Scent Story: Gardenia

Posted on January 04, 2013 by admin

A true southern flower, the Gardenia, or Cape Jasmine, gets its powerful scent from its creamy fragrant white flowers. In ancient Victorian society, the gift of a flower held great symbolic meaning. In fact, one could carry on quite a conversation with flowers alone. The gift of a gardenia was a way to tell them they are lovely. Wearing a gardenia signified joy....and perhaps a secret love. Interestingly, this flower is most often seen today at the most public declarations of love: weddings.

Caution: this oil is an aphrodisiac. It lifts the spirits and gets the blood flowing.
