A day at Scentsy {Giveaway} Closed

Posted by  ·  November 19, 2011  ·  Last Updated: November 19, 2011

Recently I was treated to a fabulous day at Scentsy headquarters. I have used and enjoyed Scentsy products, but I really didn’t know much about the company. I walked away with a new respect for Scentsy! This day had quite an impression on me and I will use the things I learned to run my own business.

This now wildly successful company started from humble beginnings in an old shipping crate because they didn’t even have enough money for office space! You can learn about their inspiring story here .

When I arrived I was welcomed to a beautiful hotel room with goodies and the room smelled amazing!  We learned about every aspect of the company. Great care  is taken in crafting the warmers, it can be seen in the rock to warmers video where we were shown the entire process.  They have the most unique warmers, each one is touched by human hands in their creation!

Loving these design boards!

We learned about the science behind the scents in a Fragrance 101 class. I will never look at scents the same again.

We enjoyed a fun Scentsy party.

I met the inspiring Heidi and Orville Thompson, who started Scentsy and I got to hang out with so many great friends!

Top row: Tenielle  Feisty, Frugal and Fabulous, Kari  Ucreate, Heidi and Orville Thompson (Owners of Scentsy), Juliet  Juicy Stuff, Shelley  House of Smiths, and me.

Bottom Row: Brooke All Things Thrifty, Kami  No Biggie, Shelley  How does She, Heather  Whipperberry, and me  Skip to my Lou.

I Loved my time at Scentsy!

EVERY single person that worked there, beamed as said that THEY had the best job at Scentsy. This can only happen with a unique company culture! Heidi and Orville dared to dream big  and guide their company with authenticity, generosity and simplicity. This was not an empty motto!  It was easy to see it hand been carefully injected into every aspect of their business.

Great care has been taken into growing this amazing business. Orville Thompson’s guiding principle is that in every task and interaction with others, “You give more than you take.” I love this! Can you imagine if this was everybody’s guiding principal?

Next time you see a Scentsy warmer you will know that this is a wonderful company that cares about the people that work for them and the products they sell!

If you’ve never been to a Scentsy party , consider hosting one and sharing a fun experience with your friends! If you don’t know anyone near you that sells Scentsy and you want to check it out, a great way to find a consultant is to use the Find A Consultant link on the Scentsy website.  If you’ve been looking for a way to make money from home consider signing up as a Scentsy consultant . You would be working for an amazing company.

I totally stole this picture but I just can’t help but share this group, doing what we all do best! Thank you to Scentsy for a wonderful day with wonderful friends … truly inspiring!

Do you want to try Scentsy?


There is no way I could spend all that time enjoying their products without offering something to YOU! Thanks to the wonderful, and I do mean {wonderful}, folks at Scentsy they were more than happy to offer you a…

Exclusive Reader {Giveaway}

Scentsy is giving away 5 plug in warmers and 5 bars.  That means five readers will each win a plug in and a bar of their choice!

If your new to Scentsy let me tell you what it is :

How it Works: Fragrant wax is heated in a decorative ceramic warmer using a low-watt light bulb. The wax slowly melts, infusing a room with fragrance.

Scentsy Wickless Candles are the simplest and safest way to bring memory-filled fragrances into a home. With no wick and no flame, there’s no worry or mess. And, the wickless candle warmers add color and style to holiday décor.  These are the only thing I would use in my house. No smoke = No fire danger.

Aren’t these cute plug in warmers?  Available now through the exclusive holiday collection.

Scentsy is Sold through more than 130,000 Independent Consultants.

To find out more and locate your very own Scentsy consultant visit www.scentsy.net .
