What is Scentsy?
Candles cause an estimated 15,600 house fires, so if you love the smell of candles but don’t feel safe with candles in the house, you can still get the scent and feel of a burning candle with their Scentsy’s wickless candles. Founded by Heidi and Orville Thompson in 2004, Scentsy provides a safe alternative to wicked candles but they still create an opportunity for others that feels like family.
Scentsy is an international leader in home and personal fragrances and currently employees more than 100,000 independent consultants. They offer stylish and customizable products that are sold in 11 different countries. All wax products are manufactured in its headquarters in Meridian, Idaho.

If you can’t smell your favorite Scensty fragrance anymore, you can occasionally become immune to a scent or fragrance note because you have warmed it too often. It is recommended that you switch out your Scentsy scents often so you can prevent this from occurring.
Scentsy warmers are leadless, wickless, flameless, and smokeless candles. Warmers are ideal for people with active children and animals because they bring the scent of candles without having to light one. They come with a wide variety of styles such as modern, classic, nautical, rustic, feminine, vintage, artsy and athletic.
Scentsy Diffusers is an ultrasonic nebulizing diffuser. It uses cold-mist technology to diffuse scent around the room without involving heat. Scentsy even has a wide variety of interchangeable shades so you can switch up your style.
Scentsy wax bars are another unique product offered by this company. The bars, or bricks, are warmed and melted in their special warmers by using a light bulb instead of a flame. The bulb is 23, 20, or 15-watt which melts the wax just above body temperature, so even if you do touch the melting wax, you won’t get burned!

Is Scentsy Safe?
Scentsy waxes are a food-grade petroleum-based wax because it can hold the scents well. The wax is the same wax they spray on apples to give them their shine. Their products all comply with EPA regulations, the International Fragrance Association’s Code of Practice, the European Union’s REACH requirements, and the California Air Resources Board regulations.
Scentsy warmers only warm the scent out of the wax; the wax will always remain in the warmer and there is no fear it will release chemicals into the air. Unlike ordinary candles, Scentsy warmers don’t emit anything into the atmosphere, so there won’t be any lead or soot buildup in your home. After the Scentsy wax no longer has a fragrance to it, you can safely dispose of it and replace it with the next scent.
How Long Do Scentsy Paks Last?
A Scentsy Pak should last at least 30 days. They cost $7 each and are small enough to be easily stashed in any drawer.
How Much are Scentsy Wax Bars?
The wax bars cost $6 each. To release the scent, you gently warm the highly fragrant wax bar. Since it is slowly warmed and not burned, it holds more fragrance than the average candle. The bars will last between 50-80 hours, but it will depend on the strength of the fragrance and how strong you want the smell to be. Pop a cube or two in the Scentsy Warmer and let it slowly melt down and release the scent. Once the scent is over, replace the cubes with new ones.
To help keep the scent longer, you should store the bars in a cool, dry area away from direct sunlight. If they are stored in direct sunlight or next to a stove, they could be releasing fragrance from the heat without you realizing it.
