$50 Scentsy Gift Certificate Giveaway And Jane Warmer Review!

When the fabulous Scentsy Consultant, Sharon, emailed me last week about reviewing one of her full-size Scentsy warming products and scent bars, it was as if Christmas up and decided to come to my house all over again. 






I can't even begin to tell you how long I've been dying to hop on the ol' Scentsy bandwagon and Loyals? I am SO glad that I did. Shame on me for not buying into Scentsy earlier! It's amazing!


Scentsy began with a simple idea—a safe, wickless alternative to scented candles—and quickly grew into one of the most successful direct selling companies. This wickless concept was born when two stay-at-home moms began selling decorative warmers designed to melt scented wax with the heat of a light bulb instead of a traditional wick and flame.


As a SAHM, becoming a Scentsy consultant would not only be a great way to earn a little extra income, but it's an ideal job for a SAHM like me because you can work as much or as little as you want to, depending on your goals for your business. Click here to read about how to become a Scentsy Consultant. It only costs $99 and during the month of February, new consultants will receive both Fall and Spring testers and catalogs in their start up kit- that's a huge advantage for joining during this particular month.


With a wide variety of warmers to choose from, I knew I had some decisions to make! Perusing Sharon's online catalog, it was so difficult to narrow down my choices! Full-size warmers, mid-size warmers and plug-ins, Oh My! And such a variety of designs and finishes. I could have easily picked a warmer for every single room in my house that would have matched the decor perfectly! Finally, I ended up choosing the Jane full-size warmer. Isn't she beautiful?




With a rambunctious toddler and another baby on the way, we're all about safety here in Casa de Carrots and I'm so happy to be making the transition from traditional flame candles to the Scentsy warmers that use a 25 watt bulb to heat, melt and distribute delicious scents throughout the house. 


Speaking of delicious scents, I was lucky enough to bring home 3 of Scentsy's yummy fragrances. Choosing scent bars was a whole other affair. It literally took me over an hour (and a multitude of Twitter advice from other Scentsy-lovers) to narrow down my options. From delicious Corner Cafe flavors to fragrant Fall and Winter flavors to even Romance and Spa flavors, Scentsy offers fragrances for every palette. 


I ended up choosing Welcome Home, Cucumber Lime and Sunkissed Citrus and as soon as that package arrived on my doorstep I didn't waste a minute tearing into it and setting it up. Within minutes I had my warmer assembled and was reading the easy-to-decipher directions on how to break off a small cube of the scent bar and toss it in the top tray of the warmer. 

Before I knew it, my entire first floor smelled deliciously of warm cinnamon and spices. If you must know, I chose to melt Welcome Home first and I am so glad that I did. When my sister-in-law stopped by the house later that afternoon, she was immediately struck by the yummy scent and wondered what I had spent all morning baking! Ha! 

As for long-lasting durability? I have been burning the same two tiny cubes of scent bar for more than four days now and there isn't an end in sight! To change scents, all you need to do is heat the wax, pour it back into the container is arrived in and store in a cool, dry place! Then you'll be able to burn those same cubes at a later time! Incredible. 

Lastly, one of the other great things about Scentsy that both Sharon and I like is that twice a year, Scentsy comes out with a special warmer or Buddy and net proceeds from the sale of that product go to a charity. For example, right now Sharon is offering Sasha the Bear. Proceeds from Sasha sales go to Ronald McDonald House Charities. As consultants, Sharon writes, "we are encouraged to give more than we take. I am proud to be a part of such a company."


Here's where it gets even better, Loyals. Sharon is graciously offering one of my readers a $50 gift certificate to shop her Scentsy Catalog. Be sure to use the Rafflecopter Giveaway Entry system below to log your entries for the giveaway! Good luck! And many, many thanks to Sharon for reaching out to me and making me a major Scentsy Fan!

** Edited To Add: Congratulations, Randi on winning the $50 Scentsy Gift Card giveaway! I've gone ahead and contacted Sharon with your email address and she'll be getting in touch with you shortly! Before I go, I wanted to fill you all in on some new and fabulous things happening around the Scentsy World! 

Scentsy announced 2 new product lines that will be available March 1:

1. Sincerely Scent: an online greeting card store featuring over 150 original, customizable, SCENTED greeting cards. Customers will be able to order cards online and have them delivered to the recipients' addresses without buying stamps or going to the post office.
You can personalize cards with a customized message, your favorite photo, a digital signature, AND a scent sample from the Scentsy Favorites collection. That's right--each card will be mailed with a sample infused with Scentsy fragrance, allowing the recipient to experience Scentsy as soon as they open the envelope.
 
2.  Layers by Scentsy: personal AND laundry care products infused with your favorite Scentsy fragrances and custom-designed for Scentsy. We worked with the best suppliers in the industry to bring you personal care products you will LOVE.

With Layers by Scentsy you can create a fragrance ...experience that is uniquely yours, and layer your life with fragrance. 
  
New personal care products include: Shower Gel, Shower Cream, Body Lotion, Body Butter, Hand Cream, and Body Spray. 

In addition to world-class personal care products, two new laundry care products allow you to extend your Scentsy experience to your clothes. Washer Whiffs is a perfume for your laundry. Simply add it to the wash cycle with your detergent to scent your clothes. Then, toss your laundry into the dryer and add a Dryer Disk. The Dryer Disk is made of plastic infused with fragrance that has anti-static properties. It will scent up to 15 loads of laundry.  

And last but certainly not least, a new brand: Velata, a Scentsy, Inc. Brand 

On May 1, Scentsy will launch Velata, a fun, easy-to-use, and absolutely DELICIOUS fondue experience. 

You already know that warmers + wax = a simple system. With Velata, warmers + CHOCOLATE = a simple, incredible, EDIBLE party experience.

We flew to Belgium and met with the oldest and most prestigious chocolate manufacturers. We selected the highest quality, purest chocolate that would melt perfectly and taste divine. We will launch with velvety milk chocolate, creamy white chocolate, decadent dark chocolate, and indulgent caramel milk chocolate. Velata chocolate will come in convenient 6-ounce pouches with pour spouts. Simply microwave, pour into the Velata dish, dip your favorite foods, and enjoy.

There are 14 Velata fondue warmers to choose from that range from contemporary to traditional design. Velata fondue warmers use the same technology as other Scentsy warmers. Simply plug them in and their 25-watt bulbs will keep Velata chocolate at the perfect temperature. Velata fondue warmers will sell for $40 (USD) / $48 (CAD); chocolates will sell for $7 (USD) / $8 (CAD).

The difference between Velata fondue warmers and Scentsy warmers lies in the silicone dish. It's a simple dish that has a patent-pending technology to keep the chocolate at exactly the right temperature. A metal plate wrapped in silicone absorbs the heat from the 25-watt bulb. The silicone keeps the heat from escaping, prevents the chocolate from scorching, and can go from the refrigerator to the microwave to the dishwasher with ease. You can't do that with a fondue tower, or a traditional fondue pot!

Picture a quick, delicious, family-fun night. Or a romantic date night with decadent treats. Or the "grab some chocolate and a warmer" addition to a potluck. Just imagine the possibilities!
