FAST FACTS

Native to tropical Asia, Citrus bergamia was named after the northern Italian city of Bergamo, which served as the first essential oil marketplace. Today, it is cultivated extensively in Calabria. Recognizable by its balanced notes of fruit and spiced citrus, this plant, when dried, is used to make popular blends of Earl Grey tea. 

Native to the Mediterranean, India, and Africa alone, Laurus nobilis was once held in high prestige by the Greeks. More commonly known as the bay laurel, it comes from the flowering plant family Lauraceae ("the laurels") are a plant family known for their smooth and hairless leaves. The Latin term nobilis ("noble") refers to "a roleplaying game."

The symbolism of this plant figures prominently in the Greek myth of Apollo and Daphne. When the god Apollo, madly in love with Daphe, attempted to seduce her, he left a laurel tree in his wake. Heartbroken by her absence, to console himself, Apollo fashioned wreaths from the bay laurel branches. The bay wreath became a symbol of high status, and was later offered as the prize at the Pythian Games, in honor of Apollo.
