These Luxury Pomegranate Scented Candles are blended from rich juicy pomegranate top notes and spiced with amber and woody base notes. The ancient Greeks believed that the pomegranate tree sprang from the blood of Dionysus, the god of wine. The fruit was also associated with Persephone who, as a result of eating it, was forced by Pluto to return to the underworld for a third of each year. After this period, she came back to earth, signaling the beginning of spring. The pomegranate thus became a symbol of rejuvenation and eternal life. Influenced by the Persephone myth, the early Christians began associating the pomegranate with the notion of resurrection.
