Are there essential oils in Scentsy?

No, Scentsy products are created without the use of essential oils. Scentsy’s products are infused only with fragrance oils, wickless candles, essential oils, and diffusers. The fragrances are created from both natural and synthetic components.

Some of the key components to Scentsy products are the wax, the warmer and the wickless design. As with all Scentsy products, the fragrances used are always phthalate-free, and never contain paraffin or lead-cored wicks.

This non-toxic approach helps make Scentsy a safe and enjoyable environment for your home and family.

What are Scentsy oils made of?

Scentsy oils are made with 100% pure essential oil blends that are carefully crafted to create the perfect balance of aroma, scent and performance. These essentials are derived from flowers, fruits, seeds and other natural sources, and are combined with intensely fragrant natural and synthetic ingredients to create a unique and pleasing aroma.

These oils are carefully tested for purity and are free from phthalates, parabens, formaldehyde, and other petrochemicals. Scentsy oils are also alcohol-free, using sustainably-sourced plant-based ingredients to make sure they last up to 30 days, delivering a long-lasting and powerful scent.

Can you use any essential oil in a Scentsy diffuser?

No, you cannot use any essential oil in a Scentsy diffuser. Scentsy diffusers are made to be used exclusively with Scentsy essential oil replacements, Scentsy fragrance oils, and Scentsy Pod oils. Using any other non-Scentsy oil can damage your diffuser, void the warranty, and cause potentially hazardous situations.

It is important to only use Scentsy-approved oils in your Scentsy diffuser. If you would like to use essential oils, you may want to consider a different type of diffuser, such as an ultrasonic diffuser or a cold air diffuser.

These diffusers are designed to handle essential oils and can provide safe, effective diffusion of essential oils into the air.

What else can you put in a Scentsy warmer?

In addition to Scentsy wax bars and wax cubes, you can also put tarts, odor-neutralizing discs, or fragrance oils in your Scentsy warmer. Both tarts andscentsy wax bars come in a variety of delicious scents and last up to 30 hours.

If you’re looking for a longer-lasting solution, Fragrance Oils can last up to 120 hours and come in a variety of flavors as well. Odor-neutralizing discs offer a more versatile way to use a Scentsy warmer as you can use them with any scent that you choose.

In addition to these three options, you can also use a tea light warmer, which is a great way to add a little bit of ambiance to the room.

Can I add essential oils to my wax melts?

Yes, you can add essential oils to your wax melts, however you need to be very careful when doing so. Essential oils are very strong and will burn off quickly when heated, which makes them unsuitable for use in wax melts that don’t require heat to release the scent.

You will need to use wax melts or candle tarts with a wick or an electric wax melter in order to use essential oils in wax melts. When adding essential oils, it’s best to mix them with a carrier oil and add them slowly, a few drops at a time, allowing the wax to absorb the oils evenly.

It’s also important that you use only therapeutic grade essential oils for safety reasons. Additionally, never use synthetic oils as the burning process will cause the synthetic oils to release toxic chemicals into the air.

Is it OK to heat essential oils?

It is generally not recommended to heat essential oils. While some aromatherapy enthusiasts believe that heating essential oils can bring more benefits, most believe that diffusing essential oils is the safest way to experience their aromas.

This is because heating essential oils can cause them to evaporate too quickly or at a hotter temperature than desired. If a heat source is too hot, it can potentially damage or change the composition of the essential oil’s chemistry.

Heating oils too quickly can also strip them of their health benefits, as well as reduce the overall scent. Additionally, depending on the type of heating device used, essential oils may have unpredictable reactions and may even become a fire hazard.

For these reasons, it’s safer and more beneficial to diffuse essential oils instead of heating them. Diffusing oils is a great way to disperse their aromas evenly, keep their therapeutic benefits intact, and be able to enjoy and feel the full range of their scents.

Can you put Vicks Vaporub in a wax warmer?

No, you should not put Vicks Vaporub in a wax warmer. Vicks Vaporub is a topical ointment that is used to relieve sore muscles and congestion. Wax warmers generate heat and using Vicks Vaporub in a wax warmer could melt it, risking burns to the skin or even toxic exposure as inhaling the vapors from a melted Vicks Vaporub could be dangerous.

