What Exactly is a Candle Warmer?

When you join Scentsy you will become very familiar with a product called a candle warmer. This is a product I knew very little about before I joined Scentsy. Basically, a candle warmer is an electric device designed to melt a candle or scented wax. In the process of melting the candle the warmer causes the candle to release its scent throughout the room in which it is located. The candle warmer is specifically designed to be used only in conjunction with candles in jars and not with the thin, tapered style candles or candles that do not have containers large enough to hold all the melted wax. Many candle warmers have a built-in bowl in which the candle is placed for the purpose of collecting excess melted wax. Candle warmers allow the candles to emit the scent they would otherwise emit if lit. However, by using the candle warmer you will avoid creating a potential fire hazard. You will also avoid any unwanted soot or mess.

 

I have fond memories when I was young around Christmas time when my mother would light candles around the house. However, for young children sometimes the allure of a lit candle is too much of a temptation. I remember I liked to dip my finger in the molten wax and let it harden on my finger. I also enjoyed being around the flame. Looking back on this I can now see what a potential hazard these candles created as I could have easily, accidentally started a fire by fooling around with these candles. I also could have burned myself. Luckily none of this ever happened.

 

Candle warmers are a great way to enjoy the scent of the candles without the worry that a candle might otherwise entail. For this reason candle warmers make a great gift for couples with small children in their house. This is especially true during the Christmas season. As I said, once you join Scentsy you will become intimately familiar with this subject. Happy Holidays!
