Plant Description

This multipurpose tree, commonly known as the Mandarin orange tree, is native to Southeast Asia.  This sun-loving, small, often thorny evergreen tree, grows between 15 – 25 feet.  It produces fragrant, white flowers from which Neroli essential oil is extracted.  Its lanceolate leaves can be broad or slender and have minute, rounded teeth upon narrowly-winged petioles.

 

Plant History

Having been cultivated for more than 2,000 years, Citrus reticulata produces an essential oil, otherwise known as Petitgrain essential oil, distilled from the leaves of this tree that gives us mandarin oranges.  Originally Petitgrain essential oil was extracted from the small, immature fruit; hence, the name Petitgrain which in French translates petit = small + grain = fruit. Now, petitgrain essential oil is extracted from the leaves and/or branch tips.