Furthermore, Vicks Vaporub should not be used for anything other than its intended purpose – if you wish to add a pleasant aroma to a room, simply apply it to your chest or neck, or purchase an aromatherapy product that is safe to use with a wax warmer.

How many drops of oil go in a Scentsy Diffuser?

The number of drops of oil that go into a Scentsy Diffuser will depend on the size and type of Scentsy Diffuser that you have. The general rule of thumb is to add 3-5 drops of essential oil to a full water tank of your Scentsy Diffuser.

For example, if you have the Scentsy Ultrasonic Diffuser, you would need to fill the tank with 4-6 ounces of cold water and then add 3-5 drops of essential oil to the water. Additionally, some diffusers, such as the Scentsy Go Diffuser, have a scent pad in the bottom of the diffuser and you would only need to add 1-2 drops of essential oil directly onto the pad for a more subtle scent.

For best results and to ensure the scent of your essential oils is not overwhelmed, it’s important to stick with the manufacturer’s instructions and only use the specified number of drops of oils in the diffuser.

Are Scentsy scents safe for dogs?

Yes, generally speaking, Scentsy scents are safe for dogs. The scents used in Scentsy products are non-toxic and, when used according to the product’s instructions, will not affect the health of your pet.

However, as with any product that releases an aroma, there are precautions that pet owners should take to ensure the safety of their animals. First, never leave your Scentsy wax warmer running unattended or overnight, as leaves off an open flame can be dangerous and could lead to accidental fires.

Second, be sure to keep the wax warmer out of the reach of animals, as there have been reports of cats and dogs attempting to lick or eat the wax. Finally, discontinue use and seek medical attention if your pet is showing signs of distress from breathing in the scent.

Can you use Scentsy oils to make candles?

No, Scentsy oils are not designed for use in candles. Scentsy oils are specifically designed for use in our electric fragrance warmers, which are used to dispense the fragrances without the need for a flame.

Rather than candles, our warmers use a small, light bulb to heat the wax, which produces a heavenly and clean scent that can last up to 60 days with just one cube of wax. While our oils may appear to be like wax, they are not suitable to be used in candle-making and should not be used in this way.

Can u make wax melts with essential oils?

Yes, you can make wax melts with essential oils. Wax melts are small pieces of wax that are melted to release scents into the air. To make wax melts with essential oils, you should first choose a wax to use for the melts.

Many types of wax will work for this, such as soy wax, beeswax, or paraffin wax. You will also need a mold to shape the wax into your desired shape. Make sure that the mold is heat-safe before using it.

Once you have the ingredients, you can start making the wax melts. Heat the wax slowly, in a double boiler, until it is completely melted. Then, add a few drops of your chosen essential oil and stir gently.

Pour the melted wax into the mold and allow it to cool and harden. Once it is cooled, you can pop the melt out of the mold and enjoy the scent!.

How much essential oil is needed for wax melts?

The amount of essential oil needed for wax melts depends on several factors, including the amount of wax being used, the type of wax, and the desired aroma strength of the finished wax melts. Generally, it’s recommended to use between 1-3% of your total wax weight in essential oils.

For example, if you’re starting with 8 ounces of wax, use approximately 4 teaspoons or 18 ml of essential oil. The best way to determine the quantity of essential oil needed for your wax melts is to experiment and adjust the ratios to get the desired aroma strength.

What oils are used for wax melts?

When it comes to wax melts, there are a number of different types of essential oils that can be used to add fragrance to the wax. Depending on the type of wax melt you are wanting to make and the desired fragrance, there are many essential oils that can be used to achieve the scent desired.

Some of the more popular essential oils used to make wax melts include: lavender, jasmine, rosemary, peppermint, lemon, and sandalwood. Depending on your aims when it comes to wax melts, these essential oils can also be combined with other fragrances or carrier oils to achieve a more complex or desirable scent.

Natural carrier oils that work well with wax melts include: jojoba, sweet almond, argan, and coconut.

