Some Scentsy Bar Wax FAQ

Q. Can Scentsy wax be used in a Non-Scentsy Warmer?

A. Of course, but I wouldn't recommend it. Scentsy's warmers are made specifically for the Scentsy wax, they are set to reach a perfect temperature, they get just warm enough to release the scent into the air without releasing any of the chemicals with it. This is one reason Scentsy Warmers and Scentsy Bars are much safer then regular Candles.

Q. What kind of wax is used when making our Candle Bars?

A. 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!

Q. What is food grade petroleum wax?

A. Scentsy’s food grade petroleum wax is the same wax they spray on apples in the grocery stores, to give them their shine.

Q. What type of oil does Scentsy use in their candles?

A. Scentsy uses key fragrance oil which is the highest grade of oil before processing.
