With spring around the corner, it’s no surprise that many of us are already dreaming of new gardening projects. But even if you have a not-so-green thumb, you can still enjoy the magic of this gorgeously fragrant flower around your home.

Here are 12 of my favorite picks for gardenia lovers who are ready to add more of this gorgeous white flower to their home.

Crate and Barrel

Gardenias look beautiful in shallow vases or floating on water. It allows you to see the flower while also enjoying its fragrance. If you don’t already have them growing in your garden, you can purchase a bundle of gardenias from your local florist and float them in several bowls, like this one, throughout your home.

2: Hand Soap

This gardenia hand soap would be a wonderful choice for a guest bathroom or your kitchen sink. Along with the gardenia scent, this soap also includes star jasmine, tuberose, citrus and other essential oils. If you love this scent, you can also purchase additional gardenia products, including hand lotion, dish soap or a scent diffuser.

6: Fabric

If you’d like to create some of your own throw pillows, a blanket or even reupholster a piece of furniture, this pink gardenia fabric could be the perfect choice. Most gardenias are white; however, if you’re lucky, you might come across a pink one. This large-scale design would look particularly beautiful in a sunroom or on a charming front porch.

7: Fragrance Oil

If you like to use an essential oil diffuser at home, you should definitely consider adding a gardenia fragrance to your rotation. You could diffuse the gardenia scent on its own, or mix it with other essential oils (such as jasmine or eucalyptus) for a more layered scent.

8: Linen Napkins

Oscar de la Renta loves gardenia flowers, which explains why he created this lovely set of linens as an ode to the pretty, white blossoms. If you dig this pattern, you can also purchase his gardenia placemats and napkin rings.

9: Area Rug

This simple, hand-tufted rug would look beautiful in almost any space, especially in a more modern bedroom or dining room. The blue-green background would pair well with a gray or beige palette.

10: Soaking Stones

These lovely soaking stones were created by holistic clinician Dr. Kristina Ivy. The stones are meant to help detoxify and relieve tired aches and muscles. In addition to the Spanish gardenia, the stones also include honeysuckle, hibiscus, bergamot, vetiver and green tea. The stones come in a pretty glass bottle that would look gorgeous displayed on your bathtub.
