Warm up your winter with Scentsy (giveaway)

 

Before I had kids, I had scented candles all over my house.  Now that I have two little girls literally running laps around each other, having a flame out in the open seems like a recipe for disaster!  I was missing that cozy feeling that a great scent adds to our home and  Scentsy Independent Consultant Shelly was kind enough to introduce me to Scentsy as an alternative.

 

Scentsy uses “decorative ceramic warmers designed to melt scented wax with the heat of a light bulb instead of a traditional wick and flame”.  There are full-sized warmers, mid-sized warmers for smaller rooms, and plug-in warmers for those places that don’t have a lot of counter space.  I was really hoping to try my Boho Chic Scentsy plug-in warmer in our master bathroom but the builders installed the outlet too close to built-in medicine cabinet so I put it in the kitchen instead.

As you can see, the warmer itself isn’t overly large, which is perfect in a busy place like the kitchen.  I really put it to the test the night that it arrived as I was making tuna noodle casserole, which is tasty but not terribly pleasant to smell afterwards.  I tried a section of the White Tea & Cactus bar (which is my favourite Scentsy bar to date and is described on the Scentsy website as  “a clean, crisp, and refreshing floral mix with green notes“) and I am happy to report that it eliminated all of the food odors while leaving a fresh scent in the air.

Because our house is very open concept, I have the Full-Sized Zingana Warmer on our wine rack in the dining room, which is basically in the middle of the entire house.  This means that with one Scentsy bar, I can get my entire house to smell amazing!  My oldest daughter’s favourite scent so far is Dulce de Leche (“a silky-sweet golden custard of sugary caramel, rich cream, and just a touch of warm vanilla“) and every time I have it on she asks what I’m baking.  Thankfully she isn’t disappointed when I tell her it’s just a yummy smell!

Scentsy is more than just warmers now.  There are the most adorable Scentsy Buddies, which are stuffed animals that have a zippered pouch to hold a Scentsy pack, and they also have a Layers by Scentsy line. Layers by Scentsy are a way to take your favourite Scentsy scents with you throughout the day through bath, body and laundry products.  I have been using the hand cream in the Luna scent (“white florals — jasmine, sweet pea, and freesia — juicy berries, and sandalwood shimmer like moonlight“) and I find that it is a very moisturizing cream – just what I need in this cold snap that we’re in right now – with a subtle but pleasant scent.  I’m definitely a Scentsy convert!

    I don’t think scentsy is safe for kids either. it is hot wax that can spill and make a big mess

      All of my Scentsy warmers are kept far out of reach of my children, just as I would a candle. However, I feel that it’s much safer to have no flame vs a flame! As well, the wax is melted into the warmer so there isn’t any dripping wax that could cause further damage to a hand or furniture.

      Because the wax is warmed with a low watt light bulb the wax does not get hot. One can stick their finger in it and it will not burn. And, if the wax does spill, because it is paraffin wax, it cleans up pretty easily.
