I have always been a fan of candles. Of course, being a parent, safety comes first and having that flickering flame to interest a child just doesn’t pan out for a candle lover.
For a few now I have heard about Scentsy, but just recently got the chance to check out these safe candle alternatives.
Using a low-watt bulb, a Scentsy Wax Brick or bar is then melted, spreading the selected fragrance. We live in a two bedroom apartment and our Scentsy mid-size warmer has given enough fragrance that it easily spreads through most of our apartment. Scentsy creates a unique way to personalize your home with a variety of warmers to match any decorative style. Whether you are decorating for the holidays and looking for a holiday warmer or you want a design that complements your home no matter what the season, Scentsy has it.
When I started looking at Scentsy, I was amazed at the selection. We have several black-trimmed furniture pieces so I decided on the Raven Mid-Size Warmer. The warmer has a high-gloss glaze that gives it a beautiful detail. With over 80 Fragrances to choose from as well, I was in complete awe and no idea where to start! I picked out three fragrances-Eskimo Kiss, Autumn Sunset, and Twilight. Overall, Eskimo Kiss was definitely my favorite-just enough light scent to warm you up :). The Autumn Sunset is a perfect for fragrance the fall weather that has begun. The Twilight is a very bold scent so it was a bit too much for our apartment.
Using Scentsy is simple-turn on the bulb, break off a section of the Scentsy brick and wait for it to begin melting. The wax stays warm but not hot enough to burn a child. I stuck my finger in to test it out myself and was okay. The warmer does get a little hot after it’s been on for awhile but I could still pick up the top section and manuever it where I needed to. Want to switch scents? Simply pour the wax back into its container if there is still fragrance, wipe down the warmer with a paper towel and take a section off the brick you want!

As a fellow Mom and her own business owner through Scentsy, she’s got the extra time to be with her children while enjoying a product she loves-Scentsy. As I said this was my first actual experience with Scentsy and Taryn answered questions that I had and shared information about the latest Scentsy happenings.
I will definitely be purchasing more from Scentsy knowing that I don’t have to worry about a flame for the girls to be curious about or the chance of getting hurt.
