We all know it was clearly established, almost back at the beginning of this blog, that I have “a thing” for candles. I love the way they look, the way they smell, the way they can make a room homey and inviting. Even better than candles, though, I love my grandbabies! They are everything that puts a smile on a grandma’s heart. That’s why I was so excited to be introduced to Scentsy’s Independent Consultant, Laura Walters, a Blogmania “Christmas at Home: A Celebration!” sponsor. Scentsy is everything that makes a candle wonderful, EXCEPT a flame, which is dangerous for curious little baby fingers. Don’t get me wrong, they still get warm and could certainly be tipped over just like a candle, but the reason I think that is less likely, is because it doesn’t draw the toddler’s attention the way a flame does. Plus, they are beautiful in any decor. There is literally some style available that will fit the way you like to decorate whether you live in a dorm room or a mansion, whether your tastes lean more to the modern or the antique, shabby chic or sleek. There is a perfect “Scentsy fit” just for you!
Laura is an independent consultant for Scentsy and she generously supplied me with The Malta Full-Size Scentsy Warmer and three wonderfully fragrant Scentsy Bars. The kit I received included the warmer, three Scentsy bars (Red Candy Apple, Coconut Palm & Tranquil Waters), a spatula and an instruction/info/catalog booklet. I was so tickled with how the earthy, warm tans and browns fit with my color scheme and I loved that it was only a matter of minutes before my house smelled as though I had been baking with sweet apples. What a warm and welcoming fragrance!
Once I really stopped to consider the price of candles that melt away so quickly, I realized what a good investment a Scentsy warmer really is. When I have a candle whose “look” I love, I hesitate to burn it, because I like the way it fits in a room’s decor. But with Scentsy, I get to keep the decorative effect and “burn” it, too. 🙂 The Scentsy warmers have a small-watt light bulb inside that warms the removable top-plate on the warmer. One small, pre-cut cube of the Scentsy bar filled my entire room with fragrance and I have re-used it multiple times with the same results. Each Scentsy bar I received had eight of those little pre-cut cubes. That is going to last a long while! What a good value at only $5/bar. And you can’t begin to imagine how many different fragrances you get to choose from! Their current fragrance categories (with several fragrances listed in each) are: Bakery Collection, Spring & Summer Collection, Favorites Collection, Romance Collection, Scentsy Cafe Collection, Scentsy Man Collection (mmm…hmmm, they even have the guys covered), Spa Collection and the Tropical Collection.
It is going to be SO easy to start collecting these great pieces of home decor. They’re beautiful and they’re versatile. You couldn’t beat them for a wedding, housewarming or Christmas gift. It would definitely be on the recipient’s list of most favorite things received! If you’re like me and can’t wait to add one or two of these pretty warmers to your home’s decor, visit Laura’s Scentsy shop and browse through all the wonderful selections.
Another fun thing I didn’t know before, is that you can have a Scentsy party! Invite your friends to your home to experience these great products and you could earn some free and/or discounted product for yourself. And if you had considered a business of your own, Scentsy can make that a possibility, too. Whether you want to throw a party, start an exciting new career, or like me, just love adding beautiful things to your home’s decor, Scentsy has something to offer you. I can’t recommend them enough and I know whichever you decide, you won’t be disappointed!
