None known


Originally the oil was produced in distilleries from the unripe oranges when they were the size of cherries.  This explains why it is named petitgrain – which in French means little grains.  Nonetheless, this proved to be uneconomical and so the oil began being extracted from the leaves and twigs of the orange tree instead.
