Scentsy Review and Giveway ends 10/15

Until I had kids I loved candles. I always had at least one burning somewhere in the house. Then I had Willow and realized just how unsafe it was to have open flames in the home. One wrong move and she could catch the house on fire or seriously injure herself. So to keep my family safe away the candles went. Honestly having 3 kids in diapers I’ve started to notice a bit of a funk no matter how often I take the trash out, something that regular air fresheners just couldn’t fix. Just when I thought I was doomed to have stinky rooms forever I was introduced to Scentsy by Barbara Leef.

Scentsy is a wax warmer system that uses a low wattage light bulb to melt the scented wax cubes.  With dozens of warmers and over 80 different scents to choose from there’s something for everyone. Plug in warmers are perfect for bathrooms and small areas, midsize warmers are great for bedrooms and full size warmers  are  great for covering larger areas like living rooms and kitchens.  Scentsy also offers a variety of other products including Scentsy Buddies for kids, scent circles for your car and solid perfumes.

We received a mid size warmer and 2 scents to try. We chose the Nantucket warmer (which is now retired and no longer available for purchase) and the Hemingway and Autumn Sunset scents to try.  When our products arrived they were safely packed, taking great care to insure that nothing arrived broken or melted. The scents were even placed inside of a cooler bag and packed with ice packs. 

Within 10 minutes of plugging our warmer in our hall was filled with the scent of Autumn Sunset. Autumn Sunset is a mixture of apples, pumpkins, spices and leaves and is perfect for fall. The other scent we chose was from the Scentsy Man collection, which features scents that will keep the man of your life happy while still allowing you to have a home that smells good. The man collection is more earthy smells, Hemingway is a mixture of apples, woods, sandalwood and cedar which my boyfriend absolutely loves.
 Scentsy claims that all of their products are child friendly and will not burn your child. Call me crazy but I felt I really needy to try it out. If this product is in reach of my daughter, I wanted to make sure that she really wouldn't be hurt by it in case she knocked it over. I actually poured some of the melted wax directly from the warmer onto my hand and I'm pleased to report that I'm burn free! Scentsy claims are true! The wax that they use to do your eyebrows in the salon is actually hotter then the wax Scentsy uses in their warmers.
