MCO's Holiday Gift Guide: Scentsy


*I received a Scentsy Warmer and Scentsy Bars for review in exchange for my honest thoughts and opinions*
Scentsy began with a simple idea;  safe, wickless alternatives to scented candles.  The idea took off and  quickly developed into one of the most successful direct selling companies in the world, giving people everywhere the opportunity to be their own boss.  In 2004, Scentsy joined the Direct Selling Assoication and enrolled its first Independent Consultant.  They have now grossed more than one billion in revenue in just over 8 years and is now offered throughout the United Stats, Puerto Rico, Guam, Canada, and Europe. Scentsy products include decorative ceramic warmers that melt scented wax with the heat from a small light bulb, scent bars, room spray, air fresheners (for cars), and many other fantastic products!

I was thrilled to work with Scentsy for our Holiday Gift Guide!  Christmas is my favorite holiday and I couldn't wait to get my home smelling like Christmas with their holiday collection. We worked with Scentsy Consultant Sara Demick, and she was nice enough to allow me to pick a warmer and 3 bars to review. For the warmer I chose the Premium Palette, and for the Scentsy Bars I chose, Silver Bells, Snowberry, and Eskimo Kiss.


The Palette Warmer comes with the base of the warmer, the warming dish, and a 25 watt bulb.  Scentsy is a safer alternative to candles, there is no flame, smoke, or soot to worry with, instead the wax is melted using the heat of a low-watt bulb.  Just plug it into an outlet and turn it on with the switch that's on the cord and enjoy hours of fragrance.  Scentsy has a huge variety of warmers to match any d├ęcor or theme, they also have smaller plug-in warmers that would work great in a bathroom. 

I think its great that the warmers don't require any type of flame because I can be a little on the paranoid side when it comes to candles. I'm always worried that I will forget to blow it out or it will get knocked over and cause a fire. I blame my paranoia on my mom because we had a house fire when I was little, and after that my mom became very cautious of anything that was a fire hazard from candles, matches, heaters and just about anything else you can imagine. Growing up with her always warning of fire danger, I have realized that I have become the exact same way.  This warmer is the perfect solution for me to keep my house smelling wonderful.



Scentsy has an enormous selection of scents and it's so hard to only choose a few because they all sound like they will smell great!  They also have room sprays, lotions, soaps, sanitizers, and much more in the same great scents.  I love all of the holiday scents that I received, but if I had to choose I would say that Silver Bells is my favorite, it's the perfect combination of sweet and mint with a hint of vanilla, it's strong enough to keep the house smelling great without being to over powering.


When you have your warmer all plugged in and are ready to melt the wax just break off one or more sections of the Scentsy Bar, place it into the warming dish, and turn it on, the wax slowly melts and fills the room with an amazing fragrance for you to enjoy.  The great thing about the warmer is that you can leave it on for days at a time, so you can have your house smelling good 24/7.  I haven't turned mine off yet!  If you decide you want to change out the scent before the warming dish is empty, all you have to do is completely melt the wax in the dish, pour the melted wax into its original packaging, and wipe out the dish with a paper towel while it's still warm, then you can add a different fragrance to the dish.



A Scentsy Warmer and Scentsy Bars would make a great gift for your mother, sister, or aunt for the holidays!  Who doesn't love their home to smell amazing?  I would recommend Scentsy, their product is well made and their scents last until the wax is gone, unlike some of the other products on the market that only smell good for the first hour or so.  They have such a wide selection of warmers and bars you are sure to find the perfect gift for anyone on your list.

  15. I'm still new to the Scentsy world, but I am slowly becoming addicted! I was lucky enough to be gifted scents and two warmers. It was such an amazing surprise from my family. They bought us the US Navy warmer, with a bunch of scents. My favorite from the ones I was given was black raspberry vanilla. I love christmas and can't wait to get a few winter scents to enjoy this holiday season.
