Another beautiful petitgrain joins our lineup of world class petitgrain essential oils! Lemon is an understated type of petitgrain with minimal amounts being produced by distillers.
You will appreciate its uplifting clean fresh aroma with subtle familiar notes of Neroli essential oil. Both Petitgrain Lemon and Neroli share a high amount of Nerol, Neral, and Neryl acetate with this Lemon Petitgrain having a greater overall percentage when we compared the GC results of both. The primary difference between them is the major constituent of limonene in our Lemon Petitgrain (44.27%) versus high linalool in Neroli Egypt essential oil (42.87%).
