Combava Petitgrain / Kaffir Lime Essential Oil, Wild Crafted

Starting at:

Combava Petitgrain oil, (Kaffir Lime), Wild, Madagascar has an atypical citrus scent with unique nuances because of the natural constituent, laevo-citronellal. Though Steffan Arctander describes the scent as somewhat similar to Eucalyptus Citriodora, Combava Petitgrain is sweeter and lacks any medicinal notes.

Studies at Kinki University in Japan found that it has strong anti-inflammatory properties.  Other research has shown that it combats depression.  

It's medical properties are anti-inflammatory, antidepressant, relaxant, rich in citronellal which possesses calmative properties.

Use it for stress, anxiety and trauma.  Dilute 1:1with carrier oil to apply on location.  Diffuse up to 30 minutes three times daily.  Directly inhale.  Use on vita flex points.  Found in Trauma Blend.

This is my favorite Petitgrain...crisp, tart, with a lemon/citrus tang. It freshens the air and uplifts the spirit. A few drops in the lamp or diffuser bring a total change in the atmosphere.
