We have a new scent out at Precious Gem Luxury Soy Candles ladies and gentlemen. It’s perfect for your summer collection at home, at the office, or both! Our new luxury candle scent is called Grapefruit Mint, and boy, is it a “must have”.
An unusual variation to mint, this medley of grapefruit zest, orange, peach, bergamot, peppermint, jasmine, and musk is incredibly delicious. Honestly, I could almost taste it as I was writing these words.
Just for fun, I did some research on Bergamot. I’ve heard of it but realized I never actually knew what it was. The other ingredients are very common and many of us have heard of them on a regular basis, but Bergamot is not one you hear about every day. Maybe you already know what it is and where it came from, but in case you don’t, here are a few little facts on Bergamot:
-It’s a type of orange/citrus. Actual name: Citrus bergamia or Bergamot Orange
-It’s the color of a lemon
-It’s 80% commercially grown in southern Italy from a city called Bergamo (hence its name), but parts of southern France as well
- Citrus bergamia is a small tree that blossoms during the winter months
-It’s scent is common in Earl Grey teas and its juice has been used to help treat malaria and is also used in Aromatherapy
-Taste: less sour than lemon but more bitter than grapefruit—oooohweee talk about pucker up!
-It’s been used in many skin care creams because of its cool, refreshing properties, and can help calm inflamed skin due to psoriasis. On top of that, in some forms it has antiseptic properties that can help ward off infection and aid in recovery.
*We don’t recommend putting our product on your skin, however.
