2nd Place – $101 Scentsy Gift Set


Scentsy started in 2005 after two busy moms presented an idea for a safer and healthier alternative to traditional wick and fire candles. Scentsy wants to help you warm the heart, enliven the senses, and inspire the soul. Currently Scentsy offers wax bars in over 80 different fragrances and over 75 different warmers in three different sizes. Scentsy has a patented technology that uses a low watt light bulb to warm a wax with a low melting temperature. This ensures lower temperatures to avoid burns and no open flames to avoid fire risks. As well, there are no toxins being released into the air, thus a safer and healthier way to make your house smell wonderful! Scentsy also offers a lot more than just warmers and wax though! Scentsy also has room sprays, scent circles, travel tins, buddies & baby buddies for the little ones in your life, and scent paks. On top of that Scentsy also has a layers line that includes great products like shower gel and cream and bath tablets, body butter and body lotion, body spray and solid perfume, dryer disks and wash whiffs, and hand soaps and hand creams. Check out my website to learn more information and shop these great products!

    I don’t know whether it’s just me or iff perhaps everybody else experiiencing issues with
    your site. It appears aas though ome of the written text within your content
    are running off the screen. Can someone else please provide feedback and let me know if this is
    happening to them as well? Thhis could be a issue with my web bbrowser because
    I’ve had this happen previously. Thanks

  5. I am really enjoying the theme/design of your site. Do you ever run into any web browser compatibility issues?
    A couple of my blog visitors have complained about my
    site not working correctly in Explorer but looks great in Opera.

    Do you have any advice to help fix this issue?

    • Rachel says:

      We are not very compatible with Explorer and encourage our readers to use Mozilla/Firefox when they contact us about having issues.
