How to help 2 year old son with smell sensitivities? It's hindering potty training.

"I have 4 sons and am a Kindergarten teacher.  My youngest is 2 and vomits and gags at 'poo', if he sees it or smells it.  This is making toilet training impossible! He wants to use the loo and copy his 4yr old brother, but starts gagging the minute he goes near the loo. He also gagged when I was teaching him to blow his nose and showed him in the tissue.  I have tried putting all kinds of scented things and odor neutralizers etc., but it's as if he has such a weak stomach for yucky stuff. How do I help him?"
