Review: Kim's Tarts Sinus Relief

Who says you can't burn candles or melt tarts while you're sick?

Especially when the tart in question is called "Sinus Relief." Can't you just smell the mint from here? Ahhhhh, soothing.

I bought a bunch of tarts from Tart Candles by Kim a while back, but actually haven't gotten around to using any of them; then I remembered (in a moment of genius) that I had a bag of Sinus Relief tarts! WOOT!!

The website description reads: "Ever smell the scent of vick's vapor rub? Our sinus relief fragrance is a cool, crisp blend of camphor, eucalyptus, and mint. Great for snuffed up noses!"

Well, a stuffed up nose is what I've got! It's probably just a head cold, but I'd rather not infect anyone, so I'm kickin' it at home today. The entire bedroom smells like Vick's Vapor Rub, but not in a bad way. It's refreshing, minty, medicinal, perfect for these under-the-weather days. It has actually lifted my spirits a bit, and I'm able to smell a lot better! The throw is strong, and most of that probably has to do with the combination of scents.

Plus, this is SO MUCH NICER than actually using Vick's.

The best part about Kim's Tarts is that each bag (individually sealed with a cute little ribbon) contains 3 tarts and they only cost $1.50! How's THAT for a bargain!? Since this is the first tart I've tried from my order, my impression of this company so far is positive. Some of my tarts were veeeeeeeeery strong upon opening the package, so I am airing them out a bit before I melt them. Give them a try! Kim is really fast at correspondence, too, and you can tell she really cares about her customers. She even included 5 free sample tarts in my order! How sweet was that?! :)

Anyways, my weekend wax review will be up later tomorrow, so expect lots of minty goodness to help combat this cold. Have a good weekend, all, and don't forget to take advantage of the Buy 2 Get 2 free sale at Yankee Candle, if you choose! The code is: 2FREE.


Kim's Tarts Sinus Relief
Cold Rating: 5.5/10, it doesn't actually smell that strong upon cold throw.
Lit Rating (for these tart reviews, substitute LIT for WARM): 6.5/10, super strong, refreshing, true sinus relief
Throw Rating: 6.5/10, very powerful in one room, but does a good job of not traveling too far outside
Overall Rating: 6.5/10; this one truly lives up to its name. It's enjoyable and helpful, but I'm not sure I'd love it if I wasn't sick...although, that might defeat the purpose, right?! Definitely medicinal, but somehow cooling at the same time.


  1. Love the idea of this scent!

    1. A lot of vendors online are now making sinus relief, as well as stress relief! :)
