Home Parties

A few years ago I was invited to a Scentsy party by a woman in our ward. I had no clue what Scentsy was so I declined. When I joined the Church some years ago I was invited to every home party you can think of: Princess crystal, candles of every kind, Avon, Mary Kay, Tupperware, lingerie, Pampered Chef, jewelry, etc. You name it and I received an invitation to it. I wondered if I had fool written across my forehead. Oh, I'd be polite and buy something, usually the cheapest thing on the list just to get out of there. But it didn't take long for this fool to get wise. I finally declined after a friend and I had enough stuff from those parties to start a new home. Truthfully, I was just trying to be nice and try to fit in a new place, church, etc. It wasn't my usual habit to attend home parties like that. I started declining the invitations and when I moved here 6 years ago I made it clear that I was fully stocked on anything they were selling and didn't do home parties. That's worked out well.

Then one day about 2 years ago now I had a doctor's appointment with a doctor and his reception room smelled wonderful. I asked the receptionist what it was and she said Scentsy and showed me the warmer and how to change the wax and all about it. I was sold and worked diligently to find a Scentsy representative. And as they say, I've never looked back. Noooooo, I do not and will not sell it, but I tell anyone who will listen how great this stuff is. And the headquarters for it is right here in Idaho, just down the road about 10 miles. Even better. I can support my state's own economy.

So if you've never heard of it, let me be the first to tell you it's the best, cleanest way to scent your home. I LOVE it! And I think you would also. I seriously doubt you'll be disappointed at all. They are simply wonderful. I get NO compensation for telling you anything here.

I have a plug-in in my living room.

And a full size warmer in my kitchen, which actually transfers fragrances pretty much all over our home.

These are just some of the fragrances. I believe there are over a hundred of them and I've smelled them all. My favorites are:

Lush Gardenia - oh, you'll not believe how wonderful it is.
Clean Breeze
French Kiss
Enchanted Mist
Inner Peace
Pima Cotton

Those scents more than any others just make your house smell good naturally—just a fresh clean smell. I like the baking scents also, but I don't buy them because I don't want people to think I'm baking. I hate baking!! Or cooking! ;-) Just want it to smell good and my granddaughter has told me she wants her house to smell just like mine. I gifted her with a full size warmer and a plug in while we were there recently and she was thrilled. When you grandchildren notice your house smells so good you know you're doing something right.

Just a few of the scents:

Just thought you'd like to see a new one I really like. Pretty blue and brown.

My full size one is the Renaissance one below. They have them in all colors and every single decorating style you can imagine.

French, Italian, religious, sports, military, beachy, whimsical, woodsy, everything.

These are coming out the first of March and I guess you can see which ones I'll be buying for th' house, right? I can't wait.

Just thought this was a gorgeous shade of blue also. Claudia, are you listening? I know you love blue.

Pamper yourself. Go buy one.


  1. I wish they had the in Australia, oh well I will just have to keep looking:)

  2. yeah I love scentsy..have alot of the baking ones best..and love cozy fireside..smells like christmas to me..have had a party too.;)

  3. lovely! I wish I could have something like that in my house, but unfortunately, I am allergic to scents and things like that. I remember before I was allergic how wonderful it was! I hope you are having a good day!

  4. Oh what a colorful post, I can almost smell all the goodies. I will be back to check them out better. No parties for me anymore either. Been there done that. Never again.

  5. this post cracked me up! I'm with Heather, scents make me sneeze and sputter, but I enjoyed your descriptions and enthusiasm.

  6. Hey Sweetie! Oh' I'm a scent lover and bet I would enjoy these. I've been seeing them all over blogland but haven't tried one yet. It's looks alot safer than candles.

    Have a wonderful day.
    Love and hugs...Tracy :)

  7. I used to work with a Scentsy representative and her office always smelled HEAVENLY. In fact, you could smell her office while coming down the hallway. I didn't buy anything from her, but I received my first Scentsy warmer as a Christmas gift...and now I don't know anyone who sells it. I sure wish I would get an invitation to a party!!!

  8. Oh my YES! I love Scentsy too! I have FOUR of the things. :-) I have the one with the little bird on the stinking cute.... and three of the plug-ins... In fact, the white one like you have and two of the black printed ones.... I wish they had had the blossom one when I bought mine. It's so cute! My favorite scent is Silhouette...I don't know why I think it smells like my Mum, but it's like having her around all the time!.... I love it that they don't smoke up the house too.

    Whoa girlie... You are allllllllll set for computer love at your house, aren't 'ya? I actually just bought the 64 gig itouch....and it's the BEST thing I've ever done for myself. I am CRAZY about the thing. I could have bought a laptop for the same price after I added the Bose headphones, the case, the plugs, and the BEST thing ever..... Zagg invisible shield.... It will NEVER scratch....and worth every penny. I've been going to post about it for awhile now.... I wanted something to put our music on...this holds about 42 gazillion songs..... I looked at so many different things.... i pad.... and netbook too, but finally went with this.... So glad I chose the itouch. It's entertained me in many a line while I'm waiting. :-)

    So happy to hear from you. I was actually just thinking about you yesterday and didn't get over to visit!



  9. Hi Connie,
    Oh yes I know what you mean about home parties..Me too, I have been to everyone under the sun. My daughters have a few of the Scentsy Candles and they do smell wonderful!!!
    Have a sweet day and big hugs, Elizabeth
    P.S. are you feeling better now..

  10. my daughters both bought something like that at the garden/patio show in Portland this w/e

    Smelled wonderful

  11. Well unless my friend's shop sells them, we don't have that around here, but you do make a good sales pitch. I use Tyler candle oil with the sticks and I have my favorite scent---High Maintenance and Fleur de lis.
    Now the best part about your post today is the adorable picture of Miss Caroline. She is growing in leaps and bounds and just as sweet looking as ever. Best eye candy for today. Love and hugs, Pat
