We are celebrating 15 years of the Scentsy company, so i wanted to share 15 amazing facts about Scentsy Wax.
15 facts you might not know about Scentsy Wax
- Our wax is edible! Yes Scentsy makes its Wax Melts from food grade wax, the same wax the food industry use it for shining fruit and sealing cheese – nom nom!
- If accidentally eaten Scentsy wax is 100% safe. In fact we once ate it – yes the peppermint rush bar smells like After Eight mints and tasted minty too!!
- We make Scentsy Wax Melts from food grade paraffin wax. We use it because it reaches melting point at a very low temperature, so you don’t need a candle to burn it! Is paraffin wax harmful? No way – Scentsy is 100% safe candle company and so is its wax. Read more here from CEO, Orville Thompson, about why Paraffin Wax is the perfect for Scentsy Wax Melts.
- In a Scentsy warmer the wax heats to just above body temperature, about 56 Deg C. Thats a huge temperature difference to candles which burn at 1500 Deg c!
- These low temperatures mean our wax will not evaporate in a Scentsy warmer
- A lack of evaporation means no wax particles are released or breathed in
- No evaporation means you only breathe the fragrance oils
- Zero evaporation also means no toxins or carcinogens are released by the Scentsy wax and warmer
- The Scentsy System is a safe candle thats low temperature and no flame! This means our wax can legally hold four times the amount of fragrance oil that wick-ed candles can. And that means any candle – doesn’t matter how expensive they are under REACH standards for europe they should contain more than 5% fragrance oil if being burnt!
- Low temperatures and no wick/flames also means zero risk of burns from using any Scentsy Wax and Warmer
- Super low temperatures means our wax sets hard on contact., making spills easy to clean up. Need to clear wax out of a carpet – learn how here.
- Our wax comes in over 115 different fragrances right now – see the full range here. This includes our limited edition Disney Scentsy Bars, Marvel Scentsy Wax and even Star Wars Wax Melts.
- Our wax is always on special offer with our Buy 5 get 1 free offer!!! Get your bulk bars here.
- When used in a Scentsy Wax Warmer our wax bars will fragrance for 8- 10hrs per cube. Personally i find that estimate on the very low side…i get over 24 hours from one fruity cube and if using a heavy woods fragrance 3 plus days. Furthermore, I find one bar of eight cubes will last me three times longer than a well known jar candle would (and they do 100 hours).
- Our wax bars hold 8 cubes at £7.25 a bar that works out at just 90p a cube or 9p per hour!
And finally, our wax is reusable! Simply pour back into the packet and swap and change your fragrance over and over before the scent is finished. However I personally never reuse the wax. It’s so cheap to buy with our combine and save packs so I don’t need to be a stingy anymore!
