Top 15 Scentsy Facts

#1: What Is Scentsy?

In days past, candles were used both as light and to provide delicious fragrances in homes and offices. Using a new technique, that dangerous flame was discarded for a wickless candle that would give the home a nice fragrance without the wick and flame.

Simply using a warmer, wax that is infused with your favorite odor is melted and the smell fills the area.

#2: How Scentsy Came To Be

In 2003,Colette Gunnell and Kara Egan who were sisters in law developed Scentsy in Salt Lake City, Utah. The women sold their wax burners at trade and home shows and did quite well.
