Classic Scentsy Bar Fragrances

Scentsy Bars are unique and of best quality. Over the past 7+ years, I have fallen in love with my Scentsy fragrances! When I think about some of time-honored scents, I think of Coconut Lemongrass, Welcome Home, Black Raspberry Vanilla, Sweet Pea & Vanilla, and Perfectly Pomegranate to name a few.

Scentsy Bars are loved by many and I have many Scentsy customers whose favorites are from the Classic Scentsy Fragrance Collection.

Let’s talk a little about the five Classic Scentsy Bars listed above.


Coconut Lemongrass – one of my personal favorites! To me, there is nothing better then to have your home smelling fresh and clean and that is exactly what coconut lemongrass does for me. The perfect blend of coconut and lemongrass makes my home smell like I have just dusted. Now, in the country, sometimes you can dust and 10 minutes later you need to dust again so having Coconut Lemongrass Scentsy going is a perfect way to make it seem my house is perfectly dusted all the time. 😉

Welcome Home – what better description than that! To me the words Welcome Home bring a warmth and comfort that only being home can do for you. The welcoming scent of cinnamon is perfect. I know that traditionally cinnamon is a fall or winter scent but for me it is an all year round scent. I know my grandma loved Welcome Home and it was very fitting that in her final days on this earth, her daughters had her Scentsy warmer going and Welcome Home warming. It still brings a smile to my face every time I smell Welcome Home as I think of my grandma and how much she meant to me and the great memories I have of her.

Black Raspberry Vanilla – what a refreshing scent! This one is an all-time favorite with customers young and old! Who doesn’t like the scent of dark berries warmed with a hint of vanilla? Black Raspberry Vanilla is a perfect scent to brighten up the room – light and refreshing.

Sweet Pea & Vanilla – another all-time favorite! If you like Black Raspberry Vanilla, you are sure to love Sweet Pea & Vanilla. The Sweet Pea in this Scentsy Bar is combined with the perfect blend of raspberries and vanilla. What a great fragrance for a young ladies bedroom.

Perfectly Pomegranate – my top seller for the “fruity” Scentsy bars! This scent is a true classic with pomegranate and sweet berries. If you want a perfect refreshing fruity scent for a front office or your family room, this one is perfect! It’s not too heavy and not too light – it is perfectly balanced.

Here are 6 Scentsy Bars I would recommend for the Fall and are available NOW!

Baked Apple Pie – this Scentsy bar brings back memories of my mom baking for the holidays! She would make with care the baked apple pies – flaky crusts and ripe apples mixed with cinnamon. Baked Apple Pie is always best served warm with a little vanilla ice cream don’t you agree?

Cider Mill – the Cider Mill Scentsy bar is a favorite – reminds me of sipping warm apple cider around a early fall evening around a fire pit with friends.

Cinnamon Vanilla – a perfect blend of vanilla beans and cinnamon. A customer favorite.

Pumpkin Roll – YUM! That’s what first comes to mind when I smell this Scentsy bar! Holidays, especially Thanksgiving just wouldn’t be complete without a pumpkin roll! And this Scentsy fragrance hits a home run with this one!

Salted Caramel Cupcake – Sweet and gooey! The Salted Caramel Cupcake is full of creamy caramel scent with hints of cocoa and buttery cupcakes. Good enough to eat but remember, it’s a Scentsy bar!! 🙂

Welcome Home – A real classic. Welcome home is a perfect scent to welcome your guests into your home. The warm scent of cinnamon is very inviting.

Don’t wait to get yours!! These Scentsy bars are NOT being discontinued but the 10% off sale ends August 31!



Christmas Shopping DONE

How many times do you get to December and wish you could say your Christmas shopping was done? Well, Scentsy has a simple way to get that completed AND you could be done with your shopping by September 1st. Wouldn’t that be nice? And what would be even better? A sale!!

For the month of August, most everything in the Spring/Summer Scentsy catalog is 10% off! And that includes most of the combine and save packages!

Need an idea for your mom or grandma? My grandma LOVED butterflies so the Madame Butterfly Scentsy Warmers would have been perfect for her – I still got one for my mom to remember. Do you have someone in your life that is all about chickens/roosters? Scentsy has a Rooster warmer that is sure to please them or the Coop Wrap with a Scenty Silhouette  Warmer!

