Mommy! Something's Stinky!!!

My three year old has had this insane sensitivity to certain smells lately. She refuses to "go" in public washrooms. She'd "hold it" until we get home.

The other day, she started crying like crazy.

Me: What's wrong? Is everything okay?
Little One: Mommmmmy! Something's stinky!!!!
Me: (sniffing) I really don't smell anything.
Little One: I don't like it! Something is stinky!!! (wailing)
Me: Ummm...what does it smell like?
Little One: It smells like POO!
Me: Oh. Well, you do know we live on a farm, right?

The crying didn't stop until I lit the HunnyB Soy Candle I received (and should have reviewed prior to that impromptu trip to the Philippines we had to make a few weeks ago).

I have to say that I have a sensitivity to fragrances and very potent scents make me nauseous and headachy...even when I'm not pregnant. These, however, are fantastic!  I'm a fan of aromatherapy candles, but I am extremely picky when it comes to the fragrances. Anything too strong makes me ill, so I always have to go for really good quality aromatherapy candles.  The good thing is that with the better quality candles, the burn time is longer too.

Some info on HunnyB Soy Candles:
While other popular candles are made of paraffin wax, HunnyB's Soy Candles are made of 100% non toxic, clean burning soy. Our soy wax is a 100% natural soybean product, and collected from farmers right here in the US. Unlike other products, our candles are biodegradable and contain no carcinogens. The result is a cleaner burning candle leaving no black jars, walls or ceilings. Additionally, HunnyB's Soy Candles burn longer and provide a larger and superior scent throw. 
Isn't that great?

I was blown away by their selection of scents! They have over 300 fragrances to choose from!

I ended up choosing Coconut Lime Verbena. I love anything citrus or coconut scented, so this was a no brainer! The rich, creamy coconut scent combined with the refreshing, fruity citrus smell of the lime just made my house smell so good!

There were no more "Something's stinky!" cries from my three year old after that.

Check out the amazing HunnyB Soy Candle selection and try some out for yourself! They're Little One approved! :)

Disclosure -  I received a HunnyB Soy Candle (of my preferred fragrance/scent) to facilitate this review.  All the thoughts and opinions on this blog are honest and my own.

Okay, well I'm on her side. I don't like public washrooms either. People are disgusting! bleh

LOL! Okay, I'm totally with you. I HATE public washrooms too. I can't stand them. I try not to let her see my pukey face when we have to use a public toilet. I just don't want to pass on my weird quirks to her, but I think she's inherited the extreme disgust/dislike of public toilets! LOL!

Ha! That's funn. "um you do know we live on a farm right?" hahahaha

The thing I dislike most about many scented candles are that they smell good when you smell them unlit but once you light them, they don't smell good anymore. Hope these aren't like that!

Christine said...

I totally know what you mean! That's one thing I don't like about some scented candles too! They smell great but when you light them, they don't. THESE ones smell great before, during, and after! :)
