The oil was originally made only for private use, but family friends and acquaintances tried it out and liked it so much they convinced Mr. Gan to produce it on a commercial basis.
He called it Pak Fah Yeow (also written Bai Hua You, which means white flower oil), named for his favorite flower, the white narcissus.
