Petitgrain Bigaradier / Bitterorange - Citrus aurantium var. amara

Bigaradier petitgrain essential oil is obtained by steam distillation of the leaves and twig tips of bitter orange (Citrus aurantium var. amara) won. Bitter orange belongs to the genus of citrus fruits (Citrus) in the rue family (Rutaceae) in the order Sapindales. Synonyms for the bitter orange are bitter orange, Seville orange or sour orange. The bitter orange is a hybrid of the pomelo (Citrus maxima) and the tangerine (Citrus reticulata) and probably originated in southern China. Petitgrain means "little grain," referring to the small, unripe fruit that was originally distilled. With the additional designation "Bigaradier" (Fr. bitter sour orange), the essential oil is distinguished from petitgrain oil "Mandarinier" distinguished, which is obtained from the tangerine tree (Citrus reticulata). In addition to the essential petitgrain oil, the bitter orange also provides bitter orange oil (from the peel) and neroli oil (from the flowers). Today's distribution areas are the Mediterranean region, Brazil and the West Indies. The bitter orange is an evergreen tree that can grow up to 10 m tall. There are thorns in the leaf axils. The tree develops white, strongly fragrant flowers from which the precious essential neroli oil can be extracted. The rounded, somewhat flattened fruits for the cold pressing of the essential bitter orange oil develop from the flowers.
