oil is distilled from the leaves and branches of the bitter orange tree, ours is like finding yourself surrounded by an orange grove in full bloom. The orange most certainly peeks through the complex layers of the aroma, but instead of the overt burst of citrus that is expected of the fruit oil or the sharper, greener notes of other petitgrains, the Paraguayan petitgrain we carry exudes a smooth, floral bouquet blended perfectly with the fresh scent of crushed orange leaves.

Rich in both linalyl acetate and linalool, this petitgrain could be used similarly to how you would use lavender oil and would be an excellent option for creating a calming and peaceful atmosphere. It could be particularly helpful for children who could benefit from the relaxing and comforting qualities of the oil. Uplifting citrus or even some of the more heady florals would make lovely additions to a blend featuring this essential oil!

4 reviews for Petitgrain Paraguayan Essential Oil

  1. Karen (verified owner)

    Paraguayan Petitgrain is a dream come true! From some one who dislikes the “sharpness/twang” of other petitgrains, to the point of avoidance in any blend, I was delighted to experience such softness, lovely, and oh so much gentler than any other petitgrains I have encountered previously. Game changer!

  2. Christee Gamron (verified owner)

    I had heard some Petitgrain EOs have the fragrance of Orange blossoms, rather than the typical Petitgrain twang. Based on the website description of this Paraguayan version, I thought this might be one. It is! No need for other Petitgrains or Nerolis with this around. It’s wonderful. Orange blossoms, but not as syrupy sweet like Neroli. A bit softer when dry. Lovely.

    I tried a sample of this petitgrain and couldn’t believe how wonderful it was! It’s very similar to neroli imo and smells nothing like the typical petitgrain I’ve smelled (which I hate) that smells like sticks. This will definitely be one of my next purchases.

    I was pleasantly surprised! Perfumey but not very sweet. It’s lovely

Petitgrain Paraguayan Essential Oil Safety Info

According to Tisserand and Young, there are no known hazards or contraindications. Petitgrain Paraguayan essential oil should still follow the safety guidelines below. ~ Source:  Tisserand, Robert and Young, Rodney. Essential Oil Safety: A Guide for Health Care Professionals: Churchill Livingstone; 2 edition (December 2, 2013). AZW3 file  Reading the full profile for Petitgrain Paraguayan Essential Oil is highly recommended by your DeRu Extracts staff.

While we’ve made this clear that we are selling this essential oil to use in your diffuser, your inhaler, or topically (diluted), it is a pure essential oil and can be used as such.  With all essential oils:

  • Never use them undiluted, in eyes or mucus membranes (this includes mouth, ear canals, noses, genital regions as well as internal areas).  The strength of essential oils can easily damage these soft tissue areas.
  • Do not take internally unless working with a qualified and expert practitioner.
    Keep away from children.
  • If applying an essential oil to your skin always perform a small patch test to an insensitive part of the body (after you have properly diluted the oil in an appropriate carrier).

  • Oral Safety is only given because many people have been told to take oils internally.  Because several people look to us for safety advice, we feel obligated to offer those safety statements, although we do not believe anyone should be ingesting essential oils without being guided by an expert.  Experts will take your medical history into account before they suggest oils for you to ingest, diffuse, or use topically.
