Scentsy Review & Giveaway!



I had the fantastic opportunity to be sent a Scentsy plug-in and brick of Sticky Cinnnamon Bun melts to review!! I am a candle lover, always have been so I was really excited to check out this company I had never heard of before. Scentsy is a company that offers home parties, internet parties, or book parties and they are have been around for about 5 years now.
I have had my plug-in for about a month now and I really am loving it! The smell is amazing!!
Please hang with me throughout this review...It's kinda long but I am really excited to share it with and because I knew nothing of how these great things work I wanted to share what I learned from the wonderful consultant, Heather, that I have been working with!

Scentsy a great company that offers a wickless candle, using a warmer that is powered by a light bulb, so it is very safe around children and pets, and you don’t have to worry about lead, soot, or flames like you do with regular candles – and Scentsy is less expensive!
Scentsy provides superior fragrance without sacrificing health, safety or style! We have over 80 scents to pick from!! Our wax bars have 50-80 hours of smell time to them when warmed. And over 50 warmers! Scentsy also have Plug-ins, Room Sprays, & Car Candles!

Plug-ins do tend to get pretty warm to the touch compared to the warmers.  There are a few different options to make the change go smoothly.
If you want to save the wax:
·    Turn off the plug-in and let the wax completely harden.
·    Take a little spoon, toothpick or harder small spatula and pop out the wax, put in a baggie for later use.
-    Turn on your plug-in and let the wax soften for about 5 mins, the pour back into the mold if there is still scent left, if not then pour into the garbage wipe clean with a tissue then put a new scent in.
·    Save the wax to make fire-starters for the wood stove.
If you do not want to save the wax:
·    Leaving the plug-in on take a paper towel, tissue, or toilet paper and soak up the wax, through in the trash and put in fresh wax.
·    This will also help your trash smell nice.

Scents are easy to switch.

The wax will not evaporate from the warmer/plug-in, when you notice there is no scent left pour it out, wipe it with a tissue and put another cube in.

Different Ways to Change Wax
1. While wax is melted- pour back into bar container.
2. Turn off warmer- wait 5-10 minutes for wax to start to harden. When it reaches a “gummy” state- peel it out of the dish top.
3. Use a paper towel to soak up wax and discard.
4. Turn off warmer- wait until wax is hard.
Use a clean Popsicle stick to pop out the wax.

If wax still has scent left- save in a baggie or mold back into bar container until ready to use again. Always clean dish between scents with a paper towel. If most of the scent is gone, discard or pour into a fun candy mold and harden in freezer for a few minutes. Place these in a drawer, cabinet or locker.  The also make cute ornaments! 

NOTE: Putting “new” wax into “old” wax is not a good idea. This will dilute the scent of the “new” wax.

The warmers do plug into the wall and they have a switch on the cord to turn them on or off. The plug-ins do tend to get warmer than the warmers because it is smaller and more compact so less room for the heat to flow. I can put my hands on the warmers when they are on, on the other hand I turn off the plug-ins before I change them as they do get a little warmer.

Where to put your warmer in your home or office?

To obtain maximum use of a scent, a place near a good air flow will carry the scent through your home. Placing a warmer too close to an air draft from a ceiling fan, right next to a window or vent will slow down the warming process. The wax warms at a low temperature and may not scent as well if a draft cools the wax before it can reach ideal temperature. One option is to open a window in a room but place a warmer close to a doorway/entry to that room. The air flow should carry the scent without cooling the wax.

Place the warmers/plug-ins out of the way so they don't get spilled, (if they did happen to get spilled the wax will not burn you as it only heats a little bit above body temp). You can stick your finger in the wax and not get burnt. I always suggest placing the plug-ins in a plug-in that is up from the ground or if that is not possible place it in an area that is not high traffic.

Try mixing 2 or 3 scents to create your own Scentsational Scent!

Scentsy wax and warmers are designed to work together and only with each other. If the wax is used in any other container other than a Scentsy warmer, we cannot guarantee that the scent will last as long or the safety either. Most warmers on the market burn at a much hotter temperature causing the scent to evaporate quicker. Other brands of wax and tarts do not usually work well in a Scentsy warmer as they need a much higher temperature to melt.

Room Spray Tips
ONE SPRAY GOES A LONG WAY!!!
Room Sprays can be used to freshen up lots of things! 
Car Candles ~ Tennis Shoes ~ Raincoats ~
Silk Flower Arrangements ~
*As with any room spray containing scented oils, they can sometimes make the dyes in fabrics run, check for colorfastness on an area that is out of sight!*

Car Candle Tips
~ Hang one near a laundry basket to help with the odor ~ Hang one in the coat closet during RAINY/SNOWY months to keep away the musty mildew smell ~ Ideal for teenagers to hang in lockers at school, with sports gear or gym bags ~ Leather Car Candles are great for golf bags ~ Put them in your trash can, between the trash liner and the can ~ Place one near the litter box ~ Drop one in your vacuum bag ~ Mail a car candle to a loved one for an unexpected treat ~
*Make sure your car candle hangs freely and does not touch anything that the scented oil can ruin!*
