Scensty is a way of fragrancing your home without the worry of candles – no flame, no soot, no toxins and no worrying if you blew it out!
The Scentsy warmers are ceramic or porcelain warmers with a hotplate which gently warms your choice of fragranced wax at around 56 degrees to release the scent, leaving the wax behind. As the wax does not burn, no harmful chemicals are released.
We are a direct selling and party plan company and offer great benefits to all who buy, host and join!
Here are some FAQ’s and answers from our Head Office:

Our distinctive Scentsy Warmers melt specially formulated wax with the heat of a heating element, and enhance your home with more than 80 fragrances safely, with no flame, smoke, or soot.
Where are Scentsy Warmers made?
Each warmer is designed by Scentsy and manufactured in China to our specifications.
What are Scentsy Warmers made of?
Each warmer is made of high-quality ceramic or porcelain.
How do I use a Scentsy Warmer?
1. Plug the Warmer Cord into your warmer.
2. Place the dish on your warmer, plug it into the wall outlet, turn it on, and place one or more sections of a Scentsy Bar into the warmer dish.
What is Scentsy’s replacement policy?
Scentsy products come with a three-year Replacement Warranty for manufacturer’s defects. A customer who has a product that is damaged in shipping from Scentsy, has a manufacturer’s defect, or has an indication of an electrical issue may return it for repair or replacement through their Consultant or directly through Scentsy by calling Consultant Support and following the Returned Merchandise procedure.
Can I purchase a replacement dish for my warmer?
Scentsy offers a variety of replacement dishes. Please see “Replacement Parts” on a Scentsy Fragrance Consultant’s Personal Website (PWS) for the replacement dishes currently available.
What is a Scentsy Bar?
A Scentsy Bar is a block of fragrant wax in eight break-apart sections.
Where are Scentsy Bars made?
Scentsy manufactures all wax products at its headquarters in Meridian, Idaho, USA.
What kind of fragrance oils are used in Scentsy Bars?
Scentsy uses both synthetic and naturally-derived fragrances oils to achieve the highest quality and longest-lasting bar. Synthetic oils are used for several reasons, including:
When using natural oils results in unrestrained use of limited or endangered natural resources.
When it isn’t possible to derive the natural oils from nature. For example, synthetic oil is necessary to reproduce lily of the valley because fragrance cannot be extracted from this flower through typical extraction methods.
When it is cost prohibitive to acquire natural oils and would preclude Scentsy from offering particular fragrances without increasing the price for customers.
What kind of wax is used when making Scentsy Bars?
We use a custom, high-quality paraffin wax blend, designed to give you long-lasting fragrance, and selected for its scent loading ability, melting point, and firmness.
Why doesn’t Scentsy use a soy- or vegetable-based wax?
Soy- or vegetable-based waxes can produce a quality wicked candle, but not a quality wickless candle.
How many cubes of wax do I place in my warmer?
One or two cubes should be plenty. Once the scent runs out, replace the wax with fresh cubes.
How do I clean the wax out of the warmer?
While the wax is melted, pour it out and wipe the dish clean with a paper towel.
Are Scentsy Bars safe?
Scentsy Bars are safer than wicked candles because no flame is required for the wax to melt and release fragrance. Since the wax is warmed and not burned as with traditional candles, no harmful chemicals or pollutants are released into the air. With Scentsy, there is no flame, smoke, soot, or lead.
Do Scentsy Bars contain harmful phthalates?
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 to make fragrances last longer. DEP is thoroughly tested and is consistently regarded as safe for use in fragrance by several government bodies including the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the European Union Scientific Committee on Consumer Products (SCCP). Scentsy follows all safety standards regulating the use of DEP set by the International Fragrance Association (IFRA).
Do Scentsy Bars contain any nut or mineral oils? Do they contain Bisphenol A (BPA), gluten, lead, egg, or formaldehyde?
Scentsy Bars and fragrance oils do not contain any kind of nut or mineral oils. They are BPA-, gluten-, lead-, egg-, and formaldehyde-free.
How should I store my Scentsy Bars?
Store your Scentsy Bars in a cool, dry area of your home, away from direct sunlight. If you store bars next to a stove or in direct sunlight, the top fragrance notes may be released from the heat.
How come I can’t smell my favorite Scentsy Bar anymore? Have you changed your ‘recipe’?
Scentsy Fragrance has never changed the ‘recipe’ of our bars, and each bar contains the same amount of fragrance oil. Occasionally, you can become immune to a scent or fragrance note by simply warming it too much. For example, if you warm cinnamon fragrances all year, your nose may actually begin to filter out the smell of cinnamon. By switching out your Scentsy fragrances regularly, you can prevent this from happening.
I placed a new cube in my Scentsy Warmer, but I can’t smell it. How come?
Each scent has a different level of scent throw depending on the fragrance oil composition. Factors like weather, humidity, ventilation systems, and elevation can alter scent throw.
Weather and humidity: At higher temperatures, water molecules are more likely to go into the vapor phase, so there will be more water vapor in the air. When fragrance and water molecules bind together, the water weighs fragrance down, creating less diffusion of the fragrance into the air. When there is less moisture into the air, fragrance has better diffusion and can be perceived as stronger.
Environment: Large rooms and ceiling fans, and tile versus carpeted floors, can affect how scent dissipates, as do open windows and ventilation systems.
Everyone has a different sense of smell, so scents will smell stronger to some than others.
Certain fragrance notes can be perceived as stronger than others based on their molecular structure and your sense of smell. For example, citrus notes are top notes, typically recognizable, and can be considered stronger because your nose smells these notes first. Compared to musk notes which are a base note, aren’t typically identified easily, and are used to create harmony within a fragrance. You could expect citrus dominate fragrances to be perceived as stronger than musky ones.