Using essential oils along with carrier oils to make wax melts is a great way to add not only fragrance but also extra healing benefits to your wax melts. However, even when using essential or carrier oils, always be sure to refer to the safety guidelines and instructions regarding their use before adding them to your wax melts.

Can you make your own scented wax melts?

Yes, you can easily make your own scented wax melts at home. All you need is a specialty wax such as soy wax or beeswax, a combination of candle fragrances, wickless candle warmers, wax melting containers, and molds.

First, determine the type of wax you’d like to use. Some have a higher melting point than others and will result in a firmer or harder wax melt. Prepare your melting pot and place your wax in it. Heat the wax until it is completely liquid.

Add your chosen combination of candle fragrances to the wax while stirring. Once the desired scent combination is reached, let the wax cool and thicken a bit. Take the wax out of the pot and pour it into the molds evenly.

If desired, add an embedded item such as a dried flower into the wax. Let the wax cool for about 12 hours before removing it from the molds. Now, you can enjoy your handmade scented wax melt with a wickless candle warmer!.

Is it cheaper to make your own wax melts?

Making your own wax melts can be a great way to save some money in the short term, but it may not necessarily be the most cost-effective choice in the long run. The cost of supplies to make your own wax melts may be cheaper upfront, but purchasing premade melts often comes with more convenience and allows for faster turnaround time.

The cost of supplies to make wax melts may include wax, scented oils, and other materials, so if you’re not familiar with the process of candle-making you might end up paying more in the end. Additionally, depending on the volume of wax melts you plan on making, you may run into further costs associated with purchasing wax or supplies in bulk quantities which can add up quickly and make the total cost more expensive.

Buying premade melts is often a more convenient and quicker option, not to mention you won’t have to deal with the mess associated with candle-making. If you’re looking to save money long-term, however, making your own wax melts can be a worthwhile endeavor.

Why do my homemade wax melts not smell?

There could be a few reasons why your homemade wax melts may not have much of a scent.

The most likely cause is that you are not using enough scent. The most common rule of thumb is that you need to use roughly 10% of your total wax weight in scent. Be sure to check the fragrance oil supplier’s recommended usage rate for the type of wax you are using, as the amount of fragrance often varies depending on the type of wax you are using.

Another reason could be that you are using a low-quality fragrance oil. Be sure to use a fragrance oil that is meant for use in candles and melts. Not all fragrance oils on the market are designed to be used in this type of product; some are designed to be used in other soap and body care products and, as such, do not perform well in wax melts and candles.

It is also possible that you are using a fragrance oil that may be overpowering, or a scent that is weak and evaporates quickly. Many fragrance oils contain different notes that contribute to their overall scent, but it is possible that the top note, which is the first and strongest scent to smell, can be too strong.

Conversely, the base note in a fragrance oil, which stays longest on the skin, may be weak and evaporate faster when used in wax melts. Be sure to find a balance between top and middle notes to find the ideal scent for your wax melts.

Can you remelt wax melts to add more fragrance?

Yes, you can remelt wax melts to add more fragrance. The best way to do this is to place the wax melts into a double boiler, or a metal bowl placed over a pot of boiling water. Heat the wax slowly and carefully stirring occasionally.

Do not heat the wax directly in a pot on the flame as the wax can catch fire. When the wax has melted thoroughly, you can add a few drops of essential oils or fragrance oils, depending on the type of wax melt you are using.

Stir until the fragrance is blended in, and pour the melted wax into a mold or wax melt warmer to use.

How do you use fragrance oil in a wax warmer?

Using fragrance oil in a wax warmer is easy! All you will need is fragrance oil, your favorite wax warmer, and a lighter or candle. First, place the wax warmer in an area where it will not be disturbed.

Next, place one tablespoon of the fragrance oil in the dish of the wax warmer. Make sure to measure out the right amount of oil so you don’t overfill it. Finally, light the candle or lighter and place it close enough to the wax warmer so the oil can heat up.

Once the oil is heated up, you can enjoy the scent of your favorite fragrance throughout your room. It’s really that simple! Just remember to keep an eye on the wax warmer and to never heat it up for more than twenty minutes at a time. Enjoy!.