And what about those men in your life? Well, those man caves need to smell good too! Some great Scentsy warmes that I would suggest for the men are, the Lone Star or Hardwood. Of course, there are many more Scentsy Warmers to choose from.

Now to those special friends – you know who they are! Those friends that are always there for you when you need a helping hand, a shoulder to cry on, or just someone to hang out with! For these friends you need a special Scentsy Warmer. I would suggest Chasing Fireflies, Jane or one of our beautiful Lampshade Collection Scentsy Warmers.


And let’s not forget the kids in your life! Scentsy Buddies are a huge hit! Not only are these buddies cute and cuddly, they also come with a Scent Pak to make them smell amazing! And maybe your little ones need a little light in their room – the Tiger’e Eye is a great one! This beautiful warmer ever so slowly changes colors and is mesmerizing.


What are waiting for? Get shopping! All these suggestions I have given you for Scentsy product is available NOW at 10% off!


Traveling Scentsy Style – Part 6

Oh the places Scentsy has taken me – Canada, Alaska, San Francisico, Hawaii, and Boston to name a few. We still have a few more destinations Scentsy has taken me before this “Traveling Scentsy Style” blog is caugt up! I’m not done yet.

The 2011 Scentsy Incentive Trip was a family trip! Unlike the previous Scentsy trips where I could earn for myself and one guest, this one I had the opportunity to earn enough points to take my WHOLE family – my husband and our 3 children! And, it was to DisneyWorld – the place of imagination and music, fireworks and BIG dreams!!

I had always wanted to take our children to DisneyWorld but hadn’t yet had the chance to do so.


The 2011 Magical Memories Incentive Trip qualification started August 1, 2010 and ended January 31, 2011. As the Disney quote goes, “All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them”. Well, I dreamed BIG, worked my Scentsy business, helped my team members start and build their Scentsy business and by January 31, 2011, I had earned enough points to not only take my whole family to DisneyWorld, I had earned enough to take a total of 6!!

I have a niece that was graduating high school in May of 2011 and guess what she got as her graduation present? Yep, you guessed it, a trip to DisneyWorld! She filled the last spot of our trip for 6!

What a great time we all had! And, as in the past, Scentsy took care of EVERYTHING! We boarded the plane and from there we were again pampered and had a carefree vacation! Food, hopper passes, Disney character breakfast, Scentsy night only at Typhoon Lagoon, and a farewell dinner and private area to watch the Epcot show were just some of the highlights of the week.

My kids still talk about the AMAZING time they had. Their favorite? The Aerosmith Rollercoaster! And believe me, a couple years ago when I had the opportunity to go back to DisneyWorld with my daughter’s senior class, the first thing she took her friends to was that rollercoaster.

The fun doesn’t stop here because guess what? Scentsy is again offering a FAMILY Incentive trip!! And it is to DisneyWorld!!! Yes, you read that right! Scentsy’s Incentive Trip for 2016 is a Family Trip  to DisneyWorld! The qualification period just started August 1, 2015 and ends January 31, 2016. There is PLENTY of time to earn this trip!! So, what are you waiting for? Let’s earn this trip together!!


Business Life Struggles

Ok blog friends, WARNING, this is a little on the personal side of a blog and not just Scentsy. 🙂

Have you ever worked really hard on something – I mean REALLY hard and you planned, constructed, planned some more and put in weeks of intense work to have it not work out the way you planned it? Well, it feels AWEFUL – you may feel discouraged and sad.

This is exactly what happened tonight to my dear baby brother (no, he isn’t a baby anymore but he is the youngest of 7 children and that makes him the “baby”). He worked so hard on a project to make our family business better. He planned, he engineered, and yet, the project isn’t working the way it should. I know he is discouraged and dissapointed but you know what? I believe in him and know that he will figure out what needs to be done and even though he doesn’t have the time right now to fix it, he will adjust and have it going bigger and better for next year’s season.

How many times did Edison fail before the light bulb worked? And how did he replied to that? He replied he had not failed but had found many ways the light bulb didn’t work! What a great perspective! Attitude is key! Don’t EVER give up on a dream or a goal just because it didn’ work the first time. Make adjustments, keep going forward and you will have success!! I’m sure my brother is hoping it doesn’t take as many steps for this project to work as it did the light bulb!! 😉

Oh the joys of farming!

This too will be an amazing machine soon – the beast coming summer of 2016! Never giving up!


