What is a Scentsy Bar and where is it made? A. Scentsy uses a custom, food-grade paraffin wax blend selected for its superior scent loading capability, melting point and firmness. The Scentsy wickless candle bars are small blocks of scented wax that come in eight break-apart sections. Because of the wax’s superior scent load capasity, Scentsy Bars can produce some of the most vibrant fragrance possible. all Scentsy wax is manufactured at Scentsy’s headquarters in Meridian, Idaho, USA and in France. The type of wax we use is a non-issue, with regard to the chemicals released while burning. We 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. Q. What temperature does the wax melt at? A. Scentsy Bars in Scentsy warmers melt at 125 degrees Fahrenheit – the temperature of a typical paraffin cosmetic dip. Q. What type of oil do you use in your candles? A.

Synthetic or Natural Oils? Q. Do I use a whole candle bar at a time? A. Candle Bars come in eight, break-a-part sections. Choose your favorite candle bar scent, break off one or two sections and place in our warmer. Next turn on your warmer…relax and enjoy. The only thing warming out is the fragrance. Q. What makes Scentsy different from other candles? A. The type of wax used allows Scentsy Bars to hold more fragrance oils, resulting in a better fragrance “throw.” The amount of fragrance load for scentsy wickless candles is 15 – 18% oil compared with 5% for regular “wicked” candles. Additionally, Scentsy Bars are safer than “wicked” candles because no flame is required for the wax to melt or to release the fragrance. Q. How do I clean the wax out of the warmer? A. While the wax is warmed and melted pour into a disposable container and wipe the warmer with some paper towels or napkins, or place warmer lid in the freezer for 5-10 minutes and the wax should slide out. Then just pop in your favorite scent. Q. Do Scentsy products contain phthalates? A. NO! Scentsy products are made with fragrance oils that do not contain phthalates! Q.
