Some Scentsy FAQ

How long does a Scentsy Bar last?
A Scentsy bar lasts 60-80 hours of warming time. So, if you keep your warmer on all the time, you may need to change your scent every three days. If you turn it off at nights or when you are not occupying the space that it is in, it will last longer. You do not have to use the whole bar at once. Break off a couple of pieces and warm them and just change them out when the smell is gone. Some smells last longer than others. It just depends on how strong the scent is in the beginning. The Scentsy brick is equal to six Scensy bars. So you can get roughly 360 hours of smell out of a brick. Lasting scent also depends on the strength of the fragrance and how strong you personally like your scents. Open Windows, humidifiers, and house fans may alter the time the scents last. The Scentsy wax does not evaporate. Once all the smell is gone, you simply pour it out and put more in the warmer.

What kind of wax is used to make Scentsy Bars & Bricks?
Scentsy uses a food-grade petroleum based wax. Scentsy chose this wax because of its superior scent loading ability, melting point and firmness. Scentsy looked at their waxes, but could not find a good quality vegetable based wax that held the scents. The type of wax we use is a not an issue, with regard to the chemicals released while burning any traditional wicked candles, including tea lights. Scentsy Warmers only warm the scent out of the wax - the wax remains in the warmer, thus there is no danger of chemicals being released into the home. You will end up with a piece of non smelling wax that you dispose of and replace with a new Scentsy candle bar. No wick, no match, no flame, no soot, no smoke, and no wax evaporation!

How do you clean a Scentsy Warmer?
While the wax is warmed you can pour it out into a disposable container, back into its original container, or simply wipe the warmer with some paper towels. You may also place the warmer lid in the freezer for 5-10 minimum and the wax should easily slide out.