The Scentsy Mission

Have you ever wondered what Scentsy really stands for? What they are wanting to accomplish? Well, here is The Scentsy Mission:

“To bring value to the world by providing an industry-leading, family–friendly business opportunity selling creative, artistic, high-quality products that warm the heart, enliven the senses and inspire the soul.”

What does it mean to “warm the heart, enliven the senses and inspire the soul”? Well to me here’s what it means:

Warm the heart — make someone feel good

Enliven – intensify, build

Inspire –  help you to be the best you can be

With Scentsy warmers and Scentsy bars you are creating a scent in your home. It may be a scent that reminds you of something or someone or it may to have a warm and welcoming scent to welcome your guests. Scent is meant to help you feel happy, to invoke memories, and that is exactly what Scentsy does. And the process of making you happy (enliven) your scent experience is intisified (enliven) as you remember or relax or just feel good that your home is filled with amazing Scentsy fragrance! I am so very thankful to have Scentsy in my life as it has helped me to be the best me I can be (inspire). From the home office to members on my team, people inspire me everyday to want to do more for others, to be the best me!

Are you doing something you LOVE and ENJOY? Do you wake up with the intent of helping others feel loved? Do you WARM the hearts of others, ENLIVEN and INSPIRE them? That, my friend is something I hope that I strive to do on a daily basis. Do I alway succeed? Nope! But tomorrow is always a new day and though I fall short on some days, I will start with intent every day.


LAST CHANCE to Purchase these Scentsy Products

Scentsy has a new catalog twice a year – we have a spring/summer catalog that is good from March to August and the fall/winter catalog goes from September to February.

Traditionally, Scentsy has a 10% off sale in the last month of a catalog. And that is the case this month as most everything in the Scentsy spring/summer catalog is 10% off!

But, that isn’t all. With the ending of a Scentsy catalog comes the end also to some of the Scentsy products we have come to love. The Scentsy warmers  and Layers by Scentsy products being discontinued will not be back but some of the Scentsy fragrances will be. However, there is not guarantee which of the fragrances will be back in the spring/summer 2016 catalog so if you love a scent, stock up!

There is just 2 weeks left before the end of August, the end of the 10% off sale and the dreaded saying goodbye to these Scentsy products so be sure to get them before they are gone!! And some will be gone for good.


Traveling Scentsy Style – Part 5

If you have been reading my blogs about my travels with Scentsy, you KNOW how much I love them! Scentsy knows how to pamper and make their consultants feel loved.

Scentsy truly is the most generous company I know. Sure, they are in business to make money (as we all are) but what they do for their consultants is spectacular. They know that taking care of those that work hard is the best motivation.

The summer Scentsy incentive trip for 2010 was “More Parties, More Prizes”. Scentsy consultants were given the opportunity to earn prizes and the top prize was a trip to Boston! There were many amazing prizes to earn like iPads, bicycles, sewing machines, and cameras, and I had many friends that had their eye on other prizes but I had my eye on Boston. Scentsy awarded the top 100 earners an all expenses paid trip to Boston for two!


In August, I received an email letting me know that my husband and I were Boston bound! Late September 2010, we were headed to Boston for an all expenses paid vacation! Scentsy took care of every detail! We experienced a dinner cruise in the Boston Harbor, breakfast at Fenway Park (and an private tour of the stadium – even got to stand in the “Green Giant” and got our picture taken down by home plate), and a city excursion. What an amazing time!

Every Scentsy trip we are blessed with we are also blessed with new friends and getting to see friends we have already met. It truly is like a family reunion every time we go on a Scentsy trip or go to a Scentsy event.

Boston was our first Scentsy incentive that included our Canadian Scentsy consultants. I was blessed to meet and become friends with them. What an wonderful opportunity Scentsy is worldwide!

Speaking of worldwide, Scentsy is now in the USA, Canada, Mexico, Germany, United Kingdom, Ireland, Austria, France, Spain, Australia, and New Zealand! In just 11 years of being a company, Scentsy sure has come a long way!!

I have never had another job that pays me to do what I love AND sends me on vacation! Thank you Scentsy!!

Until next time….

Remembering Zach

Instead of Scentsy, this blog is personal.

Today would have been my nephew’s 21st birthday. I remember his mom coming to my house (which was closer to the hospital than her’s at 45 minutes away) to “wait to see if this was labor”. He came into this world loved by so many and left being loved by so many more.

