Scentsy Candle Story
Scentsy “Makes Perfect Scents”. We are pioneering the move away from the smoky, sooty candles of today to safe, healthy, fun and creative ways to bring the scents that make us happy into our lives. We offer over 80 high quality fragrances delivered in a variety of ways. Our flagship product is the Authentic Scentsy Bar, an impressively fragrant wickless candle bar that is warmed in a warmer rather than burned with a flame.
Scentsy is a fairly new company and was started in Centerville, Utah, in July 2003, by Colette Gunnell and Kara Egan. Colette and Kara were two stay at home mom's looking for a safer alternative to candles. After some research and investigation, Scentsy was born! Within that first year, Scentsy was purchased by Orville Thompson, relocated to Meridian, Idaho, where it continues to grow very rapidly. Colette and Kara, remain very much a part of the company, as well as two Scentsational consultants, and two Scentsational stay at home moms.
Scentsy offers over 40+ authentic Scentsy warmers and over 80+ scentsational scents. Authentic Scentsy warmers and candle bars are only available through your Scentsy consultants. Scentsy is truly scentsational, and they make perfect scents.
Each year thousands of homes are damaged or destroyed by burning candles. The enthusiastic response we receive from our customers, our consultants, and more particularly fire-fighters, reflects the nationwide concern over the devastation burning candles can cause. This was our initial motivation – to create a safe alternative to burning candles. Our passion has grown from offering a safe alternative to offering a better alternative. Going wickless has allowed us to offer the public a better, more cost effective method of scenting their world.
How the Scensty Candle Works
A secret combination of ingredients is used to create a pool of melted wax, which is transformed into a wickless candle bar. Only the finest scented oils are hand-picked to give an array of aromas. The melted wax is poured into reusable containers for easy storage.
The wax is poured in an assortment of candle warmers, giving the consultants party testers, basket testers and of course, Scentsy Bars to share with their customers. Room sprays and car candles are also produced in the warehouse.
Scentsy hand packs each order, ensuring the correct items come right to your door in a timely manner. By using UPS, your order can be tracked the moment it leaves the warehouse. Orders are typically shipped directly to the hostess, or can be shipped direct for a minimal cost.
Our hand-picked staff adds a little bit of Scentsy Spirit into each hand-packed box. Scentsy believes that every Scentsy consultant, hostess and customer is part of the Scentsy Family.
