Petitgrain Lemon Citrus limonum (2460 – 10ml)

Any oil with ‘petitgrain’ in its name is steam distilled from the leaf of a citrus tree, in this case obviously Lemon. The aroma is indeed reminiscent of lemon, but with an astringent quality which is very gentle and soft. This is a wonderful ‘anti-stress’ oil that adds an enticingly harmonious effect to any living space. It can be used in an anti-stress massage blend, and its anti inflammatory qualites are good for skincare. Use it to support digestive function, muscles and joints and functions of the heart. Geraniol stimulates the uterus, so this oil is contra-indicated in pregnancy until the latter stages.

I find Oshadhi oils to be simply exquisite. Their fragrances are so rich and full bodied. It is easy to immediately discern the difference their insistence on extraction by slow distillation makes. The larger molecules make the oils like beautifully aged, smooth fine wines! Last week I ordered 1ml o ...
