History: 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.
