Food scents that shouldn’t be made into candles

My house is filled with candles. Candles in the bathroom, candles on the kitchen table, candles on the nightstand. My favorite scents are food related fragrances like apple and cinnamon. Those are some pretty normal, vanilla flavors. But I stumbled upon a strange website recently where you can suggest a candle scent and buy some other unique smelling candles inspired by food and drink. It’s called Hotwicks. Here’s my top five weird scents from Hotwicks both suggested and made.                                                                                                        

THE FRESH BREAD CANDLE

5.  THE FRESH BREAD CANDLE

I know people love the smell of fresh bread, but it’s kind of strange for a candle. Why don’t you just bake some bread instead?

4. THE MEAT CANDLE

“My friend’s wife is not a good person and she’s a hardcore vegetarian so when she visits my house, I would love to fill the house with the fragrance of meat… of any kind.” — Suggested by JD., RALEIGH, NC

3. THE ASPARAGUS PEE CANDLE

“This was already suggested but I want to second the idea and strongly recommend it. It’s one of the funniest smells ever.” –Suggested by Josh E., MIAMI BEACH, FL

2. THE BACON CANDLE

“Everything’s better with bacon, including your living room. Now you can turn your love of bacon into a full-blown problem with the new HOTWICKS BACON CANDLE. Burn it with THE COFFEE CANDLE and THE PANCAKE CANDLE and treat your nose to a nice breakfast.” -Hotwicks

1. THE BEER CANDLE

I feel like you might have an addiction if your burning this wick.

Homage to sushi

I absolutely adore sushi. And just because I’m on living the paleo diet doesn’t mean I will ever give up sushi for the little bit of rice that is squished in between raw goodness and seaweed nutrition. I found an article that discussed the dreaded white rice question- is it bad? I won’t ever make rice as a side or cook it in a casserole, but a little bit of rice on my sushi isn’t going to kill me. So here’s some of the coolest rolls and sushi related things I’ve seen as a tribute to such a delicious snack:

Do you have an aphrodisiac in your cupboards?

Today we have Viagra and Cialis. But throughout history, our ancestors turned to the mystical workings of nature. From fruit to spices, there were food remedies to cure any problems of one of humans’ most basic instinct, sex.

These traditions have carried on to modern times. Some foods, such as raw oysters, have a notorious reputation for turning you on. But others are less known. Do you have an aphrodisiac in your cupboard?

Avocados
The Aztecs called the avocado tree “ahuacatl,” or “testicle tree,” according to an askmen article. Avocados “contain high levels of folic acid, which helps metabolize proteins, giving you more energy. They also contain vitamin B6 (a nutrient that increases male hormone production) and potassium (which helps regulate a woman’s thyroid gland), two elements that help increase libido in both men and women.”Cinnamon

A pinch of cinnamon in your coffee or tea everyday could result in better sex. The spice lowers high blood sugar which can restrict the flow of blood to the vagina and penis.
 
Pumpkin Seeds
You might never look at carving pumpkins again. Pumpkin seeds are high in zinc, which has a reputation for increasing fertility and sex drive. Also high in zinc; Shellfish. Shellfish includes not only oysters, but shrimp, mussels, clams, scallops and lobster among others.
 
Arugula
Who knew a salad could be so sexy. Arugula greens have been rumored to be an aphrodisiac since the 1st century. It was often combined with other ingredients such as pine nuts, also an aphrodisiac.
 
Honey
Love can be as sweet as honey. “Many medicines in Egyptian times were based on honey including cures for sterility and impotence. Medieval seducers plied their partners with Mead, a fermented drink made from honey. Lovers on their “Honeymoon” drank mead and it was thought to “sweeten” the marriage,” according to gourmetsleuth.com.
 
But not everyone believes in aphrodisiacs. Dr. Ruth Westheimer says, “researchers discovered that a man must consume nearly 50 oysters to feel their sexually intensifying effects. As for the wine, more than one glass can cause your blood vessels to constrict and put a damper on your arousal.”
 
So what are some other cures for sexual problems? Livescience.com says respect and getting in shape are better for your sex life.

Could eating magic mushrooms become the new medical marijuana?

“Drugs are bad, mkay.”

Those are famous words coined by Mr. Mackey, South Park’s school counselor. Children and young adults often hear those words (minus the “mkay”) from their own teachers, school speakers and parents throughout their young lives.

 But more and more studies are attempting to prove that a drug is actually good. They say that eating magic mushrooms may help people with  depression and other health issues.

Hmmm, is this going to turn into another medical marijuana epidemic?

The  hallucinogenic chemical compound in the mushroom, psilocybin, helps ” turn off the parts of the brain that integrate sensations – seeing, hearing, feeling – with thinking,” according to an article on The Chart.

Wait…what? It’s going to turn off seeing, hearing, feeling? Wouldn’t that make me some kind of mindless zombie?

The study also found “that the more psilocybin shuts off the brain, the greater the feeling of being in an altered state of consciousness. [] It’s not the same as dreaming, because you’re fully conscious and aware.” Yea…this is also known as tripping.

Obviously, being in an altered state of consciousness can make one less depressed. Why do people drink after a stressful or bad event? Why do people abuse pills? To feel good.

Getting someone high is not a cure. It’s a cover-up.
