Scentsy Saves Lives

Posted by Erich Trapp on September 12, 2012

Do you enjoy a delicious-smelling house but are afraid commercial products aren’t good for you or your animals?

Everyone enjoys a fresh, fragrant home, but who knows what goes into those commercial products you plug into the wall. Even if you read the ingredients, you’re still clueless about the effects it will have on health, hearth, and home.

Here’s a smartsolution. Scentsy! And thanks to our great friend Deana K. Wehr who is sponsoring this terrific fundraiser, you can enjoy these great products and know that 20% of your purchase will go to 2 Million Dogs!

Take a look at this Snap Shot warmer – one of the many holders they offer.  You can showcase your beloved pet and have a safe product that will envelop your home with your favorite fragrance.  And 20% of your purchase goes to help 2 Million Dogs and their mission to discover the common links between canine and human cancers and the causes of these cancers.

Now, we’re not rushing the holidays, but this looks like the perfect gift for just about anyone. A gift for someone special AND a gift to 2 Million Dogs. That’s a deal!

Here’s some more about Scentsy and why it’s a perfect product for your home year-round:

What are Scentsy Candle Warmers? Scentsy wickless candles are highly scented, flameless, and safe to use just about anywhere.  Scentsy candles are designed to quickly fill your home with beautiful aromas.  Using a low wattage light bulb to melt highly scented wax, this system is easy and simple to use. Scentsy’s beautiful ceramic warmers house a low-watt light bulb that slowly melts the Scentsy Bar or Scentsy Brick, filling your home with one of more than 80 distinctive, long-lasting scents.

Scentsy has 80+ long lasting, highly scented Candle Bar fragrances. Scentsy currently offers dozens of beautifully hand crafted ceramic electric candle warmers, room sprays, Scent Circles (hanging fresheners), Travel Tins, Scent Paks, Fragrance Foam (non-drying, alcohol free hand sanitizer) and even scented stuffed animals called Scentsy Buddy’s.

How safe are Scentsy Candle Warmers? Scentsy wax won’t burn away (putting dangerous chemicals into the air) like regular candles. The low watt light bulb is warm enough to melt the wax but not hot enough to burn you or any curious kids or pets, should they touch it. The wax gets just above body temperature. You’ll have a beautiful decorative Scentsy warmer that you can reuse instead of a sooty black candle jar when you’re done enjoying one of Scentsy’s 80+ long lasting scents. Scentsy was created by two moms who were looking for a safe alternative to candles.

Do Scentsy products contain phthalates? No. Scentsy products are made with fragrance oils that do not contain phthalates.

Why doesn’t Scentsy use soy or vegetable-based wax candles? Vegetable-based waxes do not produce a quality candle bar. Scientific research suggests there are health risks associated with burning any type of candle, be it soy or petroleum. Scentsy warmers melt wax without the use of a flame, which means no chemicals or pollutants are released to contaminate lungs, walls, or furniture.

What makes Scentsy different from other candles? Scentsy Bars are much safer than traditional “wicked” candles. The type of wax used is softer than jar candles, which allows for a lower, safer melting point and better fragrance throw. The fragrance in Scentsy wickless candles also contains three times the amount of oil used in regular “wicked” candles.

So there you go. Something new, delicious, and safe  for your home – a great gift – and the additional benefit of knowing that 20% of your purchase will go to 2 Million Dogs.
