This is why and how the MLM company called Scentsy has made such great strides to be a trusted and recognized brand in the world of network marketing.

Are you familiar with Scentsy? Have you used any of their products?

To help you know more about this company, I am doing a Scentsy review by giving you the top 15 cool facts.

If, after reading this review, you want to try Scentsy products or possibly start your own home based Scentsy business, the company website will be linked in the reference section.

Now, let’s learn more about Scentsy.

#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 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’s developed Scentsy in Salt Lake City, Utah. The women sold their wax burners at trade and home shows and did quite well.

In 2004, Orville Thompson was at a home show and when he learned of the product, he made an offer to purchase the business from the women which they accepted.
