Things That Makes Scents Giveaway: Soy Candles Make “Scents & Sense"!-Now Closed-Winner Announced Soon!

12:08 PM Posted by Centsible Mommy



Not only do the candles, melts, tarts, wax dipped stuffed animals, & much more found at Things That Make Scents make for some of the most wonderful “scents” you’ll ever smell, but because they are all made from soy make perfect “sense” for your health & home.


Soybean candles and all the other scentsational products sold at Things That Make Scents are made from soy so they are cleaner, healthier, and more cost-effective than their petroleum-based counterparts. They are created from non-toxic, natural soybeans and when burned correctly are virtually soot, smoke and pollution free- so not only will you be breathing easier, but you’ll be "greener"! Click here for more facts on why soy candles are better for your health & the environment.

So besides the fact their candles are better for your health and the environment, Things That Make Scents' candles come in a unique array of scents like Almond Biscotti, Chocolate Covered Strawberries, and Granny’s Kitchen just to name a few. You can see a list of all the scentsational scents and their descriptions here!


Janine, owner and creator, of Things That Make Scents sent me a few samples from her shoppe to try out and I was in senses overload when I opened the package and the wonderful scents hit my nose. The wonderful scents only got better when I burned the candles and tart. My favorite I think was the Almond Biscotti Soy Cupcake Candle she sent. Not only does it look like a real cupcake (so real in fact that my 3 year old son asked “Can I have a bite?” when he saw it sitting on my counter before I lit it), but it smells dizzingly delicious! These soy cupcakes come in lots of delicious scents!

Okay, so you’re loving the sound of these candles, and want to make your home smell scentsational? Guess what Things That Make Scents is offering one of my readers a chance to win a $25 gift certificate to spend any way she chooses. And if that were not enough, they are also offering my readers a savings of 20% off- Just use the code “TTMSSEPT20” (coupon cannot be combined with any other discount or promotion.)

Here’s how you can get a chance to win:
