Gardenia Information:

Gardenia flowers are sometimes used to flavor tea, much like jasmine and bergamot oils, but are used mostly in perfumery, especially oriental fragrances. Since Gardenia is known as “osmically balanced” (meaning that the compounds are perfectly balanced, containing a base, middle, and top note), it can be worn as a single-flower perfume.

Gardenia oil has been used as an insect repellent.

Safety Warning: Avoid in pregnancy, and on babies and children. Never ingest essential oils without a prescription. Use carrier oil when applying to skin.
