Citrus fruits can help to energize, uplift and stabilize your mood.  They’re powerful antioxidants that can help neutralize free radicals. They can flavor your food and drinks, and can help boost your immune system. Here are a few more examples of the powerful benefits of citrus.

Grapefruit has been known to help promote weight loss.

Orange scent can help uplift and can act as an antidepressant.

Lime is stimulating and refreshing.

Bergamot helps soothe the nerves and can reduce nervous tension.

Lemon is a natural detoxifier and antiseptic.

Imagine your next vacation with Tangerine

The moment you light your Chi Chi candle, with sweet pineapple, coconut and tangy tangerine, you become transported to your favorite beach side destination. If you want to feel like you’re sitting seaside, even while you’re relaxing in your living room, simply light a Chi Chi candle, grab a favorite beach read, make yourself a fresh beverage and enjoy a lovely staycation from the comfort of your own home.

Take Your Cooking & Dining Experience to the Next Level

Our Blood Orange + Clove candle has rich notes of bourbon mixed with sweet blood orange and spicy clove. Light this candle while you’re cooking a delicious meal and enjoying a glass of your favorite Cabernet. The spicy scent of our Blood Orange + Clove candle would complement a salad made with fennel and avocado topped with a honey, ginger and garlic dressing quite nicely.

Uplifting your Meditation, Yoga and Pilates Practice

Our Moonlight Bliss candles are perfect for yoga, meditation and pilates. The next time you practice  yoga, light a Moonlight Bliss candle about 10 minutes before you begin to get the full benefits of the uplifting grapefruit and the relaxing lavender and chamomile. With each inhale you’ll reap the benefits of the mood balancing grapefruit. Grapefruit, combined with yoga, can also help to further reduce stress.

Whether you’re exercising, working or relaxing at home, citrus fruits and scents can help enhance your experiences with their beneficial, powerful properties.

Breathe deeply and enjoy.
