In case you missed this series back in 2008 on US PBS, believe it or not. Did make me a bit envious of Batelli back then...

Vagina Candles? Maybe she just doesn't know how to spell 'Vegan' and her spell checker messed her up.

Does this mean her head is in the right place, or she just skipped past an orifice?

The only thing I find offensive about this overpriced scented candle is the weaponized narcissism behind it, and that the media have promoted it so heavily.

She is very much into bogus scientific claims, snake oil products, and generally talking bollocks, some links.

It should be surprising that in health, an area that has regulation, that obviously made up claims are readily made by people selling stuff is so common, shows there is no hope for unregulated areas.

'The origin story of the name is pretty goopy: Paltrow and perfumer Douglas Little were working on a new fragrance and Paltrow suddenly said, "Uhhh...this smells like a vagina." '

Reminds me of WW2 radar on RAF bombers:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/H2S_(radar)

See 'Etymology'. Someone said about it's delay into production that 'it stinks' and so it was christened H2S - Hydrogen sulphide - rotten eggs or stink bombs.
