Orchid Fragrance Oil
The epitome of delicate floral grace, the flowering plant family of orchids (Orchidaceae) contains over 26,000 species—four times as many species as mammals! Each species of orchid emits a distinct aroma to attract specific pollinating insects; there are those whose scent is beautiful, sweet, and floral, which are the ones that attract butterflies and bees, while others emit a scent that would put rotting meat to shame in an effort to attract pollinating flies. We’ve captured the gorgeous sweetly floral scent of some of nature’s most beautiful flowers in our Orchid Fragrance Oil!

History of Orchids
Believe it or not, orchids are a ancient plants—evidence of pollen found on the backs of amber-encased insects suggests they have been around for 80 million years! Over the millennia, these gorgeous flowers have co-evolved with their insect pollinators and, despite their delicate appearance, are surprisingly tough plants. They can be found growing in the ground, from rock ledges, and even nestled in trees! They earned the nickname Orchid in 1845 from English botanist and orchidologist John Lindley, who simply shortened the family name Orchidaceae.
