You will find relief from spasms when you use Inshanti’s petitgrain pure essential oil. Blend it with other essential oils (see “How to”) to effectively counter the pain and spasms of irritable bowel syndrome. Petitgrain is also a sedative, reducing pain, calming the nervous system, and bringing emotional balance. “Bigarade” means Inshanti’s petitgrain oil is produced from the bitter orange tree, exuding its pleasing aroma. Petitgrain can also be distilled from the leaves of lemon (citrus limon), bergamot (citrus bergamia), mandarin (citrus reticulata), and sweet orange (citrus sinensis) trees.
