Persephone, otherwise known as the 'Queen of the Underworld' is the Greek goddess of fertility and spring and maidenhood.
Daughter of Zeus and Demeter, she was kidnapped by Hades and taken to the Underworld to be his bride. When Demeter learned that Zeus has conspired on her daughter's abduction she was furious, and refused to let the earth fruit until Persephone was returned.
Unfortunately Persephone had already eaten the pomegranate seeds which tied herself to Hades—the pomegranate being a symbol of the indissolubility of marriage. It was eventually decided Persephone would spend 6 months of the year in the underworld (when we experience the colder seasons) and 6 months above (when the earth blooms).
Persephone is usually depicted as a young goddess holding sheafs of grain and a flaming torch. She is described as mystical, visionary and often possessing spirit guides.
Persephone's Fruit is strong, powerful and fruity, the perfect scent to describe our namesake deity.
