Is Scentsy Safe?

A question everyone asks is “Is Scentsy safe to use in my home?”   Scentsy produces a worry-free product line. Let’s break down some of the reasons why you should us Scentsy products.

No smoke, No soot, No lead.

The only thing that releases into the air is fragrant oil molecules by using a lightbulb to WARM the wax, there is no flame to ignite.

There are NO harmful VOC's released.

This one needs a little science behind the explanation. We all hear Volatile Organic Compounds and get scared, right? The word volatile just sounds bad. But in the scientific world, volatile is defined by a substance’s ability to evaporate. So, you can consider water as a VOC, and water shouldn’t scare us. 

Did you know that anytime you smell something – anything – that it’s because you are inhaling a volatile organic compound? Those fresh flowers that smell so good? Volatile organic compounds. That fresh sliced watermelon? Yep, VOC’s. Without volatile organic compounds we would live in a scent-free world. And that’s no fun!

Scentsy complies with leading authorities:

All EPA regulations

The International Fragrance Association’s Code of Practice

The European Union’s REACH requirements

The California Air Resources Board regulations

All of these authorities above restrict the use of ingredients that are dangerous for the environment and the consumer.

Scentsy products do not contain any nut or mineral oils. The products are formaldehyde-free, gluten free, BPA-free, egg-free and lead-free.

Now I know some Scentsy scents like Baked Apple Pie smell good enough to eat but don’t do it. The products are not meant to be ingested. They are made to be warmed, sprayed, laundered, and diffused. Scentsy is made for your enjoyment.

So spray that Room Spray! Warm that wax! Diffuse those oils! Enjoy your Scent Paks and Scent Circles!

 I wouldn’t use it in my home around my kids and pets if it weren’t.

Happy Sniffing To You!
