An exceptional specimen of Gardenia oil that’s lushly sweet and florally intense, extracted using a 19th century French enfleurage technique. Gardenia flowers are first organically grown high in the Andes Mountains in Columbia, then harvested and laid on a solid oil medium to pull out the gardenia aromatic oils from the freshly picked petals. This process is repeated every few days over a period of several weeks until a sufficient amount of precious gardenia oils have been absorbed. The producer determines the strength and concentration of the final enfleurage oil by deciding the length of time, and the amount of flowers used, to achieve the final aromatic result.  This last step is the difference between this premium gardenia aromatic tenacity, than a lessor quality available that was quickly produced in a shorter amount of time with minimal flowers used. To demonstrate this point, this enfleurage extraction took three painstaking months starting in January 2018 and ending in March 2018.  The scent proves its tenacity on a scent strip where it maintained an 80% aromatic volatility 24 hours later.  A truly masterful and rare Gardenia extraction with all its integral complexity. 

The artisan producer from this Gardenia enfleurage uses certified USDA organic, kosher, non-GMO palm oil that is sustainable and locally produced without pesticides or harmful contaminants, with a non-hexane organic grape alcohol to separate the oil medium from the flower absolute. Unlike traditional enfleurage methods used in the 19th century, no animal fats or petrochemicals are used in this extraction. 

Gardenia contains antioxidants and is quite useful for calming anxiety, irritability, insomnia, and menopausal imbalances. It is also used to treat infections, abscesses, jaundice, and cools blood, reduces swelling, and treats injuries to the muscles, joints, and tendons with its hemostatic properties.

This exquisite Gardenia enfleurage can be used in natural perfumery, to fragrance skin care, body care, or just a sheer joy of smelling this beautiful floral all on its own.

The Most Beautiful Floral Ever
When I was child, I remember smelling a natural gardenia flower in the garden growing up. Its lush, creamy, white floral aroma really captured my senses like nothing else before. Most people know how Gardenia smells because of synthetic versions in the fragrance industry to mimic its lush, fruity floral aroma. I was stunned after trying this, that the real Gardenia scent I remember as child, is fully captured in this oil. Ultra lush, heavenly floral, smooth and creamy that last for hours on end. The most beautiful floral in the world.

Not exactly what you'd expect
I was very excited to order this as Gardenia flowers have the most heavenly scent. This enfleurage doesn't capture the depth and mystery of the Gardenia, but rather the fruity spectrum which is quite nice, but doesn't smell like Gardenia at all to me!
