In my pre-child life, I loved to have candles all around my house. I loved how they smell, I loved how they looked, and I liked that I could add a little design flare to my house with different holders and colors.
Enter children. And there went my candles. (Along with all of my other beautiful vases, and crystal, replaced with the standard mom decorations of stuffed lovies, pacifiers, and sippy cups.) Don’t get me wrong, being a mom is the best thing that has ever happened to me, but I was overjoyed when I saw a friend of mine from high school posting on Facebook about her new Scentsy business.
I wasn’t familiar with Scentsy, but I knew that Diana had 3 kids of her own, so it must be a safe alternative. Here’s what I found out…
With Scentsy warmers and wax you have a safe, easy and affordable way to “burn”your candles. Scentsy’s wax was designed to melt at a very low temperature using a 25 watt light bulb inside our large warmers, which is hot enough to melt the wax, but not hot enough to burn anyone. (Mid sized systems use a 20 watt light bulb, plug-in systems use a 15 watt bulb). Because there is no flame, you can use Scentsy products at home, work, schools, hospitals, nursing homes, banks, libraries, doctor offices, and anywhere else you can’t take a normal candle. Plus, there are over 50 different styles of warmers and over 80 scents to choose from. (My personal favorite is the blueberry cheescake, but at only $5 a bar, you can bet I’ll be trying all 80+! :))
Diana was kind enough to give my family this gorgeous Silvervine Warmer to try out, and I can’t tell you how many compliments I have received on it. It gives off a perfect amount of scent without the soot, lead, and evaporated wax that you get with so many traditional candles.
Not only does this make me feel like my house is healthier, but Scentsy products do not bother my allergies at all. And of course, because my little Bean – the ultimate trouble maker – wanted to “help” me write this review, she managed to climb on to our tv stand, then use that to climb onto the ledge between the kitchen and the living room and stick her hand right into the Scentsy wax. She was shocked, but not hurt at all. Trust me, with this little animal in my house, I need the safest products possible, and I am officially in love with Scentsy!
Scentsy also offers a whole new line of personal and laundry care products called Layers. You can find all of your favorite Scentsy scents in hand creams, body lotions, shower gels, washer whiffs, dryer disks, and MORE!
