Petitgrain is one of our newest essential oils and I'm so excited about it! Petitgrain comes from the leaves of the bitter orange tree (orange oil comes from the rind of the fruit and neroli comes from the blossom). dōTERRA's Petitgrain is sourced from Paraguay. Through their Cō-Impact Sourcing initiative, they are able to bring life back into the Petitgrain industry in this region, that prior was dying.
I am absolutely loving my new Spikenard essential oil. It will be available for purchase on October 3rd, but I got it early because I attended doTERRA's annual convention this month.
Spikenard gets its name from the spikes of the plant that the oil is distilled from. Highly prized in the middle East during the time of Christ, it’s referred to several times in the Bible. According to the Gospels, Mary Magdalene anointed Christ using Spikenard and it's fragrance is said to have filled the house.