May 26, 2007 will be a day that changed our lives forever. In a tragic accident, we lost our nephew, my brother and sister-in-law lost their oldest son and my parents lost a grandson.

Zach was a 12 year old boy full of life. Just the night before we were decorating for a niece’s high school graduation. Our community is VERY SMALL and there were just 4 seniors graduating from the school the next day. My family is VERY CLOSE and we were all out helping to decorate. Zach was using a air compressor to air up balloons. I will never forget the smile on his face as he was doing his “job”. I was “supervising” the decorating as I was playing and holding Zach’s 6 month old sister. Well, Zach accidentally popped one of the balloons and it startled his baby sister. I said, “Be careful Zach, you don’t want another to pop and scare Ella.” Well, with that mischievous smile he could have, he put another balloon on the hose and ever so slowly and with intent, he would put in a HUGE burst of air. He wasn’t be naughty – he was having fun and enjoying life. And for the record, he never popped another balloon the whole night.

My son was 10 months older than Zach and they were like brothers. They spent so much time with each other – either at our house or at my brother’s. They spent many hours playing, being mischievous, picking on their siblings, and planning. They planned – when they graduated, they were going on a road trip and when they were able to go to prom one of them would take Katie. Well, Zach went home to be with the Lord too soon to see either plan but Wesley held up his side and when he was able to go to prom, his date was Katie. There were tears of remembering but they had a fun night. The road trip I hope will come this next summer. We still have the “red van” that trip was to take place in but I think it will stay here as Wesley and his cousins go on the trip. 🙂

Zach also had a contagious laugh. Shortly after he died, his mom found a voice recording of him on her computer. She shared it with us and what a laugh. I still listen to is every once in a while just to hear his voice and laugh and to remember.

You know, Zach wasn’t here on earth for long – only 12 years. But he left an impact on us all. He loved life, he loved his family (especially his baby sister), and he LOVED baseball.

I wonder what he would be doing if he were still here. Would he be playing baseball at a college somewhere? Would he be a fun-loving joking young man? These are questions that won’t be answered but it’s okay. The memories will never fade.

I am writing this one just to remember Zach and the special boy he was and to encourage us all to love those around us everyday. We never know what each day holds and each day is a gift.

Joining Scentsy

Joining Scentsy is one of the best decisions I have made. Back in July 2008 I had no idea that I would be where I am today. All I knew is that I loved the way Scentsy filled a room with scent.

You see, my husband and I had walked into an farm service agency office that July afternoon and a wonderful scent met us as we walked into the door. It was one of those scents that we looked at each other immediately and said, “We have to find out what that scent is!” Of course, I had no problem asking the ladies what candle they were buring. They informed me that it was no candle – it was Scentsy! What was Scentsy? I had never heard of it before. The lady who had it on her desk invited me back to see it in action. There is was, a simple Scentsy warmer on her desk and the light bulb was warming the Scentsy fragrance Fried Ice Cream. I was immediately hooked.

I left the office with a catalog in hand. I was excited to see all the Scentsy warmers and over 80 Scentsy fragrances that were available. I went home, looked Scentsy up online (isn’t the internet a great information source). The very next day I joined Scentsy to be a consultant and I didn’t even have any Scentsy in my home. 🙂 What was I, a farmer’s wife, living in the most rural area possible, doing starting a home-based business? How was I going to make a business work where I lived? You know, I really didn’t think about those questions. I just knew that Scentsy was something I wanted to have in my home and even if I purchased only for myself, I would be a happy person!

I am happy to tell you that 7 years later, I am still Scentsy strong! I don’t just sell to myself – haven’t since the first week I was a consultant. My customers are all over the United States and yes, I have had customers from Canada and Mexico. My team has grown from just me to team members from all over the world. And there is room for more! I absolutely LOVE to help guide my team members as they start and build their Scentsy business.

Why am I retelling my story? Because I am here to tell you that IT DOESN’T MATTER where you live, what obsticales may be in your path – YOU CAN BE A SCENTSY CONSULTANT! Sure, I have learned that I have to “think out of the box” a little more than someone that lives in a populated area. But, I know that when I put my mind to it and if I continue to work by Scentsy business, it can and will succeed!


Come along! Let’s work together to make your Scentsy business the next success story!
