Scentsy Warmers – About Scentsy Candle Warmers – Pros and cons

Scentsy makes what they call wickless candles. They are also called candle warmers or wax warmers. Instead of using a flame, they use electricity. The heat needed to release enchant scentsy warmer fragrance comes from a small light bulb.

If you are thinking of purchasing one for your home, here are some pros and cons for you to consider.


Safe heat. The warmers get warm, but not hot. The small light bulb releases only enough heat to melt the wax. Even after it has been on for several hours, it is still safe to touch and hold with your hands. So, if you have small children or pets, you won’t have to worry about them getting burned. Also, because it does not get too hot, it will not cause a fire by tipping over.

Saves money. You end up saving money compared to using candles. The scented wax can be used over and over again until all the fragrance is released.

Various styles. The warmers that Scentsy makes come in all styles and designs. They also make the warmers in several different sizes. They have medium size ones that are only 5 inches high and large ones that are 6 inches tall. For bathrooms, they also make the plug-in variety for bathrooms.

80 different scents. Scentsy offers 80 different fragrances for you to choose from.

Custom scent. Because you use squares of wax, you can mix and match squares from different scents to make your own custom smell to suit your likes.

Easy to switch. It is easy to switch to whatever aroma you want just by pouring out the melted wax and placing new solid squares in. You don’t even have to turn it off to do that. Scentsy makes their warmers with a removable dish that you can simply lift up.


Not essential oils. For those allergic to synthetic smells, then this probably wouldn’t work. The reason they don’t use essential oils is that they are expensive and they don’t last very long. But, because of this, if you are allergic to perfume, then this product is not a good choice for you.

Strong scent. If you are looking for a very faint smell, then this isn’t for you. Just one medium warmer will fill a 1, 200 square foot home after just one hour! It can be somewhat overpowering. It will definitely overpower any other smells in your home.

So, look over the previous list of pros and cons and compare it to your needs and what exactly you want for your home.
