Words by Mikaël


By dissolving blockages, the petit grain eliminates stress and anxiety.

The plexus chakra is relieved, warmed up; the spirit is calmed and can finally rise to better recharge its batteries.

Relaxing, analgesic, rejuvenating and regenerating.

Nervous rebalancing, the essential oil extracted from petit grain leaves reduces nervousness and the harmful effects of stress.

Petitgrain also relieves palpitations, spasms, muscle and nervous tension.
