So I finally did it. After much writing, encouragement from various friends (thank you all for the push!), guest blogging and appearing on the TODAY Show, dun, dun, dun…. I started my own blog! I figured that this was as good a time as any to start my blog as I came home today to a box on my doorstep from a company called Scentsy.
What is Scentsy you ask? This is exactly the question that I asked my longtime friend Lauren when she started selling this wonderfully scented product. I decided to host an online Scentsy party for my friend and I purchased a warmer and 6 scents for myself to see what the hype was all about.
I was very excited to receive the items and I quickly took the warmer out of it’s box, screwed in the included light bulb, placed the warmer dish on top, picked my first scent to try – cinnamon vanilla, plugged it on and wahlah! about 10 minutes later our whole first floor was filled with a very yummy, yet not too overpowering scent. I checked the warmer a few hours later and the 2 scent cubes that I used had started to melt into liquid form, but our home was still smelling great!
Now many of you may be asking what is the difference between Scentsy and plain old candles, well Scentsy offers people a safe way to enjoy many different kinds of fragrances without any flame, smoke or soot. The Scentsy system provides a safer and better alternative to burning wicked candles, at a great price. Scentsy also offers plug ins, laundry products, Scentsy Buddies and many more items. There are dozens of unique warmers in various sizes to choose from, along with over 80 scents.
For my first order I chose: Cinnamon Vanilla (vanilla with a little spice), Clean Breeze (freshly washed laundry), Happy Birthday (fresh baked vanilla cake), Iced Pine (Christmas tree), Perk Me Up (Starbucks/ coffee), and Jet Set Go (the beach, an island, vacation). At first sniff from within each package, I thought that they all smelled fabulous and appropriately titled.
So, I am only approximately 4 hours into my first Scentsy experience, and I have to say that I have already thrown out my old sooty, can’t-reach-the-wick-with-the-match any longer candles, and have informed Lauren that she has converted me into a Scentsy addict!
Please check out the photos of my new Scentsy warmer, scents, and even a photo of my old sooty candle (yuck)! No more possibilities of leaving burning candles on in my home (my husband is cheering at that one!), just plug in, pick out and place my scent cubes, then just sit back, relax and smell the good scent!
