Scentsy: Review and Giveaway

hypothesis A Scentsy Candle Warmer with scented wax bars will be a great way to make our home smell sweet without worrying about the girls being near an open flame like most traditional candles.

materials

One Classic Collection (Scentsy Plum) Full Size Warmer, three Scentsy bars in Apple Pie, Cinnamon Bear and Sugar Cookie, and one living room in desperate need of “freshening up!”  About Scentsy:

scentsylogo “Scentsy is a direct selling, wickless candle company headquartered in Meridian, Idaho. The company is owned by Orville and Heidi Thompson and sells its products through a field sales force of 40,000 independent sales representatives known as Independent Scentsy Consultants, who market and sell Scentsy products through home parties.

Scentsy sells wickless candles, ceramic warmers and home-fragrance products.  A wickless candle, called a Scentsy Bar or a Scentsy Brick, is a highly fragrant wax bar that is warmed to release fragrance into the air. Because the wax is gently warmed rather than burned, it can hold more fragrance oil than a traditional candle. And, because there is no flame, there is no smoke, soot or lead. Scentsy wickless candles are a safer alternative to traditional candles.”

results I have always loved candles.  Before having children, our home was filled with them!  But I quickly learned that kids are attracted to candles like a moth to a flame!  The candles were removed and placed only on high shelves and lit only on special occasions.

I have heard of Scentsy, but have never had the opportunity to try them until now!  I received the Classic Collection Full Size Warmer and three different scents to try.  I was very impressed with the style and quality of the candle warmer!  It fit right in with my decor.  I picked three scents from the Bakery line and immediately knew I wanted to try Apple Pie first.  After installing the light bulb in the warmer, plugging in the warmer and turning it on, I placed two sections of the bar into the warmer and waited for the magic to happen.

IMG_0959

Within only a few minutes, the wax was heated by the lightbulb and my room smelled heavenly!  I was actually pretty surprised that the Scentsy warmer system allowed more fragrance to be released into the air than my traditional candles.  Because I was so happy with the system, I took out the catalog and started looking at my options.  I could not believe how many styles, colors and scents are available.  From mid size to plug-ins, Milano to Doodlebug, there is a warmer for everyone and every style!

The only downside to the Scentsy warmer is that it must be placed near a plug which limits your flexibility.  But, I’m willing to work with that!

hypothesis

I am a new fan of Scentsy!  I definitely want to try out the plug-in system next.  The full size warmers would make a great Mother’s Day gift at only $30!

The generous people at Scentsy have given me one Full Size Classic Collection warmer (in cream) to give away to one lucky reader!
