Neroli (Citrus aurantium)
1 Neroli Tree
Neroli is produced mainly in Egypt, France, Morocco, and Tunisia. Neroli Essential Oil is steam distilled from the bitter orange flowers of the Bitter Orange Tree. Neroli Essential Oil is a pale yellow color with a sweet, floral scent.
The Bitter Orange Tree was native to China and was introduced to Europe during the 12th Century. Neroli Essential Oil is an important ingredient in Eau-de-Cologne Toilet Water. The flowers are often used in bridal bouquets; they symbolize innocence and fertility.
Neroli Essential Oil Properties include: Antidepressant, Antispasmodic, Sedative, and Soothing.

Petitgrain (Citrus aurantium)
1 Essential Oil of Petitgrain
Petitgrain is produced from Bitter Orange Trees in Africa, Haiti, and Paraguay. The essential oil is steam distilled from the leaves and twigs of the trees. Petitgrain Essential Oil is colorless with a fresh, invigorating scent.
Petitgrain Essential Oil carries the following properties: Antidepressant, Antispasmodic, Antiseptic, Digestive, Nervine, and Tonic.

The main difference is Neroli Essential Oil being steam distilled from the flower of the tree and Petitgrain Essential Oil being steam distilled from the leaves and twigs. Neroli is the more expensive of the two, but when using Essential Oils for healing purposes, sometimes it’s better to pay the extra price.
