Scentsy Review and Giveaway

Winner Comment #45 - 45. traciet said...My fav is the zebra warmer with luna and thunderstorm for my hm office!

Being pregnant, smell is a huge factor for me. It determines where I can go, how I feel while I am there, and what I can eat.

Sometimes I don't mind my enhanced sense of smell. My husband knows that certain things make me sick, and is more willing to do gross things - like change diapers - to help me out. Other times, I absolutely hate it. When I was pregnant with Kik my husband was making me dinner - broccoli cheese soup. It was very nice of him, and usually he is a great cook. But the cooked broccoli smelt so bad that I couldn't force myself to eat it. And I haven't been able to eat cooked broccoli ever since.

Recently Stacy Mayo - an Independent Scentsy Consultant - offered me the chance to review some of her Scentsy Products, and I jumped at the chance! Anything that would allow me to mask some of the weird smells in my house is definitely a plus right now!

My mom has Scentsy Warmers in almost every room of her house, but as I've never had one personally, I didn't know what to expect. Basically Scentsy Warmers are Ceramic Candle Warmers, that plug in anywhere in your house. There is a light bulb in the base of the Warmer, and a bowl on top to slowly melt the candle wax. All of the products are wickless and flameless, which is a definite plus for me as I have a history of setting my hair on fire.

They come in 3 sizes Large, Medium, and Plug in -

and there are over 80 scents and fragrances available!

Because it was a bit more manly I decided to review the Morocco Scentsy Warmer.

Right away I loved the look of it, and how well it went with the accessories I already have in my home.

I was a little but worried as I didn't know what scents to expect and smell is definitely an issue right now.  We received a pack of the Orange Dreamsicle and the Peach A La Mode, and I couldn't be happier.

While they both smell absolutely wonderful the Peach A La Mode is my absolute favorite. It really smells like peach without being too strong. Love it!

To use the bars, all you have to do is break off a portion of the bar and put it right into the top of the warmer. The light bulb slowly melts the wax, and diffuses the scent throughout the room. Each scentsy bar costs only $5 and can last anywhere from 50-80 hours. And if you get tired of a scent and want to switch things up, the melted wax can actually be poured right back into the original container to be used at a later date! (I tried it, it works!)

As a mom, the thing I love the most is that they are safe. The products contain no lead, and even though the wax would be hot if it was spilled, there would be no flames.

Something else from Scentsy that I absolutely love is their new Scentsy Buddies.

These little guys are for ages 3 and up, and you actually just put the scentsy bar right inside.  With one of these little guys I could bring a toy along for my "kids" and have something that smells sweet just in case:)

To Buy - Most of the Plug in Warmers retail for just $20.00, with the Mid-Size ones retailing for $25.00 and the full size for $30.00. Right now you can get an additional 10% off when purchasing online at Stacy's Scentsy Shop. You can also email and she'll tell you about more of her current specials!
