What is a Scentsy Warmer?
Scentsy started as a scented wax company, providing plug-in warmers that would melt wax over low heat. That same concept still exists today, only the product line has expanded exponentially! Scentsy has a variety of different warmers, in several different sizes: full-size, mid-size, and wall-plug-in (similar to Glade Plug-in). The waxes change by season, with favorites like Black Raspberry Vanilla remaining a constant in the catalog! Each January, Scentsy brings back 20 favorite scents from previous catalog years in their Bring Back My Bar special.
The Scentsy warmer plugs into a wall and is turned on with a switch. A small lightbulb is placed in the warmer with a tray on top. The lightbulb produces both light and heat, giving the warmer the elements of a candle without the risk of a fire! Pieces of the scented wax bar are broken off and placed in the tray to be melted. As they melt, aroma fills the room!
Are Scentsy Warmers candles?
Scentsy warmers are not candles in the traditional sense. Traditional candles have wicks and melt wax using an open flame. Scentsy’s candles were developed to be a safer alternative to candles, using a low-watt lightbulb to heat the wax enough to allow it to melt. Our wax is developed to have a lower melting point, requiring less heat and less fire danger! While they may not be the same candles you are used to, they perform the same function. They provide a nice ambiance – the light from the lightbulb is dispersed in such a way to be appealing, and the wax melts the same as a candle, releasing fragrance into the air!
Does Scentsy just sell Candles?
Scentsy sells a variety of fragrance products, including Scentsy warmers, scented bars and wax, a bath and body line consisting of bath tablets, body lotion, body butter, shower gel, room spray, and more, and stuffed animals that are accompanied by a scent pak to make them smell.
