I discovered a very mysterious scent after I made the decision to join Scentsy. The name of this scent is the “Camu Camu Scentsy Bar.” My research of this scent produced very little documentary information. One product description read “thick, rich New York cheesecake with a light graham cracker crust and delicious blueberries.” The only other product description I could find read, “Tropical oasis of lush mandarin, camu camu, and passion fruit.” At first blush these descriptions seem to be describing two different products. Clearly “thick, rich New York cheese cake with a light graham cracker crust and delicious blueberries” is not the same thing as “tropical oasis of lush mandarin camu camu and passion fruit.” The more I think about it the more I arrive at the conclusion that the first product description is some how in error. I do not really know what “Camu Camu” is but I am pretty sure it has nothing to do with cheesecake and graham cracker.
According to WebMd “Camu camu is a shrub that grows in swampy or flooded areas of the Amazon rain forests of Peru, Brazil, Venezuela, and Colombia. The fruit and leaves are used as a medicine. Camu camu is used for viral infections including herpes, cold sores, shingles, and the common cold. It is also used for eye conditions including cataracts and glaucoma. Other uses include treatment of asthma, “hardening of the arteries” (atherosclerosis), chronic fatigue syndrome, depression, gum disease (gingivitis), headaches, and osteoarthritis. Some people use camu camu to increase energy and maintain healthy gums, eyes, and skin; and as an antioxidant and immune system stimulant. People eat the fruit as food.”
Clearly the description above from WebMd has nothing to do with New York cheesecake and graham cracker crust. After reading this description it is my considered opinion that that Scentsy website had put the cheesecake description erroneously on the Camu Camu Scentsy Bar product page. This is one of many mysteries I have solved since I made the decision to join Scentsy.Read More
