Rewind my life to pre-children, around 15 years ago. It's December and I am shopping...in New York!
One thing that immediately brings the memory to the fore, is the smell of apple and cinnamon. Seems like a strange association doesn't it? Yet I can so clearly remember both Saks Fifth Avenue and Macy's stores were heavily scented with these fragrances. Decorated with stunning Christmas ornaments throughout, the air was tingling with the aroma. Countless times since my exciting shopping experiences in one of the most fabulous cities in the world, these same scents today, will bring back these wonderful memories as if it were yesterday.
Scents provide one of the most powerful links to our memories. There is scientific basis to this.
Having been a fully qualified aromatherapist prior to the arrival of my family, one thing I do miss these days is scent. Nice scents! Sadly I have been unable to burn my essential oils due to actual flames and the safety fears I have of these around my children.
Allow me to introduce the Scentsy experience:

A massive range of beautiful aromas available
Scentsy is an American company that launched here in Australia on September 1st 2013. Scentsy began nine years ago in the United States. It has since become a huge success in America, Europe, Mexico, Puerto Rico Guam and Canada.
So how does it work? A heated element ceramic burner warms a specially formulated wax. The wax is entirely safe with no flame, no soot and no smoke. Burning a Scensty burner in your home creates a beautiful atmosphere. There are a huge 65 scents to choose from in their range.
Let me just say, I have been in fragrance Heaven since I have been using mine!
I was sent a box load to try for review. There are extraordinary fragrances with names such as:
White Tea And Cactus, Luna, 'Jet, Set, Go,' Lime And Kiwi Cantaloupe and Black Raspberry And Vanilla to name a few from their extensive range. The fragrance 'bars' themselves come in small packs of eight wax squares which snap off. They can be melted individually as they are or blended together to create your own atmosphere in limitless possibilities.
To use, simply place a small cube in your ceramic burner, plug the burner into the wall and switch it on. That's it!
Within around 20 minutes my house began to smell sensational. What I loved most about the fragrances is that they smell natural. The aromas are like expensive fragranced candles but with definite advantages: There is no smoky smell (a downside of candles) and no nasty chemical smell (like home air sprays).
Best of all, there are no dangers whatsoever. The Scensty burners warm to release the fragrance but do not get hot. They are safe to touch. Even the wax cubes, which melt into liquid are only lukewarm to touch. The wax is non-toxic and food-grade so of no harm if ingested by curious kids. (Naturally, do supervise your children and still use caution wherever the burners are being used).

The range of burners available are extremely attractive and there is a large selection to choose from. Every home décor has been considered. Everything from chevron designs to plain designs can be chosen from their extensive catalogue.
Scentsy offer more than just wax and burners. There is also a laundry range, children's range (featuring gorgeous soft toys which contain a safe, sealed scented sachet), Scentsy room sprays and a bath and body range. There is a Scentsy product to suit every individual or family.
I really am hooked on it now!
