Hello there, Kind Friends! Today I have a review of the two products I mentioned in my six-month pregnancy update (it’s actually almost time for my seven-month update, whoa), a lemon-scented candle and a lavender reed diffuser from Simply Heaven Candles.

Lemon Drop: Hand Poured Soy Candle Review
I love lemon scents, especially in the kitchen, so I was more than a little pumped to be getting this soy candle for review. With my pregnancy senses going crazy, I can smell pretty much everything, so the kitchen hasn’t been a great place for me to be if I don’t have a candle burning.
The pros of this product are it’s even-burning and long lasting flame. I’ve used this candle fairly frequently and it’s only half burned through, while in other candles I’ve had I believe in this amount of hours I would have already had to buy a new one. Thankfully the wax also burns evenly, so I don’t have any of those awkward wax dips or hollow middles.
The one con I’ve noticed so far with this candle is it’s undertone smokey smell. Chris doesn’t seem to notice this, so maybe it’s just my super senses, but underneath the lemon, I smell something similar to a campfire. It doesn’t take away from the lemon entirely, but I do think it detracts from the overall pleasantness.
Lavender: Richly Scented Reed Diffuser Review
I tend to associate lavender scents with relaxation, probably along the rest of the world, so this reed diffuser was made for my bedroom.
The lavender smell itself is wonderful, and I love the presentation of the bottle for this product, but in the end, it doesn’t spread across the room as much as I’d like. I don’t think I have a big bedroom, so that was a little disappointing, however, I noticed the smell fills up my small bathroom well so I moved the product into that smaller space.
Overall, I would definitely purchase these products myself and try more from the candle line. I, in particular, would be interested in seeing how their fragrance oils and oil warmers measure up.
Thank you Simply Heaven for sponsoring this review! I am enjoying the products immensely.
See you all with another pregnancy update soon!
