Common Name: Grapefruit

Botanical Name: Citrus paradisi

The evergreen grapefruit tree grows up to 15m tall, with glossy dark green leaves, white flowers and large, pink or yellow fruits with pink flesh.  Its pithy peel is steam distilled to produce a fresh citrus top note.

Properties: Grapefruit is well regarded as an uplifting mood enhancer known to reduce stress and fatigue, whilst building energy levels and metabolism.  Its clarifying powers are employed to detoxify and fight respiratory infections.

Forage: The “citrus of paradise” is one of the many citrus species grown in Barbados and the Caribbean islands.  Very common in 1700’s, George Washington writes in his Barbados Journal (1750-1751) about ‘the Forbidden Fruit’ as one of the local fruit available at a dinner party he attended.  Now found throughout Barbados, Dominica, Jamaica, Martinique.

    Best best best candle to have!
    Love the smell!
    Love to feel this cool freshness in my house.

    Love the quality!
    They last very long and they use the best wax! When I blow the candle out I love to rub a bit of the wax in my hands, it feels like having a massage with the best quality oils!
