Do you know anyone who doesn’t own some kind of candle or wax burner?
I know way before I started selling Scentsy, I had a candle in every room in the house. I love to walk into a room and be greeted by a new fragrance that smells strong and fresh, or super fruity. I used to buy the large jar candles from the discount shops, but I would keep them burning all day and night so they never lasted me to long – totally my fault. I should have used them a few hours a day really.
I dread to think of the dangers I put myself in, as I would leave my candles unattended. I certainly feel super lucky that we never had any accidents thats for sure.
What's the difference between a candle and wax melts?
A candle is made up of wax with some kind of wick, made to be burned by lighting the wick. As the wick burns down, the fragrance from the melted wax is evaporated into the air. You will notice that when the candle is almost done, not a lot of wax remains, just the part that the wick cannot reach.
The danger of the evaporation is that the particles are being ingested by anyone who is in the room whilst the candle is being burned. It is very important if you burn a candle or wax melt that you know what ingredients are included.
A wax melt can still be made to be burned, but rather than having a wick, a wax melt can be placed over a tea light burner – the same as a candle, if you are still burning over a flame, you are still ingesting the wax as it evaporates. Or you can chose to use a wax warmer, dependent on the type, so long as it’s warming the wax at a lower temperature than boiling point, and the wax does not evaporate, then you will no longer be ingesting the wax melts as they warm.
For me, that’s the huge difference, having no evaporation and no flame.
What is the strongest Wax Melt?
The answer to this question depends on how you will use the wax melts.
Because fragrance oils are flammable, wax melts made to be burned can only use a certain amount of oils, meaning a less fragrant wax. However, wax melts made to be warmed, and never to be used over a naked flame can be packed full of essential oils making a wax melt that is full of fragrance.
Scentsy wax bars are made to be warmed in Scentsy warmers. This means we know the exact temperature that the waxes will be warmed and carry out fragrance tests to ensure we are offering a highly fragrant, long lasting and much safer wax melt.
We are so sure that our wax melts and wax warmrs will work in perfect harmony with one another that we offer a lifetime warranty on all our electrical products.
Scentsy Wax Melt FAQ
Only the best thing ever! A Scentsy Bar is a block of fragrant wax in eight break-apart sections. When warmed in a Scentsy Warmer, the wax releases amazing fragrance into the air without flame, smoke or soot.
We use a custom, high-quality paraffin wax blend and fragrance oils, both synthetic and naturally derived, to make the best, longest-lasting bar.
Made in the U.S.A., baby! Scentsy manufactures all wax products at our headquarters in Meridian, Idaho.
Scentsy Bars, and the clamshells they come in, are designed to look like our Classic Curve Warmer — one of the original Scentsy Warmer designs. Plus, it’s just more fun than a square.
Hard work and lots of love! We create unique fragrance formulas for each Scentsy Bar using the scent pyramid. Each Scentsy Bar typically includes 30-60 ingredients to get every fragrance just right!
To keep things fresh. We make changes each season — what’s hot in June might not be popular in December. But whenever a fragrance becomes unavailable, there’s a chance we’ll bring it back with the next catalog.
And when a fragrance just isn’t selling well, we replace it with something new. If you have a favorite scent you can’t imagine living without, order it through Scentsy Club and we’ll keep making it for you as long as it’s in your subscription — whether we discontinue it down the road or not.
A good rule of thumb is to use your bars within a year to ensure a top-notch experience, so rotate older bars to the front of your stash to make sure you use them first.
Extreme variations in temperature can cause the fragrance oils in your bar to separate and bead up on the wax surface, but don’t worry! When warmed, the oils should blend back in just fine.
There are many factors to consider here, like a scent’s ingredients, your preferred fragrance intensity and the environment where you warm your favorite bar. But know this: We design Scentsy Bar fragrances to last, with the utmost quality standards.
Sometimes, you can become immune to a scent by warming it too often — it’s called olfactive fatigue. We offer a ton of options, so avoid this problem by switching out your Scentsy fragrances regularly.
It’s not recommended, because we design our bars to have a low melting point and only use low-watt bulbs or heating elements in our warmers. Who knows what the other guys might be using?
The easiest way is with Cotton Cleanup. All you do is place one pad in the melted wax in your warmer and within seconds, the cotton absorbs the wax — up to four melted Scentsy Bar cubes! In a pinch, regular cotton balls or paper towels also do a good job.
If the wax has cooled and hardened in the dish, turn on your warmer for a few minutes to soften the wax and gently slide it out in one piece.
Because not every fragrance can or should be simulated with natural ingredients
Nope! Scentsy Bars do not contain or release harmful phthalates. A small percentage of Scentsy Bar fragrances contain extremely low levels of non-harmful diethyl phthalate (DEP), commonly used in fragrances to help blend ingredients and make them last longer.
