Origin: a Latin derivative
meaning "Gift of the Earth."
Gardenia is an elegant and beautiful flower with an exceptional fragrance, and has been greatly cherished by the Chinese people since ancient times. As early as the Tang Dynasty, gardenia was gifted to Japan as a symbol of peace and friendship. The essential oil yield from steam-distilled gardenia flower is very low. Massive amounts of gardenia flowers are required to produce a small amount of gardenia essential oil. Like jasmine essential oil, gardenia essential oil is also a valuable perfuming ingredient.
