This technique helps to clear your head and nose. For adults, add 4–6 drops to a bowl of steaming water, pace a towel over your head and breathe.

Diffusers & Burners
A natural air freshener, this technique creates an energizing ambiance and mood. For adults, add 1–3 drops in a diffuser or burner. For children over 2 years old, add 1–3 drops in a diffuser.
WARNING: Do not use undiluted on the skin. For external use only. Avoid contact with eyes. Keep out of reach of children. Flammable. Use within 12 months of opening. Some citrus oils can corrode the plastic components inside a diffuser, damaging the inside of the diffuser and leaving behind a permanent citrus scent which may interfere with the fragrance when you choose to use a different essential oil or blend. The damage caused to the inside of the diffuser may also void the manufacturer’s warranty. We advise you to empty and rinse the tank of your diffuser and then wipe dry with a clean cloth every time you finish using a citrus essential oil or blend. This will protect the tank from the damage that can be caused by corrosion.
A very pleasant aroma to this essential oil, which at once both relaxes and gives me an enthusiasm and a desire to be more creative and active.
Love this scent, I purposely went looking for something that would help me feel alert and to help concentration. It’s so refreshing too, perfect for my diffuser in the mornings to kick start my day!
I haven't tried any other Petitgrain oil. I'm not sure I need to - this smells amazing.
A refreshing addition to a post workout wash, subtle for HIT training and better for yoga
